ABC News's George Stephanopoulos: 'I sometimes chafe at some of the ... - Washington Post (blog)

"...Such disclosures would have helped enormously as Stephanopoulos grilled Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash, a book that examines overlaps between the interests of Clinton Foundation donors and the activities of the State Department under the leadership of Hillary Clinton. The ABC News talent pursued Schweizer with all the vigor of, well, a Clinton Foundation donor.In a March 3 interview on WNYC, Alec Baldwin, host of Here's the Thing, spoke with Stephanopoulos about the credibility crisis facing suspended NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. We all make mistakes, said Stephanopoulos. I don't think I would do what he did in that case, but we all make mistakes and we all realize it can go like that. In another part of the discussion on Williams, Baldwin referred to reports that the NBC News anchor was in this perch where there was no one to say no' to him. To that, Stephanopoulos responded, Isn't that the danger in all life, though? He moved on: In my job, I sometimes chafe at some of the restrictions or the various checks and balances but, you know, it's there for a reason, said Stephanopoulos...." see full article

Is George Stephanopoulos A Journalist? - Daily Caller
"...Well, of course not. He's a shill for the Democrats, just as he's always been. A lot of us have known it ever since ABC hired him, and yet nothing was done. On the contrary, ABC kept promoting him, until he's now their public face. Obviously, he thought he could do anything he wanted. He thought he was bulletproof...." see full article

George Stephanopoulos has forfeited all trust as a newsman - New York Post
"...He made two unforgivable decisions: He didn't tell his bosses about the donations and he didn't tell viewers that he had given money to the foundation even as he reported on it and the Clintons. At most news organizations, either would be a fireable offense. Either would be a fireable offense at ABC for someone less important...." see full article

George Stephanopoulos a Member of Clinton Global Initiative in 2010, 2011 - Breitbart News
"...George Stephanopoulos' connections to the Clinton Foundation may be more substantial than he has so far admitted. An archived page of the Clinton Global Initiative website lists George Stephanopoulos as a notable member for the years 2010 and 2011. ABC News has confirmed Mr. Stephanopoulos was a member during both years...." see full article

George Stephanopoulos a Member of Clinton Global Initiative in 2010, 2011 - Breitbart News
"...Stephanopoulos' failure to disclose those donations when interviewing the author of a book critical of the Clinton Foundation has led to complaints about biased coverage of the Clintons. Stephanopoulos conceded that he would not take part in any GOP primary debates for ABC News, but the network has said it continues to stand by him and will allow him to lead its political coverage in 2016...." see full article

The Party of Stupid, George Stephanopoulos and the 2016 Presidential Debates - ConservativeHQ
"...Stephanopoulos is one of the liberal elite's key insiders and they are not going to criticize him for doing his job, which is not to report the news, but to message the liberal elite's leftwing agenda. And if they were honest ABC would admit it was not like they went out and took the applicant with the highest SAT score when they were looking for a new anchor and political commentator; ABC News obviously knew how close Stephanopoulos is to the Clintons that's why they hired him!..." see full article

George Stephanopoulos Addresses Donation to Clinton Global Foundation - ABC News

"...Stephanopoulos's recent coverage of the topic has been challenged by critics who question his objectivity as a longtime Clinton aide. The host's April 26 interview with Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer, for example, elicited partisan reactions after Stephanopoulos repeatedly pressed the Schweizer to acknowledge the lack of a smoking gun among the allegations in his book...." see full article

George Stephanopoulos Makes a Passive-Aggressive Non-Apology for Clinton Donation

"...In a non-apology apology that is unlikely to appease the referees of press ethics, let alone his Republican detractors and may just baffle morning television viewers who haven't paid attention to the blossoming scandal within the media-political complex the former top aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton put the very best face possible on his lapse in judgment in not disclosing $75,000 in donations to the Clinton Foundation when he conducted a contentious April 26 interview with foundation critic Peter Schweizer on This Week With George Stephanopoulos, ABC News's Sunday show...." see full article

George Stephanopouloss Clinton Foundation Hypocrisy Is Staggering

"...Set aside the fact that if not outed he would likely never have informed his viewership about his contributions to the Clinton Foundation (and presumably would have continued to grill authors like Peter Schweizer for attacking the pay-for-play Clinton culture). Set aside the fact that, in Clinton Foundation tax-reporting fashion, he forgot a $25,000 donation when he initially and erroneously stated that he had contributed $50,000 rather than the actual $75,000. And that he confused the news source that originally discovered his gifts. What we are left with is George Stephanopoulos indicting George Stephanopoulos...." see full article

Geraldo Rivera Has an Uncomfortable Question for ABC News About George Stephanopoulos Scandal

George Stephanopoulos donations to Clinton Foundation: Immediate crisis for ABC News

"...Good journalism simply cannot tolerate such a stake. Stephanopoulos already has a history with the Clintons, having served as Bill's senior adviser for policy and strategy. Those ties already had media critics many of them conservatives wary of just how objective he could be in covering a Clinton-colored political landscape. Now he has confirmed their wariness, in perhaps the dumbest move by a major media figure in some time...." see full article

George Stephanopouloss Donations to the Clinton Foundation Arent a Real Scandal
"...But what is wrong with Stephanopoulos's contributions? Was there anyone who is now in a lather unaware that Stephanopoulos worked closely with Clinton to get him elected and then to work in Clinton's administration? That, obviously, is how he got the job he now holds as the senior news anchor at ABC News. He has proven, in the years since he left the government, that he can transition away from partisanship as well as the next fellow especially if the next fellow happens to be Roger Ailes, who as a media consultant helped elect Richard Nixon and is the founder and head of Fox News. No one can be taken seriously about journalistic conflicts of interest and ideological bias who doesn't begin by explaining how Ailes escapes criticism...." see full article
