‘Press is a Modified Petting Zoo’ on Romney Foreign Trip, Says Greta

The foreign interviews with U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney continue. Romney’s sitdown with Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren airs tonight and tomorrow night on her 10pmET show. And while Romney has done interviews with CBS’s Jan Crawford, ABC’s David Muir and CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in Israel and NBC’s Brian Williams late last week in London, the press has been kept at bay somewhat during the foreign travels. The campaign originally planned to keep the press out of a fundraiser in Jerusalem this morning, but acquiesced. And on GretaWire a short time ago, Van Susteren writes:

There has been no press access to Governor Romney since we landed in Poland. 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.) Under the headline “Governor Romney won’t like this” we saw a big sign in the crowd for Rep Ron Paul.

> More: While in Poland, Romney will also sit down with FNC’s Carl Cameron. First clips will air Tuesday morning.
