The network that failed to disclose Stephanopoulos’ own controversial donations is at it again.
ABC’s This Week failed to disclose that Dr. Atul Gawande, who appeared on the program to discuss the American Health Care Act (AHCA), was also a Democratic donor, on Sunday.
Going on before Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Dr. Gawande was extremely critical of the law.
“This is a bill that makes each measure of health and health care worse, rather than better than under Obamacare. It’s not a proposal that anybody would put forward as a credible or sane proposal for solving the problems in Obamacare,” Gawande told Stephanopoulos.
Stephanopoulos opened the interview by introducing Gawande saying he was a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, a professor at Harvard, a staff writer at the New Yorker, and a New York Times bestselling author.
However, ABC and Stephanopoulos failed to disclose that Gawande contributed over $2,000 to Democratic candidates over the years, according to OpenSecrets.
The network experienced a considerable backlash when George Stephanopoulos failed to disclose that he had donated to the Clinton Foundation before interviewing Hillary Clinton, during the 2016 Presidential cycle.
