Thank you for contacting the New York Times

To: Subject: Ron Paul

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for contacting us about The New York Times Election Guide 2008.

Currently on the results page, each candidate is ordered by the number of delegates received under The Times's delegate allocation standards.

For the candidates who have not received any delegates yet, which currently includes Rudy Giuliani, Duncan Hunter, Ron Paul and Fred Thompson, we have been using the candidates' ranking in national polls as the factor in deciding who to include, since the page is meant to be a guide to both the completed contests and the upcoming races.

The most recent Times/CBS News poll had Giuliani at 10%, Thompson at 8% and Paul at 5%. Other polls show similar trends -- see: http://www.realclearpolit... republican_presidential_nomination-192.html

If Ron Paul pulls ahead of Thompson or Giuliani in the delegate count, he'll be included on the page in place of the one he surpasses.

Paul and the other candidates in the lower tiers are all included in the individual state primary profiles with their results, as well as in the candidate profiles, finance pages and "where the candidates stand on the issues."

We appreciate your readership, and your taking the time to write to us.

Regards,

Kerry Scott

How do you like these guidelines, people? I say we get old fashioned with them and let them know (POLITELY) what we think. The email address is: redesign@nytimes.com

People Are Much Smarter Than This

The media leaving Ron Paul out may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. America likes an underdog and likes to debunk a good fraud. Soon the media will find they have shot themselves in the foot with this smear & ignore campaign and they will become even more irrelevant than they ever were before. American voters are not as stupid as the media and the political hacks would like to hope...the only exception I have seen so far are the way Clintons seem to be the teflon dons from dixie but one day they will get theirs hopefully we will see Dr. RP do a political lipo on the pants-suited princess and her red-nosed groveling panty chasing pimp.

Now get REALLY mad.

Once again they have TOTALLY LEFT OUT the SECOND place winner in NEVADA..Ron Paul with 14%

NY Times

I just checked www.realclearpolitics.com polls and it shows Paul ahead of RG in the Jan 19 Survey USA poll, and ahead of RG in 4 other polls on Jan. 18 for the South Carolina primary. I'm writing NY Times....

8 delegates??

I somewhere heard or read that Ron Paul has 8 delegates.. ??

This is SUCH BS!

Honestly...

Iowa delegates aren't finalized

Paul is projected to get 2 delegates based on the vote total, but that won't be official until the Iowa state convention in June. Huckabee's projected 30 delegates are also not counted by this standard.

Anyway, the Times explanation is facile - Paul has garnered more actual votes than Guiliani and Thompson. And as we get closer to each primary, their poll standing in that state declines. Look at Nevada. It's purely their own biased editorial decision. I wrote their ombudsman to complain (public@nytimes.com)

Does it mean if Ron paul doesn't win , Iowa can give there --->

---> delegates to someone else

They know he has 2 delegates.

I just seems like MSM is growing rather large gonads as less people seem to even care these days.

I fired off my email anyways.

I sent MSNBC an email yesterday and they responded by deleting my email with outreading it. (Per Outlook read receipt request).

That may just be their

That may just be their policy regarding receipt requests.

I saw a graphic on MSNBC

I saw a graphic on MSNBC yesterday. They were showing how Giuliani was behind the other candidates in delegates.

The graphic showed Thompson's 3 delegates from Iowa, it even showed Duncan Hunters 1 delegate from Wyoming.

Of course, Ron Paul, with 2 Iowa delegates, was left completely off the graphic- its as if he doesn't even exist.

Its bad enough when they show Thompson, rudy, Romney, McCain, and Huckabee but leave Ron Paul out, but when they include Mr. ZERO PERCENT, Duncan Hunter, and leave Ron Paul out, its appalling.

Brush off NYTcrapping

What a load of NYTcrap!

These are OFFICIAL RESULTS, yet NYT are not ashamed of excluding Ron Paul.

But let's brush them off as ridiculously desperate antagonists... Let's move on with our mission.

Unless

Unless Faux or someone took his 2 from Iowa away, yes

I guess

his two delegates from the Iowa caucuses don't count.

He HAS delegates! Doesn't he?

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Nice thinking

But Paul has delegates, last I saw....

Just ignore them and

Just ignore them and concentrate on winning more grassroots members.
