Newt's Ex Interview on ABC Proves Liberals Want Romney

ABC plans to unload an interview with Newt Gingrich's ex-wife right before the South Carolina primary, lending credence to the theory that the liberal media wants Mitt Romney to face president Obama. Why?  He's very beatable.  Maybe they don't feel the same way about Gingrich who could clearly undress Obama in a debate.
NEW YORK (AP) - An ABC News executive tells The Associated Press that the network has interviewed Newt Gingrich's second wife and is likely to air the segment Thursday on "Nightline." That's two days before the South Carolina primary, where the Republican presidential candidate is trying to topple GOP front-runner Mitt Romney.

The ABC News executive did not indicate what the ex-wife, Marianne, said in the interview and spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plans for airing the interview were tentative.
The timing couldn't be more suspect.

That said, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.  I've argued that attacks on Romney were justified now because the GOP can't change it's mind in September if he's the choice.  The same is true for Gingrich.  But I suspect he can weather it.  The other point is that if this swings the South Carolina race in favor of Romney, it quite likely locks him in as the nominee.

UPDATE: Why am I so sure this is an anti-Gingrich ploy?  Timing.
