Well there interview skills suck. A lot about fox sucks. I'm just not going to play the game "HURR DURR THE OTHER NETWORKS ARE BETTER" (caps lock for comedic value)

It's pretty even. They're all unfair and biased.


Only FOX has "Freedom Watch" though. Other than that, they pretty much suck universally across the board. This interview shows how much they suck. It's pathetic how they skate around the real issues that they could give Dr. Paul airtime to address. Instead, they promote crap like this.

I said it was posted today (19/8..scroll down a little posted 18:41)


I dont mind you keep the discussion here, just pointed out its already posted. You will see other older atrocities from Fox against Ron in the same tread.

Let's be honest here. There is no reason to share that it was posted within another thread about a different topic with a different title on the video.

The discussions are about two completely different things. Not to mention you can't expect me to skim through threads looking for already posted videos.


But thanks for the link. It might have some interesting videos to watch.

Ron Paul handles this interview like a boss.

Ron Paul or Bust.

That's one of the things I like about Ron Paul. He doesn't beat around the bush. He told her straight out it was a silly question and he wasn't going to waste his time discussing it.

He's very professional it seems. That's what I love. It's formal and respectful. Other interviewed people I've seen just don't have the same kind of respect.

Then again I'm biased here.

Yes, he is so super-focused.

It is becoming more and more easy to convince others that their vote for POTUS is silly compared to my man Dr. Ron Paul.

Wow, she was trying to insinuate that Ron Paul's supporters are all wackos! The media is really trying to tarnish his campaign any way they can. That was really a low blow and I think Ron Paul handled that ridiculous question appropriately.

It's amazing how the media wants to turn voters against voting for Ron Paul.

He's right on when he says any company who is facing deep financial problems will start selling off capital and reduce expenses to stay a float. The U.S. needs to face the music and start eliminating foreign military bases, bring our troops home and drastically cut our military spending. That was the first place Russia cut after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Anyone can claim to be a Ron Paul supporter and then do something stupid.


I could just as easily do something equally as incendiary and foolish and claim I was a Rick Perry supporter.

Ron Paul handled this in exactly the right way: “My first impression would be, why pay attention to it? Why give it credibility? There’s a lot of things going on like that in a lot of campaigns…This whole thing doesn’t invite me or incite me…”

Another topic but exactly the same conclusion on this video.
The Title on your video is altered, so no wonder they aint the same.
but
I agree you cant search through the entire forum before posting.
And your point about it being another topic seams more valid even to me


The reason i initially linked it is because there is so many new treads spawned on very similar topics. Personally i got a hard time keeping the big picture, when everything is ripped to pieces. Ron gets so many treads he deserve a subforum in the US 2012 forum.

Clips like this one useually make my blood boiling, if I didn’t know meditation I doubt cursing at the TV would be satisfactory. But this question is so lame that I cant even get angry about it, it's pathetic.

Pretty stupid move on the part of a Ron Paul supporter.

If people want Ron to win they cant do things like that because he has to answer for someone elses stupidity on national television.

Notice how the reporter brings up Rick Perry because the MSM loves him, then when Ron Paul lets him have it and explains exactly why Rick Perry will lose lots of supporters, it goes to "Oh well one of your supporters aired this ad asking if Rick Perry has had sex with any strippers".

The MSM never fails to suck at their job.

I bet reporters draw straws the morning of Ron Paul interviews because they know their questions will backfire and he'll only make himself look better everytime.

Not to turn this into a "Let's bash Rick Perry!" thread, but I wonder which mainstream media station will ask Rick Perry about a Bank of America employee saying "We will help you out"?
I'm sure somebody who's getting campaign assistance from big banks is in it to serve the people....

politico speak for i don't want to talk about it.

and i don't care if it was done in my name.

sounds like rangle and sharpton.

at least he had a chance to clear it up, eh? instead of running it as gospel like the crap the left spouts about palin.


totally valid question.

tough nooggies, he's in the spotlight now guys.

i hope there is no more stealth white wash like obama's campaign.

i saw this earlier today and was embarrassed for women the nation over because of this blonde twit. it seemed as if all she cared about was the mud slinging and rumor mill. poor Ron Paul is trying to talk about monetary policy and explain how it all works to her, and all she can care about is some idiot that posted an ad in the austin paper about rick perry's possible sexual deviancy.

what kind of journalist would even bring something that retarded up in an interview like this?

great job, fox! next time why don't they just get Snookie to interview him *rolls eyes* and just skip the community college associates degree brainless spokesmodel they call a journalist. good gravy.

no he doesn't. he doesn't and shouldn't have to answer for what ANY person takes it upon themselves to do. This kind of crap shouldn't even be a part of an an interview like this anyway. This has nothing to do with the issues concerning this country right now. period. this was crappy journalism. sensationalism, rumor milling. and turning what is SUPPOSED TO BE a "reputable" news program into an edition of The National Inquirer.

"if Ron Paul wants to win they cant do things like that" - and you find NOTHING wrong with a country that bases it decisions on who to elect to run the country on things like: some guy that supports another guy placed an ad in the paper looking for dirt on a third guy!?!

No way.

FYI: mud slinging has NEVER kept ANY politician from being elected anyway. when any other politician slings mud the media is all over them, they LIVE for that kind of crap. Ron Paul had no dirt to dig up, so they have to result to crap like this. I think it's funny that this is the best gossip they can drudge up on Dr. Paul and try and throw him on the spot in the news. Who cares what some guy posted in a newspaper. Love the way Dr. Paul made her look like an idiot when he said "I can't believe this is a real question for the national news."

Wait a sec, that was a valid question, and he answered it like it a pro.
That was FOX news asking a Republican an uncomfortable question, that's the way it should be.
Not like CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBS,... always asking Obama softball questions.
If you ask me, I think there is a Liberal plant behind this deal.

Well, they(fox and other media) read the internet and know they had to do an interview to quiet the storm, but the interview was a mockery. From the 4 minutes dedicated to some internet porn advertisement that someone used RP's name in, to the journalist talking down to him, and at the very end of his explanation to a question she pushed him to clarify that didn't even deserve a response, she then says to him "okay, I got it" in an arrogant and dismissing way and ended it that way. Yeah, they interviewed him, but that wasn't a decent interview unless you are trying to convey to an audience that the person does not deserve the time of day.

Faux News gives themselves a very wide margin of error when it comes to professionalism...

And their viewers don't mind...

EVERYBODY has skells in the closet, they will find his or make up stuff, lol!!

welcome to HR! lol!!

BTFW, is he dr. or congressman paul??

calling a sitting congressman dr. is pretty cultist and just plain weird. like that is more important and higher than what he actually is. gives a pseudo-level of aura for this career politico.

Kro....SHUT UP!

Again.... Your trolling only makes YOU look bad..... Stop.... Why you want everyone to hate you is beyond me. No one even gets mad at you like they would a proper troll.They just roll their eyes and laugh at the latest stupid crap you posted....You suck as a troll.... Try being yourself instead.

That said, give me a break.You know damn well that is a stupid question....I would be saying that regardless of who it was asked to.

Are you suggesting you thought it was a good question?

It would be a stupid question if it was asked to Ron Paul, Michelle Bachmann or anyone else....
