Gwen Ifill did not tell the Commission on Presidential Debates about her book

Gwen Ifill  has politicized her role by choosing to not disclose her authorship of a book, “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.”  There is simply no question that she should have disclosed this potential conflict of interest and MSM stories like this one from CNN completely ignore this point.

In the eighth paragraph of the Associated Press article it states Ifill “she did not tell the Commission on Presidential Debates about the book.”

The Commission on Presidential Debates is responsible for choosing moderators and organizing debate terms between the candidates and/or their campaigns and as of now, they had no comment for the Associated Press and other media organizations that have tried to contact them regarding this issue.

Update: Apparently the Columbia Journalism Review agrees that Ifill has a conflict of interest.
