Time for some important Orwellian news. When the Republicans held their televised candidate debates, CNN posted live comments from viewers as they came in, and ran a live poll of who viewers perceived as the winner.
Well, unsurprisingly, because most people aren’t in fact stupid, they’re just led to believe they have no power to evoke change, Ron Paul trounced his competitors. How did CNN react? Well, they certainly weren’t going to declare Ron Paul the winner. Instead, they set out to make sure no one would ever see those viewer results.
See for yourself. This link should take you to the viewer results page:
But instead, you get redirected to the results of the Democratic debate. (Doh!)
Don’t worry. The results were preserved by Internet “radicals” and posted on pages that no one ever visits. You can learn more about this blatant and glaringly anti-democratic censorship by CNN through these links:

And here are the viewer opinions that got sucked out of consensus reality: http://www.drawball.com/cnn-removed-this.html
It is almost shocking to read the true results. With such overwhelming support from the people, it is hard to see how Ron Paul could be seen as anything but the frontrunner. (Ouch. What’s that sharp pain inside my skull?) Oh, sorry. GhoulyAnnie is going to win. No doubt. He’s so strong. (Ah… That’s better.)
