We alienate Latinos – the fastest growing voter group in the country, because of our fetish on so-called amnesty....It's a fundamental rethink that begins with policy..." Moments later, he asserted:<strong> "...the biggest problem Mitt Romney had was the Republican primary. That's what's driving the Republican brand right now to a disaster."</strong></p> <p><a href="http://mrc.org/biasalerts/nbc-rino-demands-gop-abandon-conservative-principles-right-out-rush-limbaughs-dream-journ" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division Conservatives Meet the Press Mike Murphy NBC Rush Limbaugh Mon, 19 Nov 2012 16:18:22 +0000 kyle.drennen 41848 at http://mrc.org GOP Strategist Beats the Press: 'Media Assumes There's No Such Thing in the World as a Pro-Life Woman' http://mrc.org/biasalerts/gop-strategist-beats-press-media-assumes-theres-no-such-thing-world-pro-life-woman <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/kyle-drennen">Kyle Drennen</a> </div> </div> </div> <p> Appearing as a panelist on Sunday's NBC <em>Meet the Press</em>, Republican strategist Mike Murphy called out journalists for refusing to provide balanced coverage of abortion: <strong>"It's always amazed me how the media assumes there's no such thing in the world as a pro-life woman, it's the most under-represented, you know, group in the world, we never talk about them."</strong> [<em>Listen to <a href="http://newsbusters.org/sites/default/files/2012/2012-10-21-NBC-MTP-Abortion.mp3">the audio</a></em>]<br /> </p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/biasalerts/gop-strategist-beats-press-media-assumes-theres-no-such-thing-world-pro-life-woman" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division Abortion Campaign 2012 David Gregory Meet the Press Mike Murphy Mitt Romney NBC Mon, 22 Oct 2012 19:14:55 +0000 kyle.drennen 41594 at http://mrc.org On CBS, Norah O'Donnell Grills GOP Strategist; Takes Romney's Abortion Quote Out of Context http://mrc.org/biasalerts/cbs-norah-odonnell-grills-gop-strategist-takes-romneys-abortion-quote-out-context <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/matthew-balan">Matthew Balan</a> </div> </div> </div> <p> <img src="http://newsbusters.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/main_375/main_photos/2012/October/2012-10-10-CBS-CTM-ODonnell.jpg" style="float: right;" height="133" width="240" />Norah O'Donnell hounded Republican strategist Mike Murphy on Wednesday's <em>CBS This Morning</em>, repeatedly hinting that Mitt Romney flip-flopped on the issue of abortion during his Tuesday interview with <em>The Des Moines Register</em>.</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/biasalerts/cbs-norah-odonnell-grills-gop-strategist-takes-romneys-abortion-quote-out-context" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division Abortion Barack Obama cbs CBS This Morning Mike Murphy Mitt Romney NBC Norah O'Donnell Today Wed, 10 Oct 2012 20:02:44 +0000 matthew.balan 41479 at http://mrc.org NBC’s Gregory Frets Romney Missed ‘Sister Souljah Moment’ to Denounce Limbaugh; Noonan Blasts Limbaugh as ‘Piggish’ http://mrc.org/biasalerts/nbcs-gregory-frets-romney-missed-sister-souljah-moment-denounce-limbaugh-noonan-blasts-li <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/brent-baker">Brent Baker</a> </div> </div> </div> <p> <img src="http://newsbusters.org/sites/default/files/MTP-Gregory-2012-03-04-240.jpg" style="width: 240px; height: 181px; margin: 1px; float: right;" />No love on the Sunday morning television talk shows for Rush Limbaugh, not even a mild defense as the unifying theme was disappointment in Mitt Romney for not denouncing the leading national conservative talk radio host.</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/biasalerts/nbcs-gregory-frets-romney-missed-sister-souljah-moment-denounce-limbaugh-noonan-blasts-li" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division 2012 Presidential David Gregory Matthew Dowd Meet the Press Mike Murphy Peggy Noonan Rush Limbaugh This Week Video Mon, 05 Mar 2012 04:33:35 +0000 brent.baker 39321 at http://mrc.org
