RUSH LIMBAUGH: This debate kind of was not on my radar until yesterday actually, so it wasn't until yesterday that I knew who the moderators in this thing were to be. And I'm going to tell you folks, when I saw John Harwood's name on the moderator list I knew that we were headed for one of the most biased nights that we were going to see because if there's anybody openly and willing to act as though he's in the Hillary camp, it is John Harwood. New York Times, former Wall Street Journal, now CNBC. The display that that we got last night was a culmination of everything that many of us have been trying to tell the American people the drive-by media is. Arrogant, smug. I mean it goes so far beyond bias. Bias doesn't even cover what happened last night. That was a kill show last night. That show was designed to kill every one of those candidates. That debate last night was designed to take them all out. That debate last night was to grease the skids for Hillary Clinton. That was the sole purpose of that debate last night. And the smugness and the arrogance and the condescension with which those moderators went about it finally came back and bit them. To the point that everybody watching that debate, everybody, even other drive-by media types saw what was going on.
