Sen. Marco Rubio said Wednesday night that Hillary Clinton got a free pass by the media in coverage of her testimony about the embassy attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans.
"The Democrats have the ultimate super PAC — it's called the mainstream media," Rubio said at the GOP presidential debate.
"Last week, Hillary Clinton went before a committee. She admitted she sent emails to her family saying, 'This attack on Benghazi was caused by Al Qaeda-like elements.' She spent over a week telling the families of those victims and the American people that it was because of a video. And yet, the mainstream media is going around saying it was the greatest week in Hillary Clinton's campaign ... It was the week she got exposed as a liar."
Earlier in the debate, Sen. Ted Cruz also tossed barbs at the media coverage, saying the media had treated Democrats more favorably.
Cruz contrasted Wednesday's GOP debate to the last Democratic debate, where he said "every fawning question was 'which of you is more handsome and wise?'"
