so people asking her questions she doesnt want to answer is scary...?
i dont 'worship' ron paul, i dont even live in America. But those people on that video looked like quite a diverse bunch and were pretty civil and not at all threatening in my opinion.
People acting that way while asking questions is a little scary.
BH was trying to help. What it seems Ron Paul supporters do not get is that passion alone cannot get him elected. You replace support with passion.
Instead of nicely trying to win BH over and gain ANOTHER VOTER for Ron Paul, you got upset and railed against her opinion.
I guess you have to decide what you guys really want at some point.
"We're very very objective."
"There's probably no one as far as I am"
Woman: "You're worried about Ron Paul winning?"
Dana Bash: "I never said that..."
"Skeletor horse faced idiot. Ron Paul the only candidate."
We need this to happen wherever the major networks show up. Be polite but pushy.

what a bizarre point to raise... why should BH be trying to help? she has just lost the journalistic high ground by (if what you say is true) attempting to help, if she is practising (and I quote) "objective journalism" then why would she be trying to help, he job as an "objective journalist" is to report the facts of the situation not give her OPINION on a situation so I cant understand why everyone is so cross at supporters of a particular presidential candidate for pointing out a blatant abuse of position in utilising the mass media machine to skew fact to opinion.
ps. you'll have to forgive my abuse of quotation marks but I find it extremely hard to believe a reporter representing a privately owned media entity has the sole objective of bringing the truth to the masses (not much profit in that) but thats just my opinion

Dana Bash is a typical CNN 'reporter'. I watched Cenk Uygur take Wolf Blitzer apart yesterday. It was pretty good. They're not there to report the news anymore. Those days are LONG gone! Of course Dana is afraid. She's not sitting behind a safe desk, she's out in the middle of the public. It can be scary for someone who's not used to that.
