The Media's Liberal Bias = Facts
Every time you hear a Romney surrogate speak these days you are likely to hear a complain about how the media has a liberal bias. If by media you mean people who report facts, then yes: the media has a liberal bias because they report facts. Facts are something that Republicans have little regard for. For Republicans facts are something you tweak until they match their fantasy of how things are or should be. If your campaign strategy is that you will say whatever suits you, contrary to all empirical evidence, and if you openly state that you will not let fact-checkers dictate your campaign, then everything the media reports will look like it's biased against you. It's really that simple.
