Ron Paul interview controversy[edit]

In a CNN interview with Ron Paul in December 2011,[8] Borger questioned Paul about racist newsletters that were published in the 1980s and 1990s that bore his name. Paul left the interview, saying that he had already answered CNN's questions on this issue. Other news sources reported on Paul, following his interview with Borger noting his responses to her questions.[9] Shortly after, CNN released a full unedited version of the video. Paul had an interview in excess of eight minutes and was asked many more questions before the newsletters even came up. He ended the interview shortly after being questioned about the newsletters.[10]
