On November 12, 2011, the CBS News Network gave Ron Paul less than two minutes to speak at the Spartanburg, SC GOP/Foreign Policy debate. This is an obvious attempt to marginalize the message of Ron Paul and points to CBS's incompetence as a reliable news network for three reasons.

1. Ron Paul has received more military campaign contributions than any other Republican candidate, therefore, it is only logical that he receives a substantial amount of air time during a debate on foreign policy. This not only shows an outrageous bias against Ron Paul but outright disregard for the opinion of the brave individuals serving in our military.

2. Ron Paul has been consistently ranked in the top or won the majority of straw polls this primary cycle. This shows a lack of journalistic competency by CBS considering it is only proper to give coverage to a candidate who is clearly showing mainstream electability.

3. Ron Paul was one of the few veterans on stage for this foreign policy debate during Veteran's Day weekend. It is disgraceful that he received so little air time given the specific circumstances. Sign the petition. Help defeat the media blackout.

We therefore demand a public apology to Ron Paul for the irrefutable disrespect and unfairness displayed by CBS.

Sincerely,
