republicans. watch the mediator john king get neutered. >> she says you asked her, sir, to enter into an open marriage. would you take to take time to respond to that? >> no. but i will. [ applause ] >> i think that the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country, harder to attract decent people to run for public office. and i am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like this. [ applause ] every person in here, knows personal pain. every person in here has had someone close to them go through painful things. i am frankly astounded that cnn would take trash like that and use it to open a presidential debate. [ applause ]
>> as you noted, mr. speaker, this story did not come from our network. it's the subject of conversation on the campaign. i get your point, i take your point. >> john, it was repeated by your network. you chose to start the debate with it. don't try to blame somebody else. you and your staff chose to start this debate with it. >> eric: well done. in that minute-and-a-half, newt gingrich bought himself south carolina and put the florida primary back in to play. bob? >> bob: first of all, congratulate you for predicting that. you were right. he did knock it out of a park. he came off a little angry but a reason to be angry. i'm not sure it absolutely bought him south carolina. if he wins it will be the reason he wins. if he loses, in a close race, it will be the reason it's a close race. whether it gets him revived as a candidate, as somebody to take on romney in florida, cost a fortune to run a race, i don't know about that. >> eric: dana, we were talking about it yesterday and
wondering how newt could turn it around, if there was an opportunity for him to turn it around. think he can turn it around? >> dana: yeah. i'm going to get the sport thing wrong. the best defense is a good offense? is that right? that is what gingrich was able to do. did i say it other way around? >> eric: the saying is the best offense is a good defense. >> dana: what i mean is he turned it around to his advantage. i've really got to give up the sports metaphors. go back to tortureed metapho metaphors. john king so asked for that moment. i have been thinking today. imagine the preparation at cnn, they thought about what should we lead with? a lot of people watching, make sure we hit the right note. i'm not saying they shouldn't have brought it up at all. it was the news of day. why did they decide to lead with it is beyond me? it hurt them a lot. >> greg: it was on everybody's minds.
i'm torn. have to do it first, it was great for me because i didn't have to watch the rest of the debate. what is it about the cnn anchors and white hair? what do they against just for men. it's out there. it's at walgreens. the reaction of the audience is interesting. they weren't cheering a guy over adultery but cheering a media slap-down. the media slap-down has become the water slide to victory. it trumps everything. he has to keep doing it. has to. >> eric: don't you think cnn and john king knew he'd do it? he's good at it. >> andrea: they knew it. they don't think they realized they handed him such a huge gift. he was able to look like a victim of the liberal media. he was able to look like -- to me it looked like they were getting revenge for what happened with bill clinton. but liberal media can't have it both ways. sexuality and politics is a personal matter like during clin top or it's not. i'm surprised since they didn't learn from the mistake
of tim russert. in 2000, tim played a clip of hillary with bill clinton talking about the infidelitys and asked her in the debate with rick lazio if she regretted misleading the public because she said she believed her husband. that backfireed on tim rusert. so badly. it made hillary clinton look like a victim. like she was torn apart. it doesn't help them. >> bob: gingrich made territory up in every debate taking on the press. not one of the others have picked up that that is not way to go. >> eric: very important point. a guy who has been accused of adultery and he is getting standing ovation. and mitt romney, who is, you know, he is pretty clean. he's getting booed for his treatment of his taxes. >> dana: he admitted to the adultery and asked forgiveness for it. he is not accused of it. the story of the day -- >> eric: i want to play it, because here is him responding to the accusation.
