Let’s take a moment to mark the passing of Washington journalist Gwen Ifill.
Washington Week will air a tribute to Ms. Ifill tonight, November 18.
News Hour’s tribute can be viewed here:
The final Washington Week show she moderated was Trump’s comments about women caught on tape as candidates prepare for second debate.
Ms. Ifill’s journalism was a civilized, graceful, determined push for insight. Around her at the Washington Week table she assembled quality journalists in useful, balanced discussions of the week’s political developments.
With the internet and social media fanning partisan and fake news that is having unforeseen and complicated affects on the world, Ms. Ifill’s voice was a touchstone we need.
