During a Republican rally in Minnesota last week, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley took a shot at the media, saying: "People love America. Trouble is, we got a press that doesn’t love America and America gets blamed for everything."
During a conference call this morning with Iowa reporters, Grassley expanded on the thought. Grassley says, "When you look at all the countries in the world, the United States has been, is and will continue to be the greatest and we don’t need to apologize for America. America isn’t perfect but we don’t need to apologize for America, and public officials that do or people in the media that do, I take disagreement with."
