Newt Gingrich: The Media ‘Would Rather Worry About Rumors About Conservatives Than Facts About President’ (Video)

Conservative radio host, blogger, CNN contributor, Dana Loesch had Newt Gingrich on yesterday to discuss his campaign for president. During the conversation Dana asked Newt if he had heard that the Washington Post was asking the public for hits on the former House Speaker. Newt said he wasn’t aware of this and added:

“The news media’s never quite found itself as excited about the facts about Barack Obama. Would rather worry about rumors about conservatives than facts about the President.”

Spoken like a true patriot.

NewsBusters reported, via Lucianne:

DANA LOESCH: I’ve noticed that Aaron Blake who writes for the Washington Post’s The Fix, it’s a political blog, has reached out to readers asking them to crowd-source your past to see if they can get some skeletons in your closet. Have you heard of this?

NEWT GINGRICH: I haven’t heard of it. I’m not at all surprised. I think that you have to expect that kind of trash. I’ve been honest about the fact that there are things I did in my past that I’ve had to go to G-d and seek forgiveness for and seek reconciliation…

GINGRICH: I wish they would crowd-source to discover what he did at Columbia University, and I wish they would crowd-source to figure out what he did with Saul Alinsky’s ideas on the South Side of Chicago.

LOESCH: Exactly.

GINGRICH: Nobody’s ever explored exactly, the community organizer did not mean boys and girls clubs. It meant Saul Alinsky radicalism.

LOESCH: Yeah, it absolutely did.

GINGRICH: But the news media’s never quite found itself as excited about the facts about Barack Obama. Would rather worry about rumors about conservatives than facts about the President.
