The Candy Crowley Tipping Point
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/18/2012 6:18:17 AM

She got it wrong. She interfered. She took a side. Candy Crowley may finally have done something else as well: so visibly tipping the scales of media bias that the end result makes Mitt Romney the next president. Taken all together, CNN's Candy Crowley, in her zeal to intrude on the presidential debate and save President Obama from himself, may just have provided the televised moment that finally sparks a revolt against the four years of fawning coverage of President Obama. Becoming to the liberal media what the Tet Offensive was to Lyndon Johnson and the Vietnam War.

She looked to me like the late John Candy in drag and her performance was a joke. Her response was so quick I believe it was coordinated with the WH. I also feel that little barry had all the questions in advance. I can't prove it but just got the feeling during the debate.

Obama's 4 weeks of steady lies about Benghazi, the complicit media's consistent coverup and media fog and finally Candy Crowley's over-the-top roll as a corrupt leftist moderator in the 2nd debate, provide what we call a 'teachable moment'.

Obama is a dangerous liar.
The complicit leftist mainstream media is corrupt and biased beyond redemption.

FTA: ''Add it all up, and Crowley's posture on Tuesday night was that of a pro-Obama participant, not the impartial moderator that voters expect.''

Great article Mr. Lord, but no one I know expected Crowley to be honest with America. The media's objective is still to get this America-hating clown re-elected and you know what? I don't think they even know why themselves, other than he's not a Republican. Honestly, the media types are really not all that bright.

No one can stay home. Everyone must vote if Obama is to be kicked out. Romney needs a indisputable majority everywhere in order to avoid a recount circus, refute Obama's agenda and to give Romney the mandate to clean house.

The one thing which can be counted upon with these people is their unerring ability to destroy themselves. They will end up hanging themselves every time, because what they offer does not work, and their means are therefore necessarily corrupt.

The sad part is if she had read the transcript she had in her possession it would have destroyed the won, but she continued to lie to cover for the won. We all knew something was coming when the DNC objected to Candy.... It backfired, it helped Romney & hurt the so called journalist world. Lets see how many credible journalist will stand up & object to Candy's performance.

I've been hearing about the "tipping point", that moment when the anti-American MSM is finally exposed to Joe Sixpack, for years. I even believed it myself once. Let's face it: Joe & Jane Sixpack STILL get their information through the MSM filter. An informed electorate would have demanded accountability after Fast & Furious broke. An informed electorate would be demanding Crowley's head and her those of her bosses at CNN. The Honey BooBoos don't know or care.

Candy screened the questions prior to the debate. And she allowed that stupid woman to slur President George W. Bush, asking President Romney how he was different. There should have been an equivalent question to the kenyan klown about Carter.
The 'assault weapons' ban question was out of place, and the libya question was a set up.

This topic is too serious for the fat jokes.

Above posters have it right about NerØbma' knowledge of the transcript. The Benghazi exchange in the debate highlighted the Emperor's lack of clothes and the media's excess of bias for all to see. Hopefully more voters will view what they are being fed by the media in a new light.

2. How did Obama know who the questioner Kerry was, that he was male and not female, and where to find him in the audience?

3. What did Michelle Obama know about the scenario and why did she, all by herself, begin clapping loudly when clapping was against the rules?

'A tipping point emblamatic of a mainstream media doing everything in its power to avoid honest coverage of a president. To give him not just cover but unadultrated idolatry.'

and best of all ...

Yeah, I thought that was more than just suspicious when 0bama ordered Candy to read a transcript of a press conference from a couple of weeks prior, which he somehow knew that she, entirely by coincidence, had right there at her fingertips. Why, it was almost as if they had planned it in advance./s
I guess Candy has her application in for 0bama's next press secretary.

