Politico’s chief columnist, Roger Simon, on Monday accused the media of under-reporting Congressman Ron Paul’s significant achievement in the Ames Straw Poll.

“I admit I do not fully understand Ron Paul and his beliefs,” Simon said. “But I do understand when a guy gets shafted, and Ron Paul just got shafted.”

  1. no mention of Dr. Paul during the national or local news.
    If I didn’t have internet I wouldn’t even know that he was a candidate.
    Absolutely pathetic.
    Ron Paul 2012.

    I’ll have yard signs on the corner of my garage(under the surveillance cameras).

  2. “But the media has almost exclusively focused on Bachmann”

    Their focusing on Bachmann because they know she can’t win and it draws attention away from Paul. Mean while the Perry corporate machine gets underway.
