Fox News’ Steve Doocy Bashes CNN For Opening Debate Question

You may have heard that Newt Gingrich opened Thursday night’s GOP debate with some fireworks, accusing CNN and moderator John King of asking an “appalling” question to start the debate, and blasting, “the destructive vicious negative nature of much of the news media.” On Thursday morning, Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy expressed his displeasure at CNN, introducing a segment on the debate by suggesting that his rival news network would never open a Democratic debate with a question that personal in nature:

“Let’s just start with this. This debate could have started with one of the most egregious examples of media bias ever. If you think that CNN wold ever start with a personal question of a democrat in a Presidenial campaign. I think you’re crazy and I’d like to talk to you about buying some pipe land up in Canada. The way John King started the debate was to ask that guy right there, the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, about allegations from his ex-wife Marianne, that he asked her for an open marriage. And it went uphill and then downhill from there.”
