Skip to comments.CPD: Crowley shouldn't reinterpret questions
Posted on 10/15/2012 12:27:02 PM PDT by ColdOne
The Commission on Presidential Debates does not want Candy Crowley, the debate moderator, to reinterpret audience members' questions -- a small but important point in this ongoing debate over what role the moderator is meant to play in the townhall-format debate.
"Our only issue is that the citizen questioners get their chance to pose the question without reinterpretation from the moderator," CPD co-chairman Mike McCurry tells TechPresident's

Candy Crowley keeps flapping her gums about how she gets a chance to put her own spin on things. Nobody wants that (except probably Obama because she’s sympathetic to him). Nobody. Now even the debate commission feels compelled to tell her to shut up about making the debate about her.
Bitter queen extraordinaire, Shepherd Smith, was just saying how “fair and lovely” Candy Crowley is. I almost spat my Pepsi all over the T.V. He then went on to claim there was no bias in the media at all.
Shep, your punchability factor just went above and beyond even Comrade Commie Crowley.
Sounds like they aren't... shame on them.
When your are of a particular bent in the NY/DC bubble its hard to see whats fair and whats not. It’s the same thing as having dozens of parrots in an echo chamber, they all say and hear the same thing so they see nothing wrong.
I would at least consider this as the CPD putting Crowley on notice that they do not like what she said about injecting herself into the debate by asking followup questions - the “X,Y,X” stuff. I wonder what was said via private email and/or phone calls.......
Queen Smith is definitely of a particular bent
The CPD needs to have an alternate moderator available during the debate to immediately replace Crowley if she goes outside the signed aggreement the candidates and the CPD have put in place. Let her know she is under supervision, before and during the debate. Tell her the CPD will not tolerate any disobedient from her!
If Romney would show up with about 5 dozen dough-nuts, she’d be too busy stuffing her fat face to even ask a question.
A debate should be a complete package, negotiated by the parties themselves, and presented as a package for the TV networks to bid on with the proceeds split evenly.
I,m somewhat surprised that it took so long before the mac daddy administration got caught in another cheating act.
“This entire debate structure needs to be trashed. When a TV network televises an NFL game, do the refs work for the network???”
Heh heh heh .. ever hear a Celtics game when Johnny Most was alive? That’s what this is like ... she’s so far in the taknk for BO it’ll be hard to understand her for the echo...
Romney can inoculate himself early on by asking Crowley if she still feels his choice of Paul Ryan was a death wish ? .......this will both expose her bias to the viewers and put her on notice for the remaining portion of the debate.
They should ignore her help and give her a good dressing down (figuratively of course).
Now Candy, you can’t be a participant for Obama, wink wink.
“With all due respect, Ms. Crowley, I will answer the good gentleman’s question directly.”
That oughta take the b*tch down.
Did the CPD guy go on to say what size and the voltage of the shock collar they fitted CC with and who was going to have control of the button on the remote? Anything short of that, I guarantee she will run off at the mouth and be the major point of discussion on this forum for hour after that.
Does anyone else think it is odd that Mike McCurry is on the Board of this group sponsoring the debate? How do liberals always get to decoded who the moderators are?
I am assuming Mike is the same guy who was the Press Secretary for Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandals.
