CNN’s Big Night, But Was It Cooper’s?

By Chris Ariens 

St. Pete Times TV columnist Eric Deggans has some thoughts on Anderson Cooper‘s moderating of the GOP CNN/YouTube debate. Deggans writes, “I’m not sure who actually won [the] debate…But I know who lost: Host Anderson Cooper.”

Deggans continues, “Clearly overmatched and a little surprised by the increased squabbling among the candidates, Cooper lost control of the debate too many times — allowing candidates to eat up time with long stretches of one-on-one arguments, and refusing to call out politicians when they avoided answering the questions asked.”
