The List, ping
You're taking this personally aren't you.
Actually, no. I simply asked a question.
The destruction of a perfectly useful unibrow as a fashion statement should be prohibited. We men deserve to know what we're getting eh.
No conflict of interest there...
Russian Christians celebrate on a different date.
You guys are so funny. You act like we all watch ABC news everyday. I do not and have not watched ABC News in YEARS if not longer...lol. They could start performing sex acts on ABC News and I would not know or care. Sometimes I think you guys are really liberal and watch ABC News all the time. Why else would you care who this chick was dating that might give her some scope from the White House...People get a life.
Jon Stewart’s Wife Tears Up in Presence of the Obamas
By Tim Graham | December 8, 2009
Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his teary wife met the Obamas backstage:
They told us the Obamas slipped backstage during intermission to greet the performers; Tracey got teary when it was her time to shake the president’s hand.
“It was quite a moment,” she said.
“If he hadn’t stepped on her foot, she wouldn’t have cried,” joked her husband. “That’s what happens to the little people.”
Brian Williams and Katie Couric also came down for the shindig, and one ABC reporter dated an Obama administration official:
Hey, Peter Orszag, your date is hot! The lady on the OMB director’s arm turned out to be ABC business reporter Bianna Golodryga.
In Housing Segment, ABC Ignores Truth Behind ‘Bank Terrorist’
By Scott Whitlock | February 10, 2009
“Good Morning America,” financial correspondent Bianna Golodryga promoted the efforts of a radical housing group run by CEO Bruce Marks, a self proclaimed “bank terrorist.” Of course, Golodryga skipped that description and glossed over the extreme actions of the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America [NACA]. Instead, she simply asserted that the organization tries “to help keep people in their homes.”
Golodryga neglected important information, such as the fact that NACA has picketed outside the schools of children whose parents work for banks that are not acquiescing to the group’s demands, which include insisting that mortgages be given to high risk individuals. In an April 2, 2008 column, Michelle Malkin quoted Marks as saying, “We will go to their neighborhood, we will educate their children on what their parents do. They should be ashamed.” A December 2007 article by The Globe (featured on NACA’s web site) unabashedly touted Marks as “a controversial character who once infamously called himself a ‘bank terrorist.’”
November 12, 2007 “Good Morning America,” reporter Bianna Golodryga hyperbolically warned that “some people are foregoing routine visits to the doctor and are opting for cheaper foods, like pasta and peanut butter, as opposed to protein, fruits and vegetables, in order that they can save as much money as possible.” She added that for certain individuals, “Even holiday gift shopping won’t be the same.”
April 22, 2008, Ms. Golodryga showcased a man who had been forced to skip church because of gas prices. She then intoned, “Some people even say that they are changing their diets, cutting down on costly prescription drugs or walking instead of driving to the local grocery store.”
July 2008, ABCs Bianna Golodryga on “Good Morning America” lamented that “Americans are struggling just to pay for a cup of Starbucks coffee.” NBCs Matt Lauers clever headline: “Trouble brewing — Starbucks announces its closing 600 stores in the next year. Is the demand for $4 lattes dying in a tough economy?”
GMA co-host Robin Roberts, in an interview with Senator McCain, questioned, “So, why is Senator McCain abroad when Americans are focused on the economy here at home and losing jobs, more and more jobs, as Bianna just reported?”
ABC’s Bianna Golodryga Wages Class Warfare on ‘Super Rich’
By Scott Whitlock | May 19, 2008
“Nightline,” ABC reporter Bianna Golodryga filed a segment on the “super rich” who are untainted by the tough economic times and once again highlighted left-wing investor Warren Buffett’s calls for more taxation. Without ever labeling Buffett as liberal (he has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president), Golodryga cheerfully proclaimed that the billionaire is “concerned about the burgeoning wealth gap.” The ABC reporter then parroted Buffett’s claim that his cleaning lady is paying more in payroll taxes then he does on capital gains. “She doesn’t have a lobbyist,” the investor complained
Of course, neither Buffett nor Golodryga pointed out that the top one percent of earners pay 39.4 percent of all federal income taxes. In fact, Golodryga has touted Buffett’s liberal economic policies before. On November 15, 2007, on “Good Morning America,” she lauded the investor for coming out “on behalf of fairness in taxes,” in relation to his calls to retain the estate tax and (liberally) reform capital gains tax policy. She rhapsodized to viewers that Buffett was on “your side over taxes and fairness.”
