Crowley skews hard for Obama in disastrous debate


quote:

Crowley skews hard for Obama in disastrous debate
By Joseph Curl-The Washington Times

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Another debate, another debacle for America’s media.

In the runup to the second presidential debate, CNN’s Candy Crowley declared that she would not just be a “fly on the wall” as she played the tiny role of moderator, that she would step in whenever she chose to say, “Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?”

And boy did she, cutting off Republican Mitt Romney repeatedly and often throwing the floor to President Obama with an open “let me give the president a chance here.”

More, she alone decided the topics for the debate, picking questions from the 80 so-called “undecided” voters chosen by the Gallup polling organization. Her selections were tailor-made for Mr. Obama — Mitt Romney’s tax plan, women’s rights and contraception, outsourcing, immigration, the Libya debacle (which gave Mr. Obama to finally say that the buck stops with him, not, as Hillary Clinton said, with her).

Can they find a non-biased person in the media?

Looking back, Jim Lehrer will be considered the best moderator because he said the least.

They should have found someone else to do the job and pulled her once she started making the news rounds with her little declarations that she would play a big role.

ETA: Can't believe she pulled that stunt with the terrorist remarks.

Not possible. O'reilly would be great actually. AC would work as well.

ETA: Chris Wallace or Brett Beair would be good.

Chris Wallace is a life-long Dem, but I would take him as a debate moderator all day, every day.

I never can tell with him. Didn't really know he was.

That kinda makes my point.

Yeah, I think while AC is somewhat left of center, he would go out of his way to make sure the debate was fair, both in terms of questions and time allotted.

Wow.

You learn something new every day.

Just another reason why he would be an excellent choice as a mod for a debate.

He can put his own bias aside.

Agree but a huge boon for Obama. As soon as I read her background the stated context for her moderation, I knew Romney would get screwed one way or another. Hopefully her bias in favor of Obama becomes a great part of the story of this debate.

From the comments in the article:

All that was missing was a princess in a metal clad bikini chained to Candy's desk. I was waiting for her to pull the lever and drop Mitt into the pit with the Rancor.

the GWB question has to be one of the most politically dishonest questions i've ever seen in a political debate.
