Shocker: Democrat Operative and Pretend “Newsman” Stephanopoulos “Helped Hatch” Democrat Strategy Dating Back to 2009

TV STILL -- DO NOT PURGE -- GOOD MORNING AMERICA - Coverage of GOOD MORNING AMERICA, 12/19/13, airing on the ABC Television Network.   (ABC/Fred Lee)   GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS

This was pretty much confirmed in 2012 when he went on a one-man jihad against Mitt Romney by badgering his about birth control during one of the GOP debates. If ABC wants to maintain any shred of credibility this clown has to go.

George Stephanopoulos never really left Clinton-land— and it didn’t bother his bosses at ABC News.

Back in 2009, when he was already anchoring “This Week” and about to take over “Good Morning America,” Stephanopoulos maintained daily phone contact with high-powered Democrats tied to ex-President Bill Clinton.

According to a Politico report that’s resurfaced amid the scandal over his $75,000 in gifts to the Clinton Foundation, Stephanopoulos was one of four Clinton insiders who took part in “round-robin chatter” during which Democratic strategy was “quite likely . . . being hatched.”

Naturally another Clinton operative denied the obvious partisanship. Oh, and she also works for ABC. How cozy.

ABC spokeswoman Heather Riley — who also worked in the Clinton White House — insisted Tuesday that the story “wasn’t true then, and it isn’t true now” but also acknowledged: “Does he talk to his friends every once in a while? Sure.”

When the next bomb drops they’ll tell us this is old news. Their credibility is shot; they’re the last ones to find out.

    It was shot when they first hired him. It just took this long for the hubris to grow large enough for most people to notice.
