Covering the Incumbent

7:30 am ET

From me on “Morning Joe”:

There are a lot of Republican complaints about liberal bias, in terms of media coverage of this campaign. Some are more credible than others. I think one of the most credible and serious we should all think about is the President is mostly being covered, has been covered as a candidate rather than as an incumbent, whose record needs to be scrutinized and this is an area where I think there are a lot of legitimate questions of, how are we dealing with the Arab Spring, particularly protecting American assets overseas. And, also, what are our goals in Libya and are they being achieved in the right way? That line of argument and attack, with press scrutiny and with Mitt Romney making a case, should be part of the debate and I think will be because this story does have a lot of unanswered questions.

Watch it above.
