    BILL KRISTOL: The only thing that appeals to me is what Reince Priebus just called a dumb idea, which is giving the American people a better choice than Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump... I think an independent candidacy is totally doable, I think it will happen. The ballot access problems are not -- STEPHANOPOULOS: -- coming up on the filing deadlines -- KRISTOL: -- oh, Texas, North Carolina. Every other state -- no other state's filing deadlines' before June 27th. You couldn't wait until the convention. You'd have to decide after Indiana, possibly after California.

    Hillary Clinton claimed surprising ignorance of a bill she should be intimately acquainted with as a former secretary of state and New York senator. ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos brought up the legislation introduced by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, which would allow 9/11 victims to sue state sponsors of terror for the attack that took nearly 3,000 lives in 2001. "Your senior senator here in New York, Chuck Schumer has sponsored a bill backed by the 9/11 families that would give them the right to sue state sponsors of terror in federal court," he said Sunday on "This Week." "Now,...

    Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has recently had a spate of anti-Israel comments, and on Sunday he continued the streak as he said US President Barack Obama has not been far enough on the Palestinians' side. Video In an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC, Sanders was asked about his debate with frontrunner Hillary Clinton last Thursday, in which he attacked Israel for taking "disproportionate" measures in defending itself from Hamas terrorists in 2014 Operation Protective Edge. Stephanopoulos showed a clip from the debate in which Sanders called for the US to take an "evenhanded" approach vis-a-vis Israel...

    Less than a year ago, ABC's George Stephanopoulos admitted that he had made $75,000 of undisclosed contributions to the charitable foundation/campaign operation of his former employers, Bill and Hillary Clinton. He then personally pledged he wouldn't moderate a Republican primary debate this year. But ABC News later issued a statement of support for Stephanopoulos, insisting it wouldn't take punitive action against him. It's bad enough that ABC never even considered removing this self-evident Clinton loyalist from his "objective" political coverage position. They even allow him to conduct softball interviews with Hillary Clinton, and won't even insist on reminding viewers of...

Asked whether the idea of a contested convention was still "an extreme hypothetical," Priebus explained: Uh -- uh probably not still the case, no. I think it's possible.

    With the prospect of a contested convention looming over the Republican presidential primary, Donald J. Trump on Sunday complained about the party’s rules requiring a candidate to have a majority of delegates to clinch the nomination outright. Asked by George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” why he should be “guaranteed the nomination” if he failed to amass the 1,237 delegates needed to win it on the first ballot, Mr. Trump said that he might be unable to clear that threshold. But he blamed the number of contenders in the Republican field. “If I’m a little bit short – and one...

    Donald Trump is once again shrugging off the escalating violence at his rallies, saying the people protesting his presidential campaign are largely to blame for incidents. “These people are very disruptive,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday. “These are not innocent lambs.” The Republican frontrunner said the demonstrators who shut down an Arizona highway leading to the Phoenix suburb where he was scheduled to speak were violating his right to free speech — and the rights of his supporters to come hear him. “They’re really stopping our First Amendment rights,” Trump said. “If you think...

Trump, coming off a win a night earlier in the Nevada Republican Caucus, said rolling back President Barack Obama executive orders, including one dealing with the border and immigration, repealing ObamaCare and taking care of the veterans would be his priorities. "Well, the first thing I'd do is knock out some of the executive orders signed by our president," Trump said. "Especially the one on the border where people are allowed to...

    Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz said on “This Week” that he plans to filibuster any Supreme Court nominee made by President Obama to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Cruz described the Supreme Court vacancy left by Scalia as having a "profound impact" on the Republican primary that will change the contours of the presidential race. He argued voters -- not a "lame-duck president" -- should decide who will replace the longtime conservative judge who died Saturday. "This is a 5-4 court -- the next election needs to be a referendum on the court," Cruz told ABC News' George...

Using a nationally televised interview as her forum, she assumed a familiar and crucial role as Bill Clinton's first defender. She said she knew him better than anyone in the world, still loved him, and fully believed his denial of allegations that he had entered into a sexual relationship with a White House intern and had urged the young woman to lie about it.

    I attended a Donald Trump rally yesterday, October 3, in Franklin Tennessee. I’ve never seen attendance like it. I arrived an hour early and the line snaked around the building then back on itself around the building again – and the people kept coming and coming. They were mostly average working people, I estimate about a third were under 30. All were heartened by the crowd itself. Everyone I spoke to expressed renewed hope for America in this candidate. Eventually, the organizers stopped letting people in and we were all stranded out in the rain. The couple behind me had...

    “The fallacy that President Obama is a Muslim has tripped up many a politician,” said NPR’s Jessica Taylor hopefully on Friday, “and on Thursday night, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump was its latest victim.” Trump’s presumed faux pas was his failure to correct a questioner who asserted that Barack Obama was a Muslim. Taylor’s real error as a reporter, like that of all her mainstream colleagues, was to dismiss the questioner’s assertion as a “fallacy” without providing any evidence to the contrary. Strange but true, reporters pride themselves on knowing nothing about Obama’s roots. Last month, for instance, Catherine Thompson...

The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO tweeted about Santorum’s “doomed presidential bid” and lobbed another bomb at ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, mocking Santorum for making his announcement in an interview with the “pretend journalist.” (Stephanopolous’ standing among Republicans has fallen considerably since POLITICO reported that he had given $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation.)

