Krauthammer: GOP won fight against CNBC and biased media


Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer broke this week with many in the press by praising the Republican National Committee and the GOP candidates for pushing back against CNBC's "weirdly hostile" primary debate.

"The Republican candidates should quit while they're ahead. They won this debate against the media. The debate about the debate is over, and they crushed the media," he said during a segment on Fox News. "There is a general consensus, including in liberal media, that it was an awful debate run by disrespectful and kind of useless moderators, who clearly showed the world that there is a liberal bias."

But he also warned that the Republican candidates who've criticized the CNBC for its apparent "bias" should not get carried away.
