Kudos to the Fifth Estate
Character assassination is a dirty trick. Newt Gingrich took an unnecessarily aggressive posture when he hung up on the call. Kudos to you and ABC News for leaving in the full interview. I’m sorry the interview ended this way, but on one hand, Newt was right. The white house press corps asks a lot of circuitous questions that put politicians on the spot. You put Newt on the spot and even though you opted to full disclosure, he didn’t. He was there to publicize his book. You wanted to get him on the record in regards to his character assassination of the press. Both sides need to take a break and stop shoveling muck on each other. We need to call a truce and get back our American spirit. United we stand. Divided we fall. Why can’t we all get along?During these troubled times, we desperately need a free press. The press is NOT the enemy of the people. It is our last defense as you speak truth to power, better than our elected officials. Please keep doing what you’re doing, but do it in a way that doesn’t leave bitter feelings and a breakdown in communication.
