Gingrich: MSNBC Is ‘Obama Re-election Team’

Friday, 18 Nov 2011 10:23 AM

Asked Thursday at a Jacksonville, Fla., rally how he intends to deal with alleged anti-GOP media bias, current Republican presidential front-runner Newt Gingrich called MSNBC the “Obama re-election team,” reports Mediaite

The former House speaker also delivered a measured assessment of both ends of the media spectrum, and suggested that he gets a warmer reception on Fox News than does President Barack Obama.

Gingrich said that while the liberal media refused to look into rumors surrounding controversial Obama associates like William Ayers during the president’s 2008 campaign, now “they’re actually doing for [GOP candidates] what they wouldn’t do for Obama. They’re doing it partly out of bias.”

The candidate acknowledged he will soon face greater press scrutiny into his private and professional affairs, and said he’s ready for it.
“In the next three weeks, I predict to you we’ll have all sorts of questions about me,” said Gingrich. “And it’s fine. You cannot ask the people of the United States to loan you the most powerful governmental job in the world, particularly on a campaign that is promising very dramatic change, and not have them vet you carefully and thoroughly.”
