7 Thoughts on “The Non-troversy

  1. Doesn’t matter who knew what when. If the moderator was in the midst of writing a book (that, judging from Ifill’s own words, will be a positive one) about McCain, you’d be howling. And rightly so. Ifill also told the AP that she didn’t tell the debate commission about the book.

  2. So you are telling me there wasn’t ONE SINGLE McCain campaign staffer that didn’t know about the book until two days before the VP debate . . . yeah right. You know McCain and Palin may not read much, but I would think that their staffers do. Get a life.

  3. Like I said, it doesn’t matter. Ifill shouldn’t have been asked by the Debate Commission in the first place.

    I’m howling that Tom Brokaw is moderating the next presidential debate, because the McCain campaign INSISTED on it.
    I question his objectivity WAY more than Gwen Ifill’s.

  5. I still don’t get it. I think PBS moderators are some of the fairest in the business. Besides the last I checked, Palin and Biden are both white, so I’m not sure what the bias would be?

    I think it would be great to have Bill O’ and Olbermann moderate a debate together, that would be funny.

  6. 5. Who said anything about racial bias?

    That said, PBS’ Lehrer did fine. He should have just done all of them.

  7. Her book is about 4 black politicians – that’s why I don’t understand the bias.
