  • Report: Lester Holt May Pull a Candy Crowley at First Presidential Debate

    09/25/2016 11:42:17 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 135 replies ^ | 25 Sep 2016
    CNN’s Brian Stelter says Lester Holt is signaling to his NBC colleagues that he may enter the fray in Monday night’s presidential debate as a participant rather than a moderator — thanks to intense left-wing backlash over Matt Lauer’s performance at the “Commander in Chief Forum” weeks ago.

    Mitt Romney blasted the Republican Party on Saturday for not doing more to stop presumptive nominee Donald Trump, saying that the prospects for the party are bleak. During a discussion in Park City, Utah, where Romney is hosting his annual conservative summit, the 2012 presidential nominee singled out Trump’s former rivals Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio), the last two candidates to drop out of the race against Trump. "Ted Cruz was basically praising Donald Trump through the whole process," Romney told discussion host and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. And Kasich “was in well after the time...

    Here’s my 10-minute summary of the CNN Republican debate (which should have been renamed the CNN-Pssst-did-you-hear-that-nasty-thing-one-Republican-said-about-another-Republican debate):The Winners: Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina were the two standouts in Wednesday’s debate.Rubio brought an appealing mix of the common touch and tough talk on foreign policy to the debate stage. Unlike some other candidates, he didn’t seem like he was elbowing his way into the debate, so it “felt” like he was a featured speaker. He sounded like the grownup in the room when he tussled with Trump on foreign policy. Trump grimaced and rolled his eyes, but offered no substantive...

    Washington (CNN) -- It was July 29, 1998, the day after two Capitol Police officers were shot and killed on duty. I was a green producer at the time, sent to the home of Jacob Chestnut just to get some footage. I called Candy, and she asked me to describe the house. When I was about to hang up, I mentioned to Candy that there was a dented golf ball in the front yard. It was an aside that I didn't think much of, but she asked me to make sure we got video of the golf ball. Later, when...

    On her last Sunday as host of CNN's State of the Union, Candy Crowley received a fist bump from Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who thanked her for a "job well done." "I just want to congratulate you," Schumer told Crowley. It's been an amazing 27 years. You're the best of the old-school journalism. You study it thoroughly. You ask the hard questions. You get the answers. And there's no gimmicks or anything else."

    On CNN’s State of the Union this morning, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) told Candy Crowley that the IRS scandal involving targeting of conservatives had been “solved.” Crowley asked, “As far as you are concerned, based on the information that you now have, which in its totality is greater than ours, is this case over, have you solved the case of the IRS and how this came to be?” Cummings answered, “Based upon everything I’ve seen, the case is solved. If it were me, I’d wrap this case up and move on.” Cummings added that he would release transcripts of IRS...

    Wasserman Schultz was asked by State of the Union host Candy Crowley if the Democrats' message for 2014 is Ebola and ISIS are scary but Republicans are a lot scarier. Wasserman Schultz agreed. "So we've heard this in previous elections, too extreme, too extreme their Tea Party, we can't work with them," CNN host Candy Crowley said. "So, it seems that the Democrats' overall message is yes, ISIS is scary. Yes, Ebola is scary but Republicans are a lot scarier." "Well, that's right," Wasserman Schultz said. "Cory Gardner is a sponsor of a bill that would prevent women from being...

    U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice pushed back on Sunday against GOP claims that the administration negotiated with terrorists by transferring five Taliban prisoners in Guantanamo Bay to Qatar in exchange for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on Saturday. "I wouldn't put it that way," Rice said on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked if the exchange means that U.S. officials can no longer say they don't negotiate with terrorists. "Why didn't you notify Congress?" Crowley asked, referencing the law that requires the president to alert Congress in 30 days before transferring any prisoners from Guantanamo Bay....

    As this campaign season draws to an end, doubtless many will comment on what was right and what went wrong for each party. Let me beat the crowd by stating whatever the outcomes of the Congressional and state races the notion of Republicans continuing to allow Democratic operatives posing as newsmen and women to act as moderators in candidate debates is one of the most inexplicably stupid blunders of all. And yet each election it is repeated. Let this be the last time. Here are some names and incidents that should be engraved forever on the RNC steps and in...
  • Darrell Issa on Quarantines: Governors React To Ebola Leadership Void

    10/27/2014 7:45:59 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 5 replies ^ | October 26, 2014 | Sandy Fitzgerald
    State governors are enacting quarantines on healthcare professionals returning from Ebola-stricken West Africa because the American public does not trust the Obama administration to handle the growing crisis, California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa said Sunday. "Governors of both parties are reacting to an absence of leadership," Issa, who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told CNN "State of the Union" host Candy Crowley. Over the weekend, the states of New York, New Jersey, and Illinois have all imposed mandatory quarantines on people returning from West Africa, particularly healthcare workers, after Doctors Without Borders physician Dr. Craig Spencer was...

    Candy Crowley should always be prepared to be schooled on her liberal assumptions whenever Senator Ted Cruz is a guest on her State of the Union show as happened today when Crowley parroted the administration line that a travel ban from the Ebola Hot Zone nations of West Africa was both unnecessary as well as harmful. Watch how well Cruz set Crowley's mind on the path to learning that a ban on such travel, not liberal shibboleth talking points, is what is needed to halt the spread of that disease into this country. Cruz follows up with a tasty after...

    It must have seemed to Candy Crowley like a surefire way to inspire a spirited debate by inviting both Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar of Laredo, Texas and Mayor Alan Long of Murrieta, California to appear together on today's State of the Union on CNN to discuss the border crises. Well, to Candy's great surprise (and probably costernation) they both pretty much agreed about the situation and placed the blame on the Obama administration. The biggest surprise to Crowley must have been the response of Congressman Cuellar as you can see in this video (and after the jump) making the point...

    The Democrats have no more loyal a media servant than Candy Crowley, who proved her devotion by derailing scrutiny of Benghazi and the phony video cover story in a 2012 presidential debate. Yet even Candy can’t accept the line that the destruction of Lois Lerner’s emails is a pure coincidence.

    Today on CNN’s State of the Union, Candy Crowley compared former POW John McCain with the traitor and deserter Bowe Bergdahl. She actually had the audacity to ask Sen. McCain if Bergdahl’s life was less worthy than his. While retelling the stories of Bergdahl’s desertion and conversion to Islam Crowley asked, “Does that make this young man less worthy of rescuing from his circumstances than the young John McCain as a POW?” Via The Right Scoop: Whatever you may think of McCain’s career as a Republican senator, it’s reprehensible to make a comparison between his captivity and Bergdahl’s desertion. When...

    Ladies and gentlemen, good evening.It is one of life’s verities — as the “narratives” of the fourth estate rarely fail to remind us — that journalists tend to regard themselves as the guardians and escorts of civic progress and virtue. Thus freighted with a higher mission than most, they are naturally tempted to insert themselves right into the middle of the nation’s political debates. The more consequential, the better. That may go some distance toward explaining the mess we are in these days.But for all the power of the pen, the keyboard, the microphone, and the TV cameras, it’s...

    " Sorry, Candy. Whoa." That was the sound of Candy Crowley about to be vigorously schooled by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on CNN's State of the Union. As if he were a teacher attempting to straighten out an errant student with the facts, Netayahu added, " No, Candy. No, no. I'm sorry. I heard that. I hear people write that up, but, in fact, it's the very opposite." Chastened student Crowley finally corrected corrected herself. If only more guests on her show were as strenuous in correcting Crowley. You can see Crowley, starting at the 3:40 mark in the...
