I've heard all kind of comments about this interjection of the "moderator" as a "side-taker" - hadn't heard this following suggestion, though:
The Candy Crowley Tipping Point
By Jeffrey Lord / on 10.18.12
CNN debate moderator becomes to the media what the Tet Offensive was to Vietnam: Did she elect Mitt Romney?
She got it wrong.
She took a side.
Candy Crowley may finally have done something else as well: so visibly tipping the scales of media bias that the end result makes Mitt Romney the next president.
Taken all together, CNN's Candy Crowley, in her zeal to intrude on the presidential debate and save President Obama from himself, may just have provided the televised moment that finally sparks a revolt against the four years of fawning coverage of President Obama.
Becoming to the liberal media what the Tet Offensive was to Lyndon Johnson and the Vietnam War.
For four years the mainstream media has done everything in its power to portray Barack Obama as the Second Coming, the messiah, or, in the immortal words of one-time Newsweek
honcho Evan Thomas, "God." Chris Matthews described thrills down his leg. Katie Couric purred in a sycophantic Obama interview with hard hitting questions like this:
You're so confident Mr. President, and so focused. Is your confidence ever shaken? Do you ever wake up and say "damn, this is hard"?
Tuesday night Candy Crowley became the latest -- and perhaps the most important -- example of what Fox's Bernard Goldberg called in his book title A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media...
...The idea that the liberal media is deliberately trying to fix the 2012 election for Obama is now rampant, spreading across America faster than the flu in February.
And sitting at that debate moderator's desk in such a highly visible moment in American history, Candy Crowley's action in putting her thumb on the scale with the lights and cameras on and running in front of millions -- may finally have been something wildly unintended.
The tipping point for the liberal media.
A tipping point that makes Mitt Romney the 45th President of the United States.
