Frank Rich on Romney’s Unlikability

New York Magazine’s Frank Rich schmoozed with Rachel Maddow last night about how the right-wing media, namely Fox and The Wall Street Journal, are favoring Gingrich over Romney. It’s partly for ideological reasons, Rich said, but “… I think most of all it’s a practical decision.. throughout the political world, people really, really don’t like Mitt Romney. Forget about his positions, or his flip-flopping … there’s something plastic about Romney, something off-putting. And fake. And I think the Murdoch empire wants someone who could win.” Watch the entire excerpt here.
