"Mitt Romney is running for president as a Republican, but his recent media strategy includes granting exclusive interviews to news outlets that cater to a liberal audience...Itís a peculiar strategy for someone who has had trouble convincing conservatives throughout this race heís one of them. Unlike other candidates who can be more open at campaign stops, Romney will only answer questions from reporters during organized media availabilities."

He's slick. He's polished. He ain't conservative.

I don't see anything wrong with this, actually it's a good thing. Cain, Paul, Johnson, hell even Santorum recently have all been on MSNBC. It's good to see these candidates go to "the other side" to actually get the tough questions and not just the hand holding and back patting like at fox.

Another red flag. He didn't agree to go on any of the local conservative talk shows here in Des Moines. Granted, he had a falling out with one of the hosts in '08:

Romney on Mickelson - YouTube



...and is continually called out as not be conservative by another. But it does say something (you can decide what, exactly).

Note: the other local conservative talk show host is new to the market, so there is isn't any past bad blood or history there. Still a no-show there. ALL the other candidates (including Perry...who doesn't do a lot of these shows) have appeared.

ALL candidates appear on the same media outlets! Also, the right wing media has not been so great to Mitt Romney so why would he cater to them.

You need to get your position straight. You just started a thread last week that said Mitt Romney got more airtime on Fox News than any other candidate...which he did not except in a 2 week media blitz he did.

Now,does he get more airtime on fox or does he only appear on liberal news shows?

Why would he? The past record there in Iowa with such hosts was not helpful. That idiot Steve Deace has made it his mission to try to personally destroy him over the airwaves. He is a total bigot.
