Nope, No Conflict of Interest Here

This is Gwen Ifill.

She has written a book titled, Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, which will be available for sale, coincidentally, around the time the next President of the United States is sworn into office.

If the ticket of Barack Obama and Joe Biden prevails in November, she stands to profit handsomely from the sales of this book.

Gwen Ifill is slated to be the "moderator" for tomorrow night's vice presidential debate between Governor Sarah Palin and Senator Joe Biden.

Nope, nothing to see here people.

What conflict of interest?

Just keep staring into the Hopenchange Hypnodisc and everything will be OK.

Link via Hot Air and Michelle Malkin, who saves me the trouble of having to ask today's ORFUQ:

Ifill and her publisher are banking on an Obama/Biden win to buoy her book sales. The moderator expected to treat both sides fairly has grandiosely declared this the “Age of Obama.” Can you imagine a right-leaning journalist writing a book about the “stunning” McCain campaign and its “bold” path to reform timed for release on Inauguration Day – and then expecting a slot as a moderator for the nation’s sole vice presidential debate?
