I was looking forward to watching “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos for his heavily promoted interview with House Speaker John Boehner. I was particularly excited to hear Stephanopolous ask about Operation Fast & Furious, as promotional spots for the show said he would.
Alas, it was too good to be true. Despite the promotions and even a blog by Mr. Stephanopoulos dedicated to the topic of Fast & Furious, the segment was cut out of the interview. You can watch the interview on the website.
Mr. Stephanopoulos did ask Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi if Attorney General Eric Holder was in contempt of court. Of course she said no, although she had no problem holding President Bush’s Attorney General Alberto Gonzales accountable for actions in his Department of Justice.
More people within ABC News besides Jake Tapper know about Fast & Furious. They are intentionally ignoring the issue, however. And that makes them look just as biased as they are.
