Hey, Paw! Git in here and read this stuff! It sez sump’n about how that Gingrich feller thinks Fox News ain’t really fair ‘n balanced after all.
D’ya figure maybe Newtie’s a commie or sump’n? I bet Glenn Beck would know fer sure.
Look! The story is HERE:
During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted FOX News Channel, accusing the cable network of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight. An employee himself of the news outlet as recently as last year, he also cited former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy.
“I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through,” Gingrich said during the private meeting — to which RealClearPolitics was granted access — at Wesley College. “In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than FOX this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of FOX, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of FOX. That’s just a fact.”
UPDATE: Wait a minute, Paw! HERE‘s another story! This one’s about how some geezers from around these parts is still givin’ Newtie their money cuz they still figger he can become prezdent:
[M]ost of Gingrich’s donors are from the South, older, and have been supporting his candidacy from the start. Gingrich’s strongest base of support in nearly every primary has been among those voters aged 65 or older. His support from senior citizens seems to be driven in part by memories of his time as Speaker of the House January 1995 to January 1999, and partly due to his promise to restore America’s bygone glories.
Those core supporters of the former speaker bridle at the suggestion — unsubtle from Romney’s camp, ubiquitous in the mainstream media — that Gingrich should and will soon drop out.
“Hell no,” said Oscar Nugent, 66, a financial planner from Slidell, La. who gave $2,175 to Gingrich, when asked if he should step aside. “Because he has an investment in the people — people like me and probably there were 100,000-plus others like me that thought enough of his ideas to send him some of our heard earned nondeductible money,” he added.
