Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) was part of a familiar chorus during Wednesday's GOP debate on CNBC, blasting the mainstream media as the "ultimate super PAC" for the Democratic Party.
Donald Trump was asked about Super PACs and lambasted his opponents for all having Super PACs that are supporting their campaigns. Trump has been very vocal that he has been self-funding his campaign and recently dissolved the super PAC that was supporting him. Rubio jumped in and ripped the press.

"You know, the Democrats have the ultimate Super PAC. It's called the mainstream media," Rubio said to loud cheers from the audience.
Rubio talked about Hillary Clinton's testimony in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi as his example of press bias. In Clinton's emails she had told her family and members of her staff that the attacks on Benghazi were done by an al Qaeda like terrorist group, but she had told the families of the terrorist attacks that it was because of a video.
Rubio railed against the media for saying that Clinton's testimony in front of the committee was part of a great week for her campaign. He said instead this was the week that Clinton was exposed as a liar.
"Over the last 10 days, Clinton proved that she can perform under the brightest of lights and can even get a break or two," the Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza wrote after Clinton's testimony, under the headline "Hillary Clinton is on a major roll."
