Which is a very segment tonight the national media went into a frenzy this weekend after Mitt Romney announced Paul Ryan as running mate.
NBC news chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell said this about Ryan.
-- Not a -- that yes I've been my.
I joining us now from North Carolina and analyze Rivera Bernard Goldberg dot com mr.
So not pick for women yeah.
-- is that I say this is almost funny.
-- Paul Ryan says that are.
First let me say I think what she's really saying.
Is this is not a pick for liberal women who hi Andrea Mitchell hang out what I think I think that's the real point she's making.
But -- Paul Ryan says that our rights come from god not from government however you feel about that.
-- you think it come they come from god or from government however you feel about that how does she jumped to the conclusion.
That this is in a pick for women -- the younger women.
Will vote for Barack Obama we know that.
Married women married women with children older women.
Tend to vote Republican.
But something has happened to Andrea Mitchell along the way I think the MSNBC culture.
Has washed over she travels all over the world with Hillary Clinton.
But I think she ought to spend more time.
In that part of the country between Manhattan and Malibu.
And meet some women who -- like the one she hangs out with in Georgetown.
Well look I mean there's -- -- and I I'd agree with you ms.
Mitchell used to be a very hard news oriented journalist.
And there is no longer that and she says these things up the top I mean here's how ridiculous is this.
Paul Ryan says that our freedom comes from god.
Doesn't a declaration -- independence say that I believe it does so I'll give it the inalienable rights.
So Agnew quit playing without ever yeah I -- -- are we gonna settle this declaration on fire now what.
We haven't gotten my point is even if she is quibbling with that even.
Even if you believe our rights don't come from god that there is no god that they come from government.
How do you how do you go from that.
To that this -- -- a vote for women I don't get the connection.
And and I'll tell you what it is though.
When reporters hang they live in a bubble.
And and her bubble is in Georgetown.
And when you hang out with too many like minded people.
You make the mistake of thinking.
Everybody thinks that way and they don't.
That that's was good about me.
Because nobody wants to hang with me I don't have anybody that's a good point right that's -- you can't be infected.
By the points of view of my compatriots because I don't have it turns are.
Three presidential debates one vice presidential debate and the moderates have been name Jim Lehrer.
He's over it PBS Candy Crowley CNN chief or.
-- CBS he did a very soft interview with Romney and Ryan on sixty minutes last night.
And Martha Raddatz my -- colleague in Boston.
Will do the VP.
All of those people are very Smart -- know what you're doing as far as journalism is concerned you'd agree with that correct.
Yep right then I don't think -- like mr.
Schieffer for personal reasons and you can read about that.
In my novel those who trespass at the first time I've ever said that on the air by the way and I know and -- loved that book.
Grade this a great book and -- But here's what's wrong with this this no juice here you know it's the same old stuff.
That if they Candy Crowley asked -- a question and they don't choose to answered go off on any tension.
Candies are gonna do it I get hey listen you -- united sort of quest to get back in here yet he started -- -- and that's why these debates are almost obsolete.
I put your complaint was going to be along ideological lines -- Dallas and expect I wasn't expecting this.
Along ideological -- let me say.
That they're all gonna be on their best behavior -- there on the big stage the whole world is watching.
So I'm not.
I'm not gonna lose any sleep about that but you are right that this is sort of you know in a new age of media.
This is sort of a throw back this is sort of traditional.
Perhaps traditional to a fault.
I think we -- Ted Koppel latter -- semi retirement have him do that are you know I mean yeah we're we are now.
Bringing in people who will do a fine job of asking the questions.
But both Romney and Obama are -- to do the two step and they're gonna cancel what they want.
And then we ought to be say they're garner -- -- anyway I'm jealous Bernie.
I'm jealous that I didn't get invited that's why I'm I'm petty and that's why I'm saying what I'm saying you of course are none of those things and always good to see I am not jealous I'm not -- and I'm not sure -- What that says it was about the third time -- --
