Just how limited are the Enquirer's Republican connections...

August 28, 2007 09:42 AM

... or their headline writers' grasp of politics?  Malia Rulon's article about Mitt Romney's fundraiser here next week is just awful.  First, she passes off his fundraiser as news, because his campaign just announced it yesterday.  We were asked to be on the host committee for this event six weeks ago, and the invitations have been out for at least two weeks.  It's not news.  Maybe it would help if the Enquirer didn't have Washington-based correspondents writing about local events?

She also writes:

The location of Romney's reception wasn't immediately available.

It's at Craig and Frances Linders'.  Why write about facts you don't know?  Especially when it is easy to ask someone who does?

But my big problem is with the headline:

For $2,300, Romney will pose for photo with you.

Yes, that's it.  That's the headline.  Never mind that $2,300 is the going rate for every major Presidential candidate, including the Democrats.  It's really unfair to put it in the headline like that, as if is is something special or unique... or like Romney is the only one who does that.  They all do!

So are you supporting Mitt Romney then?

But-but-but, NBS, The Enquirer is a CONSERVATIVE - REPUBLICAN paper. I read it on the Internet on a blog...

Mabley--I haven't decided who I'm going to support in the primary, and we did not accept the offer to be on the host committee. We were going to be on the host committee for the YP event for Romney, but that got cancelled because the candidate had a scheduling conflict.

Matt--I KNOW! Isn't it amazing that some people think the Enquirer is a Republican paper? They are the same people who think Cincinnati is a conservative city, even though there hasn't been a Republican mayor in 27 years. Whack jobs!