ABC’s Bianna Golodryga: High Gas Prices Equals No Church or Breakfast?
By Scott Whitlock | April 22, 2008
Co-host Diane Sawyer fretted, “As gas prices balloon, 12 cents in just one week, some Americans tell you how they skip breakfast and drugs just to drive.” News anchor Chris Cuomo solemnly informed viewers of the “tough choice” many Americans face: “Food or fuel?”
Cuomo then introduced reporter Bianna Golodryga to explain “the sacrifices people are now making.” Included in those sacrifices was one Juan Martinez who told Golodryga “Our church is approximately 35, 40 miles away. We’ve really cut down on the amount of times that we’ve come into service since the price has gone up.” Now, as Golodryga admitted, this clip was actually from November of 2007, during a previous GMA segment about gas prices causing people to skip church and possibly cancel Christmas.
ABC’s Golodryga: Another Great Depression Looming?
By Scott Whitlock | March 18, 2008
“Good Morning America” economic reporter Bianna Golodryga narrated a segment on Tuesday’s show that featured grainy black and white footage from the 1930s and two references to the Great Depression. The ABC journalist also featured clips from Democratic presidential contenders Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to amplify the warnings of impending economic doom.
While discussing the collapse of investment bank Bear Stearns, grainy footage of panicked ‘30s bankers appeared onscreen as Golodryga intoned, “The problems are so massive that the Fed is taking measures not seen since the Great Depression...” And while President Bush was briefly highlighted, assuring Americans that the United States will rebound, Paul McCulley, the managing director of the investment company Pimco, continued the comparison to the worst economic crisis the United States ever faced. Referencing impending action by the Federal Reserve, he asserted, “...You could have the Fed with great intentions but still a downward spiral in property prices that would give you a modern day depression.” For comparison’s sake, during the Great Depression, almost 25 percent of Americans were unemployed.
February 11 “GMA” has determined “cash-strapped homeowners” are taking “desperate measures,” that is they are burning down their homes to avoid foreclosure. That notion ABC’s Bianna Golodryga based upon two isolated cases of anecdotal evidence.
One home supposedly burned because Sheryl Christman, a 38-year-old Michigan woman, was three days short of foreclosure. She pleaded no contest after the Sept. 1, 2007 arson. The other case was a Colorado arson where a man “may have” committed arson before an “imminent foreclosure.”
Bianna Golodryga says of President Obama’s Office of Management and Budget director, Peter Orszag. The two have been dating since last summer. New York-based Golodryga went to DC on Wednesday and was sneaked in by Orszag’s staff to surprise him at his office to celebrate his 41st birthday. “I was sitting at his desk when he walked in,” she said. The couple attended the White House Hanukkah party before she took the divorced dad of two to dinner.
ABC: Obama Not to Blame for Stock Drops
ABC’s Bianna Golodryga dismissed the notion that stocks were declining in anticipation of Barack Obama’s presidential administration, based on his business and economic policies. Nov. 7, 2008.
ABC’s “Good Morning America” is now blaming gas-station owners for the high gas prices. Reporter Bianna Golodryga revealed that gas stations add fees to credit-card users purchasing gas.
ABCs Bianna Golodryga says high gas prices are the reason for many families building vacation getaways in their backyards on Good Morning America.
Dating: OMB Director Peter Orszag and ABC News correspondent Bianna Golodryga. The youngest Cabinet-level appointee (a divorced dad of two) has escorted the New York-based financial reporter (early 30s) to black-tie events like Meridian Ball and Kennedy Center Honors; their hand-holding at the White House Hanukkah party made it clear they’re officially an item. She surprised him by coming to town to celebrate his 41st birthday this week.

If he thinks that idiotic thing is fooling anyone, I have grave reservations about his ability to manage anything, to say nothing of his ability to manage a $2.9 trillion budget.
