    Some of you are probably done with ABC News over the George Stephanopoulos embarrassment. Of course, you wouldn't be wrong to boycott ABC News. You might be a fool not to. If you have any pretension to intellectual honesty, you either boycott ABC News over this Stephanopoulos mess, or you take a pair of hairy donkey ears and pin them to your temples. It's possible that you wish to keep on watching the ethically challenged ABC News but you'd really like to skip the hassle of searching for authentic hairy donkey ears. In that case just wear a kilt, a...

    When it emerged that George Stephanopoulos had failed to disclose $75,000 in donations to the Clinton Foundation to either the network or viewers while repeatedly covering the organization, ABC News declared that it would stand by its “chief news anchor.” The New York Post’s Emily Smith explains that they have one hundred and five million reasons to ignore their own declared standards and practices. ABC renewed Stephanopoulos’ contract last year for more than double what NBC paid Brian Williams … and it’s working out just as well: ABC has plenty of reasons to be freaking out over the George...

    ABC News actually responds to Free Beacon inquiry ABC News policy required that George Stephanopolous disclose his contributions to the Clinton Foundation to management before covering stories related to it, according to an ABC spokesman who responded to a Washington Free Beacon inquiry. (snip) Staff need to disclose personal donations to a charitable organization to us before covering a story related to that organization, said Julie Townsend, who heads ABCs news communications. He had not disclosed the Foundation donations to us before he interviewed Peter Schweizer, the author of Clinton Cash.

    In case you missed it yesterday, ABC News chief anchor and former Clinton White House communication advisor George Stephanopoulos admitted to donating $75,000 dollars to the Clinton Foundation after being busted by the Washington Free Beacon. Of course, Stephanopoulos didn't disclose the information before interviewing Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer two weeks ago about allegations Hillary Clinton traded political favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation during her time as Secretary of State. During the interview, Stephanopoulos argued there was no "smoking gun" to Schweizer's claims in his book and said ABC News had concluded there was no wrongdoing. Naturally,...

    So how did Politico break the George Stephanopoulos Clinton Foundation donations story? Actually they didn't break it at all. The story was shopped to Politico after the Washington Free Beacon made inquiries to ABC News about Stephanopoulos' contributions to the Clinton Foundation. Apparently ABC News thought Politico would offer more favorable coverage so they leaked the story to Politico. However, to his great credit, Politico writer Jack Shafer not only acknowledged the critical role of the Free Beacon but was also highly critical of ABC News for this tactic.First let us look at this morning'sFree Beaconannouncementof who really broke this...

    On the Sunday before the election, CBS "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer unloaded one of those pompously "progressive" end-of-show commentaries about how our democracy is being ruined by money. "The right to vote is our proudest possession, but the way it has become debased by money shames us all." He claimed "Congress hasn't done anything in years, yet these midterm elections will be the most expensive in history, just like the last one -- $4 billion this time around. That's billion with a B," he lamented. On one level, he is correct. Special interests are purchasing candidates right and...

The lead story was on a capsizing of a sport crab-fishing boat in the San Francisco Bay. (You can read about the actual story here.) The TV report had testimonials from both a US Coast Guard captain, and an officer in the Bodega Bay Fire Department. And, how did KGO ABC-7 "News" decide to label them on-screen? By using the flag of the mass-murdering, beheading, crucifying ISIS terrorist group. Witness the pictures below.

Several months later, it turns out, Ennis has decided he no longer wants to be a woman. Back then, Ennis, 49, wrote to his colleagues: This is not a game of dress-up, or make-believe. It is my affirmation of who I now am and what I must do to be happy, in response to a soul-crushing secret that my...

    ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don.Fortunately, my memories of the last 14 years have since returned. But what did not return was my identity as Dawn, said Ennis, who had been wearing lipstick, skirts and heels. I am writing to let you know Im...

    While appearing Tuesday on KABCS morning show, McIntyre in the Morning, veteran ABC News analyst Trey Hardin dropped a bombshell when he said he is convinced that the IRS scandal emanates from the West Wing of the White House. Hardin states his case with with a very strong sense of certainty, but does not offer any new information to support the claim: I will tell you this on the IRS front. Ive worked in this town for over 20 years in the White House and on Capitol Hill and I can say with a very strong sense of certainty that...

    Earlier this week, I wrote about the dirty tricks campaign against journalist Amir Taheri following his revelation that, in a private meeting in Iraq last July with Iraqi leaders, Barack Obama tried to persuade them to delay the agreement being hammered out with the US government on a draw-down of the American military presence. According to this account, which quoted Iraqs foreign minister Hoshya Zebari (pictured), Obama had thus privately sought to undermine an American government foreign policy initiative an explosive revelation. Taheri subsequently dismissed as tendentious Camp Obamas response which he said deliberately confused two separate agreements under...

    Bianna Golodryga opened today's Good Morning America by announcing that it was "a very busy Saturday morning." So busy, in fact, that GMA couldn't spare one second in its first half-hour for the IRS scandal. That despite yesterday's stonewalling testimony by the outgoing IRS Commissioner in which he had the colossal chutzpah to deny there had been any political motive in the targeting of conservative organizations. So what kept GMA so busy? By far the longest segment was devoted to . . . the Powerball lottery. GMA spent 325 secondsover five minuteson the Powerball lottery. One report from stores where...

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    Fifty six days after the grisly trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell began, ABC broke its self-imposed blackout and finally offered coverage. World News anchor Diane Sawyer belatedly told viewers that Gosnell was convicted on three counts of first degree murder against newborn babies, as well as on a slew of other charges. Terry Moran explained, "For two months, jurors heard often shocking, grisly testimony." He described the details as a "house of horrors." A house of horrors that ABC took 56 days to notice. As the Media Research Center has aggressively documented, ABC went from March 18, 2013

    Its a good thing Jan Brewer is a politician and not a journalist. The Associated Press recently struck the term illegal immigrant from its lexicon. Not so Arizonas feisty governor and shes not backing down on this one. Brewer defended her use of the word during an interview with a clearly irritated ABC News Senior National Correspondant Jim Avila, who repeatedly pestered Brewer to change her language, to no avail: Ive heard you use the phrase over and over and over again. Theyre insulted by the term, illegal immigrant. That that brands a person. What they do is illegal...

    Anyone else listening to Sean Hannity's Show and the ABC News breaks during? ABC News is SHAMELESSLY claiming this is the first US homeland terror attack on Obama's watch, a blatant lie and surely they know it. And if they don't, they should go out of the news business. ABC News needs to tell the families of the 13 murdered heros by Hassan the Islamic radical maggot that their loved ones didn't die from terrorism. Or should we assume ABC News is just toeing the Obama line that it was an act of workplace violence and not what it was,...

    The news line on Drudge Report immediately got my attention: Girl Born Without Eyes or Nose. But when I clicked on the link, expecting to read about a just-born, severely handicapped baby, I found a very different story, a story about a courageous teenager with an amazing attitude to life. One simple quote from her said it all. Before I share the quote, let me introduce you to 16 year-old Cassidy Hooper, born without eyes or nose. A child like this would be the perfect candidate for abortion in todays society, especially since her condition is traced to a rare...
