Crowley Speaks About Debate Controversy

CNN’s Candy Crowley appeared on “The Situation Room” to talk about the dust up yesterday over the debate she is moderating this evening. Both the Obama and Romney campaigns complained to the Commission on Presidential Debates about Crowley, due to comments she made in interviews in which she suggested she may ask follow-ups.

“There will be questioners to the right and left of me and in front of the candidates,” Crowley told Wolf Blitzer. “And they will have the questions. And as was the case in the Charlie Gibson town hall meeting and the Tom Brokaw town hall meeting in Presidential campaigns past, there is a time after that for follow-up and for furthering the discussion.”

After the jump, NBC’s Tom Brokaw talks about what it takes to moderate a town hall debate.
