Romney Slams Media for Gaffe Coverage

Mitt Romney is back from his over seas trip and not pleased with the media. He told Fox News Tuesday it was the press' fault if he came off poorly while visiting leaders abroad, not his. When asked about his gaffes, Romney said, "And I realize there will be some in the Fourth Estate, or whichever estate, who are far more interested in finding something to write about that is unrelated to the economy, to geopolitics, to the threat of war, to the reality of conflict in Afghanistan today, to a nuclearization of Iran. Instead they'll try and find anything else to divert from the fact that these last four years have been tough years for our country."
