Yet another media hit piece coming your way, presented to you by our national liberal media outlet, ABC.
First we had Herman Cain's debacle, when all the 'run of the mill' media folks globed on to the Gloria Allred inspired extra marital affairs bandwagon of un-proven advances by Cain.
It was nothing but a 'he said, she said' circus.
Results, Cain's campaign comes to an end.
Now we have a new angle, coming from the likes of ABC.
Tonight, before the ink has dried on reports from the South Carolina debate, and just two days before the South Carolina primary vote, ABC NightLine will air another 'he said, she said' hit piece. This time from the ex-wife of the poll surging Newt Gingrich. (Isn't this convenient?)
Marianne Gingrich will lay claim to the nation that Newt has no moral character to be President.
An appetizer comment, tossed out their today by ABC, that 'Newt sought an "open marriage" arrangement so he could have a mistress and a wife, will be spewed. Gingrich admitted to a six-year affair with a Congressional aide, but based on what Marianne said "he asked me if I would share him with the other woman, Callista'....
Holy hell. Does she REALLY expect that the country is going to believe that the Speaker of the House, a highly public figure, would ask this of his then wife for an open marriage?
A wife and a mistress.... ALL IN THE OPEN and ON THE RECORD?
PLEASE! LOL it's laughable!
But then we have a little history, when during Gingrich's ethics investigations Marianne Gingrich defended Newt's ethics while he served in Congress. So he's got ethic, but no morels. Those usually go hand in hand.
Newt’s daughters weighed in on the forthcoming interview by submitting a letter to ABC, stating in part "they would not say anything negative about Marianne and said their father regrets any pain he may have caused in the past to people he loves."
Marianne, in response said "Newt has never expressed any such regrets."
So, what this all boils down to is this.
She is a scored ex-wife who is still reeling bitterly after 12 years since the divorce.
And how much DID ABC pay her for this juicy bit of 'gossip' I am wondering?
And if you don't remember, all this came out in an Esquire Magazine interview with Marianne in 2010.
So why did ABC work so hard to get the interview now???
Brian Ross told the Washington-based ABC News Radio affiliate that ABC News had been trying to land the interview with Marianne Gingrich since November.
November??? Same month as the Cain fiascos heated up. HMMMMM
