OUTRAGE! Big Media "gatekeepers" Spin yet another poll

Read it and scream:

In a post dated Oct.. 11th 7:21PM ET, Allen Wastler (Managing Editor, CNBC.com) tried to spin the poll shenanigans...

An Open Letter to the Ron Paul Faithful

"...I haven't seen him [Ron Paul] pull those kind of numbers in any "legit" poll. Our poll was either hacked or the target of a campaign. So we took the poll down."

"But you also ruined the purpose of the poll. It was no longer an honest "show of hands" -- it suddenly was a platform for beating the Ron Paul drum. That certainly wasn't our intention and certainly doesn't serve our readers ..."

I guess they don't consider anything that doesn't support their self-annoited frontrunners "legit" - even ones conducted OFF-LINE by county Republican parties - where Ron Paul has dominated.
See: http://www.ronpaul2008.com/straw-poll-results/

I urge you to read between the lines of these shallow platitudes.

1: They didn't like the results they were getting.

2: They were worried that Ron Paul might gain some positive traction from the results.

3: They tried to sweep the results under the rug to serve their elitist masters.

4: They've been swamped with responses from outraged (and hopefully now FORMER) viewers, and are puckering up to our "cheeks" to try to stop the avalanche already in progress.

Folks, this is just typical of Big Media. They want it all their way. They are owned (literally) lock, stock and barrel by the elite few that run this country, and they will do anything to retain their power. They recognize that Ron Paul is a threat to their continued gravy train. And they'll do anything to stop him. Taking down favorable polls is just one of the first steps...

Americans: You need to recognize your true emeny! It isn't the taliban, al-qaeda, the communist chinese, or anything the Big Media tells you to fear... The TRUE ENEMY is the elitist-run BIG MEDIA themselves! The major media (run by less than a dozen companies) have been manipulating you with the aid of, and to the benefit of their elitist masters.

If you don't recognize how serious this is, you need a big wake-up call. Before you dismiss my OUTRAGE here as "extreme" - consider for a few minutes what the Big "MainStream Media" and their elite masters (such as the CFR) are doing to you, and the country you claim to cherish.

If, like many of us, you've taken an oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States (from enemies BOTH foreign AND DOMESTIC), then you need to re-focus TODAY on your true enemies: The elitists and their propaganda wing... The "MainStream Media."

If you agree with me, then express YOUR outrage to these would-be "gatekeepers" - starting with Mr. Wastler at: politicalcapital@cnbc.com - and continue the fight onward from there...

If you still don't agree with me, don't bother commenting on this to say how it's just a misunderstanding... And I really shouldn't be so reactionary... And I really should calm down... Don't bother doing anything at all. To paraphrase Samual Adams: "We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

To all other true patriots: Don't relent... Keep the heat on the Media in EVERY way possible. Don't let them sweep Ron Paul under the rug. When (not IF) Ron Paul wins one or more of the January primary elections, big media will go on full-attack mode to ruin Ron Paul. (Don't pretend otherwise - it is THEIR necks that will go to the chopping block if he is elected, and they know it.)

Show CNBC what our "blowback" is... Donate some extra $$$ to Ron Paul TODAY, and show Big Media what a jump in donations Ron Paul gets when they attack him.

Don't forget to join and participate in your local Ron Paul Meetup group. Don't be discouraged by anything your would-be masters on TV tell you - keep getting the truth out about Ron Paul. He SHOULD WIN, and he CAN WIN with our help. DO IT TODAY. For the future of you, your family and loved ones.

UPDATE: Soon after this was posted, CNBC's John Harwood slinks back with another half-hearted excuse:

"I agree with the complaints. I do not believe our poll was "hacked." Nor do I agree with my colleagues' decision to take it down, though I know they were acting in good faith.:

But Mr. Harwood also doesn't miss the chance to pull a "George Stephanopoulos" manuver:
"To be clear: I believe that Ron Paul's chances of winning the presidency are no greater than my own, which is to say zero."

Do they have inside information as to why Ron Paul can't win the election? Like for instance, the elections are going to be rigged?

Turn up the heat... Add Mr. Harwood to your email list and let him know what YOU think of his "prediction."

And most of all... DON'T let them discourage you! The fact that they're backpedaling as fast as they are shows that they're running scared. In fact, the KNOW Ron Paul has a very good chance of winning... That's EXACTLY WHY they are going out of their way to convince people otherwise.

(Be smart - read in between the lines - don't let the MSM make decisions for you, or your neighbors.)
