Is dot com line what time for today's -- -- Fox News contributor Rich Lowry joins us now and you can follow rich on Twitter at rich Lowery so rich welcome and so what are you look at aspect.
I have wrote a column for -- today about.
And I really think the media got totally obsessed with the notion that this.
Triple is gaffe ridden and went out of their way to define it outside she obviously had.
A big hiccup in London where he named a comment about maybe they were so prepared for the Olympics should go over very well.
But the rest of the so called gas were ridiculous and manufactured it and my view this comment about how culture.
Plays -- -- -- economic performance is.
Not a gaffe I need and today I didn't argue about it -- it would have been nice in the press actually did that instead they go to Palestinian official calls that racist and eighteen minute gap.
And then he had this incidence.
-- near -- to tomb of the unknown soldier and Poland.
Where -- these reporters shouted out these ridiculous questions you know Heidi feel.
Governor Romney about how -- your trip it's been about gaps.
And he had a Romney a -- and it is -- it.
And out came a huge issue that -- Obsessed with four obsessed over for twelve to eighteen hours so I thought this is it was sort of pack mentality.
Biased journalism at its very worst.
And then went real -- -- this is thinking we we know the incidents happened is it warned that Romney doesn't go with the flow -- he's not a guy that can you know you know we've been.
You know punch or whatever they call that in -- boxing terms is that really the issue here.
I don't think so I mean it wasn't really done -- weren't exchanges the governor had with reporters in fact the print reporters were very upset because they only got to ask 33 questions the whole trip.
So wasn't Romney you know not going -- flow -- messing up any negative interviews -- -- -- reporters -- this -- print reporter is being obsessed with a narrative that -- -- started the beginning of the week and they -- devoted to defining everything.
Within the prism.
That narrative and -- they they complain about lack of access and they had a point.
But in terms of access to the media in general it was just fine and -- -- -- -- interviews with.
Brian Williams Matt -- someone from ABC Jan Crawford CDS to folks with us fox two with CNN.
And Wolf Blitzer in piers Morgan so there's plenty of media access to just wasn't -- access and that was all the reasons print reporters went out of their way.
Right -- the trip as though is a disaster.
Okay and what else is on your and you're on your -- today.
Well that's that's the that's the main -- so if you look at permitted to bash the media over something else there's nothing yet -- must -- -- and is.
I'll let you know you're -- I know -- you're probably thinking about it at the chick filet.
The chick -- conflict that really has been on the front burner for a lot of media today of how do you think in its handling that.
I can't say -- all the coverage extremely closely from and media perspective I think it is an example of where the cultural wars.
Are going in I fear it -- it it will become increasingly.
It's difficult for for people to say in the public's fear that they oppose.
Gay marriage where you had you know.
And Chicago and Boston and now in and New York.
Saying that they all will go either way to discriminate against this firm based on the views.
Of the person who runs it was is just outrageous we can argue about his views you know I have to agree with them you can boycott you know not -- eat is chicken salad is because it is he is -- -- within your rights that's an exercise of freedom.
But this is the very opposite.
Of an exercise of freedom using government power and -- to crack down someone.
