ABC correspondent Martha Raddatz asked 19 pro Obama questions and only 12 pro Republican questions...

Debate moderator and ABC correspondent Martha Raddatz was fairly balanced during the foreign policy part of the debate. She helped Biden tag team Ryan on the domestic policy part. 

Via Washington Secrets:
A vice presidential debate analysis from a conservative media watchdog group found that debate moderator and ABC correspondent Martha Raddatz asked 19 pro-Obama questions Thursday night, but just 12 skewed Republican, a 40 percent to 25 percent margin.
“Any moderator whose weighted questions favor liberals over conservatives by a 19-12 margin is biased,” charged Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center.
But he was quick to add that Raddatz, a virtual expert on the Iraq and Afghan war and also a White House correspondent, showed no bias in her specialty.
“The record shows it is not as bad as conservatives think, and not as good as liberals are stating,” he said.
According to their analysis provided to Secrets, of the 48 questions and follow-ups from the moderator, “19, or 40 percent, incorporated a pro-Obama/Biden or anti-Romney/Ryan agenda, vs. 25 percent or 12 questions that skewed in the other direction and 35 percent or 17 questions were neutral or purely information-seeking,” they said.
