Candy Crowley and CNN part ways

December 5, 2014

 Consider this to be your feel-good post of the week for while being deluged with bad news this is as good as it gets nowadays: It is being reported that CNN and Candy Crowley are parting ways. You can read more here.

  CNN President Jeff Zucker released a statement confirming this news in which he wrote about how wonderful Candy Crowley is, if you want to read the full statement you can see what he had to say by clinking on the link above, however I want to focus on the first sentence of his statement so here goes:

In her 27 years at CNN, Candy Crowley has been one of the most important and impactful journalists on our air.

  This, as conservatives well-remember, was never more evident than in the 2012 Presidential election when she apparently conspired with Barack Obama and the Democrats during a debate to take sides as a moderator and deal what I consider to be a death blow to Mitt Romney’s campaign. 

 CANDY-CROWLEY In case you have forgotten: Mitt Romney was hammering Barack Obama over the Benghazi cover up and his claim that the attack was in protest to a youtube video and was not a terrorist attack. The President claimed that the day after the attack he labeled it as a terrorist attack and when Mitt Romney appeared to have the momentum Candy Crowley stepped in and told Mitt Romney he was wrong and Barack Obama did in fact call the attack an act of terrorism during a Rose Garden speech on September 12th. 

  This threw Mitt Romney off his game and he was never able to recover; this does not absolve the presidential hopeful from any blame for he should have been able to recover, but it does show–as Jeff Zucker stated–that Candy Crowley was indeed important and impactful” albeit for different reasons than he would have us believe.

  Later that night Candy Crowley admitted the truth: while Barack Obama mentioned terrorism and the Benghazi attack in the same speech he never called the attack an act of terrorism. She admitted that Mitt Romney was right even though she did not say so.

  While many voters watched the debate and saw this unfold live, very few probably read about Candy Crowley’s admission she was wrong so I guess this was, to resurrect a Bush era phrase,  “mission accomplished.”

  I for one say good riddance to bad rubbish!

    So what unearthly feminist porker will step up and fill the rather large void left by rock candy Crowley; who of her ilk will be ready to shoot poison darts into Hillary Clinton’s opponent come 2016?

    Never watched her, never would in the future. She is just another one of the “left” that would cover for Obama, no matter what. Don’t care if she gets another job or sits on her butt, I just don’t care.

      That debate was the only time I watched her. Come to think of it, the debates are the only time I watch CNN at all.

    Hugh Hewitt lists Candy as on of the top 3 reasons Mitt lost. You are right Steve, one less biased leftist talking head is a good thing.

      You are right, Bruce. If Romney had handled it differently it might have made a difference, but imagine he was taken by surprise and that was all she wrote.

      I agree with both of you. I think this was the number one reason why he lost. I don’t blame Romney for the way he reacted when she intervened because it totally caught him off guard for two reasons. First; he never expected her to become part of the debate and second; because it was a lie. But he never seemed to recover from it as the campaign went on.

    … and under the bus they go, from Jeremiah Wright on. Getting to be a ‘bumpy ride’, but it does warm the innards in a surreal way.
