First of all, I have to make it clear that I am not a Rand Paul supporter.
However, I feel that I have to speak out, in his defense, of how he is being portrayed in the media as of late. It is quite ridiculous that he his harsh on women reporters/journalists.
Here, Sen. Dr. Rand Paul is criticized for ‘shooting’ the interviewer, however, if you will note, she did NOT give him a question, she made a statement and he wanted to correct the statement. At the end of the interview, he was correct in how the media handles these things. They need to come with questions that matter about the voting records, the bills, or the campaigns. What she was doing was not right and it is exactly how ALL journalists and TV hosts are. If it were Hillary Clinton being interviewed in this same way, and she responded in the same way, the outcome would be totally different.
Now here he is, criticized for correcting this interviewer for how she runs through a list at rapid fire, and he is trying to stop her because she is editorializing and not asking questions. If she is going to INTERVIEW someone, she should ASK questions. He has every right to stop the interview to be able to get a chance to ANSWER questions. He has done nothing wrong here. Again I say, if it were Hillary Clinton that were interviewed in the same way, and she responded in the same way, the outcome would be totally different.
