Ex-Clinton staffer pretends objectivity in Trump hatchet job in “This Week” interview
Hillary Clinton booster George Stephanopoulus once again fails to disclose his Clinton cash connection, interviews Donald Trump. Stephanopoulus appears to absolve Trump rally disrupters of any blame in attempting to get the candidate to condemn his own supporters.
Excerpt:“I expected probing questions, similar to the ones I’ve received from Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC, Chris Wallace on Fox News and Frank Sesno on CNN.
“What I did not expect — what no one expected — was the sort of “hidden hand journalism” that has contributed to America’s news media’s crisis of credibility in particular, and Americans’ distrust of the news media more broadly.
“If Stephanopoulos had disclosed his donations to the very foundation I was there to talk about, perhaps it would have put the aggressive posture of his interview with me in context.”
