Why You Need to Read Publisher’s Catalogs

Conservative commentators are objecting to the choice of Gwen Ifill as moderator for tonight’s debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin because she is writing a book, The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.

As Keith Olbermann pointed out on his show last night, there should have been no confusion on this issue. Waving a copy of the Doubleday catalog, he said the book was listed in it weeks before both sides agreed to Ifill as the moderator.

Just one more reason to read publishers catalogs.
