CNBC anchor Joe Kernen slammed the New York Times for “moral superiority” in its reporting on the CIA interrogation while ignoring that a majority of Americans support enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding.

“If the New York Times can occupy a position of moral superiority, they run with it–but they’re talking to a country that’s at 51-28,” Kernen said.

CNBC Washington correspondent John Harwood said Democrats can only push the issue of CIA interrogation so far before it becomes a political liability.