My thoughts exactly #16. Obama coaxed Romney to keep going because he was waiting for the setup moment. When it came he told Candy to get the transcript. This was all preplanned. Everyone should be contacting CNN to complain about this. It is obvious it was preplanned and goes way beyond anything I have seen the media do since Rather and the typewriter. Clearly that didn't prevent them from continuing in their media bias, but in a debate, to benefit their hero??? EVERYONE MUST SPEAK OUT ON THIS!!! Sorry for yelling.

I discovered this "Tipping Point" the author writes about last night at a social event here in the city last night.

I'm a conservative who works in Manhattan, which is something akin to being a Christian living in Rome during the height of the Roman Empire.

I too was shocked by the overt bias by Crowley and revealed in the questions "chosen" to be asked during the debate. But again, work in Manhattan and I have little doubt that 60% of the people I work with- all highly educated white-collar types- have a political point of view far to the Left of mine. So, I avoided any water-cooler talk concerning the debate during the work day for fear of blowing my cover and endangering my own career prospects.

Then at a work/social last evening I happened upon a conversation by a large group of my co-workers- who are unabashedly liberal- discussing the tenor of Tuesday's debate. Almost to a person, they were dubious about the "undecided"-ness of the questioners, and were surprised at how much the questions asked were from a left-wing perspective. Then a lefty co-worker brought up Crowley's "moderating" and stated she was surprised the GOP signed off on her selection, then goes "That had to have been a set up with that transcript. You're telling me of all the speeches Obama and Romney have made - that's the single transcript she has at the ready?"

Again, I was gobsmacked!

None of these folks are going to change their votes and vote for Romney in three weeks, but what last night revealed to me is that if these folks can recognize this bias - even in their favor - millions of independents and others across the country recognized it as well.

What's done is done, though it's good this is getting out, it's still not being covered by the usual left media sources.

But hopefully it will serve as a message to Bob Schieffer, the next moderator.

Yes, # 16 and others making the same point: How did Obama know that Crowley had a transcript of his remarks in the Rose Garden?

This has bothered me from the moment Obama said, "Proceed" with that funny smirk on his face - like the cat that ate the canary. When he ordered Crowley, as if she were his secretary, to do his bidding and get the transcript, it all made sense.

This was a setup and Romney walked right into it.

Regarding the transcript: I didn't and don't think Crowley actually had a transcript of some minor speech given in the Rose Garden. She's no genius, but she can't possibly be dumb enough to bring physical proof of her bias to a debate.

But Obama is dumb enough to let it out of the bag that there was pouring over transcripts looking for the word "terror" or "terrorism"... and Crowley somehow being aware of it.

Her rehearsed collusion was clear when Obama referred to "the transcript" and she instantly knew what to say. How would she know what he was talking about if not in on the lame attempt to claim Obama had called Benghazi a terrorist attack all along?

Too bad Romney didn't turn it on crowly and ask her why she had a transcript and how Solbama knew it. Disgustingly obvious. When will republicans stop allowing these liberal news pimps to interject themselves into supposedly honest discourse. I think I know why. Because democrats wont do a debate that isn't rigged in their favor.

What I take away from the debates so far:

First Debate finally made it clear that the Lightbearer is not by any stretch of the imagination the smartest guy in the room. The mighty Oz just had the curtain torn away.

Second Debate:
The major media just got exposed for the shilling DNC hacks they all are. Again the curtain falls and the reality is not pretty.

barring something weird like wag the dog attack on Syria this weekend: predict third debate will allow Americans to see what a dangerous world we are living in compared to 4 years ago.

I worked for a huge media company for almost two decades. While there is no doubt that the vast majority of the editors and TV personalities supported Democrats, I also learned that much of what is thought to be conspiracy usually wasn't, but the way that Libya thing played out was very suspicious. Romney tries to get Obama to confirm the rose garden remark and FOR THE ONE AND ONLY TIME Obama doesn't interrupt but prompts Romney to CONTINUE, ceding him airtime. Then after Romney says it took two weeks, Obama asks Crowley to check the transcript. How did Obama know she just coincidentally happened to have that one particular transcript? Then, she actually MISQUOTES the transcript. Maybe all of that was happenstance but (and especially after all that so-called agreement between the two campaigns that Crowley wasn't supposed to interject at all) it doesn't pass the smell test to me.

