CNN Puts Media Hit on Ron Paul

The CNN website is running a story on Ron Paul highlighting a series of newsletters authored under his name in the 90's that include prejudiced and insulting statements about blacks and gays. Bloggers and their readers have of course known about them for quite some time. This story is far from new, its been out there for quite a while. This clearly represents the MSM deciding that its time for Ron Paul to make his exit and they look to speed him on his way with a racist character assassination job. However, it will have little effect on Ron Paul's campaign. His die hard supporters won't be swayed and in fact may be in complete agreement with the sentiments in the newsletters and since he is already such a fringe figure, there's not much there.
