Hostile reporter wonders if Paul Ryan will fight crime with lower taxes

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Apparently passing opinion off as news isn’t a practice limited to NBC News and MSNBC. While giving an interview to a local reporter, Paul Ryan and his team grew frustrated with the interviewer’s attempts to put words in the candidates mouth. After being asked strange questions that heavily implied a progressive bias, Ryan and his team abruptly ended the interview.

TheBlaze describes the exchange:

“Does this country have a gun problem?” the interviewer asked.

“This country has a crime problem,” Ryan replied.

“Not a gun problem?” the interviewer asked again.

Ryan went on to explain that not even President Obama is talking about implementing more gun laws. He said the country’s existing laws just need to be enforced.

“The best thing to help prevent violent crime in the inner cities is to bring opportunity in the inner cities. Is to help teach people good discipline, good character. That is civil society. That is what charities and civic groups and churches do to help one another make sure that they can realize the value in one another,” Ryan said.

“And you can do all that by cutting taxes? With a big tax cut?” the reporter asked out of nowhere.

“Those are your words not mine,” Ryan shot back.

Immediately after the “tax cut” question, someone off camera interrupts the interview and Ryan gets up from his chair and begins taking off his microphone. He then looked to his interviewer and said, “That was kind of strange. You trying to stuff words in people’s mouths?”

Soon after the interview, an Obama campaign spokesman tried to paint the incident as an example of Ryan’s “temper and penchant for dishonesty”.

Glenn, however, saw it as the latest example of the media trying to create an anti-conservative narrative. He noted that Ryan has done 197 interviews since being announced as VP, while Biden has only given one. In all of that time, the media has pretty much ignored Ryan, and Glenn believes it’s because he isn’t the gaffe machine that Biden is.

“I guess he’s doing a good job,” Glenn said.

WATCH the interview below:

    Once again we see the MSM media’s blatant biases and hypocrisy – they are now so utterly desperate to try and tie gun control, tax cuts, crime fighting and all else into one nonsensical package.

    God above let the truth come out and shine bright and receptively into peoples hearts so we can defeat the progressives and return the nation to where it should be.

  • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    So called ‘interviews’ such as this by the MSM Liberal elitists shows the truth of one matter – their days of bias and hypocrisy are numbered.

    Was the reporter Joe Biden?

    • SoThere

      Obama is only fighting the crime he wants to fight. He’s issued orders to the Feds to selectively enforce federal law, sells guns to drug dealers (his former suppliers) and looks the other way when Racist Bigots intimidate voters at the polls.

      All liberal reporters are either hostile or morons.

      • Sam Fisher

        It is sickening what gives him the right to break laws and kill people. He should be put on trial for all these crimes against the constitution.

  • SoThere

    Every time a leftist idiot tries to spin an interview Republicans should end it. There’s no need to talk to idiots!

    • E. Browning Bosley

      I think a better idea would be to get a full uninterupted transcript and show the transcript on a website before the official interview airs.

    Ah look.
    glenn hates it when real journalists call Ryan out on his lies and idiotic ideas.
    Maybe Ryan should hire a cult member like sldtsr/guest to protect Ryan from intelligent interviews from real reporters!!!

We Don’t Have a Gun Problem We Just Have To Enforce Our Laws and Teach People To Be Civil To Each Other Once Again! and we can’t have that with AntiAmericanIslamist Terrorist Barry-Hussein-Obama’s THUGocracy! We Have To Put The Kind Back In manKIND!

      Maybe vulgar little minded racist bigots like strtlk should get some help for his sickness. Please stay away from the little children.

      Folks, this is the vulgar face of the Liberal Progressives in this country.

      Ok dufus. Whatever you say. You’re just as desperate as your annointed one. Folks, this piece of matter is already on suicide watch. Oh, and by the way, can’t wait for tomorrow night’s debate. If you thought Obamass was pummeled, wait until Ryan’s through with half-wit Biden. I know truth’s difficult for you to understand, but it always prevails. Get ready, because here it comes.

  • Bullseye

    It is not a tax cut that pays for anything. It is a revenue stream that pays for things. If lowering taxes increases revenue, then the argument needs to flip to revenue. Romney touched on it in the debate, but in my opinion it needs repeating and repeating and repeating. Say the same thing in different ways until the mindless understand.

    i want kill bad aghost barack obama, verry bad……….. aghost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • landofaahs

    When the debate between Ryan and the idiot Biden takes place, Biden the bumper sticker idiot that he is will probably use his idiotic “GM is alive and Bin laden is dead” jingo. Paul Ryan’s response should be “Al Quaeda and the Taliban are alive and growing and our Ambassador and 3 other Americans are dead because of the stupid policies of the obama administration. The people who were suppose to protect the embassy don’t just need guns, they need bullets too. Andy Griffith was smart enough to at least give Barney Fife one bullet you idiots. How much more then for Some seals?
