On his show Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh said that CNN News anchor Candy Crowley, who moderated last night's presidential debate, "committed an act of journalistic terror."

Limbaugh was discussing the initial polls released by both CBS and CNN directly after the debate that seemed to conclude that Pres. Obama was the winner.  Limbaugh then said that Crowley later had to eat crow when the pundits began dissecting the internals of the polls like "who looked like a leader."

Limbaugh said that the internals showed that last night's debate was "devastating for Obama."

"Candy Crowley had to go back and eat crow on CNN.  In a real world, she would have committed career suicide last night-in the real world.  In the media world I grew up in her career would be finished-won't be now because she gave it her all for the good guys; she gave it all for the right side," said Limbaugh.

Rush continued:  Crowley "committed an act of journalistic terror or malpractice last night. If there were any journalistic standards, what she did last night would have been the equivalent of blowing up her career like a suicide bomber; but there aren't any journalistic standards anymore."
