ABC news anchor George Stephanopoulos made a throat-slitting gesture to cut away from Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow during live coverage of the Senates impeachment trial Thursday.
According to Tim Graham, executive editor of NewsBusters, Stephanopoulos was spotted on camera making the motion around 3:00 P.M. EST. The clip begins with a Capitol Hill reporter asking Sekulow for his thoughts on Attorney General William Barr, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and renowned lawyer Alan Dershowitz having previously made the argument that abuse of power is impeachable....As Sekulow takes another question, Stephanopoulos orders staff situated off-camera to end the broadcasts feed by making a throat-slitting gesture. The ABC News anchor then segues into a panel segment to discuss the Trump lawyers comments.

Wasn’t he the Guy Bill Clinton Paid to go out and lie to the Public because he was incapable of being truthful??
It must be killing the mostly dead msm that the only question people I know are asking is “when is this over?”
Rs because they know it’s a waste and Ds because they know they don’t stand a chance.
8 plus million watching?
A trial the could see the POTUS removed from office???
Heck, 20 million watched the Kavanough hearing.
Almost no one cares
It really doesn’t appear that bad to me. Jay was taking a side question because he couldn’t hear and it was bad TV.
He wanted to get to his panel and let them spin it. I’m not saying I like George or ABC, but it’s not really dubious like Jay was making some brilliant point and he’s wanting to stop his viewers from hearing it.
I havent watched ABC news since they hired Steph to take over This Week with David Brinkley. Steph hosting that show was a huge insult to the memory of one of the greatest news readers in TV history. Steph had no qualifications other than being a mouthpiece for the dishonest Clinton White House. ABC used to have Howard K Smith and Harry Reasoner, great men with conservative opinions. Even Ted Koppel wasnt that bad. But Steph? He is no great journalist.
He also ran the Clinton War Room AND was a friend of Epstein's... nothing like an 'objective journalist' to bring trust to the media...
He was instantly embarrassed that the camera caught him telling them to “cut the feed!”. It’s like a joke, but it’s real.
Here’s a link to his picture doing this[
ABC is Disney
I once had a brief conversation with Ted Koppel in the early eighties. I asked him why it seemed that the press was on the liberal eise of the issues. He sort of shrugged his shoulders and agreed
OOOppps Correct link to picture below video link is post 3
I understand George’s mother is REALLY getting tired of driving him to work and back.
i bet the republican side will get more veiwers and i will watch that...
Well, suppressing the other side and upholding your own liberal agenda is part of objective journalism. /s
