Our weekly look at the loudest screech from the mainstream media features GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's press corps peppering him with questions about "gaffes" made during his three-country trip as he visited the Poland's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. They yelled: "Governor Romney are you concerned about some of the mishaps of your trip?" and "What about your gaffes?" and "Governor Romney do you feel that your gaffes have overshadowed your foreign trip?"

Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: "As Susan Milligan of U.S. News observed, 'the reporters behaved terribly.' Indeed, you couldn't ask for a better parody of journalists obsessed over the trivial. They declare something a gaffe and then pound away at it oblivious to the setting."

Rating: Four out of five screams.