Some Wiki background on the Pres. Debate Commission...

The organization, which is a nonprofit corporation controlled by the Democratic and Republican parties, has run each of the presidential debates held since 1988. The Commission is headed by Frank Fahrenkopf, a former head of the Republican National Committee, and former White House press secretary Michael D. McCurry. As of 2011, the Board of directors consists of Howard Graham Buffett, John C. Danforth, John Griffen, Antonia Hernandez, Caroline Kennedy, Newton N. Minow, Richard D. Parsons, Dorothy Ridings, and Alan K. Simpson.

They should lose their non-profit status and a class action lawsuit should be commenced by Tea Party activists, immediately

It is SOOO obvious that the Crowley “fact check” was coordinated with Obama in advance.

At: :14 Romney starts he statement about how Obama did not call the attack terrorism.

At :29 Obama smugly tells Romney to proceed.

At :38 Obama tells Crowley “Get the transcript!”

At: :39 (possibly before the word transcript even completely leaves Obama’s mouth) Crowley states “he did infact”

Do you blame leftist thugs for being leftist thugs, or do you blame the RNC for allowing 100% leftist moderators ?

From an interview after the debate, Crowley said,
“I, sort of, reread a lot of stuff about Libya because I knew we’d probably get a Libya question so I kind of wanted to be up on it,” said Crowley.

Probably??? Probably a question about Libya? She chose the questions. That's a strange thing to say.

CNN explains the transcript: This was posted here yesterday, by ketchuplover.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/10/cnn-explains.php

I believe that BO was talking to CC when he said, 'Get the transcript...Could you say that a little louder Candy?'. Why would he tell MR to get the transcript if he already knew that CC had it ready and waiting?

Rose Garden speech:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Nu6VZ9DeVc

BO on how our country 'respects all faiths and that we reject all efforts to denigrate the faiths of others', which seems to refer to the anti-muslim video. At the end he says, 'no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation', not specifically that this was an act of terrorism. IMO

The original question about Benghazi was, "...Who denied enhanced security, and why?" Obama's answer was irrelevant and Crowley had the irrelevant transcript to back him up. I'd like to know how she knew what he would answer and why would she have the transcript for the irrelevant answer.

I believe "get the transcript" was aimed at Romney. That still doesn't excuse Crowley's botching the exchange.

Any one with half a brain knows this already. My friend and her family I consider total idiots in regards to politics. They do not follow any politics and they voted for Obama. She does not pay attention at all to current events at all and lives in a bubble. Interestingly enough her and her family are a bit racist, but also they believe what the Tee Vee tells them. When I think of how Obama won, I think of her.

#40, Republican tolerance of the inequities proves the simple "fact" that they're stupid. It's the cowardly dogma your cohorts and all progs believe. They truly live in an echo chamber, it explains how the Obama campaign could pull such outrageous behavior. Sure, there's a huge stink being raised by the right but most progs are totally unaware.

I haven't gone back to look at the actual transcript of the debate, but my impression of this exchange was that after Romney came back with the "let me get this straight" line and Obama had his scary eyes lasered on him, did he not say.. "Candy" first.. then Romney was still in his speech, and O said again right away.. "Candy" again followed by, "get the transcript". He was talking at the same time as Romney, so it was kind of hard to hear, but I was pretty clear in that Obama was directing Crowley when the question was brought up, to get it. They knew it would be brought up.. SHE picked the questions. Of course she didnt know if they would get to it, (they buried it late in the debate, Im sure hoping to run out of time), but no mistaking that she would be prepared anyway. I just wonder what other "facts" she had at her ready to dispute either candidate. Having the chance to ask follow-up questions was her agreement before the debate. If I remember correctly, this was changed a couple days before the debate and not the norm for this town hall style.

