Paul Ryan talked to Chris Wallace on Fox News today to start floating excuses in case Romney and he lose in November. Specifically, it’s the liberal media’s fault, because the media is liberal. Via the unabashedly-liberal blog PoliticusUSA:
WALLACE: But where have you seen it? Where have you seen it in this campaign where you feel they’re judging you and Romney by one standard and Obama and Biden by another?
RYAN: I don’t think — I’m not going to go into a tit-for-tat or litigate this thing. But as a conservative, I’ve long believed and long felt that there is inherit media bias. And I think anybody with objectivity would believe that that’s the case.
Shorter version: Paul Ryan believes the media have a liberal bias, and if you disagree, then you must have a liberal bias too, hippie.
(Note that I try to use “media” as a plural whenever I can, because that’s what they are.)
Since people never know anything except what their television spoon-feeds them, of course liberally-biased media would tip them to the Democrats, and that’s why Republicans never win elections!
Is that an unfair way to characterize Ryan’s words? I think not, but you’re welcome to try to prove otherwise.
Also, he said “tit.” Heh heh.
