Bozell: CNBC Debate Moderators Were 'Clinton Operatives,' Not Journalists


The CNBC moderators of tonight's GOP debate will go down in history as one of the worst examples of liberal media bias, Media Research Center Pres. Brent Bozell declared in his analysis of the event.

Bozell said the moderators appear to have calculated their questions to help Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, not to solicit thoughtful debate on important issues:

"The CNBC moderators acted less like journalists and more like Clinton campaign operatives. What was supposed to be a serious debate about the many issues plaguing our economy was given up for one Democratic talking point after another served up by the so-call 'moderators.'  They clearly war-gamed this thinking that a relentless series of personal attacks on the candidates would somehow drive their ratings and help Hillary Clinton."

"The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage."

CNBC's handling of the debate was so shameful, it owes the candidates - and the American people - an apology, Bozell said:

"The audience roared its disdain for these so-called 'journalists,' and all of America heard it.  CNBC should be embarrassed for their pitiful display of partisan liberal media bias and apologize to the GOP candidates and the American people."
