You have to have known it would happen. CNN is what it is. The last man even resembling a conservative to work over there was Tucker Calrson – and he’s long gone. Or was it Lou Dobbs, until he asked why the President was hiding his birth records? Ah, well, what are we going to do?
Without further ado, here’s a Washington Times commentary on this display of umpiring bias, given us by CNN’s Ms. Crowley:
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)…
I read that the final tally in the Biden vs. Ryan debate showed that the V.P. interrupted Ryan no less than 82 times. So, I wonder how many times Crowley interrupted Romney last night. Or has someone already counted?
UPDATE: Breitbart has the tally – Crowley interrupted Romney 28 times. She interrupted Obama 9 times.
