Meet the Press this morning focused its discussion in large part on candidates’ fundraising reports. In typical fashion, the show failed to give any mention at all to the impressive $5 million raised by Ron Paul. I sent this letter in response:
Your discussion today about GOP fundraising results omitted the surprising $5 million raised by the Ron Paul campaign. Combined with the campaign’s reserves, Paul now has significantly more funding than McCain, whom you did cover.
Regardless of one’s political views, the success Paul has enjoyed mobilizing the peaceful, small government wing of the Republican party and bringing in anti-war supporters of all stripes is one of the more interesting stories to come out of the presidential race so far. You do your viewers a disservice in failing to mention it.
The feedback form is here if you’d like to write in as well.
