Fox News host Greta Van Susteren criticized Mitt Romney’s campaign Monday on her personal blog for its treatment of the press corps on his overseas tour, ThinkProgress reports.
“There has been no press access to Governor Romney since we landed in Poland,” Van Susteren wrote. “We (press) are in a holding pattern (I can’t help but feel a bit like the press is a modified petting zoo since we are trapped in a bus while Polish citizens take pictures of us.)”
Van Susteren also noted seeing a sign supporting Ron Paul at an event.
The campaign had already been chided for barring reporters from a fundraiser in Jerusalem before reversing the decision. Two months ago, his press aides also tried to physically stop the press from asking him questions at another event in Florida.
