Only problem she made the opposite argument -- days before against the president's top campaign advisor.
Media bias here let's talk to Tucker Carlson of Fox News contributor and editor in chief of the daily caller bad -- -- weren't too well good morning when you heard her saying that what did you think.
I thought this was the defining moment in the debate I was shocked that I know can't.
I worked there I was I was stunned you mean literally couldn't have a more disruptive moment and -- -- -- you couldn't more clearly helped one.
Candidate against the other and this is the kind of moment where.
You know people's careers destroyed in it in a normal world you couldn't work and journals and get after -- supplement that she was supposed to just moderate but instead she was -- fact checker and you do fact checking afterwards and -- interest in without facts by the -- yet because she had to walk back.

It and the thing is when you when you look at them with their presence -- the day after in the Rose Garden he was clearly talking about an act of terror generically.
-- and so you know the White House now is in the campaign they're doing their best despite -- -- -- they.
Argument in public for two full weeks that this I mean you'd covered your show every -- this video.
In the spontaneous reaction of a mob is to blame for the city argues an act of terror.
One of the story right after the debate was the fact that she did allow the -- the United States about 10% more talk time.
But as somebody went back and looked at all the tape and realize that Sheehan erupted Mitt Romney 28 times she -- Barack Obama nine times she erupted the Republican three times more than the president there's really no other way to spends -- twenty times more give -- 50% more time.
But don't come off in the middle of a sentence at at the most important moment of the debate in order to help the president mean that was really.
Anything happen are.
If -- still working journalists and next week it we'll tell you everything you need to know about the deep corruption of the American Media where are.
