Anderson Cooper: ‘Poorly Produced’ CNBC Debate ‘Made It Easy’ for GOPers to Attack Media (Mediaite)
Anderson Cooper, who moderated the first Democratic debate, had some less-than-positive things to say about the CNBC debate last night.
Pretty much everyone piled on CNBC and the moderators for superficial questions, and tonight Cooper said of the media attacks, “I certainly think those moderators gave them a lot of ammunition and really made it very easy, because I do think some of the questions just seemed kind of obvious ones that they could be attacked on.”
David Gergen agreed and talked about the influence of Fox, and Cooper used the opportunity to call it “laughable” that Fox News isn’t part of the mainstream media.
