A research analyst says the response to Mitt Romney's comments
about 47 percent of the population being dependent on government is
further proof of the mainstream media's desire to attack the GOP
Tim Graham, director of
media analysis for the Media Research Center (MRC), says the media has
been caught red-handed in its orchestrated plan to pile up on
Romney, as it has all but declared Barack Obama the winner of the
2012 Presidential election.
From CNN's Brooke Baldwin hyping the "tsunami" of Romney
campaign problems, to Reuters indicating the Romney camp is
"reeling" because of a "gaffe-plagued" campaign, Graham tells
OneNewsNow the media continues to create the illusion that Romney's
campaign is doomed.
"There has been an enormous rush of coverage that
this secret tape of Romney means the election's over; [media
say] it's a crushing blow; it's a seismic event; it's an
earthquake," the analyst observes. "These are the people who are
always trying to fulfill their own prophecies."
The latest Gallup tracking polls, however, communicate a
far different story: The presidential race is a virtual dead heat,
with Obama holding on to only a one-percent lead over Romney.
Graham believes these numbers have the mainstream media
"This sort of spin dampens enthusiasm; it dampens fundraising.
That's exactly what they want to do," he asserts. "They want to use
their news media coverage to get Obama reelected, and it seems to
me that if you've watched the news media since the conventions,
they're extremely explicit in campaigning for Obama at this
Out of nearly 45,000 respondents, a CNBC
poll earlier this week found that 76 percent of respondents
agree with Romney's statement.
