It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!
The Clintons’ Own Media Meat Puppet George ‘What Donations?’ Stephanopoulos!!
The Noisy Room: My nomination this week goes to George Stephanopoulos for failing to disclose that he donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation and was obviously biased in his coverage and defense of Hillary Clinton. As the New York Post so astutely put it the bigger they are, the dumber they think we are:
Dan Rather of CBS was toppled by a phony document scam. Lyin’ Brian Williams at NBC casually mixed fact with self-aggrandizing fiction. Now George Stephanopoulos is caught in a Clinton web of deceit at ABC.
The hat trick of arrogant anchor scandals helps explain why Americans don’t trust network news. With apologies to Walter
Cronkite, that’s the way it is, and the way it is stinks.
Stephanopoulos shares with Rather and Williams the rotten distinction of fessing up only after being exposed by real
journalists. In his case, the Washington Free Beacon uncovered his secret donations to the Clinton Foundation and contacted ABC for a response.
Of course, just before the crapola hit the media fan, Stephanopoulos ran to the Leftist rag, Politico, and vomited a confession. This was after trying to cover it up. He didn’t tell his bosses about the donations and he didn’t tell viewers that he had given money to the Foundation even as he reported on it and the Clintons.
On April 26, Stephanopoulos put Peter Schweizer in the hot seat; he’s the author of the sensational “Clinton Cash” book that exposes the Clintons and their graft. Stephanopoulos pressed him to admit the book contains no ‘smoking gun.’ The implication was that, if it’s not indictable, it’s not important. He sounded more like a lawyer than a media hack. Stephanopoulos cleverly used that standard to give the Clintons the all-clear. The anchor also cited Schweizer’s ‘partisan
interest,’ noting that Schweizer was a speechwriter for President George W. Bush. Boy, pot meet kettle.
Another media sycophant bites the dust amid lies and scandal. Flip this media shill – he’s done. Another Progressive weasel gets whacked.
Rev Al’s Understudy, Dominique Sharpton!
The Independent Sentinel: Al Sharpton’s daughter Dominique Sharpton claims to have “severely injured, bruised and wounded” her ankle when she fell over uneven pavement on Broome St and Broadway in Downtown Manhattan. She is suing the city for $5 million.
Her father, another weasel, said she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.”
“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote to Instagram.
The fall was on Oct. 2 and by December she was marching in her father’s National Action Network Justice for All march in D.C. Despite her great suffering, she was seen in high heels in December and she was seen climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree according to the NY Post.
Nice Deb’s Favorite Troll, jensenempire2551!!
Nice Deb: Can the nominee be a commenter on my blog? If so, I’d like to nominate jensenempire2551 who in the course of slamming Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, professed his desire for Obama to be “the first President to run Three Terms…”
A professor Alan Dershowitz trapped in his book learned education, not a creative bone in his body and has forgotten his childlike creativity! Sure blast Obama, personally we’ve need to open doors….
i would like to see Obama run another term an go down in history as the first President to run Three Terms…
So F__ken you Alan!
I guess weasels can be somewhat creative, but they’re not exactly known for their intelligence, now, are they?
Well, there it is. What a despicable group of Weasels… ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
