Why Stephanopoulos' Clinton Foundation Donations Stand Out
Although the Clinton Foundation's donors include media companies and other journalists, only ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos is under fire.By Elizabeth Hagedorn | May 16, 2015
If you’re a journalist, donating to a political cause or campaign is generally a big no-no. In many newsrooms, it’s a fireable offense.
“Thirty years ago, in 1985, after 15 great years, I was fired by ABC News. The official reason was a $200 donation I gave to the non-partisan mayor's race in New Bedford, Massachusetts,” Geraldo Rivera said on Fox News.
At first glance, George Stephanopoulos’ $75,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation would seem to fall under that category.
