I never want to see George #Stephanopoulos moderate another debate.

This is ridiculous.  More to the point, it’s insulting. Did they think that people wouldn’t ferret this stuff out?

When Peter Schweizer appeared on “This Week” on April 26th to promote his new book about the Clintons, he got a skeptical grilling from host George Stephanopoulos. One subject that wasn’t raised? The fact that Stephanopoulous has personally contributed $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation, as Politico reported this morning.

…Well, maybe they did think that. Journalism during the Obama administration has been really bad.  Sufficiently so that maybe political operatives just assumed that it was the new normal. Well… it is not.

PS:  Note that Politico got this story because Stephanopoulos figured, Better them than the Washington Free Beacon…

    Are you implying you EVER wanted to see Stephanopoulos moderate a debate?

      Moe might better phrase this as, “There’s no excuse for allowing Stephanopoulos to ever moderate another debate and any Republican operative who allows that to happen should be tarred, feathered, and ridden out of town on a rail.” But that’s a little long for a he’d. How about, “I don’t want to hear one damn word about Republican/conservative conflicts of interest.”

        s/he’d/hed/. Freaking autocorrect.

        But yeah, seriously if Priebus allows Stephanopoulos to moderate a debate, we need to immediately remove him from the Chairmanship. That is something he can control.

        • Moe_Lane says:

          It’s already been established that Stephanopoulos will not be doing the ABC debate.

            p.s. It would amuse me to no end to watch E.E. moderate a debate .. especially one of the “town hall” style messes.

    Another great moment in, Ethics In Journalism!!

    I would. But then I would make sure every answer to questions from him started “I will assume you have some hidden conflict of interest on this because you’ve done that before.” and “I’ll note that before I answer the question that you used to work for the Clintons and apparently have never stopped”
