I know this is getting old, but just after Huckabee pulled out, the front page of CNN Politics 2008 showed McCain and Ron Paul together on the front page, along with Hillary and Obama. It was Paul's usual pouting picture, the absolute worst picture that exists of him, of course.

http ://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/

I figured, since we're now down to 2 candidates, they now HAVE to show Ron Paul as the second and other candidate running, so I didn't think much of it. Several minutes later, I came back to the site to see McCain with Huckabee listed as "out" and NO Ron Paul !

The total absolute blackout is amazing. This is a concerted effort like I've never seen it before. We are heading for some very troubled times, 1984 just about 30 years late.

I'm just posting this in case some documentary maker wants to collect all such omisions of Ron Paul in the 2008 elections.

BTW, the democratic race in Texas is a blast right now, with Hillary now in the lead.

How long will we have to wait for Ron Paul's picture to appear on CNN's politics page ?

My guess, is they'll keep Huck as "OUT" until the convention. Ron Paul's picture won't appear.

What do you guys think? They will of course show both Hillary and Obama.

The 2 man race for GOP nomination will definitly be ripe for challenging main stream media in a organized criminal enterprise. No where in history can someone be declared a long shot, and end up second and still be called a long shot. Not to mention the disinformation of how a Republican nomination is actually won. McCain does not have the election won for GOP nomination, a good shot but not in the bag.

LoL this is Florida 2000 all over again with the MSM. What about the other states that haven't voted yet? Don't they get a say? :p

I wonder if this will drastically effect the percentage McCain gets in the remaining states seeing as there is only 2 guys now. Then again Diebold doesnt help....I just have a hard time believing any results anymore.

They look at Paul like a Nader. The only time he will get attention is when his numbers have the potential to do some damage (like Nader's do for the dems). Since we're not third party, it's pretty much we don't exist the rest of the way out.
