Faux News

In an ongoing effort to defame and besmirch Ron Paul, FauxNews is chasing an old story about Paul being racist. Of course this attack has to happen on Martin Luther King day when folks are most likely to pay attention to it.

The background to this is that Dr. Paul used to have a newsletter published in his name after retiring from Congress the first time, written by ghostwriters. Unfortunately, one of those newsletters included an article with disparaging remarks about MLK jr. These remarks have been claimed to be written by Paul, but a political aid of his, Lew Rockwell, has said on multiple occasions that he wrote them without Paul's permission.

Facts? We don't need no stinkin facts. We got emotion on our side.

However, Paul has had some folks come out on his side, supporting his position that he is not a racist, including the Austin Texas NAACP president, Nelson Linder. He says that Paul is being attacked because he's a threat to the establishment.

Honestly, the best way to show how biased FauxNews is against Ron Paul is to use their own graphic. Ron Paul finished 2nd in the Nevada primary, but yet, the three pictures they have on their screen? Romney (the winner), McCain, and Huckabee. WTF? Don't believe me? See for yourself:So much for "you decide"
