Candy Crowley: “I’m Going To React Organically”
Tuesday’s debate moderator Candy Crowley is being attacked by both sides even before the event, but she is not there to be, in her words, “a fly on the wall.”
Like any journalist worthy of the assignment, Crowley concedes that the debate on Tuesday night isn’t about her, but she just as eagerly acknowledges her role in it.
“I understand that I’m there. I’m not a fly on the wall,” she told POLITICO recently. “We don’t want the candidates to spout talking points. That doesn’t help voters … I’m going to react organically to what’s happening.”
