Cousins Gwen Ifill and Sherrilyn Ifill share more than DNA and high-profile careers.
Both are frequent targets of the right.
For each, the criticism comes with the job.
Gwen Ifill is moderator and managing editor of the PBS program “Washington Week” and co-anchor and managing editor of the “PBS NewsHour.”
She previously worked for NBC News, the New York Times and the Washington Post.
Sherrilyn Ifill is president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
She used to work for conservatives’ favorite bogeyman, George Soros, heading up U.S. programs at the Open Society Foundations.
