In Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal, columnist William McGurn wrote “Thank you,CNBC: For giving millions of Americans front-row seats to the press bias against Republicans.”
The great irony here is that it was precisely CNBC’s bias that made for such a good evening for Republicans. Republicans are always complaining about the media double standard—and last Wednesday night, CNBC gave millions of Americans the full monty. Viewers also saw how powerful it can be when Republicans take the opportunity to turn questions back on their inquisitors.
That’s some serious trolling right there.
