<p>In the 48 hours following President Obama&rsquo;s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, CBS correspondent <strong>Jan Crawford had</strong> <strong>a tough time deciding whether he was a &ldquo;moderate&rdquo; pick to appease Republicans or a &ldquo;solid liberal vote&rdquo; to satisfy left-wing activists. In the end, she concluded he was both.</strong></p>

<p>Just hours before the President named Garland on Wednesday, Crawford appeared on <em>CBS This Morning</em> to label the chief D.C. Appeals Court judge <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/kyle-drennen/2016/03/16/abc-cbs-pre…; target="_blank">&ldquo;no liberal firebrand&rdquo; and a &ldquo;compromise.&rdquo;</a> On Thursday, Crawford reiterated he was <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2016/03/17/networks-…; target="_blank">&ldquo;a moderate, a centrist.&rdquo;</a> She admitted he was &ldquo;certainly liberal,&rdquo; but not a &ldquo;liberal flame-thrower.&rdquo;</p>
