I Am Happy to Blame the Media: Ann Romney Says Mitt Was Not Given a Fair Shake

Ann Romney said the media didn’t give Mitt “a fair shake” and that she’s happy to blame them for her husband’s loss to President Barack Obama.

“He was not being given a fair shake. People weren’t allowed to see him for who he really was,” she said in a joint interview with the former Republican presidential nominee — their first since the election — aired Sunday on Fox News.

Asked whether she blames the media, Ann Romney replied, “I am happy to blame the media.” Asked if she believes they were “in the tank” for Obama, she laughed.

“I think that any time you are running for office you always think that you are being portrayed unfairly, and, you know, we — of course, on our side believe there is more bias in favor of the other side. I think that, you know, that’s a pretty universal — universally felt opinion,” Ann Romney said.
