Editorial | Romney campaign
Hard drives, hard questions
If Newt Gingrich is the GOP presidential candidate who runs against the press, rival Mitt Romney is the one who’d rather away from it.

It’s a strategy typically employed by front-runners fearful of unscripted moments. But it can also backfire.
