Fox News Channel's selective use of viewer responses:
After the Republican debate in New Hampshire, FoxNews.com had a page devoted to viewer comments
on which candidate did well, or did poorly. There were positive reviews for Ron Paul, but here are all of the negative ones
. See if you can detect a pattern: (emp add, so it should be easy)
- "Ron Paul is a very poor excuse for a Republican and should run with the other idiots on the Democrat side." — Mr. & Mrs. Payton (Florence, OR)
- "Paul is a certified lunatic." — Rod (Garden Grove, CA)
- “Poor old Ron Paul has just lost what sanity he ever had. I think the people in white coats should take care of him.” — Mary
Ron Paul: "idiot", "lunatic", "insane". As for the other candidates, there were few negative comments on the webpage and they were mild in comparison: "sidestepped" [the issues], "vague", "plain disappointing".
Fox News Channel sure knows how to sling someone else's mud.
