When it comes to sitting for interviews Mitt Romney is not usually a willing and eager subject. But there is one invitation he rarely turns down.
“Fox & Friends” has had Mr. Romney as a guest 21 times in the last year. That’s almost twice a month, vastly more than the four times each he has appeared on NBC’s “Today” and ABC’s “Good Morning America,” which draw five times the audience.
Mr. Romney is hardly alone in recognizing the power of “Fox & Friends” as a high-decibel megaphone pointing directly at the Republican base. At the height of the primaries not a week went by without an appearance by one of the candidates. And when leading Republicans like Gov. Rick Scott of Florida or Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin have something to say, they do it on “Fox & Friends.”
I’m pretty disappointed with this NY Times piece. If the writer did his research, he would have known despite the “ratings” success of FOX News, the viewing audiences are basically repeat viewers. In other words, it’s your racist angry 65+ year old grandfather who has the TV on all day, every day. So its prety much the same person watching Mitt Romney talk.
