The conservative blogosphere is railing over the selection of journalist Gwen Ifill as the moderator of tonight’s vice presidential debate because she is writing a book that includes material on Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. Ifill said Wednesday that she hasn’t even written her chapter on Obama for the book “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama,” which is to be published by Doubleday on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, 2009.
“I’ve got a pretty long track record covering politics and news, so I’m not particularly worried that one-day blog chatter is going to destroy my reputation,” Ifill said yesterday, according to the Associated Press. “The proof is in the pudding. They can watch the debate tomorrow night and make their own decisions about whether or not I’ve done my job.”


Janet Jackson’s brother Randy Jackson tells that his little sis was hospitalized this week due to vertigo, a disturbance of equilibrium that causes dizziness or the sensation of falling. “Janet is doing okay, she suffers from vertigo,” Randy was quoted as saying. Her camp, however, has yet to release an official cause for her hospitalization Monday night just hours before a show in Montreal. Reps for the singer did say she will resume her Rock Witchu tour on Saturday in Greensboro, North Carolina after having to postpone three dates.
Jackson’s Monday show at Montreal’s Bell Centre was postponed when she “got suddenly ill during her sound check,” read a statement from her camp. She was rushed to Royal Victoria Hospital and released two hours later. Her subsequent stops in Boston on Wednesday and Philadelphia tonight, have also been postponed. Last week, Jackson called off a concert in Detroit due to “production restraints,” local media said.


Support for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has reached or surpassed 50 percent for the first time in three critical battleground states according to Quinnipiac University surveys taken over the weekend. The Illinois senator is now leading Republican nominee John McCain in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania – which together offers 68 of the 270 electoral votes needed for victory on Election Day Nov. 4. The new surveys show Obama leading McCain in Florida 51 percent to 43 percent, in Ohio 50 percent to 42 percent and in Pennsylvania 54 percent to 39 percent. Since 1960, no president has been elected without winning two of those three states. Pollsters attributed Obama’s bounce to the public’s general approval of his debate performance, antipathy toward GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and heightened confidence in the Illinois senator’s ability to handle the current economic crisis.

Avid Barack Obama supporter Jay-Z has scheduled two free shows this weekend in an effort to encourage voter registration before Monday’s deadline in Michigan and Florida. The first show takes place on Saturday at the Cobo Arena in Detroit, according to Detroit’s WWJ TV. Anyone who’s at least 18-years-old can pick up one free ticket at Obama campaign offices throughout southeast Michigan to attend the Detroit show and an accompanying rally.
The rapper will travel to Miami on Sunday for a free show at Bayfront Park, reports the Miami Herald. Florida is likely to be a crucial state for both Obama and Republican Senator John McCain. The Obama campaign estimated that it has registered 135,000 voters in the state to date.
