Andrea Mitchell: Romney Has Been Getting A "Free Ride" From The Media (Unlike Obama?)
real clear politics ^ | 5/22/2012 | staff

Posted on 05/22/2012 4:30:31 AM PDT by tobyhill

NBC's Andrea Mitchell says the media has given Mitt Romney a "free ride" by not dwelling on how long it took for his former primary rivals to formally endorse him.

Mitchell says the media has always laid off of examining Romney's record and the clash between the elements that make up the Republican party.

"They believe that the Bain Capital record is their best argument against Mitt Romney," NBC's Andrea Mitchell said about the Obama campaign.

"What you pointed out in your opening segment, and the lead in to the Cory Booker interview, was that the media have not really dwelled on how many of these Republicans are not endorsing Mitt Romney in a very, how would you describe the way they've been endorsing Mitt Romney? An elevator closing on -- George W. Bush," Andrew Mitchell said to MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow.

You have to wonder if Democrat media foot soldiers like Andrea Mitchell get bonus checks from the DNC for stuff like this.

Is this the Onion? It must be. Even Andrea Mitchell can’t be this delusional. We know all about an incident in Romney’s life from 1965, and the dog on his car roof 30 years ago. The state run media is all over these, yet they have REFUSED to investigate Obama’s past and constantly battle to deflect and spin anything that might harm him politically. This will be the new line of attack-Romney has been given a free ride by the media because he’s white and rich.

And that was by design. The MSM, even NPR was talking mitt up all through the primaries while they had the knives out for Bachmann, Cain, Santorum and Gingrich. It was blatent.

This woman is a blight on “journalism”. Always present. Ugly, stupid, mean, nasty, uninformed. delusional harpy. Somehow marred the top money guy (Alan Greenspan - born 1926 - 86 years OLD!). Things would go better if she just went away...like Dan “What is the Frequency Kenneth?” Rather.

But hey, she’s unbiased isn’t she?

Free ride?

Andrea, you forget or failed to watch the Brokaw-Rose discussion the weekend before the 2008 election.

Andrea, I posted links here, in case your Google finger is broken:

“Even Andrea Mitchell can’t be this delusional.”

Maybe she let her subscription to the WaPo lapse.

I think that the media has been so slavish, so over the top, in their adoration to Obama that even those who pay almost no attention can see it.

And his self-indulgent wife hasn’t helped him at all. Everyone realizes what would be said if a Republican first lady carried on like Michelle Obama.

Of course the new media helps, but I really think the MSM has done themselves in this time.

Abe Lincoln was right: you CAN’T fool ALL the people ALL the time.

Now that’s funny right there.

Obama has been allowed to skate freely from the beginning...and Andrea’s been driving the Zamboni.

Let’s see . . . I do not recall Mitchell accusing the media of “laying off” of examining Obama’s past history. Gee, I wonder why????

If Romney can't turn The Bain Capital issue back on Urkel, then he's an idiot and deserves to lose.

Naturally, the media want Romney to run so Obama can defeat him.

The GOP too apparently, that's why they don't run a conservative.

I guess they want to pull another McCain and give Obama yet another 4 years.

I wonder if Romney will quote McCain, and say that there is nothing to be afraid of from Obama, and he would make a good president.

When McCain expressed those thoughts, it was as good as voting against himself.

The media will not be allowed to beat up Romney to much after all he is Obama’s back up. With Obama on a golf course every other day he might get hit in the head by a golf ball or encounter an alligator at a water trap.

Everyone must keep in mind, there is no minimum intelligence required to become a journalist, attorney or politician.

Is she still married to Alan Greenspan?

How old is she now?

Are there any counts of how many facelifts she has had already?

As far as I know she ‘s still married to him.

How old she is is anyone’s guess, including her.

How many face lifts?

One more than the national debt.
