CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta Interviews Dr. Ron Paul on Ground Zero Mosque

On the Monday, August 23rd, 2010 edition of "Anderson Cooper 360", Dr. Sanjay Gupta, guest-host, interviews Representative Ron Paul (R-Tx) regarding the controversy over the "Ground Zero Mosque". This will be remembered as one of the more memorable interviews involving Paul.

Midway through the interview, it becomes clear that the producer in Gupta's ear-piece is prodding him to ask a question to Paul about his son. By the time Gupta asks the same question for the third time, uttering "not to belabor the point, but....", Paul has had enough, and blasts the divisive politics and media tactics, noting that they distract from the real issues.
