Gwen breaks a leg

Just kidding….PBS’ Gwen Ifill has broken her ankle after tripping and falling down stairs at her home last night, a NewsHour insider tells TVNewser. We’re told Ifill had been walking up a staircase, carrying research related to her moderating duties at Thursday’s Vice Presidential debate in St. Louis, when she took a wrong step.

If you will recall Gwen was the one that asked Vice President Chaney about the affect of HIV on Black women in the last VP debate. You know Jim Lehrer would not have asked that question.

Gwen says that despite the broken ankle she plans to soldier on. The whole world will be watching to see what Joe Biden and Sarah Palin do on Thursday.

Sen. John McCain says he is confident PBS reporter Gwen Ifill will “do a totally objective job” moderating Thursday’s vice presidential debate despite authoring a new book that is reportedly favorable toward Sen. Barack Obama.
