No Double Standard Here


"Crowley is the first woman in 20 years to moderate a presidential debate. Last week, ABC News' Martha Raddatz was praised by critics for her moderation of the vice presidential debate.

The Dems complaint is normal. We can expect it. Whether the media reports on that complaint, which they did, is when it becomes news. Republicans also had their own complaints it's just that no one cared enough to report it.
