Having liberal media figures moderating presidential debates is insane from the perspective of anyone supporting the GOP, or simply interested in basic fairness. Why Republicans put up with it every four years is beyond me. Last night Senator Ted Cruz (R. TX) blew that game apart. The “journalist” Ted Cruz was ripping into is John Harwood. He is a pathetically transparent liberal hack, always in the tank for the Democrat Party. Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist wonders what Harwood was doing there:
Wednesday night’s debate will be hosted by CNBC at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado. It will be moderated by Harwood along with CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla and Becky Quick and is supposed to focus on economic issues, though previous CNBC debates have strayed far from that topic.
Harwood frequently angers conservatives for his partisan takes on the news. I mostly laugh off his predictably liberal views because I don’t take him that seriously. But that only leads us back to figuring out why he’s moderating this Wednesday’s debate. Let’s just look at a few examples of how he covers news.
Go here to read the rest. Until all Republican candidates begin acting like Cruz, they will go into Presidential election years with the Media’s thumb clearly on the scale favoring the Democrat.
