CNN snubs Paul; supporters protest

The new independent website, http://www.ultimateronpaul.com/, has launched a petition to protest the treatment of Congressman Ron Paul on last night's Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

CNN, The Politico, and The Los Angeles Times -- the debate sponsors -- invited Ron Paul to participate. But then the moderator, CNN's Anderson Cooper, snubbed Paul and cut him off from participating in most of the debate. Paul was allowed only a couple of "cameo" appearances.

"Anderson Cooper's style of 'managed news' belongs in Russia or China, not the U.S.," says David Franke, Editor of UltimateRonPaul.com.

The petition adds: "Even the reporters for one of the sponsors, The Los Angeles Times, noted how Ron Paul was 'often left out.'"

The petition to the debate sponsors demands an apology to Congressman Paul, the barring of CNN's Anderson Cooper from moderating any future debates, and inclusion and fair treatment for Ron Paul in the future.

"Can't the U.S. media do better?" the petition asks.

The petition may be accessed at http://www.ultimateronpaul.com/current-petition/

Richard Viguerie from CPAC

Are you kidding me? You are quick to jump on the GOP and trash them when you have no proof they have done anything wrong, yet you won't support Mr. Richard Viguerie's attempt to get some justice? Do you all know who Richard Viguerie is? He's Mr. TRUE Conservative and influential within the GOP. I would say support this guy all you can....he's doing you a favor. He will get the press on this.

How is Richard Viguerie involved in this??

I got lost too...

Huckabee got snubbed too

I think the guy's nuts, but he has supporters too. They must be frustrated as well. Cast a wide net. All voices deserve to be heard.

ill support it, bump it

At One Point

Anderson Pooper explicitly promised Dr. Paul that he could weigh in "in about two minutes" on the conservative vs. liberal discussion. This was within the first 20 or so minutes. Let me add Monsieur Pooper rudely and directly cut Dr. Paul off before making the promise.

Roughly 70 minutes later, that promise was left unfulfilled. It was never meant to be fulfilled.

I can't even type what I think about Anderson Cooper for fear of being stripped of Habeas Corpus and rotting in a cell for the rest of my life.

Something cool I found, the Ron Paul Repository:

He lied... On purpose... To censor Ron Paul

The media is FIXING the race

watch this for fun Media-trix Matrix

Anderson Pooper - heh - like

Anderson Pooper - heh - like that.....
