Jay Nordlinger:

1) After an earlier debate, co-hosted by MSNBC, I called up a memory: In the 2008 presidential cycle, the Democrats boycotted a debate to have been hosted by Fox News. That debate had to be canceled. You see, Fox had cooties, could not be touched.

But Republicans, apparently, are happy to debate under any auspices. This week’s debate was hosted by CNN, as at least one other debate this season has been. Republicans are used to critical media. Democrats are used to having their butts kissed. They think the media exist to bash Republicans and bolster Democrats.

It also helps explain why opinion shows on Fox -- like O'Reilly and Hannity -- clamor to have liberals on to debate, whereas those on MSDNC rarely if ever have on conservatives to give their perspective.
