* Fox News' illegal Voter Supression * ATTN: Attorneys for RP

By continuing to say that South Carolina has a closed Primary, Fox News is engaging in Voter Suppression, and it is illegal.

Forget about e-mailing Fox News; some lawyers need to contact the SC Attorney General, and the Federal and SC Election Commissions (see below). An injunction against Fox News is in order.

Where are Attorneys for Ron Paul?


"Voter suppression is a strategy to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing people from exercising their right to vote. It is distinguished from political campaigning in that campaigning attempts to change likely voting behavior by changing the opinions of potential voters through persuasion and organization. Voter suppression instead attempts to reduce the number of voters who might vote against the candidate or proposition advocated by the suppressors.

"The tactics of voter suppression can range from minor 'dirty tricks' that make voting inconvenient, up to blatantly illegal activities that physically intimidate prospective voters to prevent them from casting ballots. Voter suppression could be particularly effective if a significant amount of voters are intimidated individually because the voter might not consider his or her single vote important."

FOX Lies About SC Primary

"FOX is clearly trying to sabotage the election by claiming falsely that it is a closed primary. Here is what the South Carolina Election Commission has to say:

"'Q. Do I have to be a registered Republican to participate in the Republican Presidential Primary?

A. No, S.C. does not have registration by party. The Presidential Primary is open to all registered S.C. voters.'"

Anybody who considers Faux News as a legit

news source, is a fool! Whether you agree with Canada's socialist policies or not, the Faux News branch was kicked out of Canada, because they LIED about the News. If I had the time, I would create a website like, MSMexposed.com I would subgroup all the networks, major newspapers and major blogs, and expose their lies by showing the empirical facts. If you targeted the main issues that effect Americans, and bypassed all the pop culture type info, it wouldn't be too difficult to accomplish. The radio-cons would be exposed in the process, because they get their news from the above groups listed. There are sites out there that claim to expose the lies, but they are politically motivate as liberal/communistor neoCon/Fascist biased.

"There are sites out there

"There are sites out there that claim to expose the lies, but they are politically motivate as liberal/communistor neoCon/Fascist biased."

And that is precisely how they have gotten away with it for so long! Really the media bias is easy for Americans to figure out, and we have. But liberals and conservatives blame each other for it. The two party establishments encourage this behavior as a form of misdirection. This is what Rush Limbaugh does all day long on his show.

What we need is a very bipartisan/independent source that would point out the bias as a whole, show people who owns what, where the money comes from, etc...

Ah, don't worry.

The first things I heard from this interview was, "Obama and Mitt" are losing the independent voters. The second thing I heard was, "Ron Paul surging". Those are the REAL headlines. The voters will figure out that it's not a closed primary. More discredit for Fox.

Contact the South Carolina Fox affiliates. Local affiliates are sometimes straight-shooters. Who can furnish a list?

I am appalled by the blatant lies. I guess they get away with it by saying "I think." Is that what we watch journalists for, for what they think when they are supposedly delivering the news? My journalism teacher would be rolling in his grave.

Ron Paul - should mention this in the debate tonight!

And remember supporters - South Carolina is an open primary.

It sounds to me as if they're worried Ron can win this one.

The guy at the end, Philip A.

The guy at the end, Philip A. Musser, who is spewing this nonsense has very strong ties to Romney and other neo-con candidates in other elections, and at one point even managed the budget of HUD.

If it wasn't already clear, Philip Musser is intentionally lying about the SC primary. As a "senior campaign advisor", it's his job to know this kind of stuff, so I doubt it was a mistake.

So what is it Philip A. Musser? Are you a liar or just incompetent when it comes to your job?

More info on Philip A. Musser:


I have contacted 3 local SC News Channels

WSPA and WYFF which cover the Greenville , Spartanburg and Anderson SC areas also known as upstate South Carolina informing them that there is some misinformation being spread on Fox News and CNN about SC GOP Primary being closed. Could they please clarify this important issue as it will have a direct impact on voter turnout at the primary.
Update: also contacted FOX 21 out of Greenville, local Fox Affiliate for the upstate SC area.

Awesome! Good job!

Thanks for the help!

What Program(s)?

I just wrote to the general and news e-mail addresses:


I asked them to stop reporting that it's a closed primary and to correct the record by reporting that it's an open primary. I didn't mention that I'm a Paul supporter because I fear they might tune out self-proclaimed Paul supporters.

If anyone can advise the specific program(s) that reported incorrectly on this issue, we can write to the particular program (see below), so if anyone knows please advise -- thanks:

Closed or Open Primary

In closed primary states, a voter must be a registered member of a party to vote in its primary. That's not the case in South Carolina, so any voter, regardless of political affiliation, is eligible to cast a primary vote.


We need people to hold signs

at the polling places to circumvent this (Make sure you are video taped..They might try and run you off). We might also file FEC complaints against Fox.
