On today’s program I had a conversation with Mark Steyn about Rick Perry’s comments on the MSM from yesterday’s program. The transcript is here.
I followed that interview with a longer one with The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza on the same set of comments and on the posting by the New York Times’ “Public Editor” on whether MSM should be critiquing various claims made by public figures, citing two examples –one from the Supreme Court concerning Clarence Thomas and one concerning Mitt Romney.
That transcript is posted here.
My question: When Mitt Romney is asked about his claim to have created 100,000 jobs net/net, is it subjected to more, the same, or less scrutiny than President Obama’s oft-repeated assertion to have “saved or created” 3 million jobs?
