He ignores the facts, spins the truth, and China-baits. Playing fast and loose with auto bailout details to secure votes in the waning days before Nov. 6, the Romney campaign is sounding a lot like the president.
But the Midwest’s partisan MSM is only reporting Romney’s distortions.
Michigan’s major media was virtually silent.
For example, The Detroit Free Press - which has routinely policed Romney on its front page for opposing the UAW bailout – ignored Obama’s distortions, Sam Donaldson (apparently a White House surrogate these days) repeated Obama’s lie on Detroit talk radio, and a MLive.com endorsement of Obama also falsely accused Romney of wanting the industry to disappear.
“One of the great manufacturers of this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China,” slimed Romney. Not true, barked the Freep watchdog: “Not only was the story wrong, Romney took criticism for not knowing better and repeating it without questioning it.” True enough – but then the Freep went on to repeat Obama’s lie that Romney’s 2008 NYTimes edit advocated that Detroit automakers should go out of business
The only thing more embarrassing than the two campaigns is an MSM shilling for the incumbent.
