Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan walked out of an interview with Detroit's ABC News affiliate after the local news anchor attempted to "stuff words" in his mouth. Ryan was answering a series of questions about violence, guns and gun control laws.
Ryan, addressing gun violence, said the best thing to do is to "help teach people good discipline [and good character. Local anchor Terry Camp asked Ryan if he could do all of that "by cutting taxes" which caused him to get up and end the interview.

Cheers for Paul Ryan!!!
Good,hope this is a trend.
Good for him.
Hey leftards... you act like sh!t... you will be treated like sh!t!
WJRT is FLINT, not Detroit.
I agree with Paul Ryan. Just walk off when they try to pull something stupid.
Good for him.
At the same time Ryan made a mistaken even walking into the situation.
It's probably not possible for moderate minded independent staffers to figure this out ~ but most Freepers can.
Agree. Needs to be seen.
The ambush per planned press conference Romney did shows what we are up against. After that absurd ambush Romney saw we are in the Pravda media era. Only way to handle it is these debates and going directly to the people.
Watch the video, Ryan did not end the interview. It was ended by someone off-camera.
Trying to screw with your interview subject rather than elicit meaningful responses with genuinely insightful questions.
Dumbass gotcha questions from a typist who doesn't have half the intelligence that Ryan does.
My father's response to people like him was always, "Go scratch your ass."
Shocker! Media is lying.
Good for Ryan. That was an absurd question with no relation to the topic at hand. It’s likely the reporter was hoping for a “gotcha!” moment and Ryan saw where this was heading.
Good for Ryan.
Although part of me wanted Ryan to take it to this guy and school him. But the guy wasn't worth Ryan's effort.
Good debate prep for Ryan however.
After Ryan answered question, I heard Thank you very much sir from questioner. Words that meant to me, the interview was over at which time Ryan took off his microphone and said the words were strange. It was the questioner, not Ryan, who ended the interview. As always, the media seems to be distorting what really happened.
Wow, thanks for posting that!
