George Stephanopoulos made a name for himself first as a spokesman for President Clinton and, currently, as anchor for ABC’s Good Morning America and This Week (wiki). And at least in the short term, Stephanopoulos has created a journalistic firestorm when he challenged Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash, a book that detailed financial contributions to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State.

During the interview, Stephanopoulos challenged Schweizer over possible Clinton quid pro quo over financial contributions from corporations and foreign entities to the Clinton Foundation and the need for further investigation.

Conflict of interest? Sure. Stephanopoulos is a Democrat and will likely donate to the Clinton campaign. On the other hand, Schweizer worked for Republican administrations.

Former politicians, operatives, and appointees routinely move into the newsroom as commentators, contributors, or as hosts of “news” programs on network news and cable news channels. Lapses in judgments aside, omissions like this one from Stephanopoulos to his former boss’ global foundation are common occurrences which should not be a shock to anyone.
