One of the excuses that Mitt Romney is using to back out of the YouTube debate for Republicans is all the sexual predators on the internet.
"YouTube looked to see if they had any convicted sex offenders on their web site. They had 29,000," he said, mistaking the debate co-sponsor for the social network MySpace, which has recently done a purge of sex offenders from its rolls.
Ummm, and who owns MySpace? Oh, that would be Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News. Republicans are terrified of questions from the public. The media is so cowered by the GOP that they know if they ask tough questions, they won't get invited to the cocktail party in Georgetown the next week-end.
People like Giuliani are terrified that a YouTube questioner will ask something such as "Why does a thrice married (once to his cousin) cross dressing, abortion loving, gun grabbing, homosexual tolerating, east coast mayor deserve our vote.
I doubt Britt Hume would ask him that question on Faux News.
