Smear Job



If you would like to contact Joel Stein: thejoelstein@yahoo.com or jstein@latimescolumnists.com

If you would like to contact Tucker Carlson: tucker@msnbc.com

I have to say though, keep it civil. Don't give them any ammo to use against us.

Does anybody in the media have a mind of their own? Tucker Carlson had the same introduction about Ron Paul and it's getting real old. First you start with "he's last in the polls, but he has a growing internet support."

They act like the support on the internet isn't something tangible. It's people on the internet you idiots. Damn smear merchants.

This is utterly disgusting. I will be writing both of them a well deserved letter.

All Ron Paul supporters should be taking this personal.
This is a slam to all of us.
I for one am not a fan of slander, and this is what it is.

All of you out there should be writing these two, and their bosses for allowing such rudeness and personal attacks to be made on American voters.

I sent the following email:

Mr. Carlson,

I thought you were a "friend" in the media we could count on. After watching your msnbc interview with Joel Stein I guess I'm mistaken.

You had a great opportunity to clarify why Mr. Stein decided to trivialize all Ron Paul supporters as "nerds" in his Time hit piece when he obviously has a much more diverse following than just nerdy high school and college kids.

Several times Stein used the word "nerd" and "crazy" during your interview, needless to say I was a little disappointed. I would have loved to see you interview him and ask him some real questions regarding his article rather than play stupid like you don't know who Ron Paul's supporters are or why we are interested in him. You're a smarter reporter than that.

Being a Ron Paul supporter myself has given me the opportunity to meet many other Ron Paul supporters. One thing I'm amazed by from attending some of Ron Paul's rallies and other supporter planned events are the shear diversity of people that show up. There are libertarians, classical conservatives, and liberals. There are Christians, Muslims, and atheists. There are young and old. There are families and singles. Real reporting would be examining how diverse Ron Paul's following is or at least questioning Stein about his determination that we are merely a bunch of nerdy high schoolers.

Respectfully,

Thanks for posting this I just got done Emailing them both and telling Tucker he should work for Fox.Rob is right it is preposterous to believe that the internet does not represent public opinion , in the 2003 census it says 67% of Americans have internet access @ home.
