CNN's Candy Crowley: Debate
moderators 'need to take control' sometimes

Politico, by Mackenzie Weinger

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/5/2012 7:47:41 PM

CNN’s Candy Crowley said Friday that debate moderators “need to take control” at some points because “you want the conversation to move.” Crowley, who will be moderating the Oct. 16 presidential debate, said this week’s debate showed that Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama “are both going to take whatever time they feel they can get to put their views out.” “The interesting thing to me is that everybody was talking about Jim when it was over and I paid no attention to him simply because I’m sitting there writing down where I saw holes in their arguments thinking

Will she give 'Bam 4 extra minutes like he got in the 1st debate?

Just like JournoList collaborators took control of whitewashing Obama's back story.
The mainstream media are as arrogant and destructive to our values and democracy as Obama.

"Crowley, who will be moderating the Oct. 16 presidential debate, said this week’s debate showed that Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama “are both going to take whatever time they feel they can get to put their views out."

Imagine that taking time to put their views out, what a novel concept.

It is the moderator's responsibility to get a complete, concise answer from the candidate. If they are full of it, it will show. (see Obama). If they have a clear answer, with accurate details, it will show (see Mitt). I guess that is why she has a problem.

No. Moderators need to get out of the way. I am not interested in what the moderator has to say.

Who didn't think this kind of thing was going to happen. She has no intention of letting Mitt Romney have an opportunity to make a single point. She will interrupt him constantly while only interrupting Obama to remind him of his talking points.

I have no doubt Romney's team is preparing for this.

I agree with #4. This last one seemed like a debate. Not the typical nonsense. Pres Obama, how do you keep all that smart in your attractive normal sized head vs Gov Romney have you stopped abusing animals or do you continue to hate them?

When the moderator was so stunned at the eviseration of the incumbent, there wasn't much left to do. It's not like he was going to get a bag of popcorn and enjoy the show.

Sounds like she is looking forward to debating the candidates herself. Lehrer set a standard that is unlikely to be reached in subsequent debates. Reporters like Crowley are too arrogant to stay in the background for long. For reasons never satisfactorily explained, at least to me, they consider themselves the moral and intellectual superiors of the candidates and behave toward them accordingly.

Reply 9 - Posted by: nonsense, 10/5/2012 8:26:45 PM     (No. 8913082)

Candy Crowley, the ancient experienced media talking head, expresses herself by using the words "kind" and "kind of". She sounds more like an inarticulate teenager, than an experienced journalist. Pathetic.

Reply 10 - Posted by: john56, 10/5/2012 8:38:24 PM     (No. 8913096)

In other words, Candy is telegraphing to the Obama Regime that she will be in their corner on Oct. 16, not to worry.

Oh, and you folks over at the DNC have my secret e-mail address. Send the questions over anytime. Love, Cindy ...

I hope the next moderator does as well as the previous one and lets the candidates speak for themselves. I'm not interested in how clever the moderator can be in asking questions.

She means "take control" so that their candidate has all the advantages and no limits.

Hey Candy Crowley, it's not about you. Just shut up and ask the questions.




Reply 18 - Posted by: ocjim, 10/5/2012 10:38:58 PM     (No. 8913278)

Lehrer got it right. A presidential debate moderator facilitates exchange of ideas and the candidates questioning each other and points them in the next direction with the next question. Not controls. It is not a dual interview, it is a debate. If Candy's performance is very memorable, then she messed up very much. In a town hall environment you don't want the moderator rephrasing or reframing the audiences questions very much at all. If she does make this mistake then you have the Candy Crowley Show, not a town hall debate. You want an almost pure interaction between the audience questioner and the candidates.

Be careful, Candy. Stifle your need to control.

No, OP, the question is "Will she allow Romney 4 minutes in this debate?"

The two men on the stage are running for the most important job in the Country and perhaps the World. if they cannot discuss points raised my the moderator without interference, how can they run the Country. Is Candy going to be there in the Wh to take control? just ask the damn questions and get out of the way. Let the debaters show what they know and how they act.
You think Nero interfered in the Coliseum. The fighters fight and the moderators just pose the questions and keep the time in check.
The moderators should be invisible.It is NOT their show. If the contestants do not answer a question, it is up to their opponent to bring up the point and maybe answer for them.
This is not show and tell in grade school. It is for all the marbles. Let the men debate, period. Frankly, in foreign affairs, if Obama
cannot handle it, then let him sit in the empty chair, because Romney is well versed in
taking control and solving problems.

