On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said Mitt Romney’s campaign has not fought back hard enough against media bias.
“The other night on ‘Special Report,’ the day after the administration’s witness said on Capitol Hill that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, Bret Baier held up a copy of The New York Times to note that The New York Times had not mentioned it anywhere in the paper,” Hume said. “Remarkable.”
“Now, look, this is how it’s going to be for a Republican in this stage of a general election campaign. The media is not going to help the Republican, broadly speaking. … A smart Republican candidate recognizes that, plans for that and thinks of ways to counteract it. They’ve done it in the past. It’s not at all clear to me that the Romney campaign is doing that.”
Hume said a strategy of media pushback might be one of Romney’s keys to victory.
“It could [help], if the issue were developed and responded as Bill [Kristol] suggested,” Hume added. “I don’t think that’s happened.”
