Skip to comments.ABC spox in Stephanopoulos flap worked in Clinton White House (the Clinton Coven at ABC)
Posted on 05/26/2015 8:50:58 AM PDT by Liz
The ABC News spox who slow-walked The Washington Free Beacons request for comment on ABC's Stephanopoulos undisclosed donations to the Clinton Foundation also worked in the Clinton admin. Heather Riley -- spox for ABC News programs helmed by Stephanopoulous, GMA and This Week -- worked in the White House press office 1997-2000, according to LinkedIn, and is a member of the Facebook group Clinton Admin Alumni.
Fox reports The Free Beacon contacted ABC News on the afternoon of May 13 to request comment. I was just forwarded your email about George. Im going to send you something, Riley emailed TFB later that night. Want to make sure you get it in time. " Riley later told the Free Beacon that she would deliver a statement by 7 AM the next morning. However, the statement did not arrive until 9:40 AM about 15 min after POLITICO published its scoop about the donations.
WH records show Riley was a press contact for then-FL Hillary. Prior to ABC News, Riley was senior director of brand communications for Rodale, Inc. The company, and its charitable foundation, have donated $20-$50,000 to the Clinton Foundation, records show. The Rodale family contributed at least $5,000 to Hillarys campaigns 2005-08. Stephanopoulos worked on Bill Clintons 1992 campaign, and held several top posts in the Clinton admin including spokesman and senior adviser. --SNIP--

ABC sold itself to the Clinton White House.
<><> Do the ABC brainiacs think Steffie's grilling of Schweizer was done in a vacuum?
<><> Did ABC about contact w/ the Clintons....maybe warnings to keep donations secret?
<><> Did ABC not see "The War Room" WRT Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign....wherein Stephanopoulos aggressively defended Clinton against charges of infidelity ...(which Clinton later confessed to).
<><> Did ABC not see this Time cover?
short for spokesperson
(HAT TIP FREEPER TRAVIS MCGEE) "Most viewers of the New Hampshire Republican primary debate wondered why ABC-NEWS debate moderator George Stephanopoulos kept asking seemingly off-topic questions about the candidates views."
Georgio's "gotcha" question to Obama's opponent, Mr Romney, about birth control, lasted weeks on the news cycle, even though it was not an issue anywhere in the US.
We now understand White House War Room General Valerie Jarrett had been coaching hard-left suckups like Georgio to deliver the administration's talking points and strategic memes via the debate format....colluding in the effort to dupe America voters.
Clearly Democrat suck-up boychik Georgio could be depended upon. After all, he was a ruthless factotum in the Clinton White House
He did not "just happen" to pick debate questions calculated to boost Democrats. He was coached by cunning Obama White House conspirators and colluded with them to get the job done on ABC-TV.
If the cream puff ABC execs wanna get tough (/snix), they should take a look-see at Steffies’ emails and phone records—prolly find numerous exchanges w/ the Clintons pending his interview w/ author Schweizer.
George and the Clintons knew the interview was crucial to Hillary’s ambitions.....and the existence of the corrupt foundation
Oh, that'll happen.
On the other hand, they might arrange for those emails to be "accidentally leaked" to an outside entity. It happened before, from Newsweek to Matt Drudge IIRC.
RASMUSSEN--Forty-six percent (46%) of voters now think ABC should ban Stephanopoulos, a former high level Clinton administration official, from any programming related to the presidential campaign since Hillary Clinton is running for president. Thirty- four percent (34%) say they are less likely to believe the reporting on ABC News because Stephanopoulos failed to disclose the donations to the Clinton Foundation.

---they have the media in their hip pocket.:
“ABC sold itself to the Clinton White House.”
It just doesn’t lend itself to the name as well as the “Clinton News Network” did.
All Bull#$$3 Coverage?
OK, All Biased Coverage.
The level of liberal connectivity “incest” is breathtaking. A few more generations of this and they will have 14 toes and spare sex organs.
a somewhat sarcastic......look at the CLinton Dilemma....
If nothing else convinces people of whose side Steffy is on, remember his delivering the Ellen Romesch threat to Sam Donaldson on live TV during the impeachment?
“Back off my boss, or we’ll dump ALL the FBI files of every member of the Senate and media...”
Yeah. What is spox.
I don’t know media jargon.
Why they think average readers know DC jargon...
