VP Debate A Predetermined Folly

This is a travesty! Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck have been saying frequently that journalism is dead. I'm sure that none of us want to believe that. None of us want to accept the fact that the so-called "journalists" who are "reporting" on events in the current financial crisis and the Presidential campaigns might actually have already decided upon whom they wish to see in the White House come January. I think this makes it painfully clear.
VP debate moderator Ifill releasing pro-Obama book

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."
Clearly, Gwen Ifill should be pulled from moderation of the upcoming Vice Presidential debate tomorrow evening. She has crossed the line from independent journalist to committed, supportive biographer. She clearly stands in support of Barack Obama and, if she is allowed to sit in moderation of tomorrow night's debate, will certainly deliver the tough questions to Governor Palin while coddling Joe Biden, in favor of her beloved Obama.

This kind of one-sided, partisan reporting should not be allowed in our society. Surely, she has freedom of speech and can speak her mind about whatever topic she chooses. But she should not be sponsored in doing so in a forum that is intended to help voters become more aware of the candidates. This is a travesty!
