CNN said Crowley only gave Obama more time because he talks slowly

CNN is living in a fantasy land… or smoking so really powerful stuff.

CNN has sent out talking points to its staff, directing them to say that Candy Crowley was merely ‘stating a point of fact’ about the Libya ‘terror’ row and insisting that Barack Obama only got more time than Mitt Romney because he speaks slowly.

In an email to all CNN staff, the network’s managing editor Mark Whitaker congratulated his anchoron her role as moderator and washing over the controversy over her effectively siding with Obama over Romney on a question concerning the U.S. Consulate attack in Libya last month.

Whitaker wrote: ‘Let’s start with a big round of applause for Candy Crowley for a superb job under the most difficult circumstances imaginable.
