Dear MSNBC,

Fuck you.

Ok yeah, I just edited that out of the original post. Just speak from the heart.

MSNBC chose Romney to win the debate. He was after all the Governor of Liberal Massechussets and incase you haven't watched MSNBC you should know that it is very Democrat/liberal leaning.

Ridiculous. Especially when you consider that Paul came in second in Nevada and LA, he is the top fundraiser, and he has beaten Guiliani, what... 5 times now? Yet Guiliani gets more airtime?

I was so mad watching the debate at how they were so blatantly excluding him.

I hope it backfires.

Giuliani: 19.842%
Huckabee: 17.475%
Paul: 9.347%

You all know the press is biased against Ron Paul's Presidency.

Ron Paul is pro-America, they are not!

Interestingly these are numbers from an MSNBC blogger (see link in original post). Regardless, there is no way it will become a news story on their network that Ron was blackballed. They're not going to intentionally and blatantly shaft him and then report on it. And who else will? Fox?

How do these numbers compare with recent polling in Florida?

Can MSNBC dodge all our accusations by saying they gave them all "fair" time approximately in proportion to their polling numbers?

This chart (http://www.pollster.com/08-FL-Rep-Pres-Primary.php) suggests that McCain and Romney have been climbing, Giuliani falling, but they're still all pretty much bunched together at 20 to 25 per-cent.

Huck's somewhat lower, while Ron's bumping along with numbers a bit more than a third of Huck's.

I almost hate to raise this issue, because it's such a contrived standard to use, blatantly designed to reinforce their manipulations, but it's probably the excuse they'll use. <sigh>

I seriously don't get why they kept going to McCain. It was basically Candidate - McCain - Candidate - Candidate - McCain Rebuttal - McCain - Commercial - McCain - Candidate - McCain

They don't even make a pretense of being fair anymore. It is time to boycott sponsors.

Bias? Nah, it's just a service to us so it all fits easily in one YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjBwa0aiTdY).

Well, for those who haven't already, we can give MSNBC the "Ron Paul grassroots treatment" on their post debate poll.
Here's the ( broken ) link.

Anti-American old media are pushing McCain as "the one for the independents" shadowboxing Ron Paul out of the picture. Most of them are explicitly backing Rom, who is himself silent partner in the company that recently bought out, what's that little glom, conglomerate? Oh yeah, CLEAR CHANNEL.

Ron Paul was the only candidate I witnessed get *wild* applause - - especially in his first response. The mod anchor baby-bublet had to "remind the audience again to hold their applause until the end. Before the debate, the anchors mentioned that every candidate elected POTUS in the past ~30 years initially won Florida. I hear that Florida may be the worst Diebold (Now named Premier) Den in the country. Its machines are infallible, its proprietary software (a secret recipe!)

That "30-second rule" only applied to Ron. I would light a cigarette to get away from Romney, and come back to find more Romney. Minutes, then cut to McCain, McCain asks Romney a question, Romney asks McCain a question, cut to Romney, ask everyone about the economy except the only economist on the stage.
