Candy Crowley Denies Reversing Herself on “Acts of Terror” Fact Check

CNN’s Candy Crowley this morning defended her fact check of Mitt Romney during last night’s debate, and denied that she had taken back her comments in a post-event interview. GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan and conservative commentators claimed the Crowley was reversing herself when she told CNNlast night that Romney was “right in the main.”

Crowley told Soledad O’Brien this morning that she was not backtracking. “what I said on that stage is the same thing I said to you actually last night.”

“The question was — we got so stuck on that ‘act of terror.’ Now, did the
President say this was an act of terror? The president did not say — he
said ‘these acts of terror,’ but he was in the Rose Garden to talk
about Benghazi, so I don’t think that’s a leap.”
