There's a Double Standard Here, But I'm Not Sure What It is

The Commission on Presidential Debates scheduled four debates this year, two moderated by men and two by women. The men, Jim Lehrer and Bob Schieffer, are well-known, long-established, award-winning journalists.

There aren't any female journalists with comparable careers, but there are several - such as Andrea Mitchell and Judy Woodruff - who pack a lot more accomplishment (and name recognition) than Candy Crowley and Martha Raddatz.

Why did the Commission pick top-notch men and third-notch women?
