Rush Limbaugh excoriated CNN's Candy Crowley for her performance as presidential debate moderator, accusing her of committing "an act of journalistic terror."
Crowley on Tuesday corrected Mitt Romney during his response about the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, saying President Barack Obama "did in fact" call what happened in Benghazi "an act of terror." Crowley said after the debate Romney had been "right in the main" but had "picked the wrong word."
Limbaugh on his radio show Wednesday referred to Crowley having to "go back and eat crow."
"In the real world she would have committed career suicide last night," Limbaugh said. "In the real world, in the media world I grew up in, her career would be finished. Won't be now because she -- she gave it her all for the good guys, she gave it her all for the right side."
He continued, "She committed an act of journalistic terror. 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."
