John Roberts reluctantly reveals Ron Paul's results of the SC debate twitter poll.

After Ron Paul was left off the graph the first time Fox News showed it Jon Roberts was forced to come back out to show the graph again after they received many a disgruntled message. This time the graph showed a much...clearer picture of the debate.

even when the lady called him out and said Ron Paul did the best, he would not admit to it... he said we report you decide... the snake did everything he could to keep from saying that Ron Paul did the best out of all the candidates...
not sure how the election will go, but not even Fox will give Ron Paul an even break, must less help him out any...

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

That's like saying Well, the Ravens didn't win against the Texans...they just had more points on the board.


It's digusting.

I've started tuning in to Fox News. The mix of attractive women, lies, and anger is very entertaining.

I know you all love some Ron Paul 2012! up in here, but come on. It is pretty well established that RP zealots descend on any social networking platform like locusts and blight the usefulness of bar graphs and percentage numbers drawn from the platform. That is beside the fact that the core of the republican party grew up before computers were smaller than a room and thinks twitter is "that newfangled contraption my grandkids waste their life on."

It doesn't matter. If you don't like the results of a poll DON'T PUT IT IN YOUR NEWSCAST. I mean, yea, that's biased news, but for the love of you make your entire station look stupid when you put graphs on the screen and then, quite obviously, leave important parts off.

Perhaps, but what's the freaking point of them posting the graphs if they're just going to turn around and point out their insignificance?

I think it's funny how ignoring RP has seemed to only backfired on media sources like Fox and CBS. Yet they continue to blatanly do it without even trying to cover it up.

By this point I'd say its ratings and internet links. News-enteratainment needs a narrative, RP's part in it is the ignored voice in the wilderness. How can he authentically speak truth to power if he is given an equal platform after all?

They believe, and they're probably right, that only a certain subset of hte population notices...the subset already supportive of Paul. So continually ignoring him, even when they get caught, still keeps a bunch of potential RP supporters in the dark...which is what they want.
