News Outlets Claim Romney Campaign Ripping Them Off

McKay Coppins reports media organizations are preparing to file a formal complaint to Mitt Romney's campaign contesting some of the "seemingly inflated charges" that were billed to them during the campaign.

"It is standard procedure for presidential campaigns to arrange and prepay for meals, bus travel, and charter flights, then bill the news outlets afterward for their share of the cost. In order to travel with the candidate, reporters and their editors must agree upfront to pay for the cost of the trips, as determined by the campaign. But many of the bills from the Romney campaign -- which have continued to trickle in since Election Day -- are much higher than during other campaigns."
