    Re: ABC’s Stephanopoulos gave $75G to Clinton Foundation without disclosing it...

    Seems like Mr. Stephanopoulos has a lot of company with a lot of media entities contributing to the Clinton Foundation. However, apparently Judy Woodruff's contribution, for example was specifically for Haiti relief and if the records show that the entire amount went to Haiti, that might not look so bad. More research is needed to evaluate the nature of the contributions. Those that went to the Clinton Foundation to be used for whatever are much more problematic when it comes to appearances of objectivity and impartiality in reporting the news.

    Maybe Ms. Hillary should recuse herself from using ANY Clinton Foundation money for political purposes for this election cycle and, if she is elected, when she serves as President of the United States? But if any of that money was to curry favor, the deed is already done nevertheless.

    Giving away $75K? That's just plain stupid.
    It's the "Pay if you want to play" sales pitch. If you donate you get perks. The perks pay off big time. It is kind of like an investment later down the road.

    Well, it's good to know people are holding traditional network news anchors to a higher standard than the 24 cycle competitors.

    ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos got deeper in hot water Thursday with his network, which revised upward to $75,000 the amount of money he contributed to the Clinton Foundation without full disclosure to the network or viewers -- while he was covering Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and foundation controversies.


    Guess it slipped his mind. This jerk felt fine interviewing the author of "Clinton Cash", trying to smear and discredit him, as he himself is supporting the Clintons.

    No integrity. What a hack.
    I tend to agree with you, but having seen his apology on TV last night, I thought he handled it pretty well, admitting his poor judgment on TV.

    Hes only pretending to be sorry because he got busted. He is not sorry about being a Clinton sycophant, no one is.

    He did not say he was sorry for being a Clinton sycophant, he said he was sorry for not having disclosed his financial ties to the Clinton Foundation to the public or to his employer. Can you see the difference?

    Of course I can see the difference. I just doubt the sincerity.

    I'm confused.

    Is donating to the Clinton Foundation the same as donating to Hillary's run for Presidency?
    Putin has certainly grabbed Trump by the pussy. Payback is a bitch.

    If this is the slippery slop quid pro quo folks are so concerned about here, then I'd say ABC News needs to ensure he doesn't act as a debate moderator throughout the 2016 presidential campaign cycle. Otherwise, I don't see where he's done anything wrong here except not disclose he donated to a charitable foundation that happens to belong to both a good friend (the Clintons) and a 2016 Democrat presidential candidate while conducting an interview of an author whose book brings said foundation and one of its owners (Hillary) under scrutiny.

    No. It's about gaining favorable treatment if she wins. We do live with the security of knowing that Hillary would never, ever consider such donations favorably with regard to policies when president, though. And we have Bill's assertion that she should avoid any appearance of impropriety, and coming from Bill, why, that holds a lot of weight.
