CNN’s Candy Crowley, the moderator of last night’s second presidential debate, should stop calling herself an objective journalist.
She gave Obama 9% more time than Romney. According to CNN’s timekeeping, Obama got 44:04 minutes of speaking time, while Romney got 40:50. (Source: Politico)
Crowley also interrupted Romney 28 times! She interrupted Obama only 9 times.
William Bigelow of Breitbart.com points out that Crowley was even worse than PBS’s Jim Lehrer, the moderator of the first Romney-Obama debate. Lehrer interrupted Romney 15 times and Obama only 5 times. As Bigelow puts it, Crowley was more than just in the tank for Obama; “she dove in and sucked all the water out for him so he could pretend he walked on water.”
All this in addition to Crowley’s outright lie. She interrupted and falsely claimed Romney was incorrect in accusing Obama of refusing to call the Benghazi attack an act of terror. (See Terry’s post on this, HERE.)
