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.

Utah has gone PFFFT on America. RINO ROMNEY defines why Rs have lost half of Americans to MARX. No give-a-damn in sight, but for power godding themselves.
He’s right. We do not have a free and independent media. The entire spectrum of media is out and out leftist propaganda. The news media is owned by the democrats.
Who do they think they are kidding?
Listen to what Pelosi has to say about the media...this is why they ARE the enemy of the people.
Throwing the election to socialist dictator Obama in the aftermath of the Benghazi fiasco hurts the democracy too.
This fraction of a man is disgusting. Blechhhhh!!!
If he had been elected we’d be in a Hillary presidency right now. So he did us a big favor by being an outrageously weak excuse for a republican
The media seeks to keep us divided. They are our enemies regardless of what the 2 time loser Mitt Romney has to say.
That’s funny, Mitt, you were all “palsy walsy” with Trump when he was giving you money and his endorsement for your campaign in 2012.
But you lost.
Then when Trump came in and was close to winning the nomination, in March 2016, you did a total 180 and made a big speech saying Trump was a crook, charlatan, con man, etc.
Mitt if you want to know who the actual con man is, look in the mirror.
You jealous POS.
I can’t believe I voted for Loser Romney.
Why not just come out and say you are a Democrat Mitt?
Mittens will be just like McShame rising from the dead!!!
Telling the truth never hurts good people. The fact that today’s news media are shockingly dishonest and biased enemies of everything decent is what hurts democracy and freedom.
Mittens, friend of Romney, enemy of the Republic. Disgusting loser lusting for power is all Mitt Romney is.
Phuck you, Mittens!
He was very comfortable with the direction of the country under Obama.
Unlike Obama, Romney would just rather see the decline and ultimate demise of the United States happen at a bit slower pace and not on his watch
Well, just how would Romney explain the way the media has treated the President? They are obviously no friends of patriotic Americans.
That’s why Romney is the water-boy on the sidelines and Trump is President.
He acts like Nellie Oleson from Little House on the Prairie. What a twerp he is.
Knew there’d be somebody
Consider the perspective from the rest of the country
And for the decade I lived there, it seemed like the entire universe to me too
Perception is reality for each person
He is the most bogus, worthless turd, just getting started for being the new McCain/Flake. I think he and Elsie the Cow were in cahoots to throw that foreign policy debate to Obama. And I remember a bunch of idiot freepers saying how smart he was not to talk about Benghazi.
We just planted McCain and now we have his butt buddy.
