  • CNBC hosts progressively lost control of the event
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz turned openly hostile, accusing them all of being Democrats intent on damaging the GOP field
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie soon piled on the network
  • Donald Trump wrapped up his night by claiming he had strong-armed them into shortening the debate ‘so we could get the hell out of here’
  • ‘CNBC should be ashamed of how this debate was handled,’ Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus said

Wednesday’s Republican debate turned into a steel cage match in Boulder, Colorado as Donald Trump tangled with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called on Marco Rubio – his political protege – to resign his U.S. Senate seat.

As the CNBC hosts progressively lost control of the event, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz turned openly hostile, accusing them all of being Democrats intent on damaging the GOP field.

Correction it wasn’t about them losing control of the debate. They weren’t organized either though. It was a disaster of gotcha questions. Then came the all important one about fantasy football. The fantasy was about some modicum of objective moderators.

Even Reince Priebus threw out the criticism on CNN right afterward.

According to ABC 7 Denver, AP: (play by play coverage)

The chairman of the Republican National Committee says CNBC “should be ashamed” of how its moderators handled the third GOP presidential debate.

Reince Priebus (ryns PREE’-bus) says that the moderators did a disservice to their network, the candidates and the viewers. The two hours were dominated by candidates complaining that the moderators’ questions were hostile and based on inaccurate premises.

Priebus is calling the questioning “unfortunate” and says he will “fight to ensure future debates allow a more robust exchange.”

Well, when even Priebus gets his attitude on, it must be pretty obvious.  A venue more reminiscent of pro-wrestling, the moderators got into the fray breaking the one major rule of journalism: not to become the story.  But it won’t matter because the Dems will spin it as sore losers not wanting to answer tough questions. Hey, we saw what Dems did with the Hillary hearing, masters of propaganda….disinformation.

    I guess because this debate came so close after the dem debate that the bias stood out so much more.

    Moderators did not try to get the dems to fight, but as usual they had the Repubs at each others’ throats right away.

    CNBC lost big time tonight as what they were doing because it was so transparent the difference how the media treats the conservatives.

    I thought Cruz and Rubio stole the night by calling these freaks out.

    Oh yeah I thought Carly was really dim. She complained about nothing getting done in DC, but she never gave any of her policies. Really bad if you ask me.

      I agree. I think she also got the most speaking time. (she repeated the same things) But I noticed they never cut her off. Seemed like they were afraid to say her time expired. LOL

        I don’t get why they never really attacked her at least not much and Fox as usual what pushing her to be one the best. HUH! She never talked about her policies so why is she so great???
