Henderson, N.C.: As a PBS bigwig, can you explain the reasoning behind Frank Lutz serving as an analyst for PBS following the Democratic Debate. Why does your network expect this known Republican pollster (author of terms like “death tax” and “healthy forests initiative”) to fairly evaluate candidates from a party that he has spent much of his professional life fighting against? Do y’all have any comparable Democratic pollsters signed up for the Republican debate? Thank you for your time and I hope you have a good day.
Gwen Ifill: I see Media Matters has gotten through to you too. I am always impressed how good you all are at following their mass e-mailed instructions word for word.
There really is a species of WAmediaTB unable to countenance any kind of a challenge to his or her authority. I don’t care who e-mailed instructions to who, the only thing that matters is if the question’s valid. But these people are obsessed with name tags, and if you’re not wearing the right color, you need to STFU. This whining passed infuriating some ways back and now it’s just embarrassing.
