Skip to comments.ABC News’ textbook lesson in media hackery
Posted on 01/20/2012 6:47:33 AM PST by radioone
Last night ABC News aired the much ballyhooed interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newts ex-wife.
The ballyhoo was not warranted. The interview was not so much an interview as an 8-minute ABC News attempt to portray Newt in an unfavorable light interspersed with very short clips of Marianne.
A prime example was Brian Ross asserting that Newt divorced his first wife while she was being treated for cancer. That account has been disputed, but no note of the dispute was made by Ross.
There were only two sensational aspects of Mariannes statement, neither of which ABC News tried to put in context or challenge.
First, Marianne stated that Newt wanted an open marriage. Ross never attempted to clarify whether Newt used that term or whether that was Mariannes interpretation. While Ross noted Newts denial at the debate, he made no mention of the context which would have raised questions as to Mariannes story.
