GOP Candidates Come Out Against Freedom of the Press, Only Nice Journalists Can Ask Questions, If the Questions Are Nice

My nice question for this guy is, seriously, what the fuck?

The GOP candidate field is, by all accounts, shooting itself in the foot over its problem with future debates because of the meanies at CNBC's debate in Boulder, Colorado. Apparently, the candidates don't realize they're acting like petty, little fraidy cats.

Petulant cowards these candidates are, as Yoda might put it.

Sadly, I expect the media to cave, when what they should do -- Fox News included -- is rise as one to say fuck off. But, oh well. Money! Ratings!

I hope I'm wrong. For now, we're treated to the commentariat telling the GOP candidates to grow a pair, including you, Carly. Read some decent snark here, here, here, and here. (Open up NYTimes and WaPo content in private (Firefox) or incognito (Chrome) windows to avoid paywall problems.)

General agreement is that this is a further Republican descent into chaos. Kinda looks that way. Love Barack Obama's take on this. (Hilarious video.)
"Every one of these candidates says, 'Obama's weak, Putin's kicking sand in his face. When I talk to Putin, he's going to straighten out,'" Obama said during a democratic fundraiser in New York City.
"And then it turns out, they can't handle a bunch of CNBC moderators," he said. "If you can't handle those guys, I don't think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you."
