Media Bias Revealed in Astonishing Romney Photo

It was a news photo that, as Gawker quipped, was “ripe for captioning.”

A pic of Mitt Romney bending over, while a seemingly astonished schoolgirl stands behind him, mouth agape.

The photograph, posted Monday by The Associated Press for all to see, has since surged across the Internet. The candidate riding a wave of confidence from last week’s debate performance was suddenly made, pardon, the butt of jokes.

So was it a cheap shot? Tim Graham, media analysis director at the Media Research Center, said absolutely.

“It’s unbelievable,” he wrote. “It honestly looks like a little girl is gaping at Romney from behind.”

A closer look appears to show the girl looking at something else to the right of Romney.

    The media becomes sicker each day. How much lower can they become?Hopefully these scumbags will go out of business.

  • Jim

    I think the schoolgirl and her parents need to sue for defamation of character.

      You got it right Jim! AP exploiting an innocent child for political reasons!!

  • Dan Williams

    They continue to put their bias on display for all to see. I believe most thinking Americans have woken up to this. Anyone checked the ratings and subscription rates lately? And they do this fully aware of the success of Fox News and conservative radio….They’re not stupid, just committed to deception.

  • The media lie’s on every topic. Our family along with so many have just stoped watching them. They’re pathitic.

  • Samurai_Sam

    Aw! Let the left wing brain dead media have their fun for a few more months. With any luck the picnic that they have been gorging themselves on will soon be over, not that they won’t switch their focus to condemning everything that Romney does but that is to be expected these days.

    Let them keep promoting their ignorance and bias eventually even the lemmings will get the idea that the parade is headed for the cliff and the media will self destruct.

    It looks like it could be photoshopped. I say this because Romney is the most particular man I’ve ever seen in the way he dresses, and doesn’t wear pants that would split, etc. Someone could have even told her something she didn’t know and that photo was snapped just when she was remarking on some new secret. The media ought to be smacked in the head!

  • JOSE

    HERE WE GO AGAIN AMERICA “THE LESSOR OF THE TWO EVILS”, BUT UNFORTUNATELY IT’S STILL “EVIL”

  • No matter what Romney does, BO will win. Could it be because our votes will be counted in Spain! Yes, I said Spain. Bo is not even trying. When he makes a speech it has nothing to do with what people are concerned about or is it in any way connected with acting or being a president.

    • Douglas W. Rodrigues

      “Acting” more accurately describes Obama’s functioning as president (small p).

    Just goes to show you how Low and Nasty the left wing Media really is.This LIL Girl can’t be any older than 12 Years Old. How would you like it if this was your little Daughter. Betcha if this was one of Obamas daughters, this picture would never have been shoot. Time to take Legal Action on the People that allowed this to be shown. This is so Wrong.!~
