Media Matters: ABC News & The Whitewater Tactics At The Center Of The Scandal Machine

…. ABC’s flawed reporting on the emails, based on selective leaks, has led to questions about reporter Jonathan Karl’s future, vividly demonstrating the consequences of this type of press manipulation. But whether fellow journalists – and viewers – will demand accountability from Karl remains to be seen.

It’s the Whitewater experience, which GOP leaders are reportedly skittish of repeating, that provides a blueprint for accountability over this type of press manipulation.

…. Will the media, which once again saw one of their own get burned by relying on selective leaks in furtherance of a hunting of a president, demand accountability this time?

The more you look at this report, the more (literally) incredible it is – and thrown in, for good measure, edits of Jay Carney (from 0:18) to make him look like a bumbling fool. Truly, Fox out-Foxed by ABC.

****

Michael Tomasky: Will ABC Finger the Liar?

….. ABC News, if you ask me, has had a worse week than Obama, not that as many people are paying attention. But consider. CNN and Jake Tapper got the actual emails, proving beyond a doubt that ABC and Karl were wrong. And on CBS, Scott Pelley and Major Garrett took the unheard of step of basically calling news gatherers at a fellow network liars.

…. The record up to today suggests that the government is a good measure more trustworthy than ABC News–and, don’t forget, than whoever it was (surely a GOP source of some kind) who lied to Karl in the first place.

Mediaite: Does Jon Karl Have The Juice To Survive Benghazi Email Controversy?

….. Even the best reporter can get played by a source with an ax to grind, but by presenting that source’s misinformation as a series of direct quotes from emails that the source made up, Jonathan Karl bought and paid for the consequences, and so did ABC News. They both owe their viewers, and this White House, an apology.

USA Today: Carole King has a friend in President Obama.

The White House announced Friday that the president and first lady Michelle Obama will host a concert on Wednesday to honor King, 2013 recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

Among the scheduled performers: James Taylor, Gloria Estefan, Billy Joel – :cry: – Jesse McCartney, Emeli Sande and Trisha Yearwood, as well as King herself.

Steve Benen: First up from the God Machine this week is a story out of South Florida, in which a mayoral candidate claimed an unusual political endorsement, which did not turn out especially well.

I’ve reported on developments at the intersection of religion and politics for a good chunk of my career, but I don’t recall ever seeing a politician claim to have been literally endorsed by Jesus Christ…..

    Hi-de-ho to all my O’s!!!! I see we’ve finally risen and shizen on this great getting up day for a TOD picnic!

    I’m crossing my fingers that we’ve finally broken the back of winter, because today I’m moving the indoor plants outside and doing the winter to summer clothes closet/trunk conversion. Tomorrow is the deck cleaning and protection applications, lawn furniture stuff, weeding/feeding, and hopefully a great Memorial Day celebration. All this just in time to pack it all away again in a few months. That’s Chicago for you. Blink and a new season is upon us.

        I learned my lesson. Several years ago I lost my house plants, which are veeeerry temperature sensitive, after a cold front moved through in JUNE! I didn’t bring them in overnight, and even though they fought so valiantly, they just couldn’t survive, . I still carry the heavy burden of guilt.

      I’m not so sure Karl was taken for a fool. I think he was a more than willing participant, especially after reading about his background and grooming to be a conservative infiltrator in our mainstream news media. Frightening revelation, actually. The shame is the silence and non-action by ABC News, keeping such an unethical person in their employ after his dirty deeds have been exposed.

      About time the media began to hold these people responsible. I will continue my one person email campaign to get ABC to apologize to the president and viewers, and to fire Jon Karl. Perhaps I’m just a voice crying in the wilderness, but combined with the media calls, maybe something will have to happen.

      Assuming that it was a staff member who leaked the email, obviously the staffer was determined to be dispensable. If a name does come out, congress person will claim that the staffer was acting on his/her own and that staffer will take the fall.

  19. May 18, 2013 at 11:31 am

    Completely off topic.

    But you guys, I had an experience on my morning walk today. So, my sister who lives in Maryland and I here in Florida, we try to walk regularly. We talk on the phone until we complete our hour. We start off and always end up at home at the same time. Anyway, so this morning I am almost home, just about to turn the corner to go to my house. On the corner street is a house that I have NEVER seen anyone in, although there are always about four cars parked in the drive way.

    So just as I was about to pass this house, there is a young man on the porch, could have been anywhere from 14-17. He had what appeared to be a gun in his hand. He appeared to have been trying to bend it like when they open it up to put bullets in. In any case, he seemed to be struggling to get that done. When I saw him, I froze. I lowered my voice, told my sister I was turning around because of what I had just seen. I gingerly marched right back down the hill and walked another 15 minutes the other way to my house.

    I didn’t want him to be messing with that thing and hit me accidently. Because of course, I could hear them now saying he was standing his ground. I high tailed it out of there like never before.

    Despite being scared to death, I did get another 15 minutes of walk in.

    Whew!

    • May 18, 2013 at 11:36 am

      That is terrifying Africa, have you any idea who he was? Was that house always empty, or do you think he lives there?

