Bozell on Hannity 'Media Mash': Gingrich Claim Was Not Newsworthy

"There was nothing newsworthy" about Marianne Gingrich's latest claims about the dissolution of her marriage to Newt Gingrich, NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell told Fox News host Sean Hannity on his January 20 program.

"We looked at the September 2010 Esquire story on the marriage" and found "there's nothing, let me underscore, nothing in the story last night that wasn't in that interview," Bozell noted during the "Media Mash" segment [MP3 audio here; videofollows page break]

Also discussed on Friday's "Media Mash" segment was how the media have attempted to contort Gingrich's "food stamp president" critique into a cynical use of the "race card," the media's faulty attack line on Romney's tax rate, and Newsweek hitting Obama's conservative critics as "dumb."
