Paul to Stay in Race
In a video released Thursday night and displayed on the campaign website, Ron Paul revved up revolutionaries once again with the message of liberty, peace, and prosperity. As many were wondering whether he would step out, Paul showed that his dedication to the cause of liberty is more important to him then taking a more comfortable path.

Bad Reporting Strikes Again
It’s not a new experience for supporters of Ron Paul, but the media has once again greatly botched a story and caused quite a bit of confusion through misinformation. As reported earlier, ABC News made a blog entry stating Ron Paul was set to drop out on the 6th in a video. When this video showed the opposite, ABC News slowly, and partially retracted its story over a course of several hours. But the damage was done, and sites such as salon.com, antiwar.com, and hotair.com quicky put up articles stating he had withdrawn.
And as noted above, ABC didn’t actually fully retract its story, it just modified it to say that he was "moving on" from the race, which was equally inaccurate. And no less damaging in regards to other press outlets picking up on it, this time with Yahoo News and CNN who both reported that he was “hinting at” dropping out.
