All I know about her is she's one of the half dozen manure spreading leftists who haunt ABC News radio newsroom.

I think its a great idea to make the moderators part of the debate story, though.

hehe

The usual suspects will be along claiming she’s a Jew - she’s not. She is one of the innumerable pass-around sluts of the left and likes to bed Jews.

Something about the wording of this isn’t right. It implies that this guy, Julius, is her son when, according to his wiki page, Martha is his ex-wife. Not his son. Right? Or am I losing it?

from link in post #10

Mr. Genachowski is part of the founding group of New Resource Bank, a commercial San Francisco-based bank that opened in 2006, targeting the clean-tech, renewable energy, organic food and similar sectors, the country’s first ‘green’ bank. He is on the Board of Directors of Common Sense Media, and has served on the Board of Advisors of Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2).

Before joining IAC, Mr. Genachowski was Chief Counsel to Chairman Reed Hundt of the Federal Communications Commission. He has served as a law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter and, before that, to retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. Mr. Genachowski worked in Congress on the staff of the Select Committee investigating the Iran-Contra Affair and also for then-U.S. Representative, now Senator, Charles E. Schumer.

Why do we have a liberal on the communist edge of things anywhere near moderating a presidential debate? Is the GOP stupid?

To be clear, Raddatz was born in Idaho and grew up in Salt Lake City as a self-described Protestant. She dropped out of the University of Utah and moved to Boston, where she was linked to NBC’s Brian Williams. Her story from there is more well-known.

It's not in her googlography, but Martha Raddatz was Martha Bradlee when she worked local news in Boston and was married to Benjamin Bradlee Jr., former deputy managing editor of the Boston Globe and son of legendary Washington Post editor's son.

Ben Sr. is still alive and only 91. I always assumed he died when Jason Robards, Jr. did, but apparently he's still hanging on (though he may actually have died and third wife Sally Quinn didn't get around to reporting it).

Yes, her current husband is Tom Gjelten. Her ex-husband, according to his wiki page, is Julius Genachowski. She is not his mother. Read the right-hand column under his photo, under “Spouse(s)”. It says “Martha Raddatz (divorced)”.

Did Raddatz ever graduate from College? and so she was screwing Brian Williams years ago? The Incest is just mind boogling on the Left! At least, we don’t have to be concerned about meeting any of the Left for Eternity in Heaven! May their Souls burn for Eternity in HELL! They sure have earned that judgment!

We all know Raddatz is at least as ugly and dumb as Helen Thomas, so it appears she uses her open legs for personal gain! so to speak! She sure can’t claim it’s her brain and intellect! :-(! Really Pathetic!

Well, the best I can say is that she's a little better looking than Helen Thomas but not quite as attractive as Susan Ostrich.

Marital, personal ties link Obama administration to Commission on Presidential Debates
12:11 AM 08/23/2012

EXCERPT

ABC Senior Foreign Correspondent Martha Raddatz, whose role as moderator was announced on August 13, was previously married to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski — an Obama appointee.

Genachowki and Raddatz were married in 1991, the same year he graduated from Harvard Law School. Their marriage ended in 1997; the two have a son together. Raddatz does not report on the FCC for ABC News.

Genachowski and classmate Barack Obama worked together on the Harvard Law Review, Genachowski as notes editor and Obama as the publication’s president. They graduated in the same class.

(snip)

The Commission’s other Obama administration ties include several personal friends and political supporters of President Obama who are among its leaders. (RELATED: Progressive-leaning panel picks moderators for presidential debates)

Commission board member Newton Minow, who was FCC chairman under President John F. Kennedy, was an early and prominent supporter of Obama’s 2008 campaign.

It was during his time as a summer associate in 1989 at Minow’s Chicago law firm, Sidley & Austin LLP, that Obama was introduced to the influential members of Chicago’s political scene. Minow made many of those introductions himself.

Minow, a former chairman of the Carnegie Foundation, the Public Broadcasting Service and the RAND Corporation, is a prominent member of the Democratic political elite in Chicago.

“I introduced him to many people when he decided to enter public life,” Minow told TheDC in an email.

Her son works for Obama??
They don't see a conflict of interest here?
