VP Debate Moderator Gwen Ifill tainted?

'Journalist' Ifill has a Financial interest in outcome of debate

From Michelle Malkin comes this shocking (not really) expose of the moderator of the VP debate, Gwen Ifill from PBS, who apparently has a financial interest in the outcome of the debate: a book to be published on inauguration day 2009.

Despite the protestations of her colleagues that she will be fair, Ifill has appeared on numerous radio and TV talk shows over the past several months to cash in on her access to the Obama campaign. She recently penned a fawning cover story on the Obamas for Essence magazine that earned much buzz. The title? “The Obamas: Portrait of an American Family.” A sample of Ifill’s hard-hitting investigative journalism, illustrated with Kennedyesque photos of the Obamas and children posing at home on the backporch and by the piano: “Barack Obama is sitting in the back of his rented luxury campaign bus with its granite counters and two flat-screen TVs. The Illinois senator’s arms are wrapped around his wife, Michelle, whom he doesn’t get to see much these days. At this very moment he is, of all things, singing.”

Spread the word. The public deserves to know about this.

Let's hope Sarah'cuda starts the debate with "Gwen, congratulations on the publishing of your new book on Mr. Obama. I'm sure we're all looking forward to it being published next January." Not likely.

Why is the McCain campaign taking this lying down??
UPDATE: McCain said he's concerned, but thinks Ifill will do a professional job.
UPDATE: has the story.
