She is fairer than most

I am no huge fan of MSNBC, nor do I watch a lot of Rachel Maddow. However I have watched her interview Dr. Paul and she has been the only reporter that has shown him any respect. She listens to what he has to say and asks intelligent questions. She is also not afraid to call out Obama for his NDAA act. Even though she may be "on the left" and obviously has strong liberal opinions, she is a fair reporter. We are trying to spread liberty and freedom and I think that listening to the other sides comments and treating them with the respect that we are asking for is not a bad idea. You have to give respect to get respect. As far as I can tell she is the only one that has reported the Ron Paul campaign strategy correctly and has not just said he is out. I respect that. Even if I don't always agree with her.

So she can ask him

about the wonderful speech Rombama might allow him to make at Tampa? What crap. No one wants Rombama but the leftists running the media and the country....and the deluded boomer Neocons who think that voting for Israels lapdog is going to get them into heaven.

Huh?

Where does she get her OK delegate info? The convention was moved outside where Ron Paul supporters stayed and finished. Ron Paul got all the delegates! I watched on ustream live. We had a Pizza bomb! She even had part of the live video on her show when they were chanting "Ron Paul Ron Paul" Is the Republican party just going to ignore this "parking lot convention" ?

"Is the Republican party just going to ignore this "parking lot convention" My guess would be that, yes, the republican party will just ignore that entirely. And why not, they change their own rules and do whatever they want to do all the time. I honestly don't think that I will EVER vote for another republican again. I am so done with that entire foolish, asinine, bible-thumping, Israel kowtowing, lying sacks of excrement ever again.

Rachel Maddow is NOT our friend. She is a communist plain and simple.

The Entertainer

A report is a statement of facts, and you won't get reporting from Rachel Maddow. This episode is a case in point. Comments on this thread note half-truths, twists, and falehoods presented on her program, yet some people here are in a dither over her "news?"

She's not a reporter; she's an entertainer.

Think about it.

Why does Rachel Maddow have her job?

Because her boss thinks she will bring in advertising dollars.

Why will she bring in advertising dollars?

Because a certain segment of the population -- the big government leftists -- will like what she says.

And what do big government leftists like more than an Obama handout?

Reports of Republicans doing something dirty or stupid.

This was not a report about Ron Paul. It was a report about some Republicans punching each other and not being able to get their act together.

What would a Rachel Maddow interview of Ron Paul be about?

Republicans not getting along and not being able to get their act together ... oh, and Dr. Paul ... when will you officially drop out of the race and support Mitt Romney?

Not so

The enemy of our enemy is our friend! It does not matter what her motives or reasons are. Strategic alliances with liberals or leftists are good and important. She does Ron Paul more good than 98% of the main stream media. There are no such thing as good rightwingers and bad leftwingers. There are the right kind of leftists and the wrong kind of leftists. And there are the right kind of rightwingers and the wrong kind of rightwingers.

No

I have said this before here and I'll say it again. Many of us are not Republicans and many of us don't care what people think of the republican party. All that matters is Ron Paul gets a prime time spot debating Obama...

You misunderstood

I don't care about Republicans, either.

But Rachel Maddow's audience does.

Dr. Paul, at least talk to US

you don't have to do maddow, but how about a video recorded message to US at least! do you think your supporters are too unruly? really? are you really trying to win the presidency, or just gunna sit back and see what happens?

i'm afraid there are political maneuverings that we aren't privy to, and it kind of sucks because i thought Dr. Paul was going to just tell people the truth and see if we're ready for an honest and transparent leader in this country yet.

the only real answer i can find is that it's all about Rand. hopefully scores of liberty minded people get into politics so we don't have to be so careful about upsetting people as Ron Paul seems to be.

They'll All Have to Beg

One of the surest signs that this campaign is not last campaign has been the way Dr. Paul has been given more respect by the media. If you doubt me, look at old news coverage. The word, "sir" is used waaaay more frequently, this time, even when they're not being "nice."

We can safely assume that there will be more times ahead when they'll all be desperate to get an interview with him, and some, like Rachel, are having to be more respectful.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I think Congressman Paul took it personally when Rachel...

went after Rand on the totally legitimate issue of "property rights" and the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Rachel made mincemeat out of Rand's arguments and Congressman Paul hasn't been on THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW since, even though she would have given him a fair shake and asked real questions, not questions about the other candidates. Sorry, Congressman Paul, but this is taking "family loyalty" too far and seems petty, to boot.

????

Has anyone seen any journalist get the Better of Ron Paul Face to Face.Why the media Blackout and now smears.Nothing to fear from Rachel Maddow. ????

BAZZA MAC

He should go on!

She's been giving him a very fair shake - he should accept the invitation!

Edit: Reading previous posts it seems there's a history involved... and she has an agenda. I'll stay neutral on this since I'm not aware of all the history.

hey Rachel

we know you read the daily paul.so why do you stretch the truth?oh ya because you are a communist that works for the lying msm.to bad we did win delegates in Oklahoma.maybe if you if you stop lying Dr.Paul would come on your show.

I like the cut of your Gib. Your response makes much more sense than this gibberish about giving Maddows a fair shake. We are way above letting these fools ask their foolish questions now that we are taking over state conventions right and left (Not too left).

This time don't give us Barabbus!

She Called OBAMA out on the NDAA

She Called OBAMA out on the NDAA. Yet when she says anything that remotely calls out Libertarian or Ron Paul ideals, you guys get your panties in a twist.

Then again after reading many of the post on this site you guys hate everyone... lol...

Never stop thinking for yourself.

"If you think we can't change the world, it just means you're not one of those that will"

Jacque Fresco

exactly.

imo she's covered the delegate strategy better than anyone on any side.

Ron Paul, Go on the Show!!!!

People talk about Debate Debate Debate!!! Debate Obama, Debate Romney...

Can anyone give me a reason Ron Paul should NOT go on her show?

And Rand Paul said he would have singed the Civil rights act, which is haresy to many of you I'm sure.

"If you think we can't change the world, it just means you're not one of those that will"

Jacque Fresco

To Be Fair...

I did first learn of Dr. Paul in a televised debate before the 2008 election. So, it's really up to him. His judgement is very sound about what he should and should not do.

Fed-Up

I agree

The problem is I think he's not getting the best advice some times. His last press release about him Not campaigning in the primaries was not necessary and all it did was give the media a way to spin it as, "he dropped out".

"If you think we can't change the world, it just means you're not one of those that will"

Be Wary of Any MSM Attention

Implicit in her story: 1.) Dr. Paul will never be elected POTUS 2.) No Paul delegates were won in Oklahoma 3.) GOP (opposition to Obama) is corrupt. Will she report on Dem corruption? 4.)MSM is just waiting to give Dr. Paul fair coverage...that there is no blackout.

It's just not worth it to have to put up with all of the above to get an iota of publicity for Dr. Paul who draws crowds by the thousands.

At the end she begs for him to come on...

You made your own bed by your past antics, Rachel, now you have to sleep in it. Stay away, Ron.

Good reporting for the wrong reason

She's doing the best reporting about the primary race, but its not from any journalistic sense of reporting the truth. She's just giddy about the possibility of Republican infighting and a rowdy National Convention.

Don't trust her

It may seem like she's in support of Ron Paul, but she's doing exactly what she's told to do. This is meant to make people on the opposite side think "Oh, we have this in the bag because the Republicans can't agree with each other." It's meant to continue the whole "left - right" paradigm that divides us as humans. And if you pay attention, she also spins the news. She states that we have 0 delegates from OK, but never reports that it was illegally conducted. She didn't report on the fact that the caucus was STILL going on in the parking lot.
