This morning MSNBC's Chuck Todd let it be known that it's TOTALLY uncalled for for Mitt Romney to go over there to London, get cozy with THE BRITS AND COMPLETELY IGNORE THE AMERICAN PRESS!
In his daily "First Thoughts" round up, Todd wrote:
During his meeting with Miliband, according to the pool report, Romney answered questions from British reporters but did not take any questions from the American reporters, which isn’t protocol. In fact, it’s considered a bit of an insult to the U.S reporters who are following the presumptive GOP presidential nominee overseas. ... [T]hose of us that have traveled overseas and been involved in these VERY limited press avails have rarely seen heads of democracies TOTALLY ignore their own press corps but answer ANOTHER press corps’ questions. Sure, it would have looked REALLY bad had Romney ignored the U.K. questions. But is the campaign so intent on limiting media access that the candidate won’t call an audible when standing next to a leader from another country who DOES want to take questions?
See how Todd uses the caps-lock button to really drive home his anger?
