Source: “I’m an Audio Engineer, I’ve done live shows, and I can tell you for a fact that they muted Ron Paul’s applause tonight at this debate.”
He goes on to note: “A couple different [occasions], I can check the highlights later. But my ears were thrown off at a few different places. They pulled the faders down fast. It was sad.”
Another user comments:
I suppose the best way to confirm this is to have someone who was at the debate watch a highlight reel of the broadcast and either confirm or deny what took place at the event.
Listen to Ron’s highlight reel below. Unfortunately the reel is cut so you can’t hear the applause very well.
