Self-parody: CNN defends Crowley giving more time to Obama with ‘He speaks slower’

Is CNN defending Obama getting more time during the debate on Tuesday night because he speaks slowly? Probably because all the dumb rubes wouldn’t be able to understand all his nuance-y nuance otherwise, right, CNN?

CNN internal memo explaining why Obama got more speaking time- “Obama speaks slower”.

A memo about it, even!

CNN: Candy Crowley gave Obama more time during the debate because he talks slower or something…

More from The Daily Caller, on a CNN memo reportedly obtained by TMZ. Yes, TMZ. How sad that they are doing the job that “real journalists” don’t want to do.

And then the best part. Whitaker actually wrote down these words and sent them to people who work for him:

“On why Obama got more time to speak, it should be noted that Candy and her commission producers tried to keep it even but that Obama went on longer largely because he speaks more slowly. We’re going to do a word count to see whether, as in Denver, Romney actually got more words in even if he talked for a shorter period of time.”

A word count. Seriously


So Obama had more time to speak because he talks slower than Romney. Now I understand

Wonder if some CNN employees are allowed to arrive to work late because they walk slower than others? HA!…

CNN is actually telling ppl that Obama got more time bc he talks “slower.” Are you effing kidding me? We reward stupidity now?!

CNN explains more time for Obama in debates. HE SPEAKS SLOWER. See, it’s Romney’s fault for being fluent#tcot…

Hey, does Joe Biden speak slower as well?

Here’s a shocker: in all three debates thus far, the moderator gave the #Democratic candidate more time. Funny coincidence. . . ;) #tcot

— Stephen England (@stephenmengland) October 18, 2012

We know he doesn’t speak well, but slow? Sorry, lapdogs, can’t use that pitiful excuse there, either.

Obama may have been talking slower… it simply takes a bit longer when you make shit up rather than deal with facts.#tcot #war
