Hasselbeck Fed Up Over NBC’s Handling Of Debate: ‘Dare We Not Let Anyone Applaud For A Republican?’

The View‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck is none too happy with how the folks at NBC handled last night’s GOP debate in Florida, calling the debate “crappy” and accusing the network of displaying an anti-Republican bias.

Echoing comments made earlier today by Newt Gingrich, Hasselbeck felt the network had been trying to stifle the debate’s Republican audience:

The American people deserve something better than a crappy debate. That was the worst debate I’ve ever seen, and I’ve watched all of them. Number one — I love this — like, dare we not let anyone applaud for a Republican. […] I don’t like that idea. I think the American people sitting there to say, or express, how they believe peacefully. Number two, I am annoyed that they didn’t even get to the topic of jobs until near fifty minutes into that debate, when we are in the most devastating job situation in our nation.
