    On orders from President Barack Obama, the U.S. military launched cruise missiles early Thursday against two suspected al-Qaeda sites in Yemen, administration officials told ABC News in a report broadcast on ABC World News with Charles Gibson. Share ABC's Brian Ross details missile strike on al-Qaeda militants in Afghanistan. One of the targeted sites was a suspected al Qaeda training camp north of the capitol, Sanaa, and the second target was a location where officials said "an imminent attack against a U.S. asset was being planned."

    NEW YORK -- Considered one way, Charles Gibson 's career in TV news seems to be a model of stability: 34 years logged with one employer, ABC. There, he did his job well and rose to the top echelon of his profession, forming a firm bond with his viewers and offering his gracious signoff, "I hope you had a good day." On the other hand, Gibson, who Friday retires from the "World News" anchor desk and from ABC as a full-time employee, is bowing out as more than an admired network news star. At 66, he's a proven utility player,...

    President Obama pushed back against critics, including the former head of the Democratic Party, who have said that the health care bill in the Senate is fatally flawed and should be scrapped altogether. In an interview with ABC News' Charles Gibson, the president said he laid out for Congress specific things he wanted to see in the health care legislation -- including providing insurance for millions of uninsured and not driving up the deficit -- and that the current bill still has those benefits. "Now, if you can tell me that those things are not worth it, then you and...

    Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz presented quite a paradox in a Charlie Gibson profile Monday. The retiring ABC World News anchor said that "it’s time to move on" since objectivity is "less of a marketable commodity." But Kurtz also underlined how Gibson dared to keep airing live coverage of Ted Kennedy’s funeral until they were able to broadcast the reading of Ted Kennedy’s letter to Pope Benedict. These passages came late in the article: Gibson worries whether broadcast networks will be able to support sizable editorial staffs in an era of declining audiences, when cable news channels are louder...

Obama stated in a speech this week that his 'stimulus' packages were working, that millions of jobs had been 'created or saved,' and that the economic figures indicate the first stages of a turnaround.

    News that President Barack Obama is demanding new Afghanistan options and answers, after months and eight meetings with top officials on General Stanley McChrystal's request for more troops, led ABC anchor Charles Gibson to express exasperation Thursday night: “What new questions are there to be asked after all this time?” CBS and NBC, however, weren't so dubious. Though Katie Couric painted “a long, drawn out process,” Chip Reid assigned gravitas to Obama as he asserted Obama “has been agonizing over this decision” and “recently immersed himself in the agony of war.” Reid touted: “That the President is so thoroughly researching...

    The appearance of “V,” a refried UFO show on ABC, suggests that President Barack Obama is a dangerous alien. What’s interesting is that this new series is by a major network that went unconscionably gaga over Obama last year. Such reportage — the gushing, idolatrous positivism issued by Katie Couric and Charles Gibson in the 2008 race, a perfect, present-day equivalent of Aldous Huxley’s “feelies” — is viewed here as it is with Huxley: as totalitarian. Elizabeth Mitchell, Earth Mother incarnate from the “Lost” series, back from True North to form an underground, is definitely worth the watch. Maybe they...

    While CBS and NBC ignored yesterday’s expansion of the federal definition of hate crimes to include sexual orientation, ABC’s Charlie Gibson reported it, explaining that the amendment was “named for Matthew Shepard, a Wyoming college student killed 11 years ago because he was gay.” It’s true that the amendment, attached to a defense spending bill, was named for Shepard but Gibson ignored his own network’s investigation of the Shepard case that revealed sexual orientation was not the sole motive behind his murder. ABC’s “20/20” investigation in 2004 found that drugs fueled Shepard’s brutal murder, not homophobia, as is widely believed....

