While reporting on, and aggressively defending the Clinton Foundation from numerous scandals and ethical issues, George Stephanopoulos, the star and poster boy of ABC News, hid his own conflict of interest from viewers. According to Politico, Bill Clinton’s former war room soldier and press secretary, the current anchor of “Good Morning America” and “This Week,” has donated at least $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

ABC's reaction appears to be "much ado . . "

Gee, I'm underwhelmed. The guy was a presidential advisor to the Clintons. Why would he not give their foundation money?

The curious thing is that ABC presents George as a newscaster. Unbiased presentation of news.

Yep. Got it.

Another day for ol' George Stepinonallofus.

It should not surprise anyone though. The vast majority of the news media are nothing more than the left wing corrupt support machine. They will put hillary in the whitehouse GUARANTEED!

That was probably just the entry fee for a chance to moderate a Dem primary debate. Don't forget about all the good that some charity can do with the $750 dollars they will get out of that $75,000.00 donation.

It's so cute watching those that don't understand the media today try to make sense of it.

Did George give the foundation money in order to get inside info? That's a dumb question.

The real question is: Who worked out the deal for George to get inside info and who set the price?

Jack Anderson was once THE insider in DC. He knew what was going on long before anyone else and no one could figure out how he got his info. Nixon hated him since he always seemed to be one step ahead of Nixon.

But his 'scoops' were easy to figure out. He played one side against the other for info and would print info from 'unnamed sources' if he was promised a real story later. if the unnamed source was later proven wrong then it was no big deal. After all, didn't he say it was a rumor?

But it would damage someone or something and then he would get a real scoop on Nixon and look like he knew what was really going on.

It is all a game to these people, and they all know they have to play it if they want to keep their name in lights.

I'm curious about your sig line - are you implying that Breitbart was "silenced" as in silenced by malevolent forces?

As I'm not a consumer of network evening news, so I looked at George's wiki . . . worked for Dukakis . . . Gephart . . . Clinton . . . and although he's the anchor, he is unique in that he is not the chief editor of ABC news.

Just a guess on my part but I would think his access to the Clinton's had something to do with his receiving his position. He is good at what he does, but would not say he is great.

Jenna Bush was hired by NBC. Now and then she does a story, usually a puff piece, but she is a direct line to the Bushies and to an news org that is worth something.
