"So instead of commenting on the lifeless ineptitude of the supporters for the vaunted mainstream candidates, you decided to shut down the option of open participation for all. Why?"
Immediately after the most recent Republican debate CNBC ran an online poll for all the candidates. Ron Paul’s support so overwhelmed the others that CNBC quickly took down the poll. MSNBC was doing a similar poll and the Ron Paul landslide results were essentially the same.
The Internet was a buzz over the Main Stream Media bias against Ron Paul. As further evidence of that bias, Congressman Paul was asked the least number of questions and received the least air time minutes during the debate. A tabulation of these results can be found here. When Giuliani and Thompson get 18 questions and 14+ minutes and Ron Paul gets 5 questions and less than 6 minutes, then it can be concluded that the fix was in. Chris Matthews of MSNBC, Maria Bartiromo of CNBC, John Harwood of CNBC and Gerald Seib of the Wall Street Journal, as moderators and questioners, wear this open prejudice as much as the networks.
CNBC’s embarrassment for pulling the poll was so overwhelmingly that a network big cheese tried to ‘splain his actions in a piece titled “An Open Letter to the Ron Paul Faithful.” Click here to read it. You will find a vacuous justification of why curtailing free expression and short-circuiting participation in the political process is supposedly a good thing.
The following is a challenge letter sent to CNBC and its managing editor, Allen Wastler, at this email address - firstname.lastname@example.org - that was listed at the end of his letter.
