Coulter on Stephanopoulos Scandal: 'People Hate the Media'
Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter tonight discussed a new report that ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos inked a $105 million, seven-year contract with the network last year.
Last week, Stephanopoulos apologized to his viewers for his failure to disclose the $75,000 in donations he made to the Clinton Foundation while he was covering Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and foundation controversies.
A number of Republicans, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), have stated that Stephanopoulos' donations disqualify him from moderating a GOP primary debate.
“Sen. Paul believes that Stephanopoulos’ ties to the Clintons make it impossible for him to be a fair reporter,” Paul's spokesman Sergio Gor said yesterday. “He has avoided being on his program for over a year and will continue to do so.”
Coulter told Hannity that this new scandal is just "the icing on the cake."
"The main point here is ... that you can't control what other people do," she said. "You can control what you do. And it's time for the RNC to say, 'None of these people get to interview our candidates.'"
She said that there shouldn't be any mainstream media debates and that candidates should ask their own questions.
Coulter said that the sole purpose of these debates "is for the media working for the Democratic Party to dirty up Republicans."
"People hate the media, use that to your advantage Republicans," she added.
