Still in the camp that doesn't believe the media are liberally biased?

It therefore isn't at all surprising they'd be looking for dirt on the current Republican presidential frontrunner.

Also of interest, that retweet above was from Zeke J. Miller, a politics reporter for Business Insider. Judging from another recent retweet of his, he doesn't seem to be neutral on the former Speaker either:

As NewsBusters has been warning all year, since President Obama has no record to run for reelection on, the media are going to be throwing more mud at his opponents than likely anything you've ever seen.

Fasten your seatbelts.
