For consideration


  1. Conservatives censored (or subjected to hostile interviews) by Fox News include Newt Gingrich (after Fox News decided to back Mitt Romney), Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, Tom Pauken, Rev. Tom Euteneuer, Michael Steele, J.D. Hayworth, Steve Lonegan and Tom Coburn; Sharron Angle was rarely on Fox News, far less than John McCain was, even though Angle's race was far more important than McCain's.
