I think that has been Mitt’s strategy from the beginning. He watched McCain’s 2008 fiasco, and learned.
McCain really was dumb enough to think that the “cordial relationships” he had built up with the media over the years would to protect him in the final days of the campaign. Fat chance, that.
Mitt has no illusions. He knows the MSM is the enemy and is not playing their game. In fact, he is actively targeting them.
According to Democrat Pat Caddell, the media have become the enemy of the American People.
The internet with its long reach and longer memory being made available to so many more people in the past few years has erased their edge. And THAT is a very good thing.
Web cams, phone cams, camcorders have made it nearly impossible for them to get away with much of anything. I LOVE that the technology they used to use to lie to us is now an infinite double-edged sword that swings both ways.
