    How long before media finds Gingrich scandal to report on?

    Now That Newt Gingrich tops the PPP poll of republican presidential candidates and is 2nd in the latest CNN survey, how long do you think it will take before the main stream media finds a scandal involving him to report on?

    I have no doubt it won't take long for the media to make him their favorite taget... I would say they start targeting him sometime this week and by next Monday, after the Sunday morning political show, he will be at the top of their list of republicans to trash.

    The weird thing is that you think it has anything to do with political affiliation. EVERYONE has a scandal or two. And viewers and readers will tune in to hear about the scandals of whoever is popular right now. The only agenda here is profiteering.

    How long before the media finds a Gingrich scandal? Probably about negative 17 years.

    We found em already.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I think they'll beat the divorce paper dead horse lie from now until it's no longer moot. It's all they have.

    The media didn't say much about Obama being the member of a racist church, witha racist preacher for 20 years; nor his friendship with known domestic terrorists; nor his connection with an illegal land deal.

    It was pretty clear that it was to be a new scandal and that old ones wouldn't count.
    I don't think there will be a new one and voted that way.

    All pastors are racists. Jerry Falwell was one of the biggest racists/misogynists ever. Christianity promotes hate and bigotry. That's why our founders and many of our presidents like lincoln were atheists.

    Oh lord, this thread is hilarious. The 50ish ethics charges Gingrich faced, that will all be the media's fault.
