Skip to comments.Charlie Gibson tells WLS radio (Chicago) "Uh, i never heard about the ACORN story"
Posted on 09/15/2009 3:36:38 PM PDT by SERKIT
Don: Okay, heres my news question. A Senate bill yesterday passes, cutting off funds to this group called ACORN. Now, we got that bill passed and we have the embarrassing video of ACORN staffers 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 and its got government ties. But nobodys covering that story. Why?
Gibson: HAHAHAHAHA. HEHEHE. I didnt even know about it. Um. So, youve got me at a loss. I dont know. Uh. Uh. But my goodness, if its got everything including sleaziness in it, we should talk about it this morning.
Roma: This is the American way!
Gibson: Or maybe this is just one you leave to the cables.
Roma: Well, I think this is a huge issue because theres so much funding that goes into this organization
Gibson: I know weve done some stories about ACORN before, but this one I dont know about
Roma: Jake Tapper did some blogging on it. I know hes blogged at least once on this scandal.
Gibson: You guys are uh really up on the website.

Uuuuuhhh news??? Whhaat news?
Ol Gibsey knows about ACORN. He and the marxist media are trying their best to ignore ACORN, Van Jones and all the other communism happening in OUR white house!
I agree. Just a shameful performance by Charlie Gibson. He just exposed himself as the buffoon he is.
And the folks who depend on Charlie for their news should be even more ashamed.
They're not likely to go to FIRE_ANDREA_MITCHELL.COM, though.
ABC News job posting:
Needed news anchor and reporter.
Qualifications: Only idiots or morons need apply.
In another part of this same radio interview, he was asked about the Tea Party in Wash DC. He quickly changed topics and said he was sailing in Maine and did not pay any attention to the march or crowds. SLEAZE!!!
Charlie, YOU LIE!
Then, Charlie, I guess this statement confirms what you really are - a ‘news reader’ just like the British call them. A dimwit that can read the news. Read only what’s put in front of your pampered face. From this point forward, any claims by you that ‘I make news’, ‘I interpret and analyze news’, etc. is just what it is - HORSESHIT.
You mean the networks are STILL on the air?
Haven't had network TV on since....hmmm...I don't even remember, but that was a LONG time ago...
Gibson was graying then....how ancient is he now?
Network's "news" stopped being so around 1989....
Other than the rare college football game on a network vs. ESPN, I can't recall the last time I had one of those on my TV....
Now that he knows...did anybody find out if it the ACORN story was on tonight?
What a pitiful, moronic excuse for a reporter. ABC is third rate as a news source.
What a nitwit - nothing but a piece of furniture that can read a teleprompter. Like Biden and his “what’s the number of that web site?”
And yet he mocked Sarah for not know what the Bush doctrine was!
Well, Gibson, if you weren’t always wearing those glasses on the end of your nose, you might have gotten more oxygen to the brain and tuned in better...I doubt it though...
6:49 PM Eastern—CBS shows promo for next segment about ACORN....
Charlie Wilson has become as redundant as Katie Couric.
I wouldn’t watch their snarky smirks if somebody paid me to. They know what they’re doing and for some reason they’re enjoying it. Wonder what amount their nice raises were these last two years?
I think that might be something worth some research. Maybe Glenn Beck and crew could look into that?
>>>> Haven’t had network TV on since....hmmm...I don’t even remember, but that was a LONG time ago... <<<<
I watch The Office on broadcast network TV. It’s pretty funny.
But I discovered it through the internet.
The entire broadcast news industry was Katie Couricized about 20 years ago.
Heard this on Rush today. It was so absurd, it was laughable. Gibson won’t be winning any Academy Awards anytime soon; his acting was horrible.
On the other hand, if he really is so out of the loop that he honestly has no idea what this story is about, then I’d say he needs to retire pronto.
Ironic, in that he was one of the people who tried to paint Sarah Palin as ignorant.
charleeeee. if you never heard of the acorn story it’s time you turn in your so called journalism badge. What a weak statement.
A = always
B = been
C = clueless
Heard the clip on Rush’s show today.
Gibson is a liar. Lies come easy to democrats.
Today he made himself more absurd than he already was.
“YOU LIE CHARLIE!!!”
I don’t shop at stores that constantly run out of stock or have unknowledgeable staff.
Similarly, I don’t shop for news at ABC OR NBC anymore for same reason. If I have a half-hour to give to news, I want complete, accurate, unbiased news. ABC does not have that.
I don’t know what is worse, the reality that Gibson actually did not know about ACORN or the other possibility that he was lying and actually knows and refuses to cover it....
agree. Just a shameful performance by Charlie Gibson. He just exposed himself as the buffoon he is.
Main TV has all dinosaur media blocked. Have not watch any of these mutants since 1975.
I just searched the abcnews.com main page. No ACORN (case insensitive) hit except the link to Tapper’s report over on the right side.
Were his glasses on the tip of his nose?
While I could not tell via the AM radio if his fatherly half-glasses were at the tip of his snobbish nose, I could detect that his head was well up his rectum.
