I've Had It With The Double Standard

Tonight we find out if Governor Palin has what it takes vs. Sen. Biden in the much awaited VP debate. We expect that when candidates have a debate that no one goes in with advantages such as knowing the questions in advance or having a moderator that is biased to one of the candidates or their respective point of view. These seem like reasonable things, right? Well apparently that's not the case tonight. The debate tonight is to be moderated by PBS regular Gwen Ifill. Ms. Ifill has not been totally honest with the debate commission which is suppose to vet these moderators to ensure that these moderators have no "dog in the hunt." It was learned just yesterday that Ms. Ifill does in fact have a "dog in the hunt" one with dollar signs infact. Ms. Ifill is writing a book that will be released on inauguration day. The book titled "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama" clearly shows who Ms. Ifill favors. When conservatives ask for an explanation, they were harshly criticized for questioning Ms. Ifill's objectiveness.

If someone in the process of writing a pro McCain book were tapped for debate moderation, we'd see a very different media, one that would go on an absolute rampage. The double standards that we continually see is so disturbing that it's ridiculous. There are so many members of the media that constantly show cowardice, hypocrisy, and seemingly never ending series of disingenuous statements and actions. This is why many print media outlets are loosing readers every print cycle. Americans have spoken and they have had enough, which is why Fox News dominated in 9 of the 10 categories for news according to recent viewer stats.

Well it's time for the debate, lets see what happens.
