"I understand there are places like MSNBC that are essentially the Obama re-election team. But, you know, that's fine. This is a free society.

Can’t argue with Newt on this.
Did he ever call it correct on this one. No argument here.
w/ respect to MSNBC that is....
Of course, we did not actually believe they were there to, ohh, report news stories or some such thing.
“You can not ask the people of the United States to loan you the most powerful governmental job in the world, particularly in a campaign that’s promising very dramatic change, and not have them vet you carefully and thoroughly,” Gingrich said.”
Wondering if the MSM will catch that jab?
Still haven’t decided who I’m going to support, but interesting little jabs such as that at the Media are fun, and enticing treats.
Thank God nobody watches them
agree with him on this a lot.
The media we have have never vetted their messiah or they have and not reported anything on him.
If we ever want to see who the real enemy is then it is the media we have.
From the day bozo came onto the stage at the Dem convention they have been running an election campaign on him.
If you all remember the media if we can call them that said he will be President one day, and boy did they work hard to get him elected.
Even today they ignore how his wife is on these trips, how they take a lot of family with them while ignoring the illegal part of the family who get stopped for DUI, and living on welfare etc.
Ayers was just a man in the area who lived there, Wright might have been a racist but obama was never there when he said his anti American racist views.
Even right now we have a green energy pay off to donors and gun running to the Mexican drug lords who end up killing our border agent.
Well Fox is as long as the Republican is a good little GOP Establishment bots like Romney or Newt.
It’s the entire MSM
Thankfully, both viewers of MSDNC won’t make much of a diff.
I definitely think Newt will be able to combat all media BS. Pretty much he’s been vetted already for years. Anything MSNBC or CNN brings up the public already knows. Unlike Cain (who I still like —he’s a likeable guy)who should have been more forthcoming with his past (if it’s true) —but his team didn’t have the smarts to forsee this. Newt will not be in the same position. I don’t know how Newt will fare with religious conservatives. I am not a big Romney fan, but they should keep away from his Mormonism being an issue. That’s a low blow.
Newt’s rising, and he’s firing a VERY loud shot across the media’s bow.
If they go after him, like they went after Sarah and Cain, he’s going to call them out on it.
That’s what McCain didn’t have the courage to do, out of fear of being called a racist.
Helen Keller could make this call
LOVE IT! :)))
“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.” ~Thomas Jefferson
Newt, so is CBS, ABC, PBS, CNN, NBC, etc.
For the life of me, I don’t understand why more Republicans haven’t done what Newt is doing now, and that is go after the media.
Forget the question the reporter from the LEFT is asking you. He could care less about his question and if you give him a good answer, he/she only care about their LEFT agenda which is to advance their LEFT wing cause.
So forget their question and turn the tables and go after the Reporter! Call him/her out for their hypocritical and or moronic positions.
What do you think, you got something to lose? You think Lawrence Odonnell, or Ed Shultz, or any CNN or New York Times moderator is gonna be satisfied with any answer you give them? Or you are going to sway them? Or they are going to go back and give you a good report?
The LEFT wing media is not different than a Taliban or Muslim terrorist. They will NEVER change, never admit an error and will always lie.
You go Newt. You are doing what the idiot Republicans should have been doing a long time ago. Screw the Media. Well, except for FOX, Talk Radio, and the Wall ST. Journal of course...the rest?.......declare WAR!....it’s WAR against the media!
“If it is Newt how will Barry’s team try to get out of 1 on 1 debates.....”
Diversion. As they always do. They will create, fabrique, hecho, a crisis that makes Obama “not available” that time period as he heroically pursues his job.
It’s what they intend to do with anyone running against Obama.
Newt’s nomination is essentially assuring Obama’s reelection.
Once again the “broken clock theory” of political analysis is proven correct. Thanks Newt...
This is part of why Newt is rising in the pollsbecause hes not afraid to take on the MSM.
Speaking our language Newt, keep it up!
Which is why they will always be 2nd rate, and losers. You run after a garbage truck and you’re more likely to get trashed.
You can not ask the people of the United States to loan you the most powerful governmental job in the world, particularly in a campaign thats promising very dramatic change, and not have them vet you carefully and thoroughly, Gingrich said.
That’s right, Newt. And now, MSM, it’s YOUR turn to vet the Democratic candidate as “carefully and thoroughly” as you have vetted each and EVERY Republican candidate so far in this primary season. Ok, ready, set, go!
What? No takers??
Amazing, the silence.
I hope Newt tears their collective heads off on this.
Here are a few video links to get a better perspective on what Newt's vision is for our Republic ... the overwhelming essence of Newt is that he is a Winston Churchill type for our times:
Newt on jobs:
Newt's new contract With America:
Newt connects the culture and and our economic problems (non-Rotarians):
A shot across the bow is a start but what the media really needs is a spread of torpedoes amidship.
It very well SHOULD be war against the media. I for one could get behind THAT movement.
They are dead, gone, ruined ...they are just evil now, as far as I’m concerned, for all they do to this country and the bias they display.
I don’t know why Americans as a whole don’t put a stop to it. A free press is essential to our liberty.
Newt Gingrich: Lord of the Obvious
It’s actually my number one requirement...rip the media and I’m all yours, candidates.
Newt is basically saying “yes, I’ve done some dumb things” and is asking us to vet him.
Sounds like what we need.
This country needs the obvious. We are being run by kooks.
Three months ago, I’d agree. However, there’s something in the air lately...I can’t quite place it, but I think Gingrich can beat Obama.
It’s starting to look like Nixon in ‘68.
There he goes again — making statements you just can’t argue with and it’s his not-so-secret weapon.
I think maybe Sponge Bob Square Pants could beat Obama.
I'd vote for Plankton.
The vetting is a good thing..distortions by MSNBC and the msm is another. I do believe the American public is aware of the left wing smear attempts. Thanks to not only Fox but conservative talk radio
Spot on, MHGinTN. Follow this link to an article in the American Spectator a few days ago that makes the same point: http://spectator.org/archives/2011/11/15/is-newt-gingrich-americas-chur
or this link on FR: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2808187/posts
Ok, as much as I’m critical of Newt, that was a really good answer.
He’s replete with good answers these days.
Newt also knows that GE’s gambit re: MSNBC State-Run Kommissar to Relect Bobo, actually works against Bobo, because MSNBC has become the nearly-unwatched clearinghouse of libtard dreck; fly paper for weakly-sourced ‘stories’ that otherwise might have gotten airtime on NBC.
And just like Winston Churchill, if Newt gets elected, I feel he will go down in history as one of the great American orators. I think one good speech and he will soar over the head of Obama, even for the usual BO supporters.
Yes, what we need is an “Occupy the Media” movement. They, along with our universities, colleges, and teachers are the real culprits.
Look at what our schools are turning out. It’s time real America stand up and hold the responsible people accountable. University professors, LEFT wing media, Unions, and even Hollywood. The real revolution would be to do something about them.....They are turning out these fools and inciting them.
