The media has had a long history of purposely misinterpreting what a person says.
Chop a little footage here, interpret a sentence on behalf of the politician there.
The problem with the lady up above here on the video - in fact both of them, know exactly their trade and what they are doing. They are of course the very ones manipulating the public. Not Rand. You can provide evidence of this because if they were as intelligent and as informed as they say they are they would have watched all the original footage and clearly understood what Rand had said in the past and recently, matched it up and realised that he hasn't changed his opinion.
Yes as a politician you have to be incredibly careful what you say unless you want it to be front page news. It's nothing really to Rand though, he's pretty smart - this is just batting practice for him and it gets him exposure.
