    However, I must say that the Romney post-election period has been kind of a tailspin for him, not just all the comments about gifts and so on, but this whole thriving and quite fascinating subculture of articles about ORCA, ORCA, the get out of the vote effort, has been -- makes anybody who thinks it's only media bias made Romney lose, think, gee whiz, maybe the campaign was done in by its own technological incompetence.

    SCOTT: And there are all kinds of articles offering advice to Republicans on what the party needs to do in order to survive.

    MILLER: Right, the party needs to dump the Tea Party, the party needs to reinvent itself. The party -- you know, the party is going do to do all of this after a while, because the party presumably wants to win. But I'm just shocked, shocked, isn't anybody else, that the media would have been biased towards Obama? I mean, has nobody been watching--


    THOMAS: Republican presidents and candidates since Nixon have had the press against them. They'd found a way to overcome it, and that was Romney's major failing. He didn't overcome what was obvious going in.

    SCOTT: All right. Next on "News Watch," some momentous events to remember from this week in history.



    BIDEN: As a kid, I spent all my time on the Jersey shore. I'm from Wilmington, Delaware and Claymont, but everyone in the northern part of my state comes 60 miles across to the shore. Everybody in the middle part of my state goes to the beach down in Rehoboth. But, so, I was kind of, not kind of, literally raised on the shore.


    SCOTT: That is Vice President Joe Biden earlier this week, speaking after getting a firsthand view of some of the destruction at the Jersey shore from Hurricane Sandy. Mr. Biden also celebrated his 70th birthday this week, and we just want to wish you a happy belated birthday, Mr. Vice President. We appreciate all you do to add to this program.

    Some other notable anniversaries from this week. November 19, 1863. Beginning with the now iconic phrase, "four score and seven years ago," President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg address. This only confirmed photo of Lincoln at Gettysburg is a photo taken a few hours before his famous speech.

    100 years later, on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while riding in his motorcade through Dealy Plaza in Dallas, Texas. The media coverage of that event will always be questioned.

    Also this week in 1998, the Judiciary Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives began impeachment hearings against President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair and his testimony. A month later he was impeached by the House for perjury and obstruction of justice, then acquitted by the Senate. The liberal bias in the coverage was clear and present in that one.

    And then we have this. The classic film about inmates taking over the asylum, "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest," debuted this week in 1975.

    That's a wrap on "Fox News Watch."The asylum for this week. I want to thank our inmates, Judy Miller, Jim Pinkerton, Cal Thomas, and Ellen Ratner. I'm going to go yank a sink off the wall. I'm Jon Scott. Thanks for watching. Keep it right here on Fox News Channel.
