When republicans start whining about media bias, it’s a bad indication! It mostly means they are losing and probably losing severely.
Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan told host ‘Chris Wallace’ on this weekend’s broadcast of ‘Fox News Sunday’ that he and his running mate Mitt Romney predicted liberal media bias to influence their campaign from the first day.
“It goes without saying that there is definitely media bias,” said Mr. Ryan. He said that he believed that most people in the news media were left of center and pro-Obama; which signifies the fact that he and his running mate, Mitt Romney, needed to take their message to the people, directly!
He further added, “Look, I’m a conservative, Chris. I’m used to media bias. We expected media bias going into this. That’s why we’re trying to cut through and go straight to people. That’s why when in Washington you hear people complain about media bias, come out into these states with us and attend our town hall meetings.”
Take a look at Paul Ryan saying that media is biased and wants Obama to win:
Mr. Ryan denied saying exactly where he saw such bias.
“I’m not going into a tit-for-tat or litigate this thing,” Ryan said. “But as a conservative, I’ve long believed, long felt that there is inherent media bias, and I think anybody with objectivity would believe that is the case.”
At the same time, he accepted that the Republican campaign has had its errors, including what he described as Mr. Romney’s “inarticulate” comments about people who pay no taxes and obtain government help.
“We’ve had some missteps,” he said, “but at the end of the day the choice is really clear.”
“I’ll let you decide what people want, what’s in their hearts, what’s in their minds. We’re offering conservative reforms that are proven ideas to grow the economy. We want to reapply our nation’s founding principles to fix those problems. I would argue our president is replacing our founding principles.”

Romney camp constantly switching messages and contradicting itself. Too late in the game for mistakes like this. politi.co/V2ls6p— Stuart Johnson (@stujo11) September 30, 2012
You tell me. Why is Paul Ryan still doing media bias when the Romney campaign said stop? politi.co/V2ls6p— Jay Rosen(@jayrosen_nyu) September 30, 2012
