Fox News’ Carl Cameron defends CNN’s Crowley from debate critics

On Fox News today Political Correspondent Carl Cameron defended CNN’s Candy Crowley from criticism she’s facing ahead of tomorrow’s presidential debate, which Crowley will moderate.

“If any side [in the debate] is going to be helped by Candy Crowley’s presence, it’s supposed to be the audience and the voting public,” Cameron told his colleague Megyn Kelly. “She’s a pro. She understands that. She’s not the kind of person who’s going to be throwing bombs. But she might have a very sharp little stiletto.”

Kelly moved on without a blink.

Coincidentally, Cameron’s remarks came just after Kelly anchored a separate segment on Crowley: One that specifically questioned whether the criticism of her has anything to do with sexism.

Both the Obama and Romney campaigns have complained that Crowley may take a more pro-active role in moderating than what each side originally anticipated.
