In a show of blatant disrespect to the man who would be king… I mean, president, Mitt Romney found out this week what it’s like to put on a show and have no one show up with the camera. As he stepped up on the stage at CPAC to make his first extended speech since losing the election 4 1/2 months ago, nobody was watching. Well, they were watching from the audience, but no one in TV land got more than a few-minute glimpse because none of the major cable networks bothered to cover the entire speech. From The Huffington Post:
"As he started speaking, both CNN and MSNBC cut to the CPAC stage. After about ten minutes or so, both moved on, with MSNBC cutting to a commercial and CNN moving to a story about the military.
"Fox News was even less kind to Romney. Even though the former governor gave his first post-presidential interview to the network’s Chris Wallace, Fox News avoided the CPAC speech completely, focusing instead on a Michael Moore blog post, Benghazi and the Steubenville rape case. Anchor Megyn Kelly even spoke to radio host Lars Larson, who was being filmed from CPAC, and a blurred outline of Romney speaking could be seen in the distance of his shot."
