CNN Cut Off US Army Soldier, Cpl, Supporting Ron Paul, Anti-War, 2012 Iowa Caucus

CNN was interviewing a 28 year old active duty US Army Corporal, Jesse Thorsen, who voted for Ron Paul and explained why.

"I'm really excited about alot of his ideas especially when it comes to bringing the soldiers home I've been serving for ten years now and all ten years of those have been during war-time. I'd like to see a little peace-time army and I think he has the right idea," Thorsen said.

The reporter said other Republicans view Paul's foriegn policy objective to bring troops home from overseas conflicts to be dangerous.  Thorsen replied: "I think it would be even more dangerous to start nit-picking wars with other countries..." the feed goes dead and they move on to continue their biased support for Mitt Romney.

This is more than a little fishy considering this was the ONLY dropped feed during the entire broadcast.   I can just imagine the director yelling "cut him off; shut him up," behind the scenes.

This is yet another example of the mainstream medias bias against Paul and his policies for personal liberty, limited government, and sound currency, which they've made no attempt to conceal.

A disgusting piece of journalism.

At least they're consistent ;)


  1. She did not imply his views were dangerous... She made the comment that the other candidates felt it was dangerous ...anyone keeping up would know this, it is no secret. And by the way man it is called violation of DOD policy and we take it seriously. You don't get to pick and chose what you will respect and obey when u wear the uniform.

  2. *Other Republicans view his foreign policy as dangerous - Fixed.

    What part of DOD policy did he violate?

  3. Following is an excerpt from Paragraph 4 of the DOD Directive.

    4.1.2. A member of the Armed Forces on active duty shall not: Speak before a partisan political gathering, including any gathering that
    promotes a partisan political party, candidate, or cause. Participate in any radio, television, or other program or group discussion as an advocate for or against a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.

  4. Totally man, CNN is so right winged. Look at their coverage leading up to the Iraq war.

  5. Their Iraq war coverage was total fear mongering. They were no threat to us. But when a lie is big enough and repeated often enough, the masses often believe it. Their supposed weapons of mass destruction were never found...
