Newt Gingrich vs. The Media
Gingrich doubles down on his attack of the mainstream media.
Newt Gingrich continued his assault on the news media Thursday night, drumming up support at the Republican Leadership Conference by laying into a national media that has written some tough stories about his campaign in recent weeks.
Gingrich began the assault late Wednesday, telling Fox News that stories written about his business practices and his wife Callista’s role in his campaign staff shake-up were off-base and unfair.
On Thursday, Gingrich repeatedly demeaned the media as he laid out his platform for running for president.

* “This is going to shock the news media; it’s going to be longer than nine seconds long.”
