Fast & Furious Segment Left on ABC This Week's Cutting Room Floor
I was actually excited about watching This Week With George Stephanopoulos. I could not wait to see his interview with Speaker John Boehner, because he actually asked him about Operation Fast & Furious. I couldn’t believe it!
But it was too good to be true. Despite the promotions and even a blog by Mr. Stephanopoulos strictly on Fast & Furious, the segment was cut out of the interview. You can watch the interview on the website though. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/05/john-boehner-all-options-on-table-for-fast-and-furious-investigation/
Mr. Stephanopoulos even asked Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi if Attorney General Eric Holder was in contempt. Of course she said no, even though she had no problem holding President Bush’s Attorney General Alberto Gonzales accountable for actions in his Department of Justice. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0407/3612.html
Yes, Mr. Stephanopoulos asked about Fast & Furious, but he lost any credit I would give him since that part of the interview did not air.
At least this shows that more people within ABC News besides Jake Tapper know about Fast & Furious, but they are purposely not talking about it -- which makes them look even worse.
