[crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] blasted CNBC’s moderators for their questions during the GOP debate Wednesday night.
Cruz criticized the crew for asking the very questions that “illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media.”
Cruz also criticized the first Democratic primary debate accusing CNN of asking questions designed to make the candidates look good.
Ted Cruz: You know, let me say something at the outset. The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media. This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions, Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult two people over here. Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen? How about talking about the substantive issues people care about. And Carl, Carl I’m not finished yet. The contrast with the Democratic debate, where every fawning question from the media was, which of you is more handsome and wise? And let me be clear. Let me be clear, the men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense, than every participant in the Democratic debate. That debate reflected a debate between the Bolsheviks and the Menchavicks. And nobody watching at home believes that any of the moderators have any intention of voting in a Republican primary. The questions being asked shouldn’t be trying to get people to tear into each other, it should be what are your substantive solutions.
