And other media cover the 2012 primary campaign you cannot -- some of what you -- Well I I'm kind of amazed by the new pew poll that says in fact.
That even though.
We all know -- that most reporters tend to be liberal and most reporters according to surveys tend to be Democrats.
That president Obama's covering -- between January and April.
Was fairly negative in fact it was more negative than positive from the media.
And that -- governor Romney is coverage was more positive than it was negative.
And also even though he's been complaining lately and taking some jabs at the press.
Have the -- pew poll and survey showed that.
The other candidates received much less kind treatment to then governor Romney dead.
And it right after it never that close squeak that he had when he -- he won the election in his own state and Michigan.
According to the few people right after that immediate kind of decided.
That governor Romney was the inevitable candidate.
As results of that the amount of time they spent on him.
And his personality and his campaign tactics and issues.
Went up by more than twelve -- so you really had a kind of explosion in interest in the man.
As of that moment I just find this pew survey really interesting and quite surprising I did not expect.
This period that you have some thoughts.
I agree I think because Wisconsin was still supposed to be a place within apple might have been able to stop the run -- you're right you've met with consulate in the time for that to happen.
Which actually I don't all of a sudden there was one candidate at -- you hit a good fight like crazy and it's you know it's just that Romney.
And in other so so marginalized that.
People want to support a loser right so when the media almost -- -- Romney.
And he has the money in here ready spending his own money.
The other candidates needed -- media for you of their campaigns because they didn't have the cars themselves real quickly from someone who's run -- campaign and run successfully hearing.
-- represented us live in Jersey.
But I looked across and you -- doing a great job of.
Out of windows saying yeah.
There isn't -- -- I got a little bit and.
Now this really talk about what you -- I think there -- two things at work here and -- you can disagree with anything that they're not.
But I if I think why is that there's a desire on the media's part to get to know Romney and in doing that they cover him.
And they cover him by asking the questions that -- their questions is they're writing.
So and the I think the other thing is that there's throwing him a bunch of soft balls it's because they think he might be president and they want to could have access.
-- you answered it didn't.
It's like on Saturday afternoon as the -- got it 2:30 PM re air at 11:30 PM.
-- this -- the night -- out there.
-- want that includes -- complex that's for care take so much for me to take a quick break we'll be right back.