      • May 18, 2013 at 11:44 am

        I have never, ever seen anyone come out of that house. I go pass it whenever I walk. And there’s always been about four cars lined up in the drive way. But never, ever seen anyone come out. I don’t know if the kid lives there. But that was waaaaay scary. He seemed to not know what the heck he was doing.

    Bringing this over from the previous post…

    Blog tyrants, I have an idea for a future Night Owl Music Chat…

    There are a number of music/movie buffs on this blog. There are many movie theme songs, songs created for movies, songs made popular in movies, etc. I thought a good Night Owl movie chat might be one with some favorite songs from movies. I’m sure a lot of you have some favorites from movie classics to more recent movies.

    Some songs that come to mind are
    • “Lara’s Theme” from Dr. Zhivago
    • “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s
    • “In the Arms of the Angel” from City of Angels
    • “ St. Elmo’s Fire Love Theme” from St. Elmo’s Fire
    • “The Glory of Love” from The Karate Kid
    • “Up Where We Belong” from An Officer and A Gentleman
    • “Evergreen” from A Star is Born
    • “Aquarius” from Hair
    • “What A Feeling” from Flashdance

    Would love to know what movie songs other TODers like.

    In deference to Chips and her ishness time table, I suggest that all timepieces, analog and digital to be revamped to include an ‘ish’ option.

    Here’s how I see it.

    On an analog timepiece there would be an ‘ish’ hand. There would also be a sixth dot that appears after each number 1 thru 12. When the ‘ish’ hand lands on this new dot, then the time is whatever number is closest to the ‘ish’ dot. So for example, if the hour hand is on 1 and the minute hand is on 3 and the ‘ish hand is on the new sixth dot between the 7 and 8, then it is either 1:15, or 7:15, or 1:18, or 8:73, or…….

    On digital clocks there would be a setting button to indicate you want the ‘ish’ option. Sorta like the am/pm set button option. It would read am/pm/ish. If you elect ‘ish’, your reading would display, for example: 1:53:15 am/ish, or 12:pm/ish, or just plain ish:ish am.

    Though I don’t know if anyone other than a TODster would understand ishness, I think it’s well worth the effort to make this a world standard.

  36. 128 globalcitizenlinda
    May 18, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    Chips, remember the suspicion that we had about ABC’s Jonathan Karl and the fact that he had an “exclusive” access to Benghazi emails just a few days after he asked PBO the foolish “juice question”?

    Our conclusion was that Jon Karl was someone to keep a very close an eye on.

    Guess our instincts were well-founded about some creepy!

    Before his latest role in dissemination of the Deliberately Edited Benghazi Emails, I had not bothered to read more about Jonathan Karl’s back ground in DC politics.

    Please review Karl’s background and you will find that he is someone who the republicans (including Ken Starr & Trent Lott) are very comfortable about giving breaking news about political events that are crucial to what happens in DC. I did not know that he was the first to report contents of Ken Starr’s report. He has followed republicans around the campaign trail and in their positions in government.

    Is me wonder, is Karl one of the channels through which gop lies are mainstreamed?

    From my inbox:

    Take a minute and read this — you’re going to want to share it.

    A 7-year-old boy named Myles recently wrote to Vice President Biden to suggest a way to make the world a safer place: make bullets out of chocolate.

    You’ll love how the Vice President responded:

    Dear Myles —
    I am sorry it took me so very long to respond to your letter.
    I really like your idea. If we had guns that shot chocolate, not only would our country be safer, it would be happier. People love chocolate.

    You are a good boy.
    — Joe Biden

    This is pretty darn cute all around. And it makes you stop and think about just how obvious the need is in America to finally address gun violence.
    Myles has a plan. Why can’t Congress pass one?

    So I just read on a really RWNJ site that they think the whole IRS scandal is not really about PBO. They are saying that because this happened under a Bush IRS appointee, that it’s the elite Republicans attempt to go after the tea party 501C4 applicants.

    The circus is in town, and the clowns are on the loose.

      we knew that at the end, issues staged to attack PBO often result into some form of backfiring to the originator.

      can imagine chaos among gop ranks if tea party follows the argument you are indicating here

      As far as I am concern Benghazi was only a scandal in the mind of the right wing Obama haters, and the anti-Obama media. Losing those 4 Americans was bad, but where was the scandal?

      Miranda, she’s a senior correspondent at ABC, I doubt that makes her Karl’s boss?? Or has her role changed there?

      Besides, CLaire Shipman or something like that is her name…..ABC severely reduced her reporting, actually, Zero reporting on anything to do with pres Obama and his Team.

      Sorry Miranda……Please Link your source…….I heard this from Her many years ago. This was when her Husband was VP Biden’s Press Secretary.

    I think that Democrats are missing the opportunity to expose the obvious way media types are regularly attacking PBO with GOP talking points – a factor that explains the Benghazi Email forgery.

    Because, I suspect that there is an elected official who is involved in this huge document forgery that has further facilitated gop’s doing the people’s legislative business, I decided to ask FBI to investigate WHO edited the emails.
