Mitt Romney on Tuesday channeled his inner Hillary Clinton by calling the media a "vast left-wing conspiracy."
During an interview with Breitbart TV's Larry O'Connor, the Republican presidential candidate also said, "Many in the media are inclined to do the president's bidding and I know that's a battle, an uphill battle we fight with the media generally" (video follows with partial transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):
MITT ROMNEY: There will be an effort by the quote vast left-wing conspiracy to work together to put out their message and to attack me. They're going to do everything they can to divert from the message people care about, which is a growing economy that creates more jobs and rising incomes. That's what people care about
And the Democrats know that given the president's record over the last three and a half years they cannot run on that record, and therefore they will try and make this race about anything but the president's record and the economy. […]
Many in the media are inclined to do the president's bidding and I know that's a battle, an uphill battle we fight with the media generally. But fortunately there are some other voices like yours which have in many cases a lot more credibility. And when it came for assistance to the ObamaCare fight, you guys have won the fight.
