New Hampshire GOP Dumps FOX Due to Bias
The New Hampshire Republican Party has disassociated itself from the FOX News New Hampshire candidate forum to be broadcast tonight in protest of their refusal to let candidates Duncan Hunter and Ron Paul participate in the event. Paul has placed as high as third in New Hampshire polling behind favorites John McCain and Mitt Romney.
By excluding candidates that it views with disfavor, it seems FOX is attempting to shape the news, not just report it. This is part of a disturbing emerging pattern with FOX. During the New Years eve rioting in France, a Saudi named Al-waleed bin Talal, (a friend of News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch who controls an influential number of voting shares in the company) announced that he had gotten FOX to alter its coverage of the riots from "Muslim youths" to a spin that focused on social and class inequity.
Without Paul and Hunter, that debate is going to be four CFR corporate sock-puppets and one wanna-be Christian socialist. There will not be a real conservative at the table.
