The unrepentant, repeat-offender, Soviet-level liars of the Democratic-Media Complex

Here is an e-mail sent by CNN Vice President Mark Whitaker to CNN employees about Candy Crowley’s performance in the second debate. The Big Lie is bolded:

Let’s start with a big round of applause for Candy Crowley for a superb job under the most difficult circumstances imaginable. She and her team had to select and sequence questions in a matter of hours, and then she had to deal with the tricky format, the nervous questioners, the aggressive debaters, all while shutting out the pre-debate attempts to spin and intimidate her. She pulled it off masterfully.

The reviews on Candy’s performance have been overwhelmingly positive but Romney supporters are going after her on two points, no doubt because their man did not have as good a night as he had in Denver. On the legitimacy of Candy fact-checking Romney on Obama’s Rose Garden statement, it should be stressed that she was just stating a point of fact: Obama did talk about an act (or acts) of terror, no matter what you think he meant by that at the time. On why Obama got more time to speak, it should be noted that Candy and her commission producers tried to keep it even but that Obama went on longer largely because he speaks more slowly. We’re going to do a word count to see whether, as in Denver, Romney actually got more words in even if he talked for a shorter period of time.

There is so much that could be said about this, but for the moment I’ll just say this. For Whitaker to declare that Crowley’s unheard-of interjection of herself into the debate to back up Obama’s lie was “just stating a point of fact,” is like Virginian-Pilot editor Dennis Finlay saying that when a rock-throwing black mob surrounded and beat up two white reporters for the paper in Norfolk, Virginia last spring, it was just a “street altercation,” a “fight,” and not a racial mob attack, and therefore not worthy of coverage.
