CNN on Ron Paul's racism

As I had hoped, the fact that the story about Ron Paul's racism was finally written about in a mainstream media outlet - the New Republic - means that other mainstream media will pick up the story. Today's CNN Politics report includes an article about Ron Paul 90s newsletters rant against blacks, gays. Let's see now what other major media will pick up the story.


  1. If only we could get a Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich/Alex Jones ticket. Then we could call the mother ship and get them all beamed up at once.

    Why is Alex Jones on the ticket? Ah, er...balance. Hey it makes as much sense as the prisonplanet theory that supremacists and separatists blew up those buildings on 9/11.

  2. And after being hounded on this for a couple of days he chooses a soft ball interview on CNN and there's even more farcical kiss-ups on Fox (of course).

    Paul said he didn't recognise "some" of the things that the media have quoted? So he does remember some of them, huh?

    The leaflets are 8 pages long, and carry his own name. This isn't a major daily newspaper, Ronny Boy. What's the chances that, even if he hadn't written them, he had read and approved of them? Fairly high, I think.

  3. I wrote a post on my blog entitled "Is Ron Paul a Bigot?" You'll undoubtedly disagree with it, but please feel free to check it out if you have the time.
