It has been confirmed that the McCain camp did not know about VP moderator Gwen Ifill's book which basically predicts Sen. Barack Obama will win the presidency. The controversial book is due to be released on Nov. 4 -- the day of the elections. This, according to Greta Van Susteren on her blog:

I confirmed for us here on GretaWire: the McCain campaign did NOT know about Gwen Ifill’s book (I think I told them when I made my efforts - emails about midnight - to find out!) I am stunned….the campaign (actually both) should have been told before the campaign agreed to have her moderate. It simply is not fair - in law, this would create a mistrial.

The moderator of tomorrow's much-hyped showdown between Senator Joe Biden (D) and Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is putting out a book that promises to "shed new light" on Sen. Barack Obama.

The book's release date is being timed to coincide with the election of this country's new leader on Nov. 4.

Gwen Ifill is confident that Mr. Obama has the election in the bag. But should the moderator of such an important debate show such blatant bias towards one party? Couldn't she wait until after the debate to announce this book of hers?

Apparently, Ifill doesn't care if we know she's biased. She has faced criticism before for not treating candidates of both major parties the same.

During 2004's vice-presidential debate -- which Ifill moderated -- there was an intense exchange between Democrat John Edwards and Republican Dick Cheney.

Cheney asked Ifill for more time to rebut Edwards accusations because 30 seconds wasn't enough.

"Well, that's all you've got!" she snapped at Cheney. Later, Ifill told the Associated Press that the Democrats were "delighted' with her answer.

And viewers of PBS' Washington Week, which Ifill hosts, reported a "look of disgust" on Ifill's face when she reported on Sarah Plain's speech during the Republican National Convention. (Source)
