We were repeatedly promised by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus that exactly what happened during Wednesday night’s Republican presidential debate would not happen. Priebus assured us he had taken control of the debate and moderator process. Writing for Breitbart News, after a disastrous 2012 debate cycle, Priebus guaranteed he would “ensure presidential primary debates serve the interests of voters–not the mainstream media.”
Last night’s CNBC debate wasn’t just an exercise in media bias so glaring that even those who never side with Republicans on the issue of media bias now are, it was completely preventable. Anyone who knows anything involving the DC Media, knows that last night’s chief moderator, John Harwood, is a die-hard leftist devoted to his cause.
Harwood’s naked, hostile bias and outright lying was nowhere near as shocking as Priebus agreeing to allow him to depose our candidates in front of the entire country.
Hold on to your hats because the news gets worse. Unless something changes, the very same network that used lies and cheap shots to try and assassinate our candidates last night, gets another chance to do Hillary’s bidding in Houston, Texas. Currently, there is a NBC/Telemundo debate scheduled for February 26.
Last night a visibly angry Priebus lashed out at CNBC. “I was very disappointed in the moderators. I’m very disappointed at CNBC,” he said in the spin room to reporters after the debate. “I thought maybe they would bring forward a pretty fair forum here tonight, but I think it was one gotcha question, one personal low blow after the other.”
Well, that’s all well and good. The question now is, what are you going to do about it?
