Posted on 11/01/2018 12:07:23 PM PDT by LiberalismDestroys
Mitt Romney cant "conceive of thinking or saying" the news media is an enemy as President Donald Trump continues to do, according to an essay he posted on his campaign website Thursday.
Romney wrote that someone asked him at a recent campaign event whether he would take action to shut down ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and the New York Times.
"When I responded of course not, and that, in fact, I would do everything in my power to preserve freedom of speech, the person persisted by arguing that these outlets purvey fake news," the Republican U.S. Senate candidate said.

Hey Mitt, reporting FAKE NEWS is the enemy of the people. Not reporting good news about the President in the enemy of the people.
Them’re magic suits doncha know
Media has been enemy of the people way before Donald Trump ran for or became President. Do they really want to pretend this is the first time it has ever been mentioned, because Rush Limbaugh built a good part of his career shaming liberal media, the drive-by.
We conservatives have had to sit back and take our medicine when our chosen candidate was lied about, innuendo placed jabs were routine, and exaggerated hyperbole ruled the news. George W. was pathetic when he routinely turned the other cheek with stories about Katrina, AbuGraib, Mission Accomplished, and so many more that it is hard to remember.
NOT any more and that is what the entitled liberal media is craven about, they cant do it now, because Trump will return fire.
Where was his spine when it mattered?
President Trump is only repeating what a large segment of citizens have been saying about the media for years. We are proud that President Trump is willing to verbally battle the leftist propaganda machine known as the media. We love that President Trump talks directly to us, we the people, rather then the old fashion way where the media got to interpret what a President was saying.
Thanks again, Mitt, for reminding me why I didn’t vote for your sorry butt in 2012.
Romney hurts LIBERTY and patriots. Vile and evil creature, that he is.
Since when does telling the truth hurt democracy? What a jackass.
The Mormon moron needs to drink a big cup of STFU!
Did it ever register with you that Trump won because so many of us got sick of GOPe girly men and wanted someone who would fight back?
The media is called the 4th branch of Democracy- its 90% democrat AND they don’t even try to be evenhanded.
If they’re going to act like partisan democrats they will be treated as such.
“Romney misquoting is what is really harmful.”
Listen to me plain an clear, because this was one on romneys main purposes.... ROMNEY WANTS TO KEEP TRUMP OFF MESSAGE. Some Republican other than Trump needs to stand up to RomneeeBully.
Can nothing save us from having to hear from this loser? Maybe we can spare just one seat rather than have this poison presence.
Romney is a jerk. Who needs him.
Loser says winner doing it wrong.
That’d be like getting a Vols fan’s “expert” opinion about football. :)
We can always count on Mitt to take the other side. I think he wants to be the new John McCain. Has he already forgotten how the media treated him in 2012?!
Say what you will about the rats, and maybe its easier because theyre so stupid, but they stick together and stay in message. Hey, Mittens... heres how you say it so youre not so much of an a-hole: The press is so persistently biases I understand how people, including the President, get really frustrated. Frankly, though, I dont think Id express my frustration in that way.
“Mitt Romney cant “conceive of thinking or saying” the news media is an enemy..”
That’s because you are an idiot Milton.
It’s a lock, he could get more than 70% like he did when running for president.
