PBS CEO Paula Kerger refused to defend PBS host Jim Lehrers debate performance, even failing to push back against the idea that Lehrer is too old and too white for the job.
It was a very complicated debate structure, and you saw that I think in the debate last night, Kerger said yesterday on CNN when asked to evaluate Lehrer.
CNNs Carol Costello then asked whether Lehrer should have had the job in the first place. There was criticism when Jim Lehrer was initially named to be a moderator. People said: oh, another white guy; hes too old to be doing this; we live in a new world we dont need an old-fashioned journalist doing these things any longer.

Your (former) friends in the drive-by media
so you ask a question ,then look at a stop watch ?
Like they could find an objective minority “journ-o-list”?
The commie ‘RATS are disappointed that Jim didn’t pull their “messiah’s” chestnuts out of the fire. What good is the national “media” if they aren’t going to back the commie ‘RAT candidate?
Paula Kerger is too old and too white to run PBS. They should replace her with a black female lesbian disabled jewish person.
Heh, Lehrer’s really being attacked because he did not protect Obama more than he did.
Even more so because the people who love to toss the offense around are ridiculously thin skinned themselves.
It is funny to see them use it against a white liberal, though.
I am a believer that the mic should go dead at the end of the person’s time. Three minutes is *NOT* 181 seconds, never an excuse for going over, never.
Geek who wears an ‘atomic clock’ watch and has 20+ years in Toastmasters :-)
At least they are out in the open with their being anti-white. But then again too many conservatives think these anti-whites are great moral people.
Well, we will have another old white fart - Bob Schieffer - moderate a debate, Candy Crowley an overweight white woman who likey enjoys the smell of her own farts, and....I forgot the last.
Hmmmm....our team won by 4 touchdowns and it’s the ref’s fault? Though I, too, think the microphone should just go dead at the end of the allotted time. That would establish some rigid discipline.
Agree....tired of it. Racist and ignorant....and it tries to hitch a negative feeling to the very term.
ugh.. helen thomas- that would set the ratings back-
What they really wanted from Jim:
Jim to Romney- “is it true- are you a pedofile?”
Jim to o’bama- “where do you find all the time to
do these Great things for our poor!”
Jim to Romney- “were you not arrested for laundering
money for the drug cartels?”
Jim to O’bama- “your wife and children are lovely!
why havn’t you been nominated for
father of the year!”
unfortunately- Jim ate up all his time GIVING ANSWERS to O’bummer- which O’bummer fumbled anyway!
So, it is only fair a 25% Black Lesbian be given a shot.
More like the announcers fault. They really are mad that Lehrer didn’t help Obama more. I bet they don’t make that mistake again. The next one will be friendlier to Obama.
Andrea Mitchell perhaps. The media will begin promoting a partisan “journalist” as “fair” soon. Then you will know.
So much better in 2008 when a black woman from PBS moderated after writing a book about the Obama campaign with a street date of 1/20/2009. Naw, she didn’t have a vested interest in seeing Obama win. Not at all. Wanna buy a bridge?
All the more reason to DEFUND PBS. The only thing I’d miss is Elmo.
