CNN Host Criticizes Own Network for ‘Ganging Up’ on Perry During GOP Debate

Media

"many of Wolf Blitzer's questions, they singled out the Texas governor"

CNN host Howard Kurtz spent air time on Sunday to criticize his own network and fellow host Wolf Blitzer over last week's GOP presidential debate. According to Kurtz, CNN and Blitzer spent too much time singling out Rick Perry. The way he put it: it was "obvious" that the other candidates "had some company" when it came to "ganging up" on Perry.

"Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, and the others were ganging up on Rick Perry," Kurtz said. "But there's no question they had some company. If you look at many of Wolf Blitzer's questions, they singled out the Texas governor even when the moderator was addressing Perry's Republican rivals."

But Kurtz didn't only focus his critique on his own network. He also characterized questions from the Tea Party audience as "useless."

"When you talk about building drama, I want to make this clear, I'm all for audience members asking questions," he said. "I don't think journalists have a monopoly on wisdom. But many of these questions from the Tea Party reps were so vague as to be kind of useless."
