Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, directly challenged CNN's Candy Crowley on Wednesday over her decision to play instant fact checker on Mitt Romney's answer to a question on Libya during the second presidential debate.
Chaffetz, a regular surrogate for Romney, appeared on CNN's Starting Point and told Crowley "it was not her place" to correct the candidate. He also said: "I happen to believe your assessment was wrong."
In the debate, President Barack Obama said he called the attack in Libya that resulted in the death of four Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, an "act of terror." Romney challenged him on it. And Crowley spoke up to say that, indeed, Obama used the phrase "act of terror" in addressing the attack in a Rose Garden speech.
