Florida, Jan. 24 Republican debate transcript—MSNBC
[Brian] Williams: … Congressman Paul, a question for one of your colleagues on stage.
[Ron] Paul: My question is for Senator McCain.
This is an economic question that I want to ask. It has to do with the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.
I’d like to know what your opinion is of this and whether you would keep it in place, what their role would be if you — or you would get rid of this group? And if you kept the group, would you make sure we would see some sunlight and know what they’re doing and how they’re being involved in our markets?
McCain: Well, obviously, we like to see more sunshine. But…. [McCain evades the question]

Just 2 minutes ago I am watching the MSNBC coverage of the Nevada primary…. They then flash Obama, Hillary and Edwards graphic up showing 48%, 46% and 5% for Edwards.They then show the Republican numbers and only show two candidates numbers in their NEW GRAPHIC.
For the first time in all the primaries they decide to use a “top 2″ candidate graphic, because Ron Paul is a very close third place with 12%. In all other primaries they show the top three in their default graphic, and for the first time in all the coverage they decide its time to use just the top 2. They still show the top three in the Democrat race, event though Edwards is 36 POINTS behind the second place slot of Hillary, But the don’t show Ron Paul third when he is only 1% behind being in second place.
