Ryan cuts off Michigan reporter grilling him on gun violence, tax cuts
Fox News ^ | October 8, 2012 | Joy Lin

ROCHESTER, Mich. - Paul Ryan abruptly ended an interview with an ABC affiliate in Flint after the reporter tried to grill the vice presidential candidate on gun violence and tax cuts.

"Does the country have a gun problem?" WJRT's Terry Camp asked in a one-on-one interview.

"This country has a crime problem," Ryan responded. After the anchor pressed him on whether he thinks the country has a "gun problem," the self-described deer hunter elaborated, "If you take a look at the gun laws we have, I don't even think President Obama is proposing more gun laws. We have good, strong gun laws."

Camp challenged him again, and Ryan said, "We have to make sure we enforce our laws. We have lots of laws that aren't being properly enforced. We need to make sure we enforce these laws. But the best thing to help prevent violent crime in the inner cities is to bring opportunity to the inner cities." He credited the work of charities, civic groups, and churches with helping to instill "good discipline, good character" in civil society.

In an unlikely turn, the WJRT reporter followed up by asking, "And you can do all that by cutting taxes? With a big tax cut?"

"Those are your words, not mine," Ryan responded curtly. His press secretary Michael Steel interrupted from off-camera, "Thank you very much, sir."

As Ryan began taking off his mic, he commented, "That was kind of strange, you're trying to stuff words in people's mouths?"

Camp replied, "Well, I don't know if it's strange."

Paul Ryan is a smart cookie. He could smell the ambush coming and he didn’t fall for it.

Good to see that Ryan instinctively knows that no one ever lost points for beating up on the media. They do not deserve respect.

This should be the standard course the minute it becomes clear that the interviewer has no interest in actually interviewing, but rather is trying to get a useful soundbite for the opposing candidate.

Mic comes off, thank you very much and f the h off.

Ryan brings class (values, not wealth) and smarts to the game.

The Executive Branch is largely devoid of both lately.

The "Ryan is dishonest" meme is being pushed as the current DNC talking-point on Ryan.
It is showing up on many forums across the internet.

Watch the video. Ryan did not cut off the interview. Someone off-camera ended the interview.

Absolutely...I'm not a big fan of listening to Obama or Biden but I couldn't turn off the debate the other night after watching the first ten minutes.

I have a hunch the Ryan/Biden debate may be just as entertaining.

Guess the Ogang were getting bad reviews for using the word “liar” to describe their opponents so they switched to the word “dishonest”. Yeah, ok, that should fix their fix.

Ryan did not cut him off... he didn’t end the interview... he even questioned the reporter after someone behind the scenes cut the interview abruptly... Ryan is a bad a$$... he stood up to the reporter...

To have a lawless country all you have to do is ignore the laws.

Same goes for a lawless president.

“Good to see that Ryan instinctively knows that no one ever lost points for beating up on the media. They do not deserve respect.”

And that reminds me of General Tecumseh Sherman. People mostly recognize him for burning down the South but I remember him for actually saying that all journalists and reporters should be shot as they report to the enemy anyways.

“William Tecumseh Sherman: If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”

” - - - As Ryan began taking off his mic, he commented, “That was kind of strange, you’re trying to stuff words in people’s mouths?”

Camp replied, “Well, I don’t know if it’s strange.” - - - “

Wake up Ryan:
1.) Journalists do not know right from wrong;
2.) Journalists are paid to advance the Liberal Agenda of the Media;
3.) Without Journalists’ support, Obama would be 10 to 20 % points lower on the Opinion Polls.

BTW, congrats to you and your staff!

I’d have to see it but from the description it doesn’t really sound like he walked off. He answered the questions including the tax one before commenting the interview had been weird.

The Romney Ryan team needs to follow Sununu and Gingrich's lead and continue to EXPOSE the media for being on the Democratic National Committee payroll. We no longer have any journalists. Every time these people request an interview Romney or Ryan simply have to ask the question, 'do you work for ABC or the DNC?' 'does ABC stand for All Barack Channel?' ... 'National Barack Channel'

The media is shameless and they have no moral compass. They have been getting away with this for so long they don't even care now. They will do anything while a dumbed-down public believes everything that they are spoon fed.
