"People who want to be president of the United States should be able to answer tough questions." - Brian Steel, NBC Spokesman
In response to overwhelming criticism that they were partisan, personal, and trite in their moderating protocol of the recent Republican presidential debates, CNBC doubled down yesterday saying:
CNBC and the mainstream press in general just do not get it. They think they are part of the debate. It’s like they are participants also running for President. That is not their role. They are there to facilitate and maintain discipline in soliciting cogent, clear, and concise answers with solutions to solve our country’s problems. In their handling of the debate, they are the problem. The American public does not want the press’s opinion or could care less if they disagree with the candidates’ opinions. The American public is perfectly capable of coming to its own conclusions when in receipt of all the relevant information.
