No debate: Ifill not impartial moderator

Michelle Malkin exposes that Thursday night's debate moderator, Gwen Ifill of PBS, has a pro-Obama book coming out in January. And she just penned a puff piece on the Obamas in Essence Magazine. And her reporting on Sarah Palin at the Republican National Convention was clearly derisive, drawing many complaints.

In other words, how in the heck did she get picked as a non-partial moderator?

In an imaginary world where liberal journalists are held to the same standards as everyone else, Ifill would be required to make a full disclosure at the start of the debate. She would be required to turn to the cameras and tell the national audience that she has a book coming out on January 20, 2009 รข€“ a date that just happens to coincide with the inauguration of the next president of the United States. The title of Ifill's book? "Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama." Nonpartisan my foot.

Malkin makes a convincing case. Read it all. And watch the embedded video.
