Paul: Fox News Running ‘Scared’

This is from over the weekend, but deserves some attention nonetheless, since it’s a spat that’s clearly not over.

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul said Saturday that Fox News, which has excluded him from an upcoming presidential debate, is "scared" of him.

According to The Boston Globe, Mr. Paul told a crowd at a New Hampshire diner: "They are scared of me and don’t want my message to get out, but it will. They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative."

He added: "They will not win this skirmish."

Fox News has not so far explained its decision to exclude the libertarian, antiwar Mr. Paul from the debate this Sunday. Most recent polls of New Hampshire Republicans show him leading Fred Thompson, who has been invited to participate in the debate.
