    GS should never be allowed to interrogate, er, do interviews, involving political people or issues, unless it's just puff pieces with like minded politicos.
    I think his employer, ABC, has the right to have him do what ever they want him to do. I suspect the public doesn't care what he did.

    I just don't understand the outrage. He didn't donate money to Hillary Clinton or her Pac. He gave it to a charitable organization doing work in third world countries. Could he maybe have picked out an even better Charity to give money to? Probably. But should we give a ****? Nope. Everyone is acting like the Clintons take all of the money out of that charity org. and put it in their bank account when we've seen no evidence of this.

    This whole thing has already hurt George S.. He will no longer be a moderator in the debates as planned. And it is never good when a dozen of your peers thinks you really stepped in it.

    I agree to the point about ABC having him do whatever they want him to do. The credibility of their news anchors has already been well established. As to the public, I don't know if they don't care. I suspect they do care, but aren't surprised.

    My comments about limiting GS to certain activities was only in the framework of attempting to regain some credibility, which ABC may not be interested in. Obviously, he should never be allowed to moderate a debate. Or at least candidates should be able to ask to have him removed.

    if you are asking how much harm he did to his integrity, I would say none.

    he hit rock bottom quite some time ago.

    Zero. Among the other progressives masquerading as journalists he's their wet dream hero.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    ABC hopes the blow-back is minimal. They signed Stephanopoulos to a 7 year $105 million deal in 2014

    What should happen to him? Nothing, Suspension (how long) Fired How long will he be tarnished? Currently he is the co-host of Good Morning America which has the highest ratings of the three major networks. He is also the host of the Sunday morning news discussion program This Week.

    Here is Peter Schweitzer's opinion column in today's USA Today

    Stephanopoulos, ABC have not fully disclosed Clinton ties: Schweizer
    If the media was honest about trying to be unbiased then he would be fired.The media is not unbiased, nor does it try to be.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
