Romney Downplays Danger Of Out Of Control Press

In a campaign blog post republished as a column by USA Today, Senator-elect Mitt Romney criticized President Trump for “vilifying” the press.

Interesting how we the common rabble often have to swear near-feudal oaths of fealty that our own remarks submitted as letters to the editor have not been published elsewhere before such content will even be considered.

Instead, Romney extols, Americans ought not look to the press as an enemy but rather as an essential component of democracy.

At times, the President has not only gone overboard in his attacks on the mainstream media but crossed over that boundary into the territory of scathing remarks of little bearing on the issue at hand directed at particular correspondents.

But neither should the danger of journalistic outlets claiming to report Joe Friday’s “nothing but the facts” spinning those in a way more befitting admitted opinion commentators to subtly advance an agenda or even parading outright fallacies for this purpose be downplayed.

In his own column, Romney (probably unwittingly) shows how this is possible without even realizing it.

Romney writes in gushing praise of establishment journalism, “it opened our eyes to the sexual abuse of children by priests”.

Interesting how he doesn’t even reference similar abuses at the hands of his own beloved Mormon Church that interjects itself into the lives of families creating barriers between parents and children that no members of any legitimate religion ought to put up with or allow.

Stupid Romneylans

Pot calling the kettle black.  Romney praised Trump in 2012.  In 2015 when Trump became the nominee Romney started bashing him.  This is anti-Trump phase, but he could flip at any time.
