Paul Ryan: ‘We expected media bias going into this’

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan told host Chris Wallace that he and running mate Mitt Romney expected liberal media bias to affect their campaign from day one.

“I think it kind of goes without saying that there is definitely a media bias,” Ryan said. “Look, I’m a conservative, Chris. I’m used to media bias. We expected media bias going into this. That’s why we’re trying to cut through and go straight to people. That’s why when in Washington you hear people complain about media bias, come out into these states with us and attend our town hall meetings.”

Ryan wouldn’t offer specific examples, but said he has witnessed media bias throughout his career.

“I’m not going into a tit-for-tat or litigate this thing,” Ryan said. “But as a conservative, I’ve long believed, long felt that there is inherent media bias, and I think anybody with objectivity would believe that is the case.”
