On Wednesday evening, the top 10 Republican presidential contenders gathered in Boulder, Colorado, for the third GOP primary debate. Some of the candidates exchanged (verbal) blows. Jeb Bush took on the candidate he believes is the biggest threat to his campaign, his onetime protégé Marco Rubio. John Kasich challenged the policy proposals of several candidates on stage, provoking Donald Trump to tear into the Ohio governor's record.
But the candidates spared their most venomous attacks for the moderators—CNBC's John Harwood, Becky Quick, and Carl Quintanilla—charging that the mainstream media was untrustworthy and out to hurt the Republican Party and prop up Hillary Clinton.
