Responding to the electability questionSubmitted by djinwa on Sun, 07/17/2011 - 18:34
I am really bothered when reporters ask Dr Paul about his electability. It wouldd be great if he couldd grill them on their ethics such as the following:
As a professional journalist, you are to be unbiased. How do you determine which of us are unelectable?
If it is by the polls, will you ask the same electability question to every candidate who is behind me in the polls?
If you do not ask this of other candidates, then it appears you are trying to influence how people vote, and that is unprofessional. It is a form of rigging an election.
You should not promote your favorites and discredit those you disagree with. You make candidates unelectable by treating them so.
