WASHINGTON (AP) — Newt Gingrich is embracing Republican presidential campaign rival Herman Cain's criticism of the news media in connection with the sexual harassment allegations against Cain.

Gingrich tells NBC's "Today" show that news organizations care more about scandal than ordinary citizens struggling to make ends meet.

The former House speaker says voters want a "solution-oriented leader" more than a scandal. He says it's up to Cain to handle in the way he sees fit. But Gingrich says there's a gap between the "gossip" he believes journalists pursue, and more deep-seated problems like economic stagnation.

Gingrich says, "What does it mean to the elite news media that nobody in the country ever walks up to us and raises the questions you raise." He questions the media's "judgment" on what stories should be emphasized.
