Ron Paul Lashes Out at CNN Reporter

Ron Paul Lashes Out at CNN Reporter

It was a big blowup between Ron Paul and a CNN correspondent.

Things got tense when CNN's Dana Bash asked a question about a New Hampshire voter.

Bash said, "She told me that if she would have been able to just shake your hand and look you in the eye, you would have gotten her vote. But now she's turned off because you left. Does that say anything about your ability to connect?"

"It says something about the media," replied Paul.

A top Paul campaign aide, Jesse Benton, angrily jumped in.

"This is junk. This is a junky question. We're stopping," said Benton.

In the video, which has gone viral, Bash looked stunned as Paul began chastising her.

Paul told Bash, "You, the media, did that to her. She should have been furious with you."

Another CNN correspondent said to Bash during a CNN broadcast, "We get blamed for everything. It's always the media's fault."
