George Stephanopoulos

The Party of Stupid Allows Clinton Foundation Member Matt Lauer to Moderate Debate

What would make Republican candidates for President agree to a debate moderated by Matt Lauer, a “Notable Member” of the Clinton Global Initiative, or George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary of a Democratic president, or the likes of CNN’s notoriously liberal host Anderson Cooper? Besides rank stupidity, it is hard to think of a reason.

The protected, connected liberal media elite

We’re seeing another member of the liberal elite getting a free pass for behavior that would have landed anyone else in the unemployment line. This time, it’s former Clinton White House communications hack and current ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos. Stephanopoulos was busted by the Washington Free Beacon last week for donating a total of $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation without disclosure to his employer or the audiences he serves. The revelation came less than one week after Stephanopoulos conducted a harsh interview with Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer.

ABC Colleague: George Stephanopoulos ‘Really Isn’t A Journalist’

If ABC’s chief anchor thought two apologies over his undeclared Clinton Foundation donations would be enough to pacify his critics, he was wrong.On CNN’s Reliable Sources media criticism program, Stephanopoulos’s former ABC News colleague, Carole Simpson, unloaded on the former top aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton. “There is a coziness that George cannot escape,” said Simpson, who toiled for two decades at ABC News, notably as the weekend anchor of World News Tonight from 1988 to 2003. “While he did try to separate himself from his political background to become a journalist, he really isn’t a journalist.”

The Party of Stupid, George Stephanopoulos and the 2016 Presidential Debates

In his book TAKEOVER CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie asked "What would make Republican candidates for President agree to a debate moderated by George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary of a Democratic president, or the likes of CNN’s notoriously liberal host Anderson Cooper?" Mr. Viguerie concluded that besides rank stupidity, it is hard to think of a reason. But the Republican Party’s DC insiders seem genuinely disappointed that their buddy George Stephanopoulos – whom they see at all the nice parties in Georgetown – is not a “journalist,” but a shill for the Clintons and their partisan Democratic agenda.
