    While now claiming Donald Trump is the personification of an ISIS recruiting poster and having Tweeted last month that Muslims have nothing to do with terrorism, Hillary Clinton was telling a different story post-9/11. In fact, she once called for profiling Muslims and doing "whatever it takes to keep our people safe." That's what she told ABC's Sam Donaldson in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.----- Clinton responded: "Well, I think everyone recognizes we have to tighten security. We have to do whatever it takes to keep our people safe." Donaldson asked: "Including profiling, senator?" Clinton answered:...

    Another power couple on the rocks: Sam Donaldson and Jan Smith Donaldson. The veteran ABC newsman, 78, and his journalist wife of 29 years quietly separated several months ago, her attorney confirmed to us Wednesday. “They remain on good terms with each other and are hopeful they’ll be able to resolve their economic issues,” lawyer Sandy Ain said. No reason given for the split, and the couple has not yet filed for divorce, said Ain: “It’s unclear where this is ultimately headed.”

    SAM DONALDSON: The minorities re-elected president Obama, but I'm going with Katty. It's the Tea Party and thinking of the Tea Party and people like that that are driving the Republicans out of contention as a national party. You cannot win nationally if you don't know something about the way the country's changed, and the Tea Party seems to think the country can go back 25 or 30 years. The greatest slogan that I hated during this last campaign was “We want to take back our country.” Guys, it's not your country anymore - it's our country and you're part...

    Repeat something and it becomes heard. Repeat something often and it becomes accepted fact. Repeat a lie and people believe it even if it defies logic. But if you’re a prominent person and you repeat something that has no factual basis, you truly are a disgusting individual. One of the accusations that the supporters and allies of President Obama have continued to assert is that challenges to Obama are based on something other than disagreement with his governing policies or philosophies. Unwilling to listen to opposing arguments, they’re convinced that every difference of opinion has to be based on distaste...

    If Sam Donaldson was right, and getting “different perspectives” is important, then why did Good Morning America put together a segment on Pres. Obama’s Supreme Court nominee that had just one perspective, roughly translatable as “Viva Sotomayor!”? Did the ABC folks really think that MSM liberal Cokie Roberts was going to oppose Sotomayor? Could they have been counting on MSM liberal Sam Donaldson to do so? Oh, and let’s not forget the “expert” we heard from: a professor of . . . women’s studies. That professor, Phyllis Coontz, of Pitt’s women’s studies department, declared: “Women are more sensitive. They think...

    ABC's Sam Donaldson let a little of his inner-conspiracy theorist out this morning on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. In a discussion of President Barack Obama's lessening the sanctions on Fidel Castro's Cuba, Donaldson began his analysis with one of a number a Kennedy-Truther notions that have been knocking around ever since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.... Another wild card in this crazy deck was Cuba's El Presidente, Castro. The theory being that Castro was upset with JFK's woefully planned and executed Bay of Pigs attempt at ending his nascent dictatorship, and...

Posey also was convicted of four counts of evidence tampering. He hung his head and wept briefly as the verdicts were read, and defense attorney Gary Mitchell offered consolation by putting an arm on Posey's shoulder.

Donaldson then paused and added "in his audience." However you slice it, Donaldson managed to slur both O'Reilly and a good chunk of his viewership. Valid observation, or the take of a bitter, jealous man who used to be a significant media fixture?

Even though 30 million viewers still turn to networks news each night and garner ratings well above CNN and Fox News, networks news operations long ago lost their role as the sources Americans rely on during time of major breaking news, said Donaldson...

    In yesterday's (March 27) Los Angeles Times, media reporter and critic David Shaw demonstrates Oscar Wilde's maxim that modern journalism is important—if only because it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. Giving every indication that he's read a lot of stories about bloggers but not that many actual blogs, Shaw disparages the form as the error-filled rants of amateurs in his piece, "Do Bloggers Deserve Basic Journalistic Protections?" It's a "solipsistic, self-aggrandizing journalist-wannabe genre," Shaw writes. Without naming a specific offender—except Matt Drudge, who he acknowledges really isn't a blogger—Shaw generalizes about bloggers for 1,300 gassy...

Following the presentation of the awards, as MRC President L. Brent Bozell III made closing remarks and thanked those who made the evening possible, he was interrupted by ABC News veteran Sam Donaldson, who bound on stage in mock anger, railing at Bozell and the MRC for the attack on the news media. Bozell soon resumed...
  • Donaldson & Plante Credit Reagan with Hastening End of Communism

    Time heals old animosities? Thursday night’s Hardball on MSNBC marked Ronald Reagan’s 93rd birthday with a look at his legacy. ABC’s Sam Donaldson declared: “I think he deserves credit for accelerating the fall of communism.” And CBS’s Bill Plante agreed: “What he did absolutely hastened the end of the Cold War.” The MRC’s Brad Wilmouth and Geoffrey Dickens both caught the admissions by the two network correspondents who covered the Reagan White House. The exchange, on the February 5 show, with host Chris Matthews: Matthews: “Is it your belief, Sam, as a straight reporter, an observer, do you think Ronald...

    C-SPAN ^ | February 2, 2003 is offering 128k RealVideo of yesterday's CPAC debate between Bob Novak and Sam Donaldson on the subject of "Bias in the Media." Runs approximately 1:20. Will probably also air on one of the three C-SPAN TV networks at least one or two more times over the next few days, but of course it's almost impossible to find out of any future airings more than a couple of hours in advance.

    The White House is downplaying Thursday's FBI terror alert that al Qaeda is preparing to launch a "spectacular" attack that will inflict "mass casualties" on the U.S. But veteran ABC News correspondent Sam Donaldson isn't buying the revised story. "I talked to someone last night," Donaldson told WABC Radio in New York Saturday morning. "And he knows what the government thinks it knows." "He said, 'You better take this seriously,'" reported the former "This Week" host. "We are hearing not just chatter.... We're getting some specific indications that, looking back on 9/11, we now know were there as clues" that...

    Ever since ABC announced in June that This Week With Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts would become This Week With George Stephanopoulos, Sam Donaldson has ducked the press. It's ironic that the voluble newsman — infamous for chasing down elusive politicians — now has little to say about his own future. After a stellar 35 years at ABC News, why did the 68-year-old Donaldson go mute? Better to be silent than to lash out at the bosses who reduced have him to a marginal role. "I've been deliberately not returning calls," Donaldson admits. "People called when George Stephanopoulos was announced,...

    I haven't heard much of anything about Sam Donaldson's much touted radio show lately. Does anybody know if it is still on the air? Has anybody here even listened to it. If so, just how horrible was Sam's radio show?
