Bash did not say she was worried about Ron Paul

She says to John King, "I'm sure you talk to Republicans, who are worried about him, just like I am...".

The "just like I am" meant "just like I am talking to Republicans", not "just like I am worried about him".

In other words:

I'm sure you talk to Republicans, who are worried about him, just like I am talking to Republicans who are worried about him.

She might be biased against Ron Paul, but this particular statement is not evidence of that.

Using this against her is exactly the kind of semantic game-playing stunt some people use against Paul. Not to mention that it makes us look stupid and lose respect. To think that a reporter like Bash could possibly even mean to express her personal opinion like that in this kind of report reveals a shocking naivete.

As user RedDot said below:

The problem is that people want to hate her so much and want to catch her in something like this that they will betray their own better judgment and convince themselves this was intentional. This is just like how Glenn Beck and Hannity rile up anger with their listeners against Dr. Paul. Forgive me for not wanting to be like them.

Let's stay on the high road folks. That's Ron Paul's road, after all.
