(FReeper thread from earlier today: Ron Paul Will Win Debate But Be Discredited)
[FOX News just declaired Ron Paul the winner in tonights debate....but Ron Paul's win has been discredited by Hannity]
Now to the article......:
An analyst at USAElectionPolls.com has recently published the frequency the top news sources mention each of the Republican candidates. As expected, the top tiered candidates were mentioned most often but by how much varied.
Their analysis found that the New York Times, USA Today, and CBS News were the fairest of all the news sources analyzed. The biggest "culprit" according to the web site was Fox News -- mentioning the Top 3 candidates almost five times as frequent as all the other candidates combined.
There were 13,000 references to Mitt Romney, 6,570 references to Rudy Giuliani, and 4,060 references to John McCain on the Fox News domain according to the Google searches that USAElectionPolls.com performed. Ron Paul was referenced the least of all candidates - 248 times.
The results suggest that Fox News mentions Mitt Romney in articles more than 50 times as frequent as they do Ron Paul. USAElectionPolls.com calls it "absurd" and continues on to say that in "no other news source is the disparity as large as it is on Fox News".

It looks like each presidential lineup from here on will have a comic relief candidate.
It’s only fair, the Dems have Mike Gravel.
It’s a conspiracy?
I think Rush Limbaugh is a Ron Paul supporter
People get paid to count this stuff?
Yeah, what we need is equal time. /sarc
I think that's a swell idea!
Thanks for that perspective!
ANOTHER PAUL THREAD! (Makes growling, snorting noises to convey the stereotype of Paul supporters)
We have a FReeper Fairness Doctrine.
Statement by the founder of Free Republic

I posted the following statement to our front page in response to the criticism I’m receiving lately as to not being fair and balanced and perceived mistreatment of trolls and assorted malcontents. Got news for all, I’m NOT fair and balanced. I’m biased toward God, country, family, liberty and freedom and against liberalism, socialism, anarchism, wackoism, global balonyism and any other form of tyranny. Hope this helps.
Statement by the founder of Free Republic:
In our continuing fight for freedom, for America and our constitution and against totalitarianism, socialism, tyranny, terrorism, etc., Free Republic stands firmly on the side of right, i.e., the conservative side. Believing that the best defense is a strong offense, we (myself and those whom I’m trying to attract to FR) support the strategy of taking the fight to the enemy as opposed to allowing the enemy the luxury of conducting their attacks on us at home on their terms and on their schedule.
Therefore, we wholeheartedly support the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes on known terrorist states and organizations that are believed to present a clear threat to our freedom or national security. We support our military, our troops and our Commander-in-Chief and we oppose turning control of our government back over to the liberals and socialists who favor appeasement, weakness, and subserviency. We do not believe in surrendering to the terrorists as France, Germany, Russia and Spain have done and as Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton and the Democrats, et al, are proposing.
As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty.
Free Republic is private property. It is not a government project, nor is it funded by government or taxpayer money. We are not a publicly owned entity nor are we an IRS tax-free non-profit organization. We pay all applicable taxes on our income. We are not connected to or funded by any political party, news agency, or any other entity. We sell no merchandise, product or service, and we offer no subscriptions or paid memberships. We accept no paid advertising or promotions. We are funded solely by donations (non tax deductible gifts) from our readers and participants.
We aggressively defend our God-given and first amendment guaranteed rights to free speech, free press, free religion, and freedom of association, as well as our constitutional right to control the use and content of our own personal private property. Despite the wailing of the liberal trolls and other doom & gloom naysayers, we feel no compelling need to allow them a platform to promote their repugnant and obnoxious propaganda from our forum. Free Republic is not a liberal debating society. We are conservative activists dedicated to defending our rights, defending our constitution, defending our republic and defending our traditional American way of life.
Our God-given liberty and freedoms are not negotiable.
May God bless and protect our men and women in uniform fighting for our freedom and may God continue to bless America.
Paulbearers whine more than any 3 year old I’ve ever seen.
Trans world news, Does that have something to do with cross dressing are something??
So are you now officially a Ru supporter?
Therefore, we wholeheartedly support the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes on known terrorist states and organizations that are believed to present a clear threat to our freedom or national security........
And Romney would likely get 50x the votes of Paul!
I’m sick of the Ron Paul “I’m a victim” routine.
Let me guess. Per post #13, this means I should discontinue my support of Paul because he disagrees with the 2nd paragraph of the post, right? (Never-mind that he agrees with all the rest of it) Look buddy, I've always said from the get-go that I disagree with Paul on an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. But on all the other issues, including the other half of foreign policy (non-interventionist, no more meddling) he is dead on. Paul supports border security and a missile defense. He supports a strong defense. He is adamantly pro-life and pro-2nd Amendment. He would still be better than all of the Democrats and Rudy/Romney/McCain combined.
So if there's going to be a purge of Paul supporters then I need to know. I can respect JimRob not supporting Paul based on the WOT (and I agree that we shouldn't withdraw ASAP) and I'll discontinue posting on said threads. Please remember though that this website is still dedicated to stopping socialism and corruption in government, and that's something that Paul is completely against.
My support of Paul is more strategic than it is conditional. Paul is reforging the old Reagan coalition again - libertarians, independents, swing voters, Reagan Democrats - back into the GOP. If Fred's the nominee, he's going to need these supporters, so it's important that Paul is heard even if you disagree with his foreign policy.