Another point, as we well know Ms Crowley is partisan towards the left. If she trends off the center line, Mr Romney ought to take her to task very quickly. She is not there to pick a winner, but to be a neutal moderator asking the questions..and that is all.

Reply 24 - Posted by: Pinchem, 10/6/2012 2:42:33 AM     (No. 8913496)

I figure she has two courses. One is to show Honesty, Ethics and Integrity for BOTH men, or she can be a two faced lying communist whore by licking Obama's rear end.

It is up to you Ms Crowley how you wish to be advertised after the debate.

Liberal flacks like Ms. Crowley are not used to interviewing intelligent businessmen. I think Gov. R. will be well prepared for her "interruptions".

With his vast and successful leadership and problem solving experience, I'm sure Gov Romney can intuitively tell when someone is making useful suggestions and when someone is sabotaging the process. And in Denver, he showed he is not shy about speaking his mind to a President, or to a moderator.
Tread carefully, Ms Crowley.

Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, a rising star in the Democratic Party, confirmed on Monday that if she doesn´t run for re-election, she´ll run for governor.

"I´m working very hard to decide what my next steps will be. I do think in Texas people feel like we need a change from the very fractured, very partisan leadership that we´re seeing in our statewide leadership right now."

Employer retiree health care coverage, which has been deteriorating for years amid high health care costs and waning employer interest, is headed for bigger changes thanks to the Affordable Care Act, a new study shows. More than 40 percent of employers have eliminated their traditional group health coverage for retirees over the age of 65 in favor of giving these former employees a defined amount of money for them to buy their coverage on the individual Medicare plan market, according to a new survey of more than 540 companies by employee benefits consulting firm Aon AON -0.22% Hewitt (AON).

A last-minute appeal that could have stopped Billy Slagle’s execution — without opposition from state attorneys — was poised to be filed this morning with the Ohio Supreme Court. But the convicted Cleveland killer’s attorneys were unable to reach him over the weekend on Death Row at the Chillicothe Correctional Institution. Yesterday morning, they got the call: Slagle hanged himself in his cell about 5 a.m. and was declared dead about an hour later. Vicki Werneke and Joseph Wilhelm, Slagle’s federal public defenders, are left to wonder “what if?” “I don’t know what more we could have done,” Werneke said.

WASHINGTON - The United States extended the closures of some embassies and consulates in the Middle East - which had been closed Sunday due to an al Qaeda threat - through August 10 due to caution but not the emergence of any new threat, the State Department said. Other U.S. diplomatic posts, including in Kabul, Baghdad and Algiers, that had been closed on Sunday, will reopen on Monday, the State Department said. Posts in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Cairo, Riyadh, Dhahran, Jeddah, Doha, Dubai, Kuwait, Manama, Muscat, Sanaa, Tripoli, Antanarivo, Bujumbura, Djibouti, Khartoum, Kigali, and Port Louis will be closed through Saturday.

The closure of 19 embassies Sunday and the issuing of a month-long global travel alert for all Americans abroad shows how Al Qaeda´s threat to the United States has evolved since 9/11 – and how the US response has evolved, too. The closed embassies are all in an arc that runs from North Africa through the Middle East to Afghanistan, and the information suggests that the primary threat comes from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – the Yemen-based Al Qaeda branch that many experts say is now the movement´s strongest.

WASHINGTON -- The 162,000 jobs the economy added in July were a disappointment. The quality of the jobs was even worse. A disproportionate number of the added jobs were part-time or low-paying — or both. Part-time work accounted for more than 65 percent of the positions employers added in July. Low-paying retailers, restaurants and bars supplied more than half July´s job gain. "You´re getting jobs added, but they might not be the best-quality job," says John Canally, an economist with LPL Financial in Boston. So far this year, low-paying industries have provided 61 percent of the nation´s job growth

Two beliefs continue to shape debate on Obamacare. First, pre-existing medical conditions shouldn’t prevent people from obtaining affordable health insurance. And second, people who don’t want health insurance shouldn’t be forced by the government to purchase it. These may seem to be reasonable positions. But they are incompatible. That’s been shown by historical events, and it’s now being strikingly confirmed by recent experience in the emerging Obamacare insurance exchanges. The crux of the matter is what economists call the adverse-selection problem. Uninsured people with pre-existing conditions often face tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language.

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not?
