Politico Exposes Romney Press Corps as Partisan, Petty, and 'Bitter'
This is also why the lead story at the corrupt Politico right now is about the media's favorite subject -- itself.
But in his attempt to excuse and defend his fellow Obama Palace Guards from their appalling behavior at Poland's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Dylan Byers actually exposes just what a petty, childish bunch of left-wing crybabies the media really is:
Over seven days in the UK, Israel and Poland, Romney held just one media availability for the U.S. traveling press — and even then, standing outside 10 Downing St. in London, he answered only three questions. While he gave a series of interviews to the major television networks, he granted no interviews to other U.S. outlets.
The snub has become the straw that broke the back of an already bitter press corps, long frustrated by limited access to the Republican candidate on the campaign trail. And those frustrations, which traveling reporters are voicing loud and clear online, are putting unprecedented pressure on the Romney campaign’s communications team.
The tensions came to a head in Warsaw today when reporters, increasingly aware that there would be no end-of-tour press avail with the candidate, began shouting questions at Romney as he walked back to his vehicle from a wreath-laying at their Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
It's just a fact that during this trip, among others, Romney sat down for extensive, in-depth interviews with Greta Van Susteren, Piers Morgan, Wolf Blitzer, and Brian Williams. Thus, what Byers inadvertently admits here is not that the traveling press corps was fighting for some higher ideal that says a presidential nominee should avail himself to the media -- because Romney most certainly did that -- what Byers reveals here is that -- in his words -- the "bitter" and "frustrated" press corps had a childish temper tantrum on sacred ground this morning because they wanted Romney to answer their questions, not someone else's.
What Byers also accidentally reveals is that he and the corrupt media are most upset over the fact that Romney isn’t suffering from Battered Women's Syndrome. Because here's what these entitled crybabies screamed today:
CNN: 'Governor Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?'
NYT: 'Governor Romney, do you have a statement for the Palestinians?'
Washington Post: 'What about your gaffes?'
NYT: 'Governor Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?
This isn't serious questioning, it's openly taunting Romney and now these bubbled elitists are actually wondering why after they've spent a week beating him senseless with nonsense, Romney wouldn't want to be Tina to their Ike….
Come on, Anna Mae, it will be better this time. I promise. You know I love you, baby. Come back to me now. You better come back to me, hear? Damn you, Anna Mae, if you don’t-- COME HERE, G**DAMMIT!
All I know is this: Now that the trip is over, Benjamin Netanyahu and Lech Walesa loved hosting Romney and the Palestinians and our crybaby media are boo-hooing like the spoiled children they are.
In other words, Romney's trip was about as successful as it gets.
