the moderator for tomorrow's vice presidential debate, ABC News reporter Martha Raddatz, hosted President Obama as a guest at her 1991 wedding to the man who would later become Obama's FCC commissioner, Julius Genachowski.

The press isnt even trying to be impartial anymore are they?

Well Romney had better get used to it because if he wins, the press is going to dog every action and decision of his.

I think Roms can handle it though.

This should be no surprise to anyone. The inside the beltway crowd all swim in the same social circles.


I have this fantasy.


Someday I hope to see a Republican president, during a White House press conference, say "Sergeant escort that reporter off the grounds smartly."

Then said reporter get dragged by the collar and tossed roughly onto Pennsylvania Ave and ordered never to return.


One can only hope.

Is this really news?

Julius Genachowski was a classmate of Obama's and notes editor at Harvard Law Review when Obama was it's President.

They married in 91 and divorced in 97, two years before Raddatz joined ABC News.

I don't have a problem with it. She isn't a practicing lawyer and may never have taken a course in ethics wherein mundane things like disclosure and conflicts of interest. Surely, she disclosed that he had attended her wedding and that her former husband had a political appointment by Mr. Obama.

If there is a problem, it was caused by the Republican camp who, understanding her background and her disclosures, have no problem with her being a moderator. You have to understand that the Republican camp knew all this and will use it only if Ryan doesn't do well in the debate.

ABC spokesman says almost the entire Harvard Law Review attended the wedding. Daily Caller asks for names of those on Harvard Law Review that attended for verification when they know 70 people were on HLR. They get one name from ABC. They ask for names again, no response.

Obama appoints the ex-husband to FCC?

I see no problem here as long as the moderator gives a public announcement at the beginning of the debate stating that Obama attended her wedding in the past. Full disclosure and all that. I see commentators on news shows making those announcements frequently. She will do the right thing.

This. In spite of his many gaffes, Joe Biden has always been able to talk his way out of stuff. I suspect there's a good chance Ryan is in over his head on this one (not that I'm saying anything bad about Ryan, he's just swimming with a great white).

GOP should ask her to recuse herself: "Have you no decency, ma'am? Have you no shame?"

ETA: The questions will probably be like:

"Sen Ryan, how do you respond to all of the lies told by your running mate?"