Three days after that controversy broke, Stephanopoulos hosted an exclusive interview with Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Then, on Wednesday, he landed an even bigger exclusive: Rick Santorum, the former Republican senator from Pennsylvania, would be announcing his bid for the presidency. Stephanopoulos also landed the first interview with Santorum, which will take place this afternoon. The McConnell...

    The ABC News spox who slow-walked The Washington Free Beacon’s 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. I’m going to send you something,” Riley emailed TFB...

    The official Democratic Party Twitter account, @TheDemocrats, is being slammed by a media figure who himself has a history as a Democrat operative. Jake Tapper of CNN has, by almost all accounts, worked hard (harder than George Stephanopoulos by the evidence) to be fair toward Republicans, despite having once worked as press secretary for Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law Majorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, when she was a liberal Democrat member of the House of Representatives. Of course, Tapper did appear on the Clinton Foundation website as a speaker at an event, only to have that mention go poof! and disappear in the wake of...
  • Keith Ellison: 'Proud to Stand' with Rand Paul

    Not the endorsement someone heading into the Republican primaries would normally want, but it's the one Rand Paul got. On today's This Week [hosted by Jonathan Karl in the absence of Stephanopoulos], far-left Rep. Keith Ellison declared that on a variety of issues, including opposition to the Patriot Act, he is "proud to stand" with Rand Paul. Roll the video and watch Bill Kristol look on benignly as Ellison praises Paul. You can imagine he was thinking that every Ellison accolade was another chunk of GOP primary voters lost for Kristol's least-favorite Republican candidate. In the unkindest cut, Kristol claimed...

    If you're an intellectually curious person -- and if you're a journalist, let's assume that you are -- you are likely to have embraced a number of notions about how the world works, how it should work and who should be running it. This is natural. It's inevitable, then, that most journalists have formed some opinions about partisan politics. It's unrealistic to expect that even the most conscientious journalist can wholly divorce his or her professional work from his or her philosophical positions. And even if that person were to put forth the sincerest effort possible, biases are likely to...
  • Most Voters Expect Biased News Coverage of 2016 Presidential Race

    Rasmussem ^ | May 21, 2015
    In the wake of the George Stephanopoulos scandal, most voters doubt the accuracy of political news coverage and think most reporters will slant their coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters now do not trust the political news they are getting. That's a 16-point jump from 45% last October. Twenty-one percent (21%) still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that's down from 33% in the earlier survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) When it comes to...

    In the wake of the ongoing controversy surrounding ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos and his failure to disclose $75,000 worth of donations to the Clinton Foundation, and now news of his $105-million contract with the network, Politico decided to tout the “frugal habits of his wife” actress Ali Wentworth. Author Kate Glassman Bennett writes that “as word spread of the beleaguered Good Morning America anchor’s exorbitant take — following on criticism of his $75,000 of ill-conceived donations to the Clinton Foundation — certain circles back here in Washington were twittering about the frugal habits of his wife.” Despite being a multimillionaire,...

    One fringe benefit of the George Stephanopoulos Clinton Foundation scandal in which ABC's This Week host failed to disclose that he donated $75,000 (plus lots of time) to that organization while interviewing "Clinton Cash" author Peter Schweizer  is that it has inspired some really hilarious street art. The poster art appears to be the work of the conservative street artist who goes by the name of "Sabo." Not only was it just the art that served as comedy relief but also where it was located as revealed in a tweet this morning by the Weekly Standard senior writer, Mark Hemingway.

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the longest-running Southern Gothic soap opera in American history! It is a mix of "Days of Our Lives," "Dr. Phil," "The Sopranos," "Oprah" and "Judge Judy" all rolled into one, long, endless saga called "The Clintons — a Tale of Naked Ambition, Unquenchable Libido, Towering Greed and Their Desperation to be a Part of Every American's Life as Long as We Live." It is about 20 years on from being "The Young and the Restless." It has become "The Old and Relentless." Washed Up. Won't stop talking. Won't stop spinning. Won't stop lying. Won't...
  • ABC's Stephanopoulos ‘helped hatch’ 2009 Dem strategy (being coached as Repub debate host?)

    NY POST - PAGE SIX ^ | 5/19/15 | Emily Smith and Bruce Golding
    ABC's Stephanopoulos never really left Clinton-land — and it didn’t bother his ABC News bosses....he had daily phone contact with high-powered Democrats at the same time he anchored ABC's “This Week,” soon to host “GMA.” Politico reports Stephanopoulos was in a “round-robin phone chat” w/ Democrat honchos in which political strategy was “quite likely....being hatched”.... Stephanpolous said he "learned a lot." Ex-Clinton staffer, now an ABC spox, Heather Riley, insisted it “wasn’t true then, and it isn’t true now” but acknowledged: “... he talks to his friends once in a while....”

    The Clinton Foundation scandal continues to spread ever since the news broke that it did not disclose millions of dollars of donations from foreign governments and businessmen. It’s already infected ABC, as anchor George Stephanopoulos was forced to apologize for personal undisclosed donations to the foundation. He has yet to acknowledge or apologize for some of the other connections that have surfaced. But the connections don’t stop there, they extend to other prominent lefties and to a Spanish-language media outlet. Through its Too Small to Fail initiative, The Clinton Foundation is tied to Tom Steyer and the American Spanish language...
