A recent Pew Research Center study proved that there was in fact truth to assertions made by Ron Paul’s supporters that he was being “blacked out” by the media. That study compiled a list of 52 mainstream news sources and discovered that Paul received significantly less media coverage than all of the other candidates, including Tim Pawlenty, who dropped out of the race because of his campaign’s lack of progress. That blackout continues it seems, as the Republican Jewish Coalition’s GOP 2012 panel, set to take place on December 7, will not include Ron Paul.
“As Mike Allen previewed in Playbook, the event will allow the seven candidates taking part — Ron Paul is not attending — 35 minutes each to speak,” writes Maggie Haberman for Politico.
Currently, it’s unknown whether Paul was not invited or declined the invitation, but Adam Kredo of Washington Jewish Week said of Paul’s absence, “Note that Texas Rep. Ron Paul, no good friend of Israel, will not be in the house.” That statement appeared on the Republican Jewish Coalition’s website.
Kredo’s assertion that Paul is “no good friend of Israel” is based on Paul’s philosophy that the United States should be less involved in Israel’s affairs.
