8/2/12, "Press Whines About Limited Access to Romney During International Tour," NewsBusters, Randy Hall
“Most of the political reporters covering Romney’s foreign travel also failed to critique or contrast the Obama administration’s policies toward the countries Romney was traveling in,” Grenell stated. “The Romney declaration on Jerusalem [as Israel's capital city] stood in stark contrast to current U.S. policy and the recent fumblings by Obama administration officials on the same subject.”
“While visiting Poland, Romney met with and received the endorsement of former Polish President Lech Walesa,” Grenell noted, who “was the leader of Solidarity, the anti-Soviet trade union that also became a Polish social movement.”
“Walesa’s endorsement of Romney was a direct assault at Obama’s failure to stand with human rights activists around the world,” Grenell stated. “With 7,500 people killed in Syria during President Obama’s term, you would think reporters traveling in Poland would be interested in Walesa’s expertise and how it relates to current U.S. policy --
- especially while traveling overseas.”
However, Grenell noted that (NY Times') Parker “consecutively ignored those weighty issues. Instead, Parker wrote stories on campaign donors’ views, fund-raisers and what she perceived to be political slip-ups.”
Meanwhile, John Nolte from Breitbart.com stated: “Now that the trip is over, Benjamin Netanyahu and Lech Walesa loved hosting Romney, and the Palestinians and our crybaby media are boo-hooing like the spoiled children they are.”
“In other words, Romney's trip was about as successful as it gets,” he added."
