Nothing says “fair and balanced” like a Fox News anchor complaining that watching CNN's Democratic debate last week was like “watching a hostage tape.”
In a discussion with pollster Floyd Ciruli about the impact of Vice President Joe Biden’s decision not to run for president, Cavuto made this smug comment:
CAVUTO: I’m not taking sides, but the debate, it was boring. I mean, no offense to the debaters or anything, it was just like watching a hostage tape, but that’s fine.
As AP noted, that “hostage tape” was watched by 15.8 million people last Tuesday, the largest TV audience ever for a Democratic debate. More people watched it than watched Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama debate in April 2008. It also beat a number of popular shows in the ratings.
