Carole Simpson On The Crowley Controversy

The last woman to moderate a Presidential debate, Carole Simpson, appeared on MSNBC today to talk about the uproar over the campaigns complaining about CNN’s Candy Crowley.

Simpson, who moderated the debate between Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot in 1992, did not hold back.

“I was very upset that women were reduced to the Vice Presidential debate and to the town hall format, which does not give a woman the chance to ask the questions. The public, the voters that are going to be there tomorrow night asking questions have very basic questions about their neighborhoods and crime and their schools and so on and I’m sure Candy might like to ask, if it doesn’t come up, more questions about reproductive rights for women. I was going crazy the other night when Martha [Raddatz] was an hour and 15 minutes into the debate and there were no questions about women’s reproductive rights being perhaps set back.”
