Ifill's response

Gwen Ifill responds to questions over her objectivity.  Naturally, the race card is thrown,

Ifill questions why people assume that her book will be favorable toward Obama.

“Do you think they made the same assumptions about Lou Cannon (who is white) when he wrote his book about Reagan?” said Ifill, who is black. Asked if there were racial motives at play, she said, “I don’t know what it is. I find it curious.”

What an dishonest dodge, this isn't about race, no one brought up race. This is about ideology and political views, and whether someone writing a book partly about the "Age of Obama" can be objective.  We know Ifill is liberal, and have known for years.  Given how openly unobjective the media has been this election cycle, the fact that she's liberal and a journalist is enough to give us reason to question her objectivity.  That she's writing a book about Our Lord and Savior makes her doubly suspect.  Don't blame us, Gwen, blame your fellow journalists who can't help but abuse the public trust by rejecting objectivity and becoming Pravda USA for the Democrat Party.

Ifill also declares that Obama will only be a small part of her book...the book that is titled, The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.  Age. of. Obama.
