Skip to comments.[Candy Crowley] CNN Ducking Controversy
Posted on 10/17/2012 12:03:56 PM PDT by maggief
You'd think CNN would be thrilled with all the controversy over Candy Crowley's performance at last night's Presidential debate, but we've learned network honchos are NOT happy she's become part of the story.
Multiple sources connected with CNN tell TMZ ... the honchos think Candy did a good job, but they're freaking out over allegations that she was pro-Obama and harsh on Romney. As one source put it, "They want to make all of the publicity over Candy just go away, because it calls into question CNN's impartiality."
Another well-connected CNN source scoffs at the reaction, telling us, "It's typical. This type of publicity is great. More people know who Candy Crowley is than ever before, and CNN is blowing the chance of exploiting it."
A CNN source says putting Candy on the network last night immediately following the debate was not because CNN was bragging about her performance ... it was "damage control."
The source added, "What CNN cares about is the brand. It's all about the brand."

I'm gonna guess the source is a liberal. A conservative would know this, since a strong brand helps them make money and a weak brand costs them money. But a liberal would think that trying to shore up the brand to keep the profits flowing so the paychecks can keep coming is "selling out" or something.
Interrupting Romney and feeding FUBO his lines...
How much more impartial can anyone get? Candy did her job very well...
Is there still anyone who thinks the dominant, establishment Leftist mass media types aren’t in the bag for The One?
Communist News Network being impartial? Who are they kidding???
CNN = Candyazz News Network... we are sweet on liberals, but stick it to conservatives
It seems to me, that one must first demonstrate that it exists at all, before calling said impartiality into question.
“...it calls into question CNN’s impartiality.”
ROFLMAO!!! Who in God’s green Earth thinks that CNN is impartial? Only brain dead Liberals, as attested to by CNN’s stinking ratings.
How could the Republicans be so stupid as to let someone like Candy Crowley serve as moderator?
It is not possible to question CNN's impartiality, because they have none.
Candy was handy to Censor Mitt,
No apologies there, not one little bit!
Keep Obama afloat was her duty charge,
Keep censoring Romney and make Obama look fit!
The Censoring Liberal Agenda Media (CLAM)
Will give Crowley her reward,
The First Woman Referee in Presidential Town Hall,
Proudly, so proudly kept Obama from a bad fall.
And now the CLAM workers,
And all Axelrods men
Will spin Democrat glue
Over Obamas thin skin.
To paraphrase America's First Black President:
It depends on what the meaning of "Obama loving media whore" is.
” . . . it calls into question CNN’s impartiality.”
Humph, CNN has NO impartiality. It is one of the most slanted and biased “news” shows on the air. That’s why it is referred to as Commie News Network.
CNN.. the most busted news source.
Crazy like a FOX..:)
It doesnt matter whether the fact check Candy Crowley offered during the debate was right or wrong. The fact that we are talking about Candy Crowley, more than the candidates indicates she totally blew her moderator responsibilities. She should never be allowed to participate in another one of these debates, ever.
Oh BS on CNN! TH=here is no such thing as bad PR!
I don’t give the RINOs this much credit, but...
every commie knows that they must operate in the shadows, behind the scenes, and never in the open, because they’d never get in the positions of power necessary to advance communism.
Once in a while, someone comes along that has been so immersed in their worldview, surrounded by like minded, like-speaking people, that they don’t remember to keep the mask on.
Crowley exposed the communist/leftist agenda last night,
and a bunch of folks are trying to shove her back under the rug.
There’s no way that the GOPe would let this go, on purpose, in order to expose the communist left, but that’s what happened.
This is what I don't get...how brain dead are the idiot Republicans who agree to this crap?
Since the first and second pres debates and the vp debate were all moderated by the left, why in hell's name wouldn't the pubs insist on a Bret Baier or Brit Hume or someone who has a conservative bone in their body??
Rolled again...and again, and again.
I just hope the American people are smart enough to comprehend.
Who still thinks CNN is impartial?
There is no question about CNN's impartiality. There is no question that they have NONE.
TMZ? Whats next Tiger Beat
So they spend 20 years killing the brand, to the point where MSNBC occasionally beats them in the ratings, and now it's all about the brand?
if they throw candy under the bus, it would probably tip over.
not a good idea.
“Impartiality” at CNN ?
Who knew ?
I thought CNN was trying to obtain the title of Prime Pimp for the Food Stamp President. I know NBC/MSNBC currently holds the title, but CNN has been dumping any semblance of journalistic ethics and honestly to obtain the pimp title. Candy did an admirable job of sliding under the table to down low expectations of fairness and impartiality as a moderator.
Did someone mention that Candy has that Miss Piggy look about her?
That's a clever little ditty!
Oh God, I'm laughing so hard coke is coming out my nose. CNN's impartiality? Are they nuts? What are they drinking at CNN?
