Newt Gingrich's attack on media seals his South Carolina primary victory

A standing, rousing ovation greeted a question--the first of the evening--from the CNN moderator John King is emblematic of the deep seated loathing of the media. Whether you think that Gingrich is a scumbag or someone who (as the left likes to say) "speaks truth to power" (that would be the media), the former House Speaker has ensured his victory in Saturday's South Carolina election. You have to watch this video to appreciate how well Gingrich connected with his audience, which, I suspect, is fairly representative of the low regard the citizens of that state have for the left-leaning media. The discussion goes on for more than 5 minus and begins at 2:23 into the video.
