Most of the people who work in American media are liberals but Martha Raddatz, who will moderate tonight’s Democrat debate has made her love for Hillary Clinton known on more than one occasion.
The Worst Liberal Outbursts from ABC Democratic Debate Moderator Martha Raddatz
ABC’s Martha Raddatz will be a co-moderator (along with ABC World News anchor David Muir) for Saturday night’s Democratic candidate debate in New Hampshire and if her coverage of Hillary Clinton over the years is any guide, viewers shouldn’t expect to many hardballs aimed at the frontrunner.
From praising Clinton’s infamous Benghazi testimony as “charming” and “disarming” to wondering what to call the new grandmother “Maybe Glam-Ma?” Raddatz has shown a soft-spot for the former Secretary of State.
And will Raddatz be reluctant to bring up the latest terrorist attacks, given that after the Ft. Hood shooting in 2009 she was too pre-occupied with framing it in a politically-correct way: “As for the suspect, Nidal Hasan, as one officer’s wife told me, ‘I wish his name was Smith.’”
The ABC News reporter, who hosted Barack Obama as a guest at her 1991 wedding to the man who would later become President Obama’s FCC commissioner Julius Genachowski, has also been on the look out for the Democrat’s “next rising star” in HUD Secretary Julian Castro: “Could he be on a presidential ticket in 2016?”
Watch the video below decide for yourself if Raddatz is capable of being objective.
No bias there, huh?
The Democratic Party debate will air tonight on ABC at 8 PM ET.
