Gwen Ifill & The Sorry State Of American Journalism

It’s painfully obvious that someone who’s writing a book called, “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama,” especially one that is supposed to come out on inauguration day, has no business moderating a Vice-Presidential debate.

Moreover, the fact that she didn’t “tell the Commission on Presidential Debates about the book,” tells you everything you need to know about Gwen Ifill’s ethics or more aptly, her lack of ethics.

Topping all of this off was Ifill’s sleazy attempt to play the race card,

Ifill questions why people assume that her book will be favorable toward Obama.”Do you think they made the same assumptions about Lou Cannon (who is white) when he wrote his book about Reagan?” said Ifill, who is black. Asked if there were racial motives at play, she said, “I don’t know what it is. I find it curious.”

Know what I find curious? That Ifill is still being allowed to moderate the debate — and for that matter, that she still has a job at PBS after this. Quite frankly, she deserves to be fired for this kind of ethical breach.
