Moderators Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace and Bret Baier did a great job running Thursday’s GOP presidential debate, Murdoch tweeted, calling their work “fine journalism, no more, no less.” 
 
He added that Trump needs to accept that major presidential candidates face tough questions.

Trump lobbed a series of attacks at the network — and Kelly in particular — on Friday, a day after he had some contentious exchanges with moderators at a Fox News debate for Republican presidential candidates.
 
Kelly asked the businessman Thursday to answer for incidents where he called women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” 
 
Trump fired back, “If you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn’t do that.” 
 
The candidate also took issue with a focus group run by pollster Frank Luntz that appeared on Fox News immediately after the debate, where the panelists mostly panned Trump’s performance.
