CBS Republican Debate
I am not a fan of the Republican Party and would not vote for any of the candidates running for the nomination. That being said, the way the moderators treated them - being rude to them, abruptly cutting them off (even in one case where Romney had more time) was uncalled for.
I suspect the moderators were angry, but they were misdirecting their anger. The likely reason the moderators were angry? CBS only showed the first hour of the debate on television, with the rest of it only being available on the internet. Why would they do that? I have never heard of that - why only televise part of the debate? I guess the crime drama that followed was more important to CBS executives than America's future.
CBS used to be THE network for news and information during the days of Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather. Now... it's been going further and further downhill, and things like this show why. There desperately needs to be new management at CBS.
Also, I'm not the only one unimpressed by CBS's performance. Recommend this post
