What do the MSM and VP Debate Moderator have in common?

There are two stories in the last couple of days regarding the MSM and the VP Debate Moderator from PBS…..Guess what?  …..are you sitting down?…..

…..They are both, the MSM and moderator, in the tank for Obama and pulling out all of the stops for an Obama victory….

I know that is totally not what anyone was expecting from the MSM nor from a debate moderator from PBS! 🙂

First, this from Instapundit.   An e-mail from a reader working in a major MSM newsroom:

A READER AT A MAJOR NEWSROOM EMAILS: “Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working.” I asked permission to reprint without attribution and it was granted.

“The fix is in and its working”…..I guess you can officially call the MSM dead as journalists….

Just for jollies, and in case you didn’t know that journalists are NOT supposed to be partial when dumpster diving, here are some of the ethics listed in the Journalist’s Creed at the National Press Club website:

  • I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of responsibility, trustees for the public; that acceptance of lesser service than the public service is a betrayal of this trust.
  • I believe that clear thinking, clear statement, accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism.
  • I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true. I believe that suppression of the news, for any consideration other than the welfare of society, is indefensible.

Well, alrighty then….

Next headline, from Drudge:


Well, slap my Grandma….you don’t say….a liberal partisan disguised as a moderator!   But this one, Gwen Ifill, is special…she is actually writing a book featuring none other than Barack Obama….

The book’s release date?  January 20,2009, the day that the next President will be inaugurated. 

From WND:

The moderator of Thursday’s vice-presidential debate is writing a book to come out about the time the next president takes the oath of office that aims to “shed new light” on Democratic candidate Barack Obama and other “emerging young African American politicians” who are “forging a bold new path to political power.”

Gwen Ifill of the Public Broadcasting Service program “Washington Week” is promoting “The Breakthrough,” in which she argues the “black political structure” of the civil rights movement is giving way to men and women who have benefited from the struggles over racial equality.

Never mind that Obama is half white and half black….and he never set foot in mainland America until after he was around 20 years old…..but I digress.

So, expect a fun evening on Wednesday when the exchange may look something like this:

Gwen Ifill:   Sarah Barracuda, we know that Barack Obama has been down for the struggle, he’s black, and he knows how to read a teleprompter.  Therefore we all understand that he is fully qualified for the office of President.  Please, pray tell, explain why you, Miss Prissy, think you are qualified to be Vice President when your only qualifications include City Council Member, Mayor of Wasilla, Chair of the Oil and Gas Compact Commission, and Governor of Alaska, the largest state in the Union?  You have 10 seconds.

Sarah:  I have years of executive exper……

Gwen: Ok…fine.  Now, Senator Biden, in your OWN WORDS …..

Sarah:   Excuse me….Joe, Stand up….oh, GOD LOVE YA, Joe….now, no plagiarizing please….

Gwen:  Enough, Miss Alaska….you had your 10 seconds…keep your anti-abortion butt quiet until I tell you to talk… now give the gentleman from Delaware a turn….Senator Biden, can you please, finally, use your superior Democrat intellect and foreign policy skills and tell everyone the correct spelling of “potato”?

Senator Biden:   P-O-T-A-T-O…..that reminds me of story ……

    The nation already is skeptical about the fairness and objectivity of the mainstream media regarding election coverage … so, why in the world is Gwen Ifill the debate moderator, when she is writing a book about Obama … especially since her book sales would increase if Obama/Biden win? The moderator in a debate … especially one of this importance and magnitude … should be seen as completely fair, objective and above reproach. This is a terrible choice, and could easily have been remedied by choosing from hundreds of other more objective potential moderators. I can imagine the outcry if Michelle Malkin, or Ann Coulter was chosen as the moderator for the first Vice Presidential debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden. FURTHERMORE … Everyone knows that Roland Martin is in the tank for Obama … and regarding his call for Palin to either ‘put up, or shut up’ … for millions of Americans, we still feel that Obama never adequately explained why he chose to spend TWENTY YEARS, yes TWENTY YEARS, in Jeremiah Wright’s anti-American, racist, black liberation church, which gave a life time achievement award to Louis Farrakhan, and Obama only quit the church due to public outrage and personal ambition.

  2. Howard….exactly right!
    Thanks for commenting.

  3. […] its not too late for him to do the same to liberal Obama-loving Gwen Ifill who is moderator the VP debate […]

  4. Guess you are wrong. There was no bias in the debate and McCain knew that Ifill was going to the be moderator beforehand, AND he knew she was writing a book.

    If you want real bias, go watch Fox News.

  5. Tim,
    While I think Ifill did do a better job than her partisan backtround shows, she still didn’t bother to ask some questions of Palin that might exhibit her strengths in energy and executive leadership.

    In addition, whose to say that the firestorm caused by her Obama-supporting book didn’t temper her questions a bit?

    To the point of this post, Ifill is clearly a partisan in the mode of several pundits on Fox News to the right.
    If Hannity, O’Reilly, Bill Kristol, or Fred Barnes were asked to moderate, you and the Left would yell PARTISAN from the top of you lungs.
