Gingrich Unloads on Fox News in Private Meeting
Real Politics ^ | 4-11-12 | Conroy

Posted on 04/11/2012 5:15:16 PM PDT by VinL

- During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted The Fox News Channel, accusing the cable news network that employed him as recently as last year of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight and singling out former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy.

“I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through,” Gingrich said during the private meeting at Wesley College to which RealClearPolitics was granted access. “In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than Fox this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of Fox, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of Fox. That’s just a fact.”

Gingrich’s contract as a Fox News contributor was terminated last spring, as he was gearing up for his White House run.

The former House Speaker’s blunt remarks about Fox came in response to a question from one of the Delaware Tea Party leaders about the manner in which his campaign has been treated by conservative media outlets.

Gingrich did not pull his punches in accusing Rupert Murdoch -- the chairman and CEO of the News Corporation, Fox News’ parent company -- of pushing for Romney behind the scenes.

“I assume it’s because Murdoch at some point said, ‘I want Romney,’ and so ‘fair and balanced’ became ‘Romney,’” Gingrich said. “And there’s no question that Fox had a lot to do with stopping my campaign because such a high percentage of our base watches Fox.”

Gingrich saved his most personal condemnation for George Will, a conservative columnist and frequent television commentator, who has been critical ...(read more)

Seriously, just having fun with you guys... rule number one, never become so emotionally invested in a candidate that you can't move onto the next best thing... Obama is a Black Marxist, and as such, he must be cast out. I would have been happy to support Newt, but he's done... d-o-n-e. You have a choice, you either support the GOP candidate or Obama.

Personally, I know this world is going to come to an end, and can live under whatever regime is installed. I'd rather have had Michelle, but she flew the coop, then Newt was my next choice, he crashed and burned when he choked on FannyMae and FreddyMac. Santorum was a next for me, but he had no appeal to me personally, and lastly we are stuck with u-no-who. I'm about as happy with this choice as I was with McCain... but I'll be damned if I just sit back and not vote because I don't like the man, you never know, the VP may be someone all of us could get behind... go easy now, and have a little fun... you actually gave me a chuckle with your comment, cause I do know how you feel.

Livius, you keep commenting on Rush in the bag for Romney- because you’re absolutely right. That’s why he’s losing his audience. Don’t doubt me on this.

Yes, he's been a stealth Romney supporter for awhile.

Here's an interesting little anecdote - today one of Rush's soundbites was romney answering a question about the war on women... and he answered back that obama is the one who has a war on women, and cited some statistics about how many women have lost jobs under obama.

A caller called in to say he disagreed with romney's response, but Rush defended Romney's response heartily. Here's the thing - Limbaugh was saying the exact same thing yesterday, almost word for word. Rush is giving romney talking points via his program, and Rush is getting off on it. It's like some big sticky thrill for him, romney taking advice from him.

Rush could never do that with Newt. He knows it.

I haven’t been sure what is going on with Rush. He hasn’t been himself. But your theory makes sense.

My criteria for determining if they are in the tank for Rom. is whether they are starting to give on air advice to him on what he should do to win over conservatives..
and I’ve heard El Rushbo do exactly that recently.

I’m away from Levin(on vaca). Anyone know if he is continuing his rightful criticism of Mitt-meister? Or has he bailed too and become one of his unofficial “consultants’. I would guess not.
That’s why he’s THE GREAT ONE!!!!

He never ran a serious candidacy. As in working for two years beforehand raising money, building an organization, getting on all the ballots. And NOT taking off a month last summer to go on a month-long Mediterranean cruise.

the thing is, Newt's still in, and except for Romney, everybody else is gone. So you might want to think that through a little more.

Oh, dear, you guessed wrong. Last night, he said it was time for conservatives to pull a victory out for Romney. Newt can't win, and now that Santorum's gone, it's time to start fighting Obama.

I wish I was kidding..

You and I have already discussed this matter- twice. You told me you listen to Rush in your car, everyday, while you work. Isn’t that correct???

Well, with all due respect, if that’s the case, you have absolutely no authority to be referring to others as “idiots” or “morons”.

Don’t doubt me on this— Rush was in the bag for Romney and the GOP-e.

Fox News was not too fond of the Tea Party either. It was very clear that they rallied around Mitt Romney from the start... Rove to Coulter to Imus. Fox supports the establishment after all they are invited to the dinners and cocktail parties with the rinos in charge. It is Newt that would undo the damage done by Obama and turn this nation around...what is to fear?