>> the story is false. every personal friend i had that knew us in that period knew it was false. we offered several to abc to prove it was false. they weren't interested because they'd like to attack any republican. they are attacking the governor and me, i'm sure they'll get around to senator santorum and congressman paul. i'm tired of the elite media protecting barack obama by attacking republicans. [ applause ] >> eric: you know -- >> dana: no, no, no, i'm not saying that. you said that he was -- had accused of having an affair. he's admitted to having the affair. the news of the day was about his ex-wife, marianne saying on abc news and previously in "esquire" magazine, two years old, so we why abc ran it when they did of whether or not he asked her to accept the affair and allow for an open marriage. that is the part he is saying is false. it wasn't a question of whether or not he had an affair. he admitted to that and asked forgiveness for it. >> eric: being too nitpicky
about it? deans no. talk about the nitpickiness. remember when he was speaker and running impeachment proceedings against bill clinton? the distinction he used at that time to explain it is bill clinton lied under oath, as he said. he was having an affair with a younger political staffer and lied. that was gingrich's point. lied under oath. while he was having affair with young political staffer that he admitted to and asked forgiveness for. >> eric: i don't care what he admitted to. dana, you're right -- >> dana: i want to understand, eric. how can you as a conservative question the character of somebody like john edwards, and then turn around and say it's a liberal media fault? >> eric: we talked about this yesterday in the break. how can you compare john edwards who stole money from his campaign and -- >> dana: that wasn't the reason that "people" magazine and "national enquirer" went after him. not the reason. i'm not comparing the two, i'm just saying on a character level when you are trying to make a distinction, you either
have to have -- you know we all decide, it doesn't matter to me or at all or it does matter and that is something you factor in your decision. >> bob: i side with dana on this. the story has been out there about newt's infidelity and came in great focus when he took on clinton and we found out after the fact he was having an affair at the same time. open marriage, people may not make a distinction. they say he handled the whole thing with the open marriage question. that's what it was. it's not a question about whether he had infidelity. he admitted to that, we know. on the record. the hypocrisy. >> eric: now you -- is the hypocrisy of what surrounding newt right now, is that the issue? not whether he had an affair but the fact he claimed to be for family values and whatnot? >> andrea: i don't think in a republican primary may look at the hypocrisy of newt gingrich. last night, based on the opening question about an abc interview, about the liberal
media planning this, not just two days before the primary, but also the hypocrisy on their part. if you talk about hypocrisy, liberal media drilled in our head that it was a personal matter. now this is an opening of a debate, nuance question about opening marriage 48 hours before south carolina. primary voters see right through this. that is the issue. >> bob: every conservative newspaper i know, and every non-main -- whatever you call it. i don't understand what you mean by "main stream media." every one of them went the story yesterday. right? i mean, so what is -- i'm not sure -- why are we picking on the liberal media. drudge and everybody else ran this story. >> eric: greg, who is the happiest that cnn and king made it the first question? >> greg: newt gingrich. that turned out to be the newt, the movie. every other candidate had a cameo. grumpy grandfather, good-looking ceo and rick
santorum is always the nosey neighbor. newt was the star. if he becomes president, msnbc, cnn have to buy reporters helmets. something that newt said bugged me. he looked to the obvious that everybody has had something going through painful things. you have can't conflate people who inflict pain and those who receive pain. you can't look to the audience and say you know my pain. there is a lot of women going no -- >> bob: good point. >> greg: a lot of good women going no, i didn't do that. you did that. >> bob: good point. >> andrea: but a lot of women inflicted pain and men who inflicted pain and going i want forgiveness. >> eric: we have to get out of here. my question is calista cool if newt wants to have another affair? i don't know.

honest about it? >> bob: i don't know, because i don't care to go looking for it. is it nitpicking? it's butt picking. >> greg: what? >> bob: butt picking. i could have gone through any number of -- i just got said something in my ear. i didn't say anything bad there. i could have gone through any number of things about obama and found all of those cuts that you came up with there, major piece. i likeed it. for your sake, it may earn you an emmy. but the point is when reverend wright and the other problems he had, he got bludgeoned. he has been bludgeoned year in and year out. freddie took a while to do that. >> bob: media has been all over him. left, right, middle, main stream. alternative, i guess what that is what you call yourselves now. right wingers. >> andrea: left wing were not over reverend wright. b. they were. >> greg: bill ayers either. >> bob: they weren't like sean hannity, but all over it.