Did any undecided women notice how Obama dismissively ordered Candy to get the transcript ?
" Get the transcript , Candy ! "
made Obama sound like a misogynist used
to treating women like servants.
Romney , because he is a gentleman and also used to dealing with women in a professional work environment ,
would never have ordered Crowley around like that.
The story that millions saw on for themselves
while watching
the debate was Obama's hyperactivity and snarky nastiness,
his inability to answer questions ,
his high pitched , unmanly voice which signaled desperation and his beady snake eyes.
If the executives at CNN had any ethics ( ha ! ) ,
Crowley would be suspended .
Instead they have gushed over Crowley and excused her terrible behavior by saying Obama speaks slowly
( stuttering and uuuuhhhs ),
that's why Crowley had to give him more time.
Does CNN understand that by labeling Obama a slow talker , they reinforce that he requires a time handicap.
In other words , he's not too bright.
Paging Chris Matthews.
If FOX moderated a debate and
one of their anchors behaved the way Crowley did -cutting off Romney 28 times vs 9 times for Obama ,
acting as Obama's teleprompter ,
giving him more time,
refusing to let Romney answer questions,
always giving Obama the last word on any subject and
selecting moron questions-
that alone would get them suspended for unprofessional conduct.
But, actually helping a presidential candidate answer a question
by presenting fraudulent information
would definitely get them fired.
By just by FOX.
CNN will probably promote Crowley.

"Get the transcript" sounds like something an office pit bull would bark at some poor thing from the typing pool.

Duh Wun showed his true colors about the way he views women. There to do his bidding. He's been carried around on a silver platter all his life by women, hidden behind women, and basically resents them for it.

Bet you Mitt doesn't order Ann around like that, or any other woman.

I think they need to change these debate structures. Make it simple:

1. Only two debates

2. Each candidate picks the moderator, place, format and audience.

Simple!

PS.... I wouldn't of been surprised to see Candy rush over to Obama, kneel down and kiss his ring after the debate. These people are sickening!

I am amazed at the conspiracy mongering on this particular debate exchange - an exchange, which to me, Romney clearly won at the time, Crowley or no Crowley.

One other thing, at the moment Romney is widening his lead. It will narrow again before the election, so don't panic, it's the nature of these polls.

Broken glass people. Romney landslide. Romney Illinois.

The reason Romney was so perplexed during this particular part of the debate was because Obama and Crowley had obviously conspired to create a "gotcha" moment to trap him. How else would Crowley have been able to so quickly declare Barry correct? How would she have known that the president was going pull this bit of trivial semantics our of his rear end? They both knew their roles and they played them.

I am absolutely convinced that this was planned in advance by Crowley and the administration. Anyone who's read any of the exchanges from the now-defunct "Journolist" knows that many reporters actively seek advice from Democratic operatives on how to attack conservatives.

This bit of contrived theater was every bit as shameful as what Dan Rather tried to do to George W. Bush.

It was reported somewhere that Crowley spent some time at the White House before the debate, possibly a tutoring session. The flub-up on the terror question gives that away, Obie and Candy outsmarted themselves trying to spring the trap too quickly. It's just too bad that most people are too stupid to have picked that up and just saw Obama as a wise and tricky debater. But then if those same people weren't so stupid, he wouldn't have been in the White House in the first place.

agree w the article. Crowley episode is another in the sequence of exploding cigars that has been the Obama campaign, where each tactical victory becomes a vaster loss. Yet to be seen, again too late, is how all the flattery the WH has demanded of the media has itself contributed to Obama's defeat, never letting him see his position clearly. Flattery is more dangerous than persecution. Too late now.

