Woah!… Newt Gingrich Compares Media Elites to Polish Communists– Compares MSM to Pravda (Video)

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich went off on the American media’s biased and dishonest coverage of popular Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight.

Newt compared the outrageous Palin coverage to the reports written about freedom fighter Lech Walesa by the Polish communists. Newt condemned the media’s intellectually dishonest ambush on Governor Sarah Palin and compared today’s mainstream media reporting to propaganda pushed by Pravda.
Woah.

Here is Newt Gingrich discussing the media with Greta Van Susteren tonight:

Here is Newt Gingrich:

The elite media’s attack on Governor Palin again and again has been factually wrong, intellectually dishonest, totally biased, worthy of the Polish State news media attacking Lech Walesa back in the 1980’s. I mean this is the type of deliberate, vicious, dishonest, total distortion of who Governor Palin is including by the way, the Saturday Night Live Skit some of which by the way, I think were slander and were worthy of a lawsuit.

And, I think the American people should realize that the elite media on the Left is so desperate to elect Barack Obama that the view they are giving you of Governor Palin is fundamentally a falsehood. And, the one you saw from CNN is so outrageous that they owe her an absolute apology. But frankly, Katie Couric misquoted Henry Kissinger, earlier than that, ABC News misquoted the Bush Doctrine. Again and again you’ve seen elite reporters do things that were false in order to try to make Governor Palin look bad…

If you would look at the coverage Michelle Obama has gotten and the coverage that Cindy McCain has gotten you have to believe that the fix is in. When you look at the magazine covers, the pictures that were taken, again and again, over and over for the last year we have been brainwashed, propagandized, insultingly lectured by the news media. If you look what happened to Joe the Plumber… Now, I haven’t seen anyone from the elite media do a live broadcast from the non-existent Katie’s Restaurant to point out that Joe Biden is just out of touch with reality. He’s either dishonest or has a total memory lapse about his hometown. Yet, nobody notices it. Again and again there were 14 factual mistakes by Biden in the vice-presidential debate. Nobody said that disqualified him. This has been a totally one-sided campaign where the news media has been the best ally that Barack Obama has gotten. And we ought to be honest about it. There’s no pretense, not a shred of neutrality on the part of the major networks or The New York Times

I’ve been thinking about having one of my researchers look at every single elite media interview of Governor Palin to see if any of them asked her how she gave $1300 a person back to Alaskans as a tax break, how she negotiated and got so much money out of Big Oil, how she worked out the deal for the natural gas pipeline, or anything of substance about how she shaped an $11 billion budget involving 29,000 employees of the state government.

I don’t believe by the best of my knowledge that there has been a single question by an elite television journalist about her actual career in Alaska.

And, I think it is the most insulting. I can’t say this too strongly. This is like watching Pravda.

This is a one-sided vicious unending dishonest campaign.

Great points!
Especially… On what the media has not asked the America’s most popular governor.
Pravda ought to feel insulted.

UPDATE: The Pravda-media continued to hammer away at America’s most popular governor today for the clothes she is wearing(?)

UPDATE: Michael Graham has more on the angry Palin mob, via Instapundit.
