Gingrich Slams CNN's King For Question About Ex-Wife

Newt Gingrich slammed CNN's John King for opening Thursday's debate with a question about the former speaker's ex-wife's claim that he wanted an "open marriage."

"I think 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 that," Gingrich said.

"Every person in here knows personal pain. Every person in here has had someone close to them go through painful things. To take an ex-wife and make it two days before the primary a significant question in a presidential campaign is as close to despicable as anything I can imagine."
