Mistake: Romney Campaign Shuts Out Journalists
Mitt Romney, presumptive Republican nominee, campaigning in Florida Wednesday, physically kept reporters at bay and declined to answer any of their questions.
According to the Huffington Post:
Reporters covering Mitt Romney’s campaign sent out a volley of tweets on Wednesday, complaining that they had been prevented from asking the presumptive Republican nominee questions at an event in Florida.
Trouble between the campaign and the press apparently started at the beginning of the day. Sara Murray, a Wall Street Journal reporter, tweeted that journalists had been told they would not be asking any questions of Romney. “Isn’t that our decision?” a reporter asked.
Reporters were physically kept away from asking Romney questions, as he worked a rope line greeting supporters.
