Paul Ryan: 'As a Conservative, I've Long Believed & Long Felt There Is Inherent Media Bias

"Anybody with objectivity would believe that."


Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan sounded off on media bias, saying that as a conservative he has "long believed and long felt" it.

“I think it kinda goes without saying that there is definitely a media bias," Ryan told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." "I'm a conservative, Chris, I'm used to media bias. We expected media bias going into this."

But pressed for specific instances where he felt the Obama campaign had been held to a different standard, Ryan wouldn't give any examples, saying he wasn't going to go "tit for tat."

"As a conservative I’ve long believed and long felt there is inherent media bias," he said. "And I think anybody with objectivity would believe that that's the case today.”

Asked whether he believes the mainstream media wants Obama to win, Ryan initially demurred before Wallace pressed him for an answer.

"I think most people in the mainstream media are left of center and therefore they want a very left of center president versus a conservative present like Mitt Romney," he said.
