Skip to comments.Romney says Trump calling news media 'enemy of the people' hurts democracy, freedom
Posted on 11/01/2018 12:07:23 PM PDT by LiberalismDestroys
Mitt Romney cant "conceive of thinking or saying" the news media is an enemy as President Donald Trump continues to do, according to an essay he posted on his campaign website Thursday.
Romney wrote that someone asked him at a recent campaign event whether he would take action to shut down ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and the New York Times.
"When I responded of course not, and that, in fact, I would do everything in my power to preserve freedom of speech, the person persisted by arguing that these outlets purvey fake news," the Republican U.S. Senate candidate said.

Romney misquoting is what is really harmful.
Wear a dress already Mitt!
Trump is not talking about shutting down CNN, ABC or anything else. They are doing a pretty good job of destroying themselves.
How do you figure, Mitt? The news “media” IS the enemy of the people and they do hurt democracy and freedom. They all need to be deported with their pals in the anti-American UN.
Anyone have a muzzle for this dog?
Rommey? Who?? I know him not.
People in UT seem confused with the state of national affairs.
Mittens, it’s obvious you can’t conceive of acting like you have a pair.
The media is responsible for 95% of the division in the country. They decide what is news and they use that to benefit the left.
Has Romney watched the offending media coverage to which the President responds?
This is stupid.
Romney appears to be conflating two things that don’t go together.
First, labeling the “fake news” media as an enemy (like Trump has done) is fine - that’s “freedom of speech”, too.
Second, he relates some anecdote about some yokel wanting to “shut down” these outlets, something Trump has never done, said, or even thought about. So - I guess - he looks like a hero for doing something that everyone agrees with, and nobody wants to do the opposite anyway.
Beat that strawman harder, Mitt.
You just can’t keep your Establishment Mouth shut can you?
Except when dealing with Barack Hussein OCommie
You LOST to HIM, Mittens
What does that say about your sorry ass?
You POS . .. shut up and GTHO of our country. You don’t belong here
No wonder Mittens lost in 2012.
The media is our enemy and we need to destroy it.
No matter what fredocon Mittens says or thinks about it.
This was the guy who gave us sn Obama second term because he didnt want to offend anyone.
Romney is an ass and will never be President. He is buying his Senate seat in Utah.
JFK had lots of words about the damage done by the press. It’s nothing new. President Trump is just more direct which Americans love.
Mitt, your way doesn’t work.......period.
Has he got his pussy hat?
The season has changed. Why dont you go dress one of your Barbie dolls, Mitt?
