The latest move in Team Romney's shift in focus toward conservative red meat came Monday when an unnamed Romney adviser told the National Review that the D.C. media wants Mitt Romney to lose so it can make more money.
Sometimes I think there’s a conscious effort between the media and Chicago to get Republicans depressed. And I hope our friends realize that all these media analysts out there are Democrats WHO WANT US TO LOSE. And the more Washington DC controls our economy, the more important inside-the-beltway publications are and the more money they make. The 202 area code is dominated by people who will make more money if Obama is reelected, so it’s not just an ideological thumb they’re putting on the scale for him, it’s a business interest.
