Gingrich Playing the Media He Loves to Hate

January 20, 2012
The highly verbal and media-loving (when he's not hating) Newt Gingrich, who has held court with reporters nearly every day he's been on the campaign trail, canceled his first two appearances in South Carolina today and avoided journalists like a flu germ.

There were a number of excuses offered by the campaign and Gingrich surrogates: probable low attendance (Huh? He's been packing venues across the state) and this trusty, oblique standby: "scheduling conflicts."

More likely, Gingrich, an admitted serial cheater, is ducking further questions about his second wife's explosive interview Thursday with ABC News in which Marianne Gingrich claimed he asked her for an open marriage so he would not have to give up his mistress. The night before, Gingrich took the question head on from CNN moderator John King during a candidates' debate, and as he has with other thorny problems, blamed the media for asking impertinent questions about his personal life.
