Weekly Standard: Gwen Ifill’s Impartiality

Weekly Standard

Gwen Ifill’s Impartiality

So it turns out Gwen Ifill never told the Commission on Presidential Debates about her book Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, which is to be released on Inauguration Day. When she’s asked if her book creates a conflict of interest, Ifill suggests that such concerns might be motivated by racism.

But, as Andy McCarthy demonstrates, Ifill and her colleagues at PBS have been quite concerned about conflicts of interest involving public figures.

Of course, the main concern with Ifill’s moderating tonight’s debate is not merely that she’s a liberal, but that she stands to make a tidy profit if Obama wins the election.
