More on Gwen Ifill

Matt thinks that this whole book thing will make Ifill soft on Palin. Of course we have no way of knowing that pre-debate. But I think there's at least as much a chance of Ifill going harder on Palin than going softer. Look, I do my share of MSM-bashing, but I think it's unfair to presume that Ifill will bend here. We like to knock the Washington press corps for falling into the narrative trap, but we should be careful to not fall into that same trap. Besides, as I said before, I think Ifill is one of the last people to go for this. The idea that she sees something to gain in appeasing Michelle Malkin seems unlikely.
