Yesterday while Mitt Romney was visiting the Polish Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, reporters from the NY times , CNN and the Washington Post started yelling questions at him from behind the rope. They attempted to humiliate Mr. Romney , by asking him questions about what they consider embarrassing comments he has made while in London.

rope nbspthey attempted humiliate romney questions embarrassing comments london nbsp

Mr. Romney's aide responded in a harsh manner and told the reporters to "Kiss my A--" and to "Shove it". Later, the Romney aide, Rick Gorka, called the reporters and apologized for his inappropriate comments. An apology from the reporters for harassing Mr. Romney at a sacred site for the polish, was not forthcoming. Any surprise there? shame

    We should build a huge gladiator style colloseum in Atlanta, Georgia next to the CNN building, then make all the journalists from Fox News and CNN duke it out for our enjoyment. I don't know about you guys, but I'm putting all my money with Wolf Blitzer. Go get 'em, Wolf!

    It is true journalists get into one's face, but I realize often they are correct to do so. It is their job to get answers.

    They should apologize but they won't. Reporters are a pathetic lot with no morals or common sense all their concerned with is getting the scoop. So for them to actually show restraint in a place like the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is highly unlikely.
    Its no different than when Princess Diana died in the car crash the reporters were around the car trying to get the most gruesome shots possible. That spoke volumes on the state of so called journalism.

    I have to agree with the top opinion. It does not matter what party you support, there are very few Journalists who are worth the respect I would give a rattlesnake. Those whom I would respect, generally are honest, trustworthy, and practice journalism as it was meant to be practiced. They should be doing what the Freedom of the Press was given them to do. Be the so called fourth branch of government, and reporting on the governments performance, not being the cheer leaders.

    What would you do if we did not have journalists to expose corruption.? Often they have to get into faces to get answers. Would you still complain if this was done to President Obama.? You say party does not matter, but you never defend President Obama when he gets slammed.

    They got all the respect they deserved from Romney (given that they're always kissing Vidkun 0bama's backend) and don't deserve even to be termed "journalists" (they can't hold a candle to real journalists like Jack Anderson or Anthony Mascarenhas).

    I wasn't aware that we disagreed on anything Kaelynn. You seem nice enough on the surface but it just comes off as insincere.

    I just realized that you created this post so I guess in this case, you going off topic could be construed as being less trollish...

    Face it, the reporters have no 'class.' Plus Romney is a Republican and in their eyes can be attacked regardless of where he is. The question is: Would they have done the same thing to Obama?

    If I were Romney I wouldn't accept anything from them but when he gets elected then he can do with them as he pleases.

    On one hand, they ignore obie and biden repeatedly sticking their feet in their mouths, on the other, they continually MAKE an issue where there is none with Romney,.

    They are always looking out for their pet.

    Back in the days when reporter were reporters, this behavoir would not have been accepted by their bosses. They are lose cannons and are more interested in sensational headlines then real reporting on stories that are important. They look for anything that someone says that they can sensationlize at that is poor reporting. It's too bad that they influence so many of us and our bad for letting them. My father would be rolling in his grave if he saw what many journalist have turned into. They don't need to apologize, the people who hired them and pay their salaries should apologize for letting them get away with this. When they were going to school to become reporters, did they not cover Yellow Journalism?

    Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines ...

    Just another opportunity to take a shot at the Obama challenger.

    Honestly? I think the Media would hang out in toilets for a chance to embarass any Obama challenger on the pot.