She was biased. She may have had Obama talking points. She cut off Mr Romney many more times than she did Obama. She interjected herself into help Obama and her points were incorrect, but she only retracted that point the next day. Furthermore, of had been paying attention, she would have known that Obama did Not answer certain questions he was asked. He just rambled. She should have made him answer the questions, such as why the security was pulled from the Libyan city where the terror attack occurred. She presented a partisan moderator and since she represented CNN, she should be put on suspension until she can trained to present a fair/balanced neutral position.If CNN wishes to post the fact they they are in fact a left wing media outlet, then that is a different story. In that case, they would finally be telling the truth.

Look all around the edges for other perspective. Although, I would like to know why she went to the White House and what was said. a date with the most powerful man on earth might goes to a girls head.

She had some paper and some have suggested the obama camp provided her transcripts (I wouldn't kick a dog on the evidence of a partisan/participant provided transcript)--remember the Birth Certificate which names obama's father where the name on original is probably "unknown".)

What was really telling in body language and her response was his appeal to her and her facilitating him. It was the connection of her obedience to a superior in the human hierarchy that was telling. Subtle but instinctive more than coordinated between the two liberals in advance IMO.

Her own self interest would have been to do it up right as a journalist. But she responded to his cue/appeal as a female or friend.

Mesmerized and utilized. He tried the same on Raddatz.

Redistricting in Utah Makes

Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/31/2014 5:33:14 PM     Post Reply
SALT LAKE CITY— Utah earned an additional congressional seat following the 2010 census, and Republican state lawmakers in charge of the redistricting process used that opportunity to slice up the district of seven-term Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Matheson into four parts. Matheson ran in the 4th District in 2012 and won, but just barely. He held off Republican Mia Love by fewer than 800 votes in the most expensive congressional race in state history. Now Matheson isn´t seeking re-election and the odds are a Republican will win the seat. Matheson has dismissed speculation that his decision to retire was spurred by fear he

Leland Yee’s campaign debt at root of

In more than a decade of campaigns for the California Legislature, San Francisco mayor and secretary of state, state Sen. Leland Yee raised in excess of $5 million. Yet it was a campaign debt only a fraction of that amount that federal officials allege pulled the veteran politician into a sprawling sting operation. The 137-page FBI affidavit against Yee and more than 20 other defendants says the San Francisco Democrat’s focus on retiring a $70,000 campaign debt from his unsuccessful 2011 mayor’s race and raising money for his 2014 candidacy for secretary of state led him to accept bribes in return

The FBI isn’t breaking up with the SPLC —

Last week, the FBI received a lot of attention and praise from conservative sources for finally eliminating the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) from its website’s list of “hate crimes” resources. However, while a headline at Breitbart says the FBI “dumps [SPLC] as hate crimes resource,” and an article at The Daily Caller said the FBI was “breaking ties” with the SPLC, a public statement from the FBI and the agency’s own website indicate the removal may mean just that — removal from the site, not a diminishing of the relationship between the two organizations.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Political hunt for sex abusers puts

The push from the commander in chief, generals and politicians to punish sexual offenders has become so relentless that it endangers the fairness of the military justice system, defense lawyers say. They worry that a cacophony of public statements vouching for accusers and demanding justice can sway military judges and jurors who are trained to take lawful orders. A military judge already has ruled that “unlawful command influence” infected the infamous case of an Army general charged with a string of sex offenses. “I think it’s troublesome when you have the president and the secretary of defense making certain pronouncements about what’s to

7.5 quake on California fault could be

Experts say a bigger earthquake along the lesser-known fault that gave Southern California a moderate shake could do more damage to the region than the long-dreaded “Big One” from the more famous San Andreas Fault. The Puente Hills thrust fault, which brought Friday night’s magnitude-5.1 quake centered in La Habra and well over 100 aftershocks by Sunday, stretches from northern Orange County under downtown Los Angeles into Hollywood — a heavily populated swath of the Los Angeles area. A magnitude-7.5 earthquake along that fault could prove more catastrophic than one along the San Andreas, which runs along the outskirts of

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful.

Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
