FOX News shows its fairness and balance (updated)
(Please disregard this post. It was composed using erroneous information. My mistake.)
UPDATE II: Nope. Now it looks as though it's real, again. But for some reason, when I earlier perused the schedule at FoxNews.com, I could find no 6 January Manchester forum. This whole thing gets weirder and weirder. Original post follows:
Admittedly, I have taken a step backward from the Ron Paul effort in recent days, for a variety of reasons (plus a little bit of the unknown); but I still admire the Texas congressman's honesty, consistency, and tremendous ability to inspire.
So it makes as little sense to me as to anyone why FOX News would exclude Ron Paul from an upcoming GOP debate, yet would include, say, U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter.
Ron Paul's impressive fundraising totals are not due to lobbyists and special-interest groups. They are the results of a powerful (mostly online) community of individuals who desire to see Paul as GOP nominee and, ultimately, as President of the United States.
Likewise, Paul's poll numbers have risen because of countless grassroots organizers and volunteers working to get the message in front of "likely voters."
So what is it that disqualifies him from the debate? It really makes one wonder.
