Rick Santorum Calls BS on New York Times; Times Reporter Says Santorum Using ‘The Media as a Foil’

A rope-line confrontation Sunday between presidential candidate Rick Santorum and New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny is making news today. At one point during the nearly two-minute exchange Santorum called Zeleny’s question “bullshit.” A CBS News camera caught the moment which was played out on “CBS This Morning.” Charlie Rose and Erica Hill then interviewed Zeleny who called Santorum losing his cool “a common tactic for Republican presidential candidates or even Democratic presidential candidates to try and use the media as a foil.”

Meanwhile, Santorum, a former Fox News political analyst, went on “Fox & Friends” this morning and summed it up this way: “If you haven’t cursed out a New York Times reporter during a campaign you’re not a real republican, is the way I look at it.”
