The Daily Caller's Jamie Weinstein: Ron Paul’s path to the nominationSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Tue, 03/06/2012 - 08:52
If Ron Paul isn’t mentioned in an article that has some connection to the presidential race, you can be sure that you’ll hear from the Texas congressman’s legion of crazed fanatics.
No matter how irrelevant the story or peripheral it is to Paul, his “passionate” fans will insist that he was excluded because of some media conspiracy to marginalize him.
I concede that it is true that Paul has, in some cases, been treated unfairly by the media. He has been given less time to speak in debates than his polling merited at various points during the campaign.
But conversely, he has also been treated fairer in many cases than the other candidates in the race. So while Paul may get less time to speak during some debates, he is at least in the debate. If there existed a Rick Santorum Survival Report filled with racial invective, Santorum wouldn’t be in the race. The same goes for Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.
