Mitt Romney Calls Out Fourth Estate

Some in the media want to talk about anything but the economy, he says as he responds to the coverage of his overseas trip


Mitt Romney, in an interview with Fox News, accused the media of attempting to "divert" attention from more substantive issues by harping on his so-called gaffes overseas.

"I realize that there will be some that in the fourth estate … who are far more interested in finding something to write about that is unrelated to the economy, to geo-politics, to the threat of war, to the reality of conflict in Afghanistan today, to nuclearization of Iran," Romney told Fox News' Carl Cameron, after wrapping up his final event in Warsaw, Poland.
