Mitt Romney Lies #22 – ‘Romney Advisers Reveal Strategy: Ignore Journalists, Pander To Right-Wing Conspriacy Websites’
Misinformation. Disinformation. Lies. Hiding from Questions.
This IS the Mitt Romney campaign.
And so far, mostly unchallenged by the media.
Why this isn’t the lead story everyday in print and broadcast media is cause for the greatest concern.
The ‘free press’ has failed because it has become dependent on profits. But Mitt Romney is seeking to be the President of the United States and WON’T answer questions unless they are from controlled and friendly media.
Silence is acceptence.
And the media is incredibily silent on demanding answers from Mitt Romney.
‘From the beginning of the campaign, Romney has pointedly avoided news outlets who might pose tough questions. The press dubbed it “the Mittness Protection Program.”
And no it’s not a ‘center-right’ media. It’s controled, extreme (sensational reporting raises viewership and profits) conservative media.
Truth is all too often dull. Conspiracy theories aren’t.
‘As the campaign wore on, Romney has refused to answer direct questions about major policy issues central to the campaign. For example, Romney has still not stated whether he would undo Obama’s order ending deportations for many young undocumented immigrants’.
‘Romney campaign spokesman Lenny Alcivar recently outlined how the campaign will avoid journalists and cooridnate and communicate their message through Brietbart.com and the Drudge Report ( And I woyuld add FOX, MewsMax and CBN):
“When this election is over, one of the lessons that will be learned by the mainstream media is that they no longer have a toe-hold on how Americans receive their news. Never before – in a way that has taken Democrats off stride – have we seen the confluence of an aggressive online community, led by Breitbart, and an aggressive campaign team not willing to cede an inch of ground to Democrats. This combination has created a new political reality. We no longer allow the mainstream media to define the political realities in America. The rise of Breitbart, Drudge and others, combined with an aggressive Romney campaign is a powerful tool in the arsenal of the conservative movement”.
…”The governor will no longer allow the mainstream media to dictate the terms of this debate. This is just the beginning… We are witnessing the rise of the center right media”.

Newsmax? Drudge? FOX? CNN?
None of those are credible ‘news’ outlets.
‘Newsmax asked Romney a series of questions that will be featured in its September Newsmax magazine cover story, including his take on the key media outlets he turns to for news: “You know, increasingly, I’m getting news from electronic sources, whether Newsmax, Drudge, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal Online, even USA Today online, Fox online, CNN online.”
