Gwen Ifill Breaks Ankle (!) but will host the debate

Gwen Ifill, my second favorite news anchor and interviewer has apparently broken her ankle. According to mediabistro:

First On TVNewser: PBS’ Gwen Ifill has broken her ankle after tripping and falling down stairs at her home last night, a NewsHour insider tells TVNewser. We’re told Ifill had been walking up a staircase, carrying research related to her moderating duties at Thursday’s Vice Presidential debate in St. Louis, when she took a wrong step.

We are also told the show will go on: Ifill is planning to travel to Missouri for the big event.

That sucks a whole lot, but goes to show only a PBS anchor would trip carrying a mountain of research. Good luck Gwen! The show must go on!

  2. Are you sure she didn’t trip over that pro-Obama book she is writing? Or maybe she tripped over her lack of journalistic ethics in writing the book and at the same time pretending to be a non-partisan professional in moderating the VP debate… She is clearly in Obama’s hip pocket and should be ashamed and should also step down immediately from moderating on Thursday evening.