It was just a few days ago that Gibson said on a Chicago radio station he had not even heard of the ACORN story. I guess that prompted him to look into it. (VIDEO)

  • (WABC's) Charlie Gibson on Acorn Scandal: I Don't Even Know About It

    This morning, the ACORN scandal was raised to Charlie Gibson in an interview on WLS AM Chicago’s “Don Wade & Roma Morning Show.” TRANSCRIPT:Don: Ok here’s my question, Senate bill yesterday passes cutting off funds to this group called ACORN. Now we got the…we got that bill passing, we got the embarrassing video of ACORN staff giving tax advice on how to set up a brothel with 13 year old hookers. It has everything you could want corruption and sleazy action at tax funded organizations that’s got government ties. But nobody’s covering that story why?Charlie Gibson: (laugh) I don’t even...

    ABC News just lead off its 3:00 p.m. radio newscast with a report on ACORN, including comments at today's condemnation by Gobbs at the Whitehouse Presser!! Just like Van Jones, they lamestream media can no longer ignore this huge political story! I guess once John Stewart made fun of Press for ignoring the story, the alphabet networks and the print media to go after ACORN -- including the LA Times and the NYT -- were shamed into reporting the story. Kudos to Fox News, Glenn Beck, Hannity, Breitbart and those two young folks who risked it all to get the...

    Here is audio of Chicago Radio Host Don Wade telling Glenn Beck he was shocked yesterday when ABC News Anchor Charles Gibson said he had not heard about the huge unfolding ACORN Scandal. "My jaw had hit the console," he said. Wade said he believes Gibson really did not know about the story, and that his ignorance of it shows the diminishing relevance of the Network Evening News. . . . (AUDIO)

    Backing up his anchorman, Charles Gibson, who suggested on the radio that maybe the ACORN story "is just one you leave to the cables," World News executive Jon Banner extended the liberal snobbery on Politico: While Banner admits that some stories may get more attention on cable, blogs or talk radio, it doesn’t mean they’re suited for the "World News" audience. "There’s a tremendous amount of – for lack of a better word – ‘noise’ out there. We’re not in the business of noise."

    Army of the InsaneOf all my duties here at Delta-Man probably my least favorite is trolling the liberal websites and reading their crap. I do this for two reasons: first of all so you don’t have to and second, to find out what these idiots are saying and attempt to respond to their arguments in a logical manner. Now I realize that these arguments will never reach these deluded liberals since logic is a concept that’s as foreign to them as responsibility. Instead I attempt to respond to their arguments because that’s how normal people engage in a meaningful debate,...

    by Mark Finkelstein January 31, 2006 - 08:07 Toggling between the Today show and Good Morning America this morning offered a perfect illustration of the very different treatment the MSM reserves for Republicans and Democrats. At Today, Andrea Mitchell was painting a very grim picture of President Bush's foreign policy record. For example, when it comes to the recent Hamas victory in the Palestinian territories, reactions have been very mixed, with some seeing a significant silver lining. Take this comment by conservative [and I might add Jewish] columnist Jeff Jacoby: "I think the sweeping Hamas victory is by far the...

    Senate Democrats continued to filibuster John Bolton's nomination to be Ambassador to the UN, but you wouldn't know that from Monday's broadcast network evening newscasts which assiduously avoided the term. ABC anchor Charles Gibson, for instance, euphemistically referred to how the Senate had rejected "a move to end debate so that a vote could be held." CBS's Gloria Borger passed along innuendo from opponents: "The Democrats are very concerned that John Bolton may have been effectively spying, not only on his subordinates but also on some of his bosses. And we've learned tonight that one name they're very interested in...

    Conservative radio talk show host G. Gordon Liddy, who was sent to jail for his role in the Watergate scandal, said former FBI Deputy Director F. Mark Felt is a "flawed individual" who was pressured to confess his identity as the confidential source known as "Deep Throat" because his family wanted money. Liddy told the Fox News Channel's John Gibson Wednesday that as a law enforcement officer if Felt had evidence of a crime and the participants of that crime, "he was duty bound to take that to the grand jury." "That's what he should have done rather than leak...
