Skip to comments.Paul Ryan: ‘We expected media bias going into this'

On this weekends broadcast of Fox News Sunday, Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan told host Chris Wallace that he and running mate Mitt Romney expected liberal media bias to affect their campaign from day one.
I think it kind of goes without saying that there is definitely a media bias, Ryan said. Look, Im a conservative, Chris. Im used to media bias. We expected media bias going into this. Thats why were trying to cut through and go straight to people. Thats why when in Washington you hear people complain about media bias, come out into these states with us and attend our town hall meetings.
Ryan wouldnt offer specific examples, but said he has witnessed media bias throughout his career.
Im not going into a tit-for-tat or litigate this thing, Ryan said. But as a conservative, Ive long believed, long felt that there is inherent media bias, and I think anybody with objectivity would believe that is the case.

You and Romney play right into it. Your “I agree with gays in the Military” and Romney’s “Obama is a good person” routine are not cutting it.
They did? You could have fooled me! If so, then why did they agree to obviously hard-left debate moderators?
Just wait for the debates. The moderators are going to be meaningless. Ryan and Romney will ignore the questions and take it straight to these two two turds, live on national TV... and with no media filter.
I have never heard any one on FR complain more than you.
In fact, I think you have complained more about the GOP than you have 0bama.
We have to win. Bitching and complaining aren’t going to change things.
I hope so, but not with much hope. I expected R&R to know what’s up with the “news” media, but I don’t like what I’ve seen so far. R&R need to take off the kid gloves, speak directly to the American people. Screw the media; they will NOT give R&R a fair shake.
Allowing the media to set the narrative is a mistake
Maybe he’s diogenes.
This is our shot.
I honestly believe Romney is behind, but I don’t think it is by much. Maybe a couple of points.
We all know the MSM will breathlessly declare the Kenyan the winner of the debates. That isn’t nearly as important as whether or not Romney can present a compelling argument for conservatism during his hour and a half.
If he tries to play it down the middle of the road, he will lose. He needs to be on fire and needs to talk to the hopes and fears of the people.
I am praying he is up for it. I fear for our country’s economic survival if he is not.
Newt Gingrich whipped up on a couple of media guys, Juan Williams for one. Made him look like a foolish stooge. So it can be done.
Call the media a liar to their face if they keep repeating and representing Obama lies as the truth. Always have a recording of the recording so when the Lame Stream Media edits the interview. If the LSM refuses to allow it then on the campaign trail make sure everyone knows of their attempt to skew an interview.
terrific...so why the hell did you no prepare for it other then to bend over and take it???
its sort of like saying “well- we totally expected the 10-degree weather” while you stand there in shorts, sandals and a tank top....utter morons...
We have moved beyond bias to outright campaign support for the liberals by the media.The media is in full campaign mode and the two biggest examples are the aftermath of the Libyan incident, and also the secret video of Mitt’s 47% comment. The media went all out to support BO.
Perdogg that is hilarious. You are so depressing that I am surprised you still live on the Earth. You are a complete downer. You also want to destroy the country so you can drone on and on about your liberalism.
have you bought the new albumn from Octomom? :-) I apologize for my comments.
I apologize for my comments too. Octomom...I think she is the worst person on Earth for real!!!
