Rand Paul has sparred with the mainstream media since his victory last week in the Republican primary for the Kentucky Senate seat. Following an ideological dust-up with Bill O'Reilly and Rachel Maddow, Paul canceled an appearance on the media institution "Meet The Press," a bold move considering the talk show's reputation as a political trial-by-fire.
This week, Paul met the media head on, declaring MSNBC "biased" and "unfair." "They need to be a little more careful reporting their news," said Paul in an interview Joe Arnold of WHAS-11."They basically stated something adamantly that was my position that wasn't my position, and they did it all day long on national news, and I don't think that's very fair." Despite his previous verbal sparring with Maddow, Paul oddly noted that he felt fairly treated by the MSNBC commentator.
