Flap Editorial: Replace Gwen Ifill

U.S. vice presidential debate moderator Gwen Ifill sits in a wheelchair after injuring her ankle as she takes part in a walk through at the debate site in St. Louis, Missouri October 1, 2008. The debate between Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Joseph Biden (D-DE) and Republican vice presidential candidate Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is scheduled for October 2

Despite John McCain’s weak sauce “Life is not fair” comment, Gwen Ifill should be replaced as tonight’s moderator.

Ifill has a FINANCIAL conflict of interest and what is most disturbing is that she did not see fit to disclose her book deal to the Commission on Presidential Debates.

Ifill said Wednesday that she hasn’t even written her chapter on Obama for the book “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama,” which is to be published by Doubleday on Jan. 20, 2009, the day a new president is inaugurated.

“I’ve got a pretty long track record covering politics and news, so I’m not particularly worried that one-day blog chatter is going to destroy my reputation,” Ifill said. “The proof is in the pudding. They can watch the debate tomorrow night and make their own decisions about whether or not I’ve done my job.”

Dump her….

Joe Biden

Say Good Bye Gwen Ifill

Say Good Night Gracie.

What a disgrace that the Commission on Presidential debates did NOT vett Gwen Ifill as the moderator of the Thursday Vice Presidential debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden. Or did they decide this is NOT a conflict of interest?

Michelle has more.

Ask the Commission on Presidential Debates if she will acknowledge her conflict of interest: 202-872-1020.

And here’s the e-mail address of Janet H. Brown, Executive Director of the Debates Commission:

If you think Ifill is NOT biased watch this video and remove all doubt.

Gwen Ifill should be replaced post-haste as tomorrow night’s debate. Blame it on her ankle or a “conflict of interest” but remove her.
