Lou Dobbs Wasn’t a Fan Of Candy Crowley’s Debate Performance

In a (rather terse) interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs talks politics and debates with Paul Bond. He also discussed his former CNN colleague Candy Crowley, and her performance as moderator of the second Presidential debate.

THR: Who won the most recent presidential debate?

Dobbs: You’d have to give it to Candy Crowley. She masterfully took over the debate and determined the outcome.

THR: I think you’re saying she was biased — so in whose favor?

Dobbs: I don’t know that it’s bias. I just don’t think that a moderator ever made those choices, and it was groundbreaking, so she created a little history.

THR: You’re awfully vague. What specifically did she do that was groundbreaking?

Dobbs: When a moderator intervenes and becomes a fact-checker and asserts what she later acknowledged was a false statement that corroborated a false statement by the president, it’s historic.
