Biased CNN liberal moderator Candy Crowley admits Romney correct about Benghazi

That didn’t take long: (H/T ECM)

Transcript:

CANDY CROWLEY, debate moderator, after the debate: You know, again, I heard the president’s speech at the time. I sort of reread a lot of stuff about Libya because I knew we’d probably get a Libya question, so I kind of wanted to be up on it. So we knew that the president had said, you know, ‘these acts of terror won’t stand,’ or whatever the whole quote was.

I think actually, you know, because right after that, I did turn to Romney and said you were totally correct but they spent two weeks telling us that this was about a tape and that there was this riot outside of the Benghazi consulate, which there wasn’t. So he was right in the main, I just think that he picked the wrong word.

Unfortunately, this was not her only mistake. She also cut Romney off about Fast and Furious to protect her best buddy Obama from looking bad on gun control. It’s too late to apologize now, and she should be fired. Just like all the other left-wing activists in the mainstream media.

Breitbart has the full list of Crowley’s attempts to help Obama win the debate.

Here are a few:

1. She wouldn’t let him respond when Obama lied about the auto industry. First she called him Mr. Romney instead of governor, then protested, “there’ll be plenty of chances here to go on, but I want to… We have all these folks.  I will let you absolutely… OK. Will – will – you certainly will have lots of time here coming up.” Romney never did get the chance to respond.

2. After the question asking whether gas prices as they stand now are the new normal, Obama got 2 chances to respond. When Romney asked for his second chance, Crowley shut him off by saying, “ … in the follow up, it doesn’t quite work like that. But I’m going to give you a chance here. I promise you, I’m going to.” She didn’t.

3. When discussing how he would deal with deductions, just as Romney was about to destroy Obama with statistics, Crowley jumped in to save her man not only by denying the value of statistics, but changing the narrative to say Romney’s numbers couldn’t possibly add up:

 “And Governor, let’s – before we get into a vast array of who says – what study says what, if it shouldn’t add up. If somehow when you get in there, there isn’t enough tax revenue coming in. If somehow the numbers don’t add up, would you be willing to look again …”

4. When Romney was trying to make a point of Obama’s pension investing in China, Crowley cut him off by insinuating people were tired of him talking:

“Governor Romney, you can make it short. See all these people? They’ve been waiting for you.  Make it short.”

Then she really tried to humiliate him with this: “If I could have you sit down, Governor Romney. Thank you.” She never asked Obama to sit down.

Read the whole list.

    Crowley needs to make a national apology for getting the act of terror wrong. He did not say it was a terrorist attack. It mislead the viewing audience and seemed to support the debate result dor her liberal friend Obama. He poll numbers could have been influenced by her and the presidents lie. Romney was right and should be told he was right to the public by Crowley immediately rather than trying to pass it off as her error. Never have her as a journalist again.

    • She’s definitely not a journalist, she was protecting Obama all night, and even lied for him. The questions selected by CNN might as well have come from the White House.

    • Mikki V says:

      Obama got away with the same thing the regime did in the inital response . He absolutely did not want it in the news that an ambassador was murdered on 9/11. The debate is over and the truths are coming out. The damage was done and Crowley should go on every Sunday morning talk show and fess up to her screw ups. All a little late Crowley and you know it.

  2. Louise says:

    CNN will find some absurd way of spinning what Crowley did tonight. She cut Romney off repeatedly, promised him he would get equal time (which he did not), and actively misrepresented the president’s speech in the Rose Garden the day after 9/11/2012. Her ‘fact check’ was wrong and she NEVER should have entered the fray called Romney out on it. She stepped way beyond her boundaries as moderator. Either she makes a one page public apology in every newspaper in the land, or she should be fired. But, we all know CNN will find some way to spin it again.

    • Greg Oliver says:

      CNN will use more lies to support the lies and misrepresentations stated by Candy Crowley. CNN is truly a Left-Wing extremist media company.

  3. DG says:

    The real question is how did Obama know Crowley had the transcript of an obscure speech. Notice it was in her hand when he asked. She didn’t even have to rummage around for it. Amazing.

    • Segeny says:

      He knew because Handy Crowley leaked the questions to be asked before the debate began to Obama. It’s good to have friends in the media.

    • Joyce Myers says:

      She should be fired for this. There are rules of debate and she violated them.

  4. Joseph Indelicato says:

    I resent the fact that in the last two debates,Obama,Biden,Raditz and Crowley worked to reduce the ability of people like myself to obtain truth, so that we could evaluate our choices. My hope was that the debates would help us obtain clarity. I was disappointed. Biden was sophomoric and juvenile. Obama would not know truth if it hit him over his head. Raditz and Crowley were useful leftists idiots living in the bubble of their diminished and corrupted profession.

  5. Hulee Hinomi says:

    Why should Americans be subjected to debates, slanted with questions and biased moderators ?
    We need to have better quality, impartial debates.

    Personally, I believe Bill Hicks had it right: “Well I believe the puppet on the right shares MY beliefs! Well I think the puppet on the left has MY interests at heart…hey wait a minute, there’s one guy working both puppets!”

    Who’s that one guy you should be asking? Hint: it’s not actually a person – he/she/it is actually the true main issue of security (not Iran like one of the puppets was spouting): the outright theft of all meaningful government and control of public discourse by oligarchal, corporate wealth and possibly even the creation of the largest for-profit (beating even Stalin’s world) incarcerated population in human history…but sadly, these two puppets are already bought and paid for.

    You can tell from most of the comments here none of you were/are undecided – you all know you’re going to vote for Romney. Government in the US is very much pay for play and so long as that is the case, we’re all screwed, you’re just unhappy that your candidate isn’t paying his “fair” share for playtime – and this is what you decry instead of demanding that the system change

  8. Priscilla says:

    I’m thinking, in the end we’ll see that Candy did Romney a favor. All voters are not stupid and most of them resent being lied to while being treated unfairly. It will be confirmed at the polls.

  9. chad says:

    She should be fired. I was offended that she got into the debate like that. What does Romney have to debate both her and Obama at the same time now?

  10. Jesse says:

    There is no excuse whatsoever for what Crowley did. She should never have been given the task in the first place, as many Americans doubted her ability to moderate fairly. Well obviously they were right. There is no one in the world who can defend her disgraceful performance during that debate. This is the worst case of media bias I have ever seen in 42 years.
