Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina in stunning fashion on Saturday because he stands up to the liberal media and “because conservatives are just as fed up as he is,” says Brent Bozell, founder and president of the Media Research Center.
“Speaker Gingrich hit a nerve dead-on by pushing back on ABC's blatant character assassination and standing up to John King's first debate question,” Bozell wrote on his NewsBusters blog today
, referring to ABC News’ interview with his ex-wife and CNN’s John King’s raising the issue to start the Republican presidential debate Thursday night.
Gingrich “tapped into the anger and frustration of not only South Carolina voters, but of the rest of the country. The left-wing media have tried to manipulate this campaign cycle through the systematic character assassination of every conservative in the race. The public has had it.
“By the same token, they've watched the same leftists in the so-called 'news' media cheerlead a radical community organizer to victory and are sick and tired of the free passes they continually grant to The Chosen One, who has wreaked havoc on our country,” Bozell wrote.
