Today at CPAC, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spoke with conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham, who asked him hard-hitting questions such as one on how media commentators, a favorite target at CPAC, have “savaged” him.
“How do you survive this onslaught day in and day out?” Ingraham asked.
Christie responded that the “elite folks from the media” don’t like the fact that he decided to “take on a lot of these special interests frontally, that they support.” “They just want to kill you,” Christie said. “That’s what they try to do to me every day.”
Later in the Q&A special, Christie revealed to applause that he is giving up the New York Times for Lent.
