Beck rankles Ron Paul campSubmitted by Wild-Blue on Thu, 02/11/2010 - 16:43
On Beck's show today he interviewed Debra Medina, a Libertarian Republican candidate for the governor's race in Texas. Early in the interview, Beck took intimidating jabs at Medina repeatedly asking her about her background in an attempt to throw her off balance. It was clear from the beginning that Beck had no intention in gathering information as he would not allow Medina to finish her sentences and clearly was not listening.
What became obvious later in the interview was the question that Beck was holding in the back of his mind which would score the necessary points the portly pundit craved. He then asked Medina if she was a "911 Truther". This was a clear attack on Medina's association with Ron Paul who has many followers who question the myriad of unsettling discrepancies regarding the events that took place on September 11, 2001. This was the perfect opportunity to relegate a viable grassroots candidate into the arena of "fringe".
