    I do not care as much about journalists and commentators donating money to political organizations, I care about them being honest about it when they turn around and go after opposition. As for the debates, it will be damn near impossible to find a completely neutral moderator. But, a little honesty in how they lean would be helpful.

Do you realize that over half of their reports are outright lies, and the rest are heavily slanted to the right? Yeah. We don't do that. We do try to offer a counter-point to their propaganda, and if that means presenting the left's version of things, why, I think that's only fair. So yes, we're right down the middle."

    And the guy he mentored is now heading up Hillary's current campaign. No conflict of interest whatsoever.

    And he also lied when he initially said he had given $50k to the Clinton Foundation but it was then exposed that he had given $25k each year in 2012, 2013, and 2014. And it was because he was concerned about AIDS and global warming? I mean I may be getting old, but that should be a stretch for anybody to believe it is credible.

    You should be concerned about who they donate to also. Nobody who has declared a side and has openly advocated for a side can claim credibility as objective or impartial in their political coverage as a member of the media.

    For instance, here are the charities Bill O'Reilly contributes to.
    Bill O'Reilly: Bill's Charities

    What charities does George Stephanopolous contribute to? We know about one.

    And one final shot across the bow here. . . .

    The way ABC is handling this is, in my opinion, less than exemplary. Consider the way CBS handled the Dan Rather scandal--when it was obvious he had used dishonest evidence, Rather's career at CBS was over. NBC suspended Brian Williams for lying to his viewers and suspended Keith Olbermann for not disclosing a $2400 political donation. For ABC to defend Stephanopoulos does not speak well for their journalistic integrity.

    This is where the tactics of the lefties really shines. We are expected to believe that he gave that money to the Clintons because he wanted to help with a couple of their causes. But if you were really interested in a charity and wanted to donate, wouldn't you look in to the pass thru rate of the charity? George is supposed to be an investigative journalist, don't you think he could have done that?

    So he is either an idiot or he is lying about intent. Not likely he is really an idiot, more likely he wanted to contribute to their election and wanted to do it with plausible deniability. But the Hillary supporters will look past it. Hell she could walk in to the convention dragging a blood child by the hair and they wouldn't see it. Let's just define this honestly. He did it because he wanted the Clintons in office. It's the least he could do after that sweetheart real estate deal when he was working for them. If only Democrats were not required to be dishonest assholes....

    WASHPOST Wemple: Stephanopoulos interview of 'CASH' author Schweizer 'looks like activism'...

    New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters and Washington Post Media Reporter Erik Wemple criticized ABC’s response to George Stephanopoulos’ undisclosed donations on Friday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.

    “I doubt that they’ve had a chance to do any degree of inquiry. Perhaps they asked George ‘did you do anything else, what other donations do you have? Look at your tax records, have you done anything else?’ And maybe he just told them, ‘no, this is it.’ But then that’s troublesome, because at first he said, ‘I’ve only done $50,000, now I’ve done $75,000.’ The story changed throughout the day, they had to amend their disclosure. Which was embarrassing, too, because at first it looked as though he had only given disclosures in 2013 and 2014, which is between the time that Hillary Clinton was — resigned from Secretary of State, and the time she declared her candidacy for president. … It was a lousy argument to begin with. But still, now that you go back to 2012, it’s even worse” Wemple stated.
