I agree, BUT

1st I have to say that this is one of Dr Paul's BEST interviews. His foreign policy answers were some of his best yet. Blunt, clear, and to the point.

I even LOVED all of his answers to her questions about the newsletters. I just hope you all get it through your heads that these questions are NOT lowball or illegitimate. They NEED to be answered, BY Dr Paul, for the WHOLE public to hear. Otherwise, the MEDIA gets to answer it FOR him.

While this was his BEST handling of the issue thus for IMO, he's still leaving out something I think is CRUCIAL. Just AGREE with the reporter that these statements in question are INDEED HURTFUL and INFLAMMATORY and TOTALLY out of bounds and FAR off from his own views. The dismissive approach won't work. People just want to know he's simply not blowing off such painful and stupid comments, but that he hates them JUST AS MUCH.

I just do not understand you..

WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT HIM TO SAY.. he has even appoltgised that he was not a better publisher.. what do you want him to do have a Jimmy Swaggart Moment and cry on TV.. begging for forgiveness. your insane..

you seem to understand very

you seem to understand very little about PR and basic communication. What's not said is just as important as what is said. tone of voice, body language, EVERYTHING is important. YOU understand Dr Paul, I understand Dr Paul, but frankly, if this was my first time seeing him, and THIS is what he was discussing, my natural human instinct would be screaming, "Dude got busted and now he's just pissed..."

Would you give Mitt or Newt the deference you're giving Dr Paul without the benefit of the context you have? People just wanna hear, "Yes, I read them maybe 10 years after they were written and found them quite appalling because they were written in my name and not for a second do they represent my views one bit. I UNDERSTAND the concern they've raised because they CONCERNED ME so greatly all those years ago. I just hope folks will look at my 30 year RECORD on these issues and how tirelessly I've fought for the civil liberties of EVERY individual..." It's called being SYMPATHETIC. It's what his advisors should've advised and this debacle would be over with.

People just wanna know you GET where they're coming from and to not have their concerns so easily dismissed.

Wow...this is amazing!

I hadn't watched the intitial released interview though I had seen what MSNBC had picked up on and how he walked out of the interview.

IF this can be shown, it will really show the media bias....more than the blackout, more than the brushoffs...this shows how the media twists and actually fabricates news.

Shame on CNN and shame any other news outlet that reports that Dr Paul walked out.

So let's turn this around and use it for MORE support!

What was Ron's very last sentence?

I couldn't make it out.

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783
"I have one word for you...predator drones. Oh, you think I'm kidding?" Obombya

"That's how the system works"

"That's how the system works"

I thought it was...

"Drink your Ovaltine!"

Showing my age?

*I understand how the system works

*I understand how the system works

Why does she look so hateful?

Dr Paul did what he should have done. A disrespectful "reporter" pushing it too far. Dr Paul showed the proper amount of patience and restraint but, enough is enough. Looking very presidential.

I'm with you.

I think he showed restraint and was unfailingly polite to her, and I think she knew it. Indeed, she practically apologizes to him at the end, and clearly knows she has gone too far.

His instinct was right on to take off the microphone and signal that the interview was over.

Thank you for posting this.

Breitbart TV HIT Pieces!!!

Right NOW, there are (3) stories on Breitbart TV about Ron Paul, they are ALL HIT Pieces IMO! Time 4 COMMENTS, COMMENTS, COMMENTS & MORE COMMENTS!!!







you are a representative of Dr. Paul here. Please refrain from ad hominem. If all you can do is call names then for Dr. Paul's sake just be quiet. :)

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

OK. Good point.

OK. Good point.

Truth Is...

Falsehoods are loosing. Liberty Prevails!!

I Did A Piece Yesterday on This CNN "Hit Lady" Gloria Borger.

This woman is a disgusting piece of filth..Yea, just doing your job.

Why don't you go ask Barack Obama some pointed questions about his real birth certificate. Why don't you go out and bug trump about his bankruptcies or Gingrich's affairs.

Go bug these Son of a b*tch and leave us alone with this crap...

"This woman is a disgusting piece of filth..."


Awesome suit and tie

That's the best looking suit and tie combo RP has ever worn; looks great! Very presidential.

Clothes make the man, RP - don't forget it!


Will she do anything for the money? I hope she is aware that she is standing on the WRONG SIDE OF THE HISTORY!



not a hit job

He stormed out like reported. Some of you guys need to grow up it was a poorly handled interview. Hist first poorly handled interview. Gingrich had nothing to do with it he's a nobody. He couldn't even get on thethe Virginia ballot and he lived there for a decade!


Only listened to the audio not the video. Apologies all around.

You're right this isn't a CNN hitpiece

This is just CNN's honest distortion of the facts for political purposes because of Dr. Paul's surge of strength in Iowa and the entire nation.

How can you NOT be a troll?

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Thomas Jefferson

It Was A Hit Job, But It Would Be Better Had He Kept His Cool

I think he did great until she brought up the allegation of having made a million dollars off the newsletters.

It's such a ridiculous charge that he couldn't even fathom it and it may have thrown him.

Wouldn't it have been great if, after he brought up the concept, Dr. Paul had asked her whether she knew what mark and reprisal means?

Then when she said "no" he could have explained Article 1, Section 8 and the difference between a declaration of war and a letter of mark and reprisal.

It would have been a great chance to let the country see what a constitutional scholar he is. Plus it would have taken up the rest of the time of the interview.

Sometimes I think Dr. Paul is so conversant in the constitution that he doesn't realize how little about it most of the citizenry understands.

Whenever he says "You don't go to war without a declaration" I always wish he'd add "from Congress." To him it's implied, but I'm sure many are thinking something along the lines of, "So if you're the president, just declare it!"

"Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard

Is that you Gloria???

You should be hustlin' burgers and fries.

Where did he walk off? Tell

Where did he walk off? Tell me at what point. She asked the last question. he answered and it was done, and then they had a casual conversation as it was wrapping up and he was leaving.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

the only time i've seen the Dr. walk out angry

was on that stupid Bruno movie.

Gloria Borger = Bruno

Gloria Borger and Sacha Baron Cohen operate on the same intellectual level. They are both frauds.

this is proof of media corporate Fascism

Media Fascist

I knew it from the start ... Now lets get retractions from all

The bubble heads and their web sites that fostered this lie ... This must tell you something about how much the Establishment fears this men ... to have to lie about their interview ... BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOTHING ELSE THEY CAN SAY.

Why can't the FCC do something about this?

I know, I know, someone probably slipped the commissioner a nice cash gift to look the other way.

This is serious, and serious charges need to be levied against CNN.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!
