Following up on my latest column on whether The Post is lax in its coverage of Rep. Ron Paul’s run for the GOP presidential nomination, here are links to Post stories and blog posts in the past six months These are the stories that are primarily about Paul or that mention him several times. Because of deficiencies in The Post Web site’s search mechanism, we cannot guarantee we have all of the citations. We also searched in Nexis.com, but that does not capture all Post blog stories.
