Ron Paul Wins Fox News Poll; Fox Lies About Results

As this article in Nashville Is Talking puts it:

Ron Paul was clearly the most intelligent and well spoken candidate in the Fox News Republican debate in New Hampshire on Wednesday night. The response of the live audience was clear, as was the post debate Fox News Poll. Here are the results:

FOX NEWS DEBATE POLL - who won the debate?

33% - Ron Paul
18% - Mike Huckabee
15% - Rudy Giuliani

But Fox News both belittled the results and lied about how they were achieved. This video speaks for itself:

You cannot vote twice in the poll, as these pictures also clearly show.

This is just one example of how Fox twists the truth. If they lie about this, what else to they lie about? It is a question well worth pondering, especially considering this article from the New Yorker, which quotes a source at a NeoCon Institution in Washington:

They [the source’s institution] have “instructions” (yes, that was the word used) from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day; it will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects. It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don’t think they’ll ever get majority support for this—they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is “plenty.”

Be on the lookout, and consider these questions for the other news organizations:

...less subservient news organizations should ask certain questions, and keep asking them: Does the Administration expect the Iranian regime to fall in the event of an attack? If yes, what will replace it? If no (and it will not), why would the Administration deliberately set about to strengthen the regime’s hold on power? What will the Administration do to protect highly vulnerable American lives and interests in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world against the Iranian reprisals that will follow? What if Iran strikes against Israel? What will be the strategy when the Iranian nuclear program, damaged but not destroyed, resumes? How will the Administration handle the international alarm and opprobrium that would be an attack’s inevitable fallout?

Fox Lies Again!

FoxNews is now claiming that MITT ROMNEY won the text poll with 29% of the votes, and that Dr. Paul only recieved 25%.

Just yesterday, they were saying Romney only got 12%.

That's from the May debate.

Truth-telling and the Fox debate

Please read the paragraph below from an article I found:

"Paul has attracted a contingent of previously apolitical and even left-leaning Americans who support his call to pull all troops out of Iraq immediately and who like his reputation for opposing any legislation not linked to principles already expressed in the Constitution."

And this is in regards to how Fox split the screen and had Guilliani laughing at Paul when he was talking.... I know Paul's supporters already know this, but I also wanted to reiterate that in lieu of all those candidates who sounded all macho re the war, MSM does not want to broadcast the fact that...see below:

Military folks like Paul

By Mark Anderson, American Free Press

While opponents spend skads of cash, Paul runs fiscally sound political campaign

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RON PAUL is leading all other candidates—both Republicans and Democrats—in total campaign donations given by active military personnel and veterans.

Many people see this as vindication for his America-first, non-interventionist foreign policy position that he has emphasized during TV debates and at a series of rallies and other campaign activities across the country.

Since people naturally put their money behind those who most reflect their views and interests, the fact that Paul has received so much financial support from current and former American servicemen strongly suggests that they are dissatisfied with the never-ending police actions in Iraq and Afghanistan and want to bring the troops home—just as Paul has repeatedly advocated without equivocation. <

> However, Paul, who is one of 11 GOP candidates, comfortably leads the Republicans in military receipts. The next closest candidate to him in this regard is Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a Vietnam-era Navy pilot with $17,425 in total military and veteran donations.

The other Republicans don’t even compete; the next closest is Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, with a total of $3,851.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani received only $2,320. <

Who's smirking now??
