Last night the mainstream far left media revealed themselves as political assassins disguised as journalists.
They were also rude, nasty, condescending, self-righteous, and ignorant.
Every question was designed to belittle every GOP candidate on the floor. They didn’t even try and be subtle. They were blunt political instruments — with well-tended hair.
This was nothing less than a political show trial, CNBC in quasi-Stalin mode. Here, on full display, were Democrat hacks making use of Orwellian language—a Democrat specialty—in a crude attempt at smearing and ultimately destroying the Republican party.
CNBC might well have self-destructed last night. Journalists rely on credibility to attract and hold an audience. Once credibility is gone, there is moral black hole. And then ratings will inevitably go down the toilet. Becky Quick, John Harwood and Carl Quintanilla are now set to join Peter Jennings and Dan Rather in the green room of nothingness.
If I were working at Fox News, I’d be a happy puppy today and move to capitalize on CNBCs shocking display of political kabuki.
Gosh, next to CNBC, CNN looks positively fair and balanced.
Even two Hollywood friends, die-hard Democrats, admitted to me that the questions posed by the CNBC trio were Democrat talking points, questions designed to wound, not to illuminate.
But Cruz, Rubio and Christie took a page from Paddy Chayefsky’s Network. They got mad and refused to take it anymore. They would not step into the traps set by the leftist moderators.
By the way, Jeb Bush did a great imitation of a leftist moderator when he attacked Marco Rubio’s Senate voting record. The attack was ineffectual and Bush might as well call it a day.
As you can see in the clip above, Ted Cruz, with a photographic memory, crushed the leftist drones with his passionate and elegant response.
I don’t understand why Republicans continue to surrender to the radical left. Were the Lincoln/Douglas debates moderated by the media? Of course not. The candidates agreed on a set of rules and went at it, seven times, for hours and hours.
We should dispense with these overeducated, overbred, preening narcissists who are nothing less than Democrat operatives.
