New Hampshire GOP Withdraws Under Protest

Today the Fox News Channel held a Republican Presidential Forum just two days before the State’s primary election. To say the least it was not “fair and balanced”. Two of the republican candidates had been excluded from the forum, Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter. After protests from both candidates campaign the New Hampshire Republican Party has withdrawn its sponsorship of the event. "The New Hampshire Republican Party did the right thing by pulling its sponsorship for Fox's candidate forum," said Ron Paul 2008 spokesman Jesse Benton. "'Fox News' decision to exclude Congressman Paul is unfair, but it won't stop Dr. Paul's message of freedom, peace and prosperity from resonating with the people of New Hampshire.", reports Reuters.com.

New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen said today "The first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary serves a national purpose by giving all candidates an equal opportunity on a level playing field. Only in New Hampshire do lesser known, lesser funded underdogs have a fighting chance to establish themselves as national figures. Consistent with that tradition, we believe all recognized major candidates should have an equal opportunity to participate in pre-primary debates and forums.
"This principle applies to tonight's debates on ABC as well as Sunday's planned forum on FOX. The New Hampshire Republican Party believes Congressmen Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter should be included in the FOX forum on Sunday evening. Our mutual efforts to resolve this difference have failed.

"While we understand that FOX News continues to move forward it is with regret, the New Hampshire Republican Party hereby withdraws as a partner in this forum."

While Bill O’Reilly tried to explain why these two candidates where excluded saying it is because of their ratings in the polls. Ron Paul was polling at under five percent in Iowa and came out with an overall finish of ten percent, and Bill O’Reilly still says he has no chance. We know two things now-
1. Fox News is not “Fair and Balanced” and they do not give everyone a fair chance.
2. The polls are not accurate and do not reflect anything close to the final results.