Yes. Some of us are business people who need to travel to meet clients on a regular basis. It's actually fairly common but you wouldn't know anything about that. And you think that makes me an idiot. Okay.

But yes, you were trolling here just a couple of weeks ago and I wasted my time responding to you.

You don't listen to Rush's show, but you bleat that Rush supports Romney. It is clear to those of us who do listen to Rush on a regular basis that he is ambivalent about - - and even suspicious of - - Romney. Rush plays it close to the vest but I got the impression he preferred Gingrich. Rush's brother voted for Santorum in the primary and I think Rush likes Santorum, too. Whatever.

The thing is, you're a liar, and I have no time for liars.

So post away, you scumbag. I don't know or care what your game is, but I won't be posting to you again.

Hey, Katsie, where ya’ been lately? Busy, huh.

The thread trolls are have been singing soprano all over FR since it’s NEWT left standing, after all. Broke, yes, but still the MAN—the only grown up in the race.

If he wants TAMPA, he will be there in his signature style.

Can’t wait!

Here is my letter to Fox News from January:

January 12, 2012

Gentlemen:

I have watched Fox News for many years. I recently have noticed a huge shift to being disingenuous, false and unreliable in your reporting. Obviously, you are for Romney.

Many of your viewers know Rove is associated with a SUPERPAC which is being used by Romney against Gingrich called “Restore Our Future.” Yet he is brought onto Fox as an analyst who supposedly is neutral.

Furthermore, your station quoted the nonpartisan tax center as being an authority in their criticism of Gingriches tax plan. Because I have been noticing your obvious bias in your reporting, I looked on the internet to investigate this center. Guess what? They are liberal and not worthy of Fox News to use as a credible source. Gingrich has sent out a legal notice to the media warning them not to show ads by Romney which falsely say he was fined in the 90’s. After Gingrich sent out this legal notice…..lo and behold….I saw Shepherd Smith yesterday LIE and say the Speaker was fined.

I have heard chiding remarks by several people on Fox such as Brit Hume saying Gingrich has “road rage” and Ann Coulter on Redeye saying “Gingrich is crazy, you know.” For the sake of brevity, I am not listing all the instances I have seen here.

I am astounded to see such bias, viciousness, unprofessionalism and downright false news reporting from a station I depended on to get my real news. The fact that I know your true agenda now makes me want to tune out more than tune in and I feel quite disappointed to learn that you cannot be relied upon for the truth.

I have literally switched to CNN or MSNBC when I wanted to see a particular speech or event now that you will not show and I have not watched them since the 90’s. The way I look at it now …what is the difference between them and you when you quote liberal sources as legitimate?

I guess it took this election to open my eyes to your station and now I know your news is not reliable. I will never quite view Fox again in the same way. Your credibility is in the toilet now and I cannot believe you think your viewers are that stupid.

By the way, Stephen Moore with the WSJ has called for Newt to stand down and save his dignity. Well, with you people dragging him through the mud every day what does he have to lose if he stays in? Today I saw Fox show that old false ad that Newt warned media not to run or there will be legal ramifications. You showed the whole ad. I would think your station would abide by the law and have some ethics in your reporting but that will not happen when you are trying to push Romney across the finish line.

Destroying a reputation for your own agenda shows me it is you who has no dignity. Why am I still watching your station? Well, I like to find out what you are up to so I can stay on top of it and let others know.

Sincerely,

A disappointed viewer

This is a great letter, and I paragraphed it up a little, so maybe more people will read it. I hope that's okay.

I read somewhere that Fox's ratings were down 17% for February, but I can't swear to that. I keep an eye out for that information. I too wrote them, and if there ratings have gone down, then at least they have some idea of why.

STay Strong!

He has said several times, all the jostling was good for the candidates, straight through the primaries, it was making them better candidates, let the debate and the discussion go on.

Now, all of a sudden, it's time to support romney and focus on Obama.

Santorum had barely quit 4 hours earlier. He couldn't even wait till the dust cleared or the first polls came out without Santorum, to see how it all settled out. It was time right now to start supporting romney.

He also said some very negative things about Newt, but it would be too sad to repeat them. I cried last night. but it was very very eye-opening, to say the least.

Stay Strong! Newt's going to Tampa!

Gimmie a break. Newt is and was a HORRIBLE candidate who has a very limited appeal with voters. The fact he was touted as a potential nominee just shows how dreadful the Republican party has become. We have a lying incompetent President and this was the best the GOP could field? Awful. Just awful.

