Considering how much bashing MSNBC has done of the CNN Democratic presidential debates and the moderators (Dana Bash, Don Lemon, and Jake Tapper), it was no surprise when the late-night portion of their coverage (12:30 a.m.-2:00 a.m. Eastern Thursday) repeatedly bashed CNN for having and insufficiently covered issues like education and impeachment and created too much conflict.

MSNBC political analyst and former Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter bemoaned at the 12:40 a.m. Eastern mark that “my problem with both of these debates...was like they were arguing about stuff that's not really very relevant to the viewers,” which AM Joy host Joy Reid interjected to blame on the moderators.
