To all of those who watched Wolf Blitzer interview Ron Paul Jan 10, regarding the racist allegations. His interview was fair, and gave Ron Paul a chance to clear the air. Unfortunately, CNN has cut and pasted this interview, and mixed it together with an earlier hit piece, and this was played over and over tonight (I watched in on Anderson Cooper), and totally smears Ron Paul. They have not shown most of what Ron Paul said.

I have taken the appropriate measures for myself, telling them that they lost me as a viewer, after winning me back from years of watching Fox News. I sent them a detailed letter, and told them I would be notifying all of my friends and family about this despicable editing.

I also said I would be boycotting any advertiser supporting them as well.

So, I am telling you guys now. We apparently mean nothing to anyone, but I guarantee our money and our ratings do. Think for yourselves, and make up your own minds. I do not have a youtube link to show you, but perhaps someone has posted something showing exactly what was said and how they put this attack piece together.

You can't base a mass boycott on unfair treatment regarding published racist filth.
IMO, Ron did his best and it's time to move on.

Anderson does not like Paul or his supporters. I gathered that much from the look on his face at the youtube cluster f&^%. Plus, who knows what hand he had in selecting those horribly unfair questions CNN asked.

The author's identity is an open secret in the Libertarian community - whether or not RP has ever gotten word of that secret, who knows. But he and/or the author would have to go public with that information, because no one else will.

All Media is expected to treat us unfair, we are a threat, one that must be dealt with. We are going to have get our message together.

the good news:
They are working overtime to trash us.

the bad news:
your average voter is a moron who doesn't even know what the federal reserve is.

Expect the "money for nothin" crowd to leave no stone unturned to bury Ron Paul and his ideas. We are a threat to their very way of life and will stop at nothing to silence us.

If you know, you have a moral responsibility to give it.

I thought Cooper was very tolerant. Ron Paul is a gay man's best friend because he doesn't look at people in groups.

I think it would be best to simply ignore it, and move on. Let it fade.

The debates last night have refilled our tanks, and it's time to keep pushing forward.

Move on, but Paul has droped the name of the next money bomb.

So that bomb as gotta be HUGE to help clear the name. We gotta give him what help we can, and this will give him a tool to clear it in the future.
