Gwen Ifill’s New Look Is Fantastic

March 23, 2016

I want to do a well deserved shout-out this evening to one of America’s top and brightest broadcasters. While watching NewsHour on PBS (the Supreme Court case in particular) I was struck yet again by the ability of Gwen Ifill to so illuminate the world and the issues of our time. I simply love her. A few years back when there was an on opening for the host on “Meet The Press” I had hoped she would land the position. But to not have her probing questions and reporting skills nightly would have meant one of our most cerebral journalists would have had reduced air time. Her work on PBS allows us to better understand the facts of the story, and the dynamics behind the headlines. She is a solid and substantive reporter and anchor. And her new glasses and hair style are fantastic!

    We so agree Pulike!! The very best American TV news has to offer can be found on the NewsHour and PBS in general. Thanks for adding your comment.

    She Rocks, yes! In fact all of The Newshour host are superb. The do the best job on TV. It would have been good to have anyone of them as a debate moderator, though Martha Radditz did well at keeping the focus and times on tract–and especially Kerinf the candidates from talking over each other.

    Love Gwen, love her new look. This PBS Newshour is one the best program on TV, and the second best is Washington Week. The intelligence displayed on these two shows surpasses anything else I have watched on TV this past year.

    I go back to the days when the show was 30 minutes and called the MacNeil/Lehrer Report. Have been watching since a teenager–still love it and find it the most news oriented program to be found each weeknight on television. I love Gwen but really still miss MacNeil.

    The great new look is very becoming and welcome. Perhaps a make-over and a new unbiased approach to moderating PBS’ iconic News Hour is also forthcoming? I miss the less biased approached of yesteryear! It has a clearly liberal bent now, even though Gwen claims otherwise.
