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.

If there’s any GOPer I wouldn’t mind losing in 2018, it’s “Man Tan” Mitt Romney.
Look at what has happened to Mia Love who lit up the internet as a true conservative woman of color who jumped ship to pander to liberals with a deceptive amnesty bill.
Polls show she is about to turn her seat over to a democrat.
He’s just trying for 2024:-)
Romney proved it wasn’t smart to roll over for the Press.
Has he ever made an attack on a Dem?
Let’s replay the ads about Romney killing a woman with cancer.
Mittens ... we’ll take your vote but your an idiot.
And I hesitate to read anything about him, LOL. I am ashamed to admit that he and Ryan had me completely fooled. I think that is the reason that I have nothing but contempt for the both of them. No one likes to be made a fool of...
Something tells me that ole Mitt is “running” to replace that loser McCain and will play spoiler when ever he can.
I'll take "No" for $1000 Alex.
Mitt thinks that by expressing solidarity with the media they will write nice things about him.
He doesn’t seem to get it that they only cover Republicans positively when they bash fellow Republicans. Other than that, their usual modus operandi is to savage Republicans.
If the media is lying, blatantly partisan, full of double standards and hypocrisy and pretty much not doing its job of fairly, truthfully and responsibly reporting the news, then it is an enemy of the people. It is nothing but propaganda.
Romney would probably defend Pravda of the Soviet Union days, or whatever drivel Josef Goebbels used to promulgate to the German people.
Mitt Romney speaking to an empty stadium. Picture at the link.
What a putz. This jerk stood idly by while the press tarred and feathered him. With an honest media he would be “former president Dumb Ass”, not just plain old Dumb Ass.
Wonder why he and PRyan threw their candidacies to help Obama and Biden win reelection.
Even George W. Romney refused to attack LBJ in 1964 but may have mouthed off a few platitudes in early 1968.
She’s apparently just a con artist looking for a gig
It’s not so much that Mittens and PRyan made fools of us; it’s that we had no viable alternative.
