October 16, 2012 "The moderator will not... intervene in the debate except to acknowledge the questioners from the audience or enforce the time limits, and invite candidate comments during the 2 minute response period." That was the contractual term that Candy Crowley agreed to and blatantly violated in the debate tonight. She let us know in advance that she wasn't going to follow it:What a pompous ass."They will call on 'Alice,' and 'Alice' will stand up and ask a question. Both candidates will answer. Then there's time for a follow-up question, facilitating a discussion, whatever you want to call it," Crowley said. "So if Alice asks oranges, and someone answers apples, there's the time to go, 'But Alice asked oranges? What's the answer to that?" Or, 'Well, you say this, but what about that?'"But she went way beyond her own statement of how much she was going to violate it.

Moderator Candy Crowley admits that Romney was actually right on Libya. Her defense is that Romney used the wrong "word." What say we get a judge to moderate? I've been in enough trials to know that a judge would have said, "the jury will figure that out for themselves." Just remember - journalists are unbiased professionals, every one of them. I can't wait for the profession to go extinct. Here is Crowley's unprofessional intervention into history. Also, notice how Crowley violated the groundrules by which she was appointed.
