Columbia Journalism Review: Ifill Should Not Moderate Debate

Even the Columbia Journalism Review concedes that PBS's Gwen Ifill has a conflict of interest that interferes with her ability to moderate tonight's vice presidential debate, according to Hotair.

It's one thing for reporters to grow misty-eyed with love for Barack Obama. Ifill crossed the line because she has a pecuniary interest in an Obama victory: her new book -- to be released on Inauguration Day -- is entitled "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama."

Even the CJR recognizes that Ifill won't sell as many copies if (against all odds) January 20 heralds the Age of McCain.
