Yesterday, Newt Gingrich claimed that the "gotcha press ... took dramatically out of context" his criticism of the GOP Medicare reform plan on Meet the Press "and tried to make it dramatically a fight between me and Paul Ryan." Today, according to the Daily Caller, Gingrich "blamed the 'adversarial nature of the show' for distorting his position on individual mandates." [Daily Caller]
