ABC News Anchor Charles Gibson Says He Does Not Even Know About the ACORN Scandal - Audio 9/15/09



Here is unbelievable audio of ABC News Anchor Charlie Gibson saying he has not even heard about the ACORN undercover video scandal! He was asked about it this morning on radio station WLS-AM Chicago.

Gibson laughed when asked and said "I don't know about it." He then said condescendingly, "Maybe that's just one you leave to the cables."

Wow, apparently they would rather cover non-issues like which celebrity did who, or more Obamacare propaganda. Yawn. What do these people do all day. They wear me out with their blatant passiveness on covering real news. I used to watch ABCnews everyday, I don't trust them now.

This isn't a news story, is why. Who the hell cares what happened in an ACORN office in Baltimore? This is, at best, a local TV station's "expose" type of story, exposing corruption in the midst of their fair city. Which is about all that Faux News is good for.

Diogenes,
You know that what you are saying does not pass the laugh test. Here is an organization in ACORN that has received millions of Federal dollars, and played an integral role in getting President Obama elected. This is a story that should be covered.

Where was this sense of outrage when it came to Big Dick and Halliburton? No matter HOW big the ACORN "scandal" is, it isn't directly connected to Obama at all, and the "millions" that funded ACORN pale in comparison with the billions that funded Halliburton. And Big Dick sure had a much more recent and much more tangible relationship with Halliburton that Obaa has had with ACORN.

Face it: it's a story because rightwingnuts are willing to latch onto ANY story -- no matter how insignificant -- that can be spun to cast Obama in a bad light.

But, absent a real scandal, ACORN will have to do.

Diogenes,
Let's drop the constant "Big Dick" references. I'm going to start deleting those posts in the future. Call him Cheney, Dick Cheney, VP Cheney, but no more of the off-color references.

Diogenes September 15, 2009 at 10:58 PM  

Sorry, Brian, I didn't mean to be "off-color". I find that phrase to be very accurately descriptive of Cheney. How about I just call him "The Guy Who Sold Out America To Make a Lotta Bucks For Himself And His Buddies At Halliburton" ?

Now that you've saved the image of your Hero, the XVP, how about addressing the ISSUE? You and the rightwingnut community are so fired up about corruption in ACORN? What about Halliburton? What about Dead-Eye Dick? (Not off-color; just a commentary on his hunting prowess.)

Diogenes,
I'm not trying to tell you how to feel about former Vice-President Dick Cheney. I do appreciate your cooperation.

You Lefties have gone to seed on the whole Haliburton thing when nothing has ever been proven that was illegal or unethical. The Democrats have controlled the House now since 2007 and they have done nothing. If there was even a shred of evidence, they would have been on it night and day - same with the media.

Instead, you all think by mentioning the word "Haliburton" it proves something.

The fact Haliburton got Government contracts to do things in Iraq does not mean anything illegal or unethical has taken place. It may mean there are things they do well that needed to be done in Iraq, and Cheney was not the one making those decisions.

It's just too much for you all to believe our troops liberated millions of people from Saddam Hussein and be proud of that. Instead, you have to make the war about "Haliburton" or "oil." Our troops did the job in spite of your declaration the "war is lost," and that it was not a noble and just action.

It was just and noble, and I'm proud of them, the job they have done, and believe Dick Cheney should be respected for his leadership.
