Fox vs. Paul?

Ron Paul supporters are up in arms about a Fox News decision to cut their candidate from a Republican candidate round-table this Sunday. And certainly, in light of the results of the Iowa caucus, where Paul came in 5th, with 10% support it looks like a difficult decision to justify. After all, Paul now boasts two delegates to the GOP convention. Meanwhile, Giuliani, who was invited, polled at only 4% and can claim no delegates.

There seems little doubt that Fox is uncomfortable with Ron Paul's stance on the war. This coupled with the network's well documented pro-Giuliani bias doubtless led to a decision that smacks of ideological propaganda moreso than journalism.
