Ryan to reporter: Don’t stuff words into my mouth

posted at 9:21 am on October 9, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Just remember: there’s no such thing as media bias.  Reporter Terry Camp got a rebuke from Paul Ryan at the end of this interview for the ABC affiliate in Detroit, when Camp asked a “weird” question of Ryan at the end of a string of queries on gun violence.  After Ryan talked about the need for communities and groups within them to create moral structures and education and for government to push pro-growth policies to create jobs and opportunities in the inner cities, Camp tried tossing in a gotcha question — and got rebuked by Ryan as the interview ended:

Politico picked up the story:

When it aired, reporter Terry Camp characterized the interview as ending badly, and said Ryan was “not specific in his answers.” Meanwhile, the Ryan campaign said the candidate was asked a “weird question” relating gun violence to tax cuts.

Actually, Camp mischaracterized this in two different ways.  First, Ryan was providing responsive answers to the gun questions.  Camp was asking broad, philosophical questions, not specific questions on proposals or individual laws, and Ryan was providing philosophical answers.  Second, Camp tells viewers at the beginning of the clip that the interview ended badly when he began asking about gun violence — which is patently untrue, as the video shows.  It ended badly when Camp tried to connect gun violence to tax cuts, and Ryan and his team called him out for it while the cameras were still running.  In fact, when Ryan challenges Camp for “stuffing words in my mouth,” Camp can’t even come up with a defense … even though his microphone is still hot.

An editor should have known from watching the interview that Camp mischaracterized the end of it in his introduction.  The local ABC affiliate still let Camp’s introduction go to air.  Draw your own conclusions from that.

There is no way to GOTCHA Paul Ryan – he’s way too sharp.

…ask the reporter “whose thing” is stuffed into their mouth!

Stupid reporter tricks.

itsspideyman on October 9, 2012 at 9:25 AM

Oh, so if the govt confiscates all of our money, it won’t have to bother to confiscate all of our guns because gun crime will go away as a result of a 100% tax rate for all?

I get it now.

Akzed on October 9, 2012 at 9:26 AM

Good of Ryan for maintaining his composure.

aunursa on October 9, 2012 at 9:27 AM

If he had gone over his allotted time, the staffer should’ve cut it off before then. But yeah, I don’t blame Paul Ryan at all…ridiculously stupid questions meant to hurt him.

Ryan is sharper than any reporter…gotcha questions will be delt with properly, and that is a warning shot to the debate moderators…

Was Ryan getting a little dig in about our rainbow boyz and their political tactics? If so, his street cred just doubled from my viewpoint.

That right there is subjective negative editorializing, not reporting.

magicbeans on October 9, 2012 at 9:39 AM

What a jerk! So, now the paradigm is to include stuff after the interview while the subject doesn’t realize the cameraman photojournalist is still rolling… and then make that the feature part of your story?

You might want to get up a little earlier in the morning next time, Mr. Camp. Especially since next time you’ll be interviewing Vice President Ryan, not Congressman Ryan.

It’s not ‘gun violence’; it’s PEOPLE violence; the tools involved do not matter. The biggest mass murder in recent history (the Rwandan genocide; 900,000 in less than 4 months) was done primarily with machetes.

michaelo on October 9, 2012 at 9:45 AM

Ryan handled himself well. The TV anchor behaved like a typical local news anchor with an inflated sense of self-importance angling for a slot on a network or newsmagazine.

Yes, dolt, tax cuts. Anything to improve the dreadful economic conditions we’ve been mired in, stir business and enterprise, create jobs, give youth something to aspire to other than flash mobs that invade a store en masse and just take whatever they think they’re entitled to because they haven’t ever had someone in their lives to tell them it’s wrong, present positive role models like Rep. Ryan and take this country back from those who only have their d@mn hand out for something they didn’t earn after four years of listening to an empty suit/chair president who has taught them that it’s right to punish someone else’s success.

Next question.

michaelo on October 9, 2012 at 9:45 AM

platypus on October 9, 2012 at 9:49 AM

Ryan was NOT going to play the reporter’s game. Turning the interview around early on. Giving concise answers while taking the wind of the bed wetter’s sails.

His ‘tax cut’ snark was feeble at best and Ryan easily slapped it back… Game. Set. Match!

Masterfully played, Congressman Ryan!

UNFORTUNATELY, Fox this morning is describing this incident as concluding with “Ryan walking out of the interview.”

Which didn’t happen but was initially and wrongly reported to have happened. To the contrary and contrary to what FOX said this a.m., Ryan did NOT ‘walk out’ but remained in place with this manipulative “reporter” after Ryan called the reporter’s bluff.

Vince on October 9, 2012 at 9:36 AM

The reporter, like most lefties, believes that only big government (and big government spending) can help the problems (like the gun violence plaguing cities like Detroit and Chicago) caused by the break-down of families in the inner cities. In fact, it was idiotic, counter-productive, big government policies that led to the breakdown of those families in the first place.

If you see the word “specific” in a reports patter, you know he got the memo. These guys aren’t even smart enough to spruce up their political tactics with different words.

Terry Camp joined ABC12 in the fall of 2003 and co-anchors ABC12′s First at Four with Karen Gatlin when he’s not working out of the Saginaw newsroom as a general assignment reporter.
After graduating from Ubly High School, Terry attended Michigan State University and then landed his first TV job in Alpena.

Terry moved to Oklahoma and then came back to Mid-Michigan, where he worked at WNEM-TV for six years before joining the ABC12 team.

Terry has done just about every on-air job there is to do. In fact, he even received a Michigan Association of Broadcasters award for his anchor work during a Michigan snow storm.

With three daughters and a son, Terry finds himself suddenly sleepless and involved in children’s projects, a responsibility he enjoys. Terry and his family live in the Saginaw area.

Like I said. Loser.

Who conflates gun laws with taxes? It’s not even a “gotcha” question or weird. It’s incomprehensible babbling- like an over-caffeinated rain-man trying to mimic the intelligence level of an 8 year old.

Marcus Traianus on October 9, 2012 at 10:18 AM

Dear Mr. Camp:

If you want a specific answer, you need to ask a question seeking one. Either that, or quit pretending you’re a journalist. You put the rest of us to shame.

I liken him to the Saginaw version of Soledad O’Brien. He thinks he’s smarter than he actually is. He throws out these big ideas like he is an expert on the subject. But that last bit really was nothing more than a leftie trying to get a dig in at Ryan. Good for Ryan to call him on it.

Imagine the DUMBEST, good looking person you know … subtract 20 IQ points and add a crapton of vanity. You know have your typical TV talking head. Once upon a time (Ted on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”) the media made fun of this fact. Now they have become sacrosanct sacred cows.

THIS is the reason Obama gets worshipped by the media; he IS one of THEM fo all intents and purposes.

Obama’s use of “straw man” arguments is how the media frames the opening of ANY piece you see from the MSM.

MSM people “frame the narrative” to achieve their agenda. This is why they NEVER push back on Obama.

If they delegitimize his gaming the narrative with “straw man arguments” – they delegitimize how they do their jobs.

GOTCHA doesn’t work without an element of surprise. The LAME stream media is, and has been (Thank You Sarah!), exposed for their dishonest, biased nature that defines them.

There can be no gotcha surprises when you go into an interview looking for them. It would be even nice for the interviewee to ask the Democrite with the microphone- “Is that your gotcha question? man that’s a stretch, or maybe thats pretty dishonest”

Call these buffoons out for what the are. Goes for the creeps at AP news wire as well.
