CNS Quotes Romney Calling Mandate A Tax, Ignores His Campaign's Conflict

We've detailed how has been attacking non-conservatives for insisting that the individual mandate in President Obama's health care reform is a penalty and not a tax, as declared by Chief Justice John Roberts -- even though Mitt Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom has said that "the governor has consistently described the mandate in Massachusetts as a penalty."

Now, a July 6 CNS article by Melanie Hunter quotes  Romney himself calling it a tax -- again, without mentioning Fehrnstrom and the conflict within Romney's own campaign.

Why is CNS protecting Romney? It's obvious -- it's biased, much more so than the media outlets its parent, the Media Research Center, loves to criticize.
