Newt Gingrich, speaking Wednesday at a Maryland Republican Party dinner in Baltimore, accused the media of being in bed with President Barack Obama as they focus solely on the 2012 presidential contender’s campaign challenges rather than his “substance,” reports The Daily Caller
His audience cheered when Gingrich said the media are “trying to protect Barack Obama.”
The candidate confirmed he would still be in the race during the Iowa caucuses, and tackled the issue of recent defections from his campaign staff.
“This was always a misnomer,” he said. “Of all the people who were with me before the campaign started, only one left. The people who decided they didn’t like what we were doing were professional consultants who were outsiders who didn’t understand my style.”
