Reports are coming out that Fox News allegedly tried misrepresent Ron Paul’s 2011 CPAC straw poll win by broadcasting footage from a previous event.
During the previous CPAC straw poll, Mitt Romney supporters booed en masse. However in the 2011 CPAC straw poll, this didn’t actually happen.
Congressman Paul defeated Romney for a second consecutive year at the annual CPAC conference.
But before Bill Hemmer, Fox News anchor, introduced a segment on the win, Fox played a clip of the 2010 announcement of the poll results, not the 2011 poll results.
In a different clip of the victory announcement, Paul was cheered and applauded.
