To be fair.
Romney is not currently employed by Bain Capital.
But he was a co-founder, in 1984.
His current connection to the company is vague at best.

But what is your comfort level with this deal, which has just been ok'd by the FCC?

Here is a list of media outlets owned by Clear Channel. its HUGE!

So how many people remember this buyout now that the MSM is pushing Romney so hard? According to Romney's wiki,


At the time of his departure, Romney negotiated an agreement with Bain Capital that allowed him to receive a passive profit share as a retired partner in some Bain Capital entities...


Something else of importance in regards to Romney is that since 2010, his Super Pac, Free and Strong America, has given money to several people. These individuals used the money to win their own campaigns, and then have recently come out and endorsed Romney!

Source:
35 Romney Endorsements Received Donations First

So, from my point of view, Romney played his cards very well. He essentially owns the media which would explain their adoration of him. And he's put money into a lot of hands to ensure endorsements.

This is truly the establishment vs. The People. Mitt Romney vs. Ron Paul.
