On Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh added his two cents to the frenzy about Candy Crowley‘s performance as a debate moderator. Not sugarcoating his sentiments, Limbaugh said in a world with journalistic standards, Crowley’s career would have come to a screeching halt.
Limbaugh began by noting CNN’s Wolf Blitzer‘s reaction to the polls immediately following the debate. He was excited to see the president ahead overall, Limbaugh said, but “noticeably upset” to see how well Romney did in the broken down categories polled.
“And then Candy Crowley had to go back and eat crow on CNN,” Limbaugh continued. “You know, in the real world, she would’ve committed career suicide last night. In the real world, in the media world I grew up in, her career would be finished.”
“She committed an act of journalistic terror or malpractice last night,” Limbaugh asserted. “If there were any journalistic standards, what she did last night would have been the equivalent of blowing up her career like a suicide bomber. But there aren’t any journalistic standards anymore. And instead, she’s going to be praised and celebrated, probably get a raise, maybe give her another half hour on that show she hosts.”
