Smearing Paul

This dialogue between John Gbson and Michelle Malkin actually takes it as a premise that Ron Paul stated that Bush knew about 9/11 in advance. Here's Gibson:

According to a recent Rasmussen Report poll, 35 percent of Democrats think President Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks beforehand. The so-called 9/11 Truth Movement has already infected people like Rosie O'Donnell and one in three Democrats, and many other people, Americans evidently, including Congressman Ron Paul.

How on earth did Gibson get that from the debate on his own cable channel? Here is Malkin:

I'm glad that this moment provided great TV for FOX News it was a very instructive exchange but Ron Paul really has no business being on stage as a legitimate representative of Republicans, because the 9/11 truth virus is something that infects only a very small proportion of people that would identify themselves as conservative or Republican. And as you say, John, this is far more prevalent, this strain of 9/11 truth virus, on the left, and in much of the mainstream of the Democratic Party as that Rasmussen poll showed.

Gibson and Malkin owe Paul an apology. They are knowingly smearing under the guise of journalism.
