More liberal bias in the media.

Gwen Ifill is set to host the VP debate tomorrow night. 

Did you know she has a book due out on inauguration day?  Not just a book, a pro-Obama book.

Hmm, what bias could she possibly have that might influence the debate?

This woman will make money if Obama wins the election.

This is a horrible idea, and I hope they do something about it.  Even if Ifill is fair (and that’s a big if), you know everyone is going to scrutinize every comment and question.



  1. I agree. This is absolutely ludicrous!

  2. I don’t know how I feel about this.

    In one breath, Ifill has said herself, “I still don’t know if he’ll be a good president. I’m still capable of looking at his pros and cons in a political sense.”

    And to quote Mccain, “I think that Gwen Ifill is a professional, and I think that she will do a totally objective job because she is a highly respected professional.”

    I really wouldn’t say the book is a “pro-Obama” book. While she is clearly an Obama supporter, from what I can tell, the book is more about the progress African Americans have made in politics — yes, this means Obama, but also Colin Powell, Jesse Jackson, and some other key African American politicians.

    While I see your concern that this choice could work in Biden’s favor, I can also see this working in Palin’s. If Ifill tries to overcompensate this “bias” by being to hard on Biden, this could be beneficial to Palin. Also, if Palin comes out victorious (another big if 🙂 ), it will be “in spite of” a moderator who did not favor her — thereby helping her cause.

    It’s a tough spot, but I guess the way to avoid any of this was for Ifill to be upfront about her position from the start, even if they would have chosen her anyway.

  3. …but, if you’re going to talk about what’s unfair, what’s bias, and what should be stopped, talk about how tonight’s debate will have shorter question-and-answer segments than those for the presidential nominees and that there will also be much less opportunity for direct exchanges between the running mates.

    Does that seem unbias to you?
