Gingrich: The People Chose Trump and ’20 TV Executives Decided to Destroy Him’

gingrichNewt Gingrich‘s appearance on ABC’s This Week this morning featured quite a lot of media-bashing and echoing of Donald Trump‘s “rigged” talk.

When Martha Raddatz asked him about who Trump thinks is going to rig the election, Gingrich said it’s clearly the media. He argued, “It’s amazing that Trump is as close as he is right now considering the one-sidedness of the news media barrage.”

He said that it’s clear millions of people picked Trump to be the GOP nominee and “20 TV executives have decided to destroy him.”

Gingrich predicted that if there was no media “assault” on Trump, he would be leading Clinton, adding, “The news media’s one-sidedness is the worst I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
