Video: CNN reporter Dana Bash gets "Snowballed" by Ron Paul supporters

Here's our video of CNN reporter Dana Bash receiving some choice words from supporters after the primary rally on January 10th in NH. Perhaps Ms. Bash should have taken notes from Sean Hannity before maligning the good doctor:

There is nothing wrong with Dana Bash...

that a little integrity wouldn't cure.

Her ex-husband is the Chief

Her ex-husband is the Chief of Staff of Leon Panetta over at the War Department. If that is not a conflict of interest, I am unsure what would be construed as one.

Ah ha

That explains a lot

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Dana Bash opined that she is

Dana Bash opined that she is "also worried about {RP} getting elected." An objective journalist cannot worry about these things on air in a segment about RP, Dana.

Keep it classy guys. I think you gave her the message without attacking her personally.

Yep, just as everyone suspected...

Dana's an Israeli-firster and nothing about America means a hill of beans except providing more cannon fodder for Israel.

"Give a man a gun, and he could rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he could rob the world."

That was interesting

None of the supporters were really mean. They were curious why CNN is biased. She deserves what she got.

Just FYI

I agree her coverage has been pretty biased, BUT ... I don't agree she said, "I'm worried about Dr. Paul being elected."

If you listen closely, she is actually saying: "I have been talking to republicans who are worried, as I'm sure you have been talking to republicans who are worried." She just jumbled the words a bit and it didn't sound right.

I think that she has gotten the point (as much as she can), I don't think continuing to barrage her is a good idea. Lets hold off and see how she does for now?

Ok, my question is

What the Hell are they worried about? They have claimed for years that Ron Paul is no threat, is inconsequential, etc... I hope to HELL they are worried!!! Socialism and Fascism will NOT BE TOLERATED in my country.

Dana basher

You've decided that if you can't beat us-join us?? Sure sounds like you've just asked us to let up on you.


You might want to give the clip another listen.

She clearly says "just like I am" at around the 24 second mark.


I agree, tone it down, but she said what she said!!!

"I'm sure you talk to republicans who are worried as well, just like I am, that Ron Paul will continue on, long into the ah, the spring and summer..."

But I totally agree, people need to tone it down! I don't know if you know, but Revolution Pac has made a formal request that she be removed! Plus, The Judge had Jack Hunter on Freedom Watch today talking about this very thing!

Silence Dogood IX

What is there to tone down???

All they did was ask her some questions. I mean, that's all she was doing with Ron, right? Just asking some questions. I don't see anything wrong with that. There is an old saying "If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen."


Sometimes I have a knee-jerk reaction to things and then I regret what I say!!! That's all I really meant by that! But by all means, keep the pressure on! Make them fear us!

Bash victim of bashing...

but could she just be a prisoner of her own paradigm?

At a trial the defense lawyer would make a plea of insanity on her behalf. "She just didn't know any better."

Sorry guys, but I can't offer

Sorry guys, but I can't offer much praise for this. This is the kind of stuff that gets us labeled as rabid supporters. We should be practicing diplomacy in dealing with journalists, not attacking them. Take the high road and use a more balanced approach. Don't start the discussion with "are you concerned with the federal reserve ripping off our children?"

It's kind of like when a reporter asks Ron Paul "are you concerned that your polls numbers are dropping?"... it immediately starts the discussion with a negative tone.

Be friendly. Be honest, but diplomatic. Ask yourself, "what would Ron Paul do?"


been telling them off lately.

Your right, Ron and Jesse

Your right, Ron and Jesse just told Dana off recently and ended the ridiculous interview. It's frustrating and I think she is getting what she deserves.

I understand your point but

I understand your point but you have to remember these people like us all are outraged that this has been going on for so long and are even more outraged that people like Dana Bash have been purposely deceiving the public to keep the scam on us going. That first lady took it a little too far but the rest were being pretty fair IMO. If she can't take the heat then maybe she needs to find different employment. When you deal with giving the public information don't be surprised that they act like this when they find out you are purposely deceiving them. Ron is so humble about this because he's known this has been going on for a long time. I'm sure Ron was outraged at first as well. So outraged he ran for congress.

each of the people

who confronted her were polite and respectful. I am sure if it were me it would not have been so nice or so respectful.


I Agree

But it takes a great deal of self control... just like RP.

Darn, I was looking forward to seeing 4-5 snowball hitting her..

...in the face from like 10 directions.

New title :=)


You and me both, brother! :)


She got the message, all right, and I think we can turn down

the heat on her. I've seen the independent video and a recent CNN feature linked here, and I can hear fear in her voice. She uses "whomever" as a grammatical subject (a sign of corrective over-compensation), appears relieved when she is permitted by the anchor to make a conciliatory comment about Dr. Paul, and is genuinely concerned about being perceived as "biased." I can only imagine the influence of potential sponsor boycotts and other "heated" emails sent to CNN administration. Whatever we do, however we act, it is unwise for the supporters to make covering Dr. Paul "hardship duty" for the journalists on the scene.

good psychological break down,

precisely why I don't think she could help herself when she blurted involuntarily that Freudian slip, "...worried as I am."

the most hilarious part is her trying to remind herself of something by rationalizing something she's not: "I'm an objective journalist!"


ya, as if saying it out loud will magically maker her into one.

well, one thing. the message got to her loud and clear. it was relentless! I think she was more "Hannitized" than "snowballed." IMO

Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Snowball?... more like an avalanche.

She seemed nervous... that's what happens when you mess with the good doctor.


"The greatest mystery of all is truth." - Me, 2009

she reminds me of Ann Coulter

...without the charm.

Charm? Damn...I had another

Charm? Damn...I had another word for it


“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul


Now thats insult!

it's like:

"He's like Hitler ... without the compassion"

When I read

that she was being snowballed by Ron Paul supporters in the title, I was hoping that she was getting hit with snow balls. lol.

Best line.

"You don't speak like that about MY President on CNN. Shame on you!"
