Gingrich Hearts the Times, Post

Newt Gingrich enlisted his least likely ally Sunday to do battle with Mitt Romney: the much-maligned "liberal media." 

During the debate in Concord, N.H., the former House speaker cited both The Washington Post and New York Times in his defense during an argument with Romney over the former Massachusetts governor's job-creation record at Bain Capital. When Romney pushed back on his criticism, calling it "over the top," the onetime House GOP speaker shielded himself with the newspaper most conservatives love to hate. 

"The New York Times on Thursday said you have to say engaged in behavior where they looted a company leaving 17 unemployed people," he said. "That's the New York Times. That's not me."
