“No content item selected”
Previously this link took you to the Fox News post-debate poll that had Ron Paul winning by a country mile.
If you’ve noticed a lack of Ron Paul in the mainstream media’s coverage of the 2012 presidential race, it might not be an accident. After he placed first in a Fox News poll, the outlet has removed the results from their website without explanation.
Fox had launched an online poll to gauge readers’ opinions on last night’s Republican show-down and asked their audience, “Which GOP presidential candidate do you think won the Fox News/Google debate?” At one point Paul placed in first, with 30 percent of the votes, but a reader of Infowars.com has pointed out that the poll has disappeared from the website, or has been shuffled to another page far from the front of Fox’s political coverage.
Logging onto the poll now produces an error in which the user is told “No content item selected.”
A screen shot of the poll produced by Infowars shows that Paul led with 24,8945 votes, with Mitt Romney trailing in second place with 22,656 votes, of 27 percent of the total. Rick Perry placed third with 15 percent of the votes, followed by Herman Cain with 9 percent.
Just thought I’d share.
In other news, Fox News gave Ron Paul and Gary Johnson the least amount of talk time during the debate and did not allocate talking time to poll standings.
Huntington news reports:
Fox News and Google purported to have a novel approach that would remedy the criticisms from past Republican Debates, where they have became a two-man Romney/Perry show. Although the other candidates stand on the stage, they do not receive the same attention as the mainstream media front runners. Rep. Ron Paul has been placing third in most polls, but he’s not receiving the proximate attention for the candidate down one from the Top Two. For that matter, other than Romney/Perry, follow up questions have not occurred.
Here is the only post-debate questioning Ron Paul received by the MSM, even though he is running in third place nationally with poll numbers in the double digits.
