A moment ago, I Goggled "Ron Paul ignored by media" and came up with 9,222 links. That's a lot of stories about someone being ignored. Here's what happened.
In last weekend's Iowa Straw Poll of GOP presidential candidates, the Texas congressman had an exceptionally strong showing, finishing a mere 152 votes behind the winner, Minnesota Rep.Michele Bachmann.
Mrs. Bachmann — or the "Queen of Rage," as Newsweek magazine dubbed her — followed her Saturday triumph with Sunday talk show interviews on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News Channel and CNN. Ron Paul appeared on none.
