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.
