Chris Matthews calls GOP candidates 'revolting' for protesting CNBC moderator bias

The insurgency conducted last night by the GOP field in standing up to biased, sneering questions from CNBC’s panel has stung the NBC Universal (and parent Comcast) empire deeply enough that it is striking back. Ken Shepherd at Newsbusters reports:

"This got a little revolting tonight," MSNBC's Chris Matthews lamented to colleague Chris Jansing in a post-debate special edition of Hardball Wednesday night. Matthews was chagrined with Republican Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) scoring points with the debate audience by attacking the liberal media. "I thought that the candidates were trying to get votes, and they were using that initiative to take it out on the moderators," Matthews added, complaining that they were "taking it out" on them, as though the moderators were asking completely above-board, unbiased questions.

This morning, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, a similar line was pursued, with even nominal Republican Joe Scarborough hewing to the party line that the GOP field was pathetic.

Nice try, NBC. You’ve disgraced yourselves, and the jig is up. Even mainstream media pundits see it.
