Institutional Media Bias: Candy Crowley-Gate
I just realized I never got around to posting this on my site, but better late than never. These are simply my opinions based on my observations and research, take a read, do your own research and see what you think. The following will forever serve as a great example of just how deceitful our news media can be. I put this together to prove how shady Candy Crowley’s actions were during that pivotal second presidential debate. Here we go.
The big deal about that second debate is that Crowley, the moderator inserted herself into the debate and incorrectly fact checked Romney when he was clarifying that Obama never called the Benghazi murders a terrorist attack. Check out the following video for a quick reminder of how it went down.
Now why not give Crowley the benefit of the doubt, maybe she really did think Obama had called Benghazi a terrorist attack? She heard the word “terror” in the Rose Garden on September 12th, she must have assumed that’s what he meant, right? Well the problem is that on September 30th, discussing statements made on September 28th, where it was finally declared a terrorist attack, two weeks after the Rose Garden speech, here’s what Crowley had to say about the President quickly declaring it a terrorist attack, as they both insisted during that second debate.
Remember, that’s before the second debate. Watch the first clip one last time, notice how convoluted her defense is? “It did take two weeks or so for the whole idea of there being a riot out there about this tape to come out,” says Crowley. Now to demonstrate that this biased protectionist behavior wasn’t simply the act of a single person, but part of something much larger, check this out. CBS aired an incomplete interview with President Obama during the run up to the election. It took place on September 12th, after the Rose Garden speech. Here’s the part they waited until two days before the election to release…
Notice the reporter’s opening remarks. “This morning” in the Rose Garden, “you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya attack”. It’s clear that the mainstream news media had a narrative to protect, that the President was an honest guy who immediately called Benghazi a terrorist attack and Romney was a liar for saying otherwise.
