Rand Paul spent most of his second day as a presidential candidate running down the media, which, he made clear, have suspicious motives and are not to be trusted. Hoping for more insight into the Kentucky Republican's relationship with the press and whether the knock on him as "thin skinned" was fair, I reached out to Sam Youngman, a political reporter and columnist at the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Youngman revealed that Paul's team once killed a planned sit-down with the senator after he published a column critical of Paul. He also talked about the overlap between the support bases of Rand and his father, Ron Paul, among other topics. My full conversation with Youngman -- a chat that my friend Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report joined in on -- is below.  Enjoy!
