If you have not read Gwen Ifill on Imus in the New York Times, you have missed a great piece. But nothing was better than watching her on Meet the Press. Poor Tim Russert kept trying to get her to say that Imus is not a bad guy, that all of those journalists who went on Imus' show were not thoughtless and complicit, and that Imus should be able to have his show. Ifill was not buying. She held her ground, spoke out clearly, and wouldn't be swayed.
I have always been impressed with her, but her performance on MTP was just extraordinary. I can't find a way to email her directly, so this is the best I can do.
Take some time and watch her in action. It is worth it!
