A “hot mic” caught some “journalists” coordinating their questions prior to Mitt Romney’s press conference, “no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question.” What was the urgent question?
The press conference took place this afternoon regarding the tragic murder of U.S. Embassy Workers in Egypt, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The sickening audio before the Romney press conference confirms that the journalists are coordinating to make sure that one question is asked. And it was asked, over and over again, pretty much the same question. Relentlessly.

The question that was so urgent was a response to Romney’s prior statement:
“I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”
He made the statement after officials at the U.S. Embassy in Egypt issued a statement titled, “U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Incitement” that “condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims Â— as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”
The list of questions is here and it will make your eyes bleed. This is the coverage of responsible reporters? The Daily Caller speculates that the voice captured on the hot mic belongs to CBS reporter Jan Crawford.
Obama did not take questions at his press release.
Watch Mitt Romney handle the weasles below with class.
