Another CNN Interview with Ron Paul Cut Short — NYT Reports Paul Campaign Manager Shouted at Reporter

(By Christopher Santarelli, The Blaze) - Republican presidential primary candidate Texas Rep. Ron Paul had another unfriendly exchange with CNN Monday, as The New York Times reports that the candidate ended an interview at a campaign stop in Hollis when CNN reporter Dana Bash asked about his ability to connect with voters in New Hampshire. Top campaign aide Jesse Benton stepped in when Paul was asked a question about a chaotic incident earlier in the day, and the Times reports that Benton “could be seen — and heard — shouting at Ms. Bash as Mr. Paul walked away.”
