The Media Research Center reports that George Stephanopoulos is secretly helping Barack Obama on a daily basis (as opposed to his shilling for Obama only once a week on his show). MRC reports that Politico reported:
This Week George Stephanopoulos has daily phone discussions with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel during which he helps formulate and shape the thoughts of and messaging for Emmanuel and the Barack Obama Administration. And that he has had these conversations with Emanuel throughout his tenure at ABC.
CNN liberal pundits Paul Begala and James Carville also participate in the daily round robin telephonic strategy sessions. In the article, Begala said he often can’t remember the originator of any particular insight, and is quoted as saying “We talk so much — was this my idea that James changed, or was this George’s observation that Rahm tweaked?”
I am not surprised, just surprised that it got out. Begala and Carville are hacks who just shill for the Democrats but up until now there was some plausible deniability that Stephanopoulos was a real journalist. No longer. In truth, most of us were stunned when ABC had the audacity to hire this Clintonite Democrat Party acolyte to host This Week.
This just proves once again what we all saw during the election of The One: the media is completely in the tank for Barack Obama.
“What’s worse than the liberal media’s sycophantic coverage of President Barack Obama? ABC’s George Stephanopoulos actively helping design and deliver the Administration’s strategy and message – which he is then charged with reporting.
“Will Stephanopoulos be critical of the White House’s plans when he spends every morning helping to craft them? Not likely. He must from this point forward recuse himself from any reporting involving the Obama Administration.
“For Stephanopoulos, the line between journalist and liberal strategist would be completely obliterated were it not for the fact that it apparently never existed at all. He didn’t fail in his attempt at transformation from liberal operative to journalist – he never made the effort.”
George Stephanopoulos should be fired by ABC and run out of journalism forever.