That's sheikdetailfeather's letter. It was great.

Oh, I have a feeling by the time this all shakes out, a lot of people's true colors will be shown. I am still reeling from Mark Levin endorsing Romney last night. I would have bet the farm he wouldn't have done that till he was the nominee. I mean the farm, if I had one.

Oh, katie, there are some great things that will be happening in the next weeks for Newt...

I never thought Santorum would be gone this soon... this is a game changer... if you are a prayer, keep praying!

Kicking "some azz" is just the beginning!

Stay Strong!

Bottle the acid, delivery boy, you’re over the line. For a “businessman”— you’re vocabulary appears extraordinarily limited.

You initiated this interchange by calling Livius an “idiot”. If you’re going to hurl toilet writings, you should be prepared for a reaction.

Sleep it off— you have a long day in the truck tomorrow.

TBF...I am in to the end. Our founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves. Sheik wrote a good letter and I hope they read it on the airwaves. It is unbelievable about Levin. Do you think the Romney camp got to him? or he decided to endorse on his own? Levin is too smart not to be aware of Mitt's liberal record.
Vote Newt...the last conservative standing

I don't know what's going on with Mark Levin. I decided awhile back that rush was a stealth romney supporter, it irritated me, but I think Rush has always been part of the establishment, and likes being considered a kingmaker. I would imagine most of his rich friends supported romney from the get-go.

Not only does Mark Levin know about romney's horrible record, just tonight he was railing against romney. I don't know what's up, but I would guess it will become more apparent as the days go on.

I think it might have something to do with Santorum. One of the things he said last night was Newt should have gotten out, and supported Santorum to form a united conservative front against Romney.

Levin has some real blind spots when it comes to Santorum. And Santorum has pandered to him on the air, so who knows what he has said to him about Newt behind closed doors. That would be the most merciful rendering of it - Mark stepping up because a friend asked him to...

True Colors time, that's for sure... that's a gorgeous pic.

DeMint also really surprised me.

DeMint was the real shocker for me. I have always held him in the highest regard. Honestly, I never had that much respect or regard for Santorum and can't understand why Levin would have ever backed him. Windflier's post on what a big govt conservative looks like exploited RS record. You are right on Rush...heard him defending Mitt on the Women's issues and votes today. As for Romney...can anyone name a handful of conservative things he has accomplished? yet, we can all name a ton of conservative accomplishments by Newt. I am praying Addelson will donate some more money to Newt. PS...I am in awe of the pro Newt photos on this fb site I go to...have met some strong folks that are gung ho for Newt.

but I have learned to hate Fox. Frankly, I no longer watch much news on TV.... Fox ruined it for me.

same here. I can't remember when I last looked at FOX. Even now, I rarely go back an look at Palin on youTube. She was the last person I would tune in to see on FOX.

FOX is about as Conservative as Mitt.

We got what we got, folks. Let’s work it and beat Obama.

LOL. Mitt is a fraud. If he had an honest bone in his body he would run as a RAT. At least Obama would never lie and pretend to be a Conservative.

I still pray everyday that Mitt will falter and lose the nomination. If he gets the GOP-e nod, I will have great joy watching him get slaughtered on Election night. I will vote Conservative down ticket and do a write-in for President.

With Mitt or Obama the destination is exactly the same. see my tagline.

but I don’t feel we can as a country survive 4 more years of Obama

What crock. What most likely will happen is Obmam will bring the government bureaucracy crashing down (not his intention). The people will always be able to recover once we hit rock bottom.

There will be serious structural reform. The good hard working people will rise up peacefully to throw off the chains of local, state and national government sadists. If the parasite class resists, they will be pushed aside by all means necessary.

Our Republic will be reborn, it's only a matter of time.

Like father like son? Why, yes, of course!

I do not believe them to be Liberals but socialists who prefer the title ‘progressive’. Still, a fascist by any other name is still a fascist.

He said he would support the nominee, no matter who it turned out to be. I am very disappointed in Mark.

I stopped listening to Rush after Bloody Thursday. I stopped sometime back listening to Mark because he was unfairly attacking Newt. I am much happier not having them try to fool me into voting from Mitt. I get my news mainly from Free Republic.

You’re just asking to get your fanny kicked off of Free Republic. This isn’t about being emotionally invested with a candidate: it is about love of country and wanting to save it.

Romney is a self-professed progressive, and a fascist by any other name is still a fascist, no matter what effort is made to change the name and sweeten appearances.
