GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz took the CNBC moderators to task Wednesday night during the Republican debate for their blatantly leftist questions to the candidates.
According to The Blaze, Cruz exclaimed in the midst of the debate, “The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media. This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions: ‘Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain?,’ ‘Ben Carson, can you do math?,’ ‘John Kasich, will you insult two people over here?,’ ‘Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign?,’ ‘Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?’ How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?”
But Cruz wasn't the only Republican frustrated by CNBC's political bullying.
According to The Hill, the Republican National Committee has fired NBC News from the upcoming Feb. 26 debate.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus wrote a letter to NBC News explaining, "CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith. I have tremendous respect for the First Amendment and freedom of the press. However, I also expect the media to host a substantive debate on consequential issues important to Americans. CNBC did not."
The RNC will instead hold a debate Feb. 26 with conservative publication National Review.
Do you agree with the RNC's decision?
