FOX News this morning accused the mainstream networks of media bias, claiming they asked Mitt Romney questions that led him to give less than substantial answers that are now causing an uproar and that have many questioning the readiness of the Republican nominee. FOX and Friends played an audio recording that supposedly exposed CBS reporter Jan Crawford coordinating with an NPR reporter to ask questions. Both were reportedly at Mr. Romney’s press conference in Jacksonville, Florida on Wednesday, June 12th. Many in the media and throughout the nation can’t help wonder how qualified Mr. Romney is in dealing with global and national issues as Head of State, if he can so easily be manipulated by reporters into answers he later does not stand by.
“We’re discussing the media’s bias for President Obama this morning because there is proof now, this audio tapes reporters caught on an open mic repeating ‘gotcha questions’ for Governor Mitt Romney,” Gretchen Carlson of FOX and Friends said. “Here’s a snippet of that.”
When the audio is played, among the intelligible chatter, the FOX anchors contend that the then unidentified reporters were strategizing to slam Mr. Romney with the same questions.
“I would say, ‘Do you regret your question; I mean your statement,'” the unidentified reporter said. “Cause then you could go off on. We’re just talking about, no matter who he calls on, we’re covered on one question.”
