"A lot of people are upset ...and I think probably criticism is justified... I do think juggling 10 candidates on stage is very difficult and if you have 10 candidates who are now emboldened to kind of jump in ... right from the beginning, it becomes a melee and at times, I think that's what that devolved into."

Do you think the backlash against CNBC after last week's GOP debate is justified?

"It's a tough position because I know that it is difficult. I do think that the tone and the tenor of the questions, really in the dismount of the questions, a lot of people are upset about and I think probably criticism is justified. If you talk across the board, there are a lot of people who had a problem with it. I do think juggling 10 candidates on stage is very difficult and if you have 10 candidates who are now emboldened to kind of jump in, and you know, are off the tracks right from the beginning, it becomes a melee and at times, I think that's what that devolved into."
