John King Ignores Ron Paul, Gets Booed By Crowd at S.C. Debate

by at . Comments

John King did not have a good night Thursday.

At last night's CNN debate in Charleston, S.C., the network's moderator was absolutely eviscerated by Newt Gingrich after King brought up his ex-wife's recent interview in undoubtedly the event's most memorable exchange.

Not only that, he seemed to skip over Ron Paul - a doctor by trade - more than once, most notably during an exchange about the candidates abortion positions:

Following a back-and-forth between Republican presidential candidates Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, King changed the topic, only to be booed by the crowd.

Because he had completely ignored the fourth candidate on stage, Paul.

Paul laughed off the oversight, noting “John, once again, it’s a medical subject and I’m a doctor!” Paul, an obstetrician, went on to weigh in on the subject.

The Texas Congressman voiced concerns about federal funding of institutions providing abortions, saying such decisions should be made on a state-by-state basis.

South Carolina's crucial primary takes place tomorrow.

Ditto. The only way the GOP is getting my vote is for Ron Paul. I realize though many of them are suckling the government teat, including thousands in the military industrial complex or thousands of corporate farmers who get tens of billions in subsidies a year. They're never going to come over and will go down with the ship.

Good article! The only way in the world the GOP will get my vote is if Ron Paul tops the ticket. I am absolutely sickened at how the media and GOP have mistreated this wise and honorable statesman. He's running for all the right reasons and that appeals to the people but threatens the corrupt gravy train. They are pulling out all the stops to silence him, but its not working.

John King is an ignorant ass like the rest of the owned news networks, whose outright bias has been plainly shown to all over the primary election process. CNN is rectal garbage - plain and simple. We get better news from the Hollywood Gossip - now a true news reporter unlike CNN.

Local homicide detectives should be arresting everyone who commits homicide, including abortion doctors. Dr. Paul showed the country how much the Feds brainwash people into thinking that certain people should have the right to be violent against certain other paople ( babies). Rick, Mitt, and Newt sound like bickering children next to Dr. Paul's wisdom. Ron Paul would slaughter Hussein in a debate.

I have seen King be fair with Ron Paul in the past like after the Iowa caucuses; however he has a boss and that is who he has to please not the people. There has been a planned effort by almost all media to ignore Ron Paul. Why? Because they want Obama for four more years and they know Romney can't beat Obama and if by chance he did they have a mirror image of Obama in Romney. It will take a miracle for Ron Paul to win it all and stay in office long enough to accomplish his plans. The person who is capable of granting miracles is who we should speak to about this. In other words PRAY.

I think we need to look at Ron Paul as a movement as well as a candidate. I will vote for him even if I have to write him in the general election. I don't care if people say, "You'll be giving the election to Obama." I don't think it matters if it's Newt, Nitt, or Obama, nothing will change. I will write in Ron Paul in 2016 and ever after until someone comes along with true vision and desire to make things right in this country and willing to fight to take back our country from the military industrial complex, banks and big corporate influence
