Anyone who has read a single word I’ve written about Ron Paul will know, without a shred of doubt, I am not a fan of Ron Paul. At all. That being said, WOW! Fox REALLY doesn’t like him! It’s almost a pathological hatred.
I already knew Fox was not enamored of Ron Paul but tonight clinches it beyond any doubt. With over 90% of the votes in from the Iowa caucus, Ron Paul trails both Romney and Santorum (tied at 25%) with a very respectable 21%. This is close enough that any objective read of the results would be that it is a competitive three way race.
But we are talking about Fox. Ron Paul just gave a short speech urging his followers to keep fighting on to New Hampshire. MSNBC showed it. CNN showed it. Fox? They had an empty podium on screen while they waited for Newt Gingrich to come out. Newt came in a distant fourth with only 13% of the vote but, for some bizarre reason, he was more important than Dr. Paul.
I’m actually defending Ron Paul and agreeing with his supporters that Fox News is treating him like dirt under their fingernails. For that reason alone, I will hate Fox until the day I die.
I’m going to cry myself to sleep now.
