Romney Off the Record

McKay Coppins reports on Mitt Romney's "off the record" sessions with the traveling press corps, in which nothing the candidate does or says can be reported.

"Eager for access to the famously reserved candidate, reporters have generally agreed to the campaign's terms for these 'OTRs,' which have long been common practice on presidential campaigns. But the resulting interactions -- rare, unfettered conversations with an unusually candid Romney -- have left many of the traveling campaign reporters frustrated that they're unable capture a side of the candidate that he keeps hidden from public view."
