The good news was the GOP debate hosted by CNBC highlighted the ridiculous liberal bias. Seriously, there is no way any liberal can deny liberal bias moving forward. And 2016 GOP Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz had what could be considered the best response to the moderators. According to The Daily Caller:
“So what did you all think of the moderators,” he asked too boos from a crowd estimated by the Iowa GOP to be around 1,500.
“How about we stop letting leftwing liberals moderate Republican debates,” Cruz declared.
“Let me lay out a radical proposition: How about if we say from now on if you have never voted in a Republican primary in your life, you don’t get to moderate a Republican primary debate.”
As he did the night of the debate during an interview on Fox News, Cruz suggested having conservative talk radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity moderate future GOP debates.
“How about instead of a bunch of attack journalists, we actually have real conservatives,” he said. “Could you imagine a debate moderated by Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin,” he added to cheers.
Cruz hit CNBC for having a debate about the economy and not bringing up important economic issues, like the effects of Obamacare.
“Let me tell you a few words that were not mentioned by the moderators at the debate. This was a debate on the economy. Here’s a word that the moderators never mentioned: Obamacare,” he said. “How do you have a debate on the economy and never mention Obamacare?”‘
“But you know what we had plenty of time to talk about fantasy football,” he scoffed, referring to a question towards the end of Wednesday’s debate.
When I first read his comments I was struck with a ‘blinding flash of the obvious.’ It makes perfect sense that moderators should have a stack in the game. Sure, 50 years ago maybe journalist were more neutral, but now it’s so biased, it’s hard to hear a conservative interpretation of events.
Let’s look to Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin to moderate the next debate. What do you say? Good idea? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
