In other words, the interview that Marianne Gingrich and ABC News conducted in what Marianne admitted was an attempt to derail Newt’s campaign, did nothing to affect people’s opinion of him. Recent polls would seem to bear that out. But in another sense, the blatant malicious intent behind Marianne Gingrich and the unethical assault on Newt by ABC News did provide Newt with an opportunity. An opportunity to successfully rally conservatives together in another widespread denunciation of the liberal media and their obvious liberal biases. And few candidates have been able to do that better or more often than Newt Gingrich has. Throughout the nearly 20 debates that the G.O.P. presidential candidates have particpated in, at least a third of all his extraordinary success in those debates is directly related to his ability to prove the media elites to be partisan hacks for the liberal establishment and essentially corporate satellites for the D.N.C.
Between the the timing of the ABC interview and the fact that everything Marianne stated was literally old news that she repeated in the same script she read to Esquire Magazine 10 years ago, not only was this Nightline interview not news, it was also totally unbalanced.
In a court of law, the testimony provided Marianne in her exchange with Brian Ross would have been considered tainted and the unreliable word of a hostile witness. However; the court of public opinion is far less fair than a court of laws where ethics and rules are followed. In the court of public opinion, the domain of ABC News, Newt Gingrich did not have an opportunity to cross-examine the witness. In ABC News’ circus-like, court of public opinion Marianne Gingrich was not pressed to prove her accusations. She was not asked to show evidence that proved she was telling the truth that she allegedly knew Newt would call her at night while lying with Callista, his eventual wife-to-be, in the bed of the Washington, D.C. apartment that Marianne and Newt called home. But what does the truth have to do with news and journalism?
Ultimately, more people are realizing that not only is Marianne Gingrich an unrelaible character witness, more and more they seeing that the mainstream media is an unreliable source of actual facts and news. They are seeing that networks like ABC are not even pretending to be non-partisan anymore and that when it comes to double standards regarding liberals and conservatives, the mainstream media is overloaded. They see how while the deathbed cheating on Elizabeth Edwards by former Al Gore running mate and liberal North Carolina Senator John Edwards, was an indisputable scandal because it involved a misuse of campaign funds that broke the law, there was not nearly as much attention paid to that breech of conduct and public trust as there is to what is nothing but a personal matter between Gingrich and his ex-wife.
Of course though, the left will accuse the right of having the double standard.
As ABC News reported in the Marianne Gingrich piece, the affair that Newt was having with Callista occurred at the same time Newt was leading the impeachment charge against President Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewisnky affair. The problem is that when you compare apples to oranges, all you have are two different items. In this case, you have two different issues. The Clinton impeachment had little to do with B.J. Clinton’s extramarital affair with a White House intern. Liberals would like you to believe that, but the fact is that issue was not his semen stains on an interns blue dress, it was the fact that the Commander-in-Chief lied under oath to a grand jury. The semen stains were merely evidence that proved the President was guilty of committing perjury. That is a little something called a crime. And according to the Constitution of the United States, certain crimes are impeachable. Did anyone ever hear of Richard Nixon?
The whole Lewinsky impeachment debate had little to do with what President Clinton lied about and everything to do with the fact that he lied and broke the oath he swore when giving his testimony involving the Whitewater investigation, and his presidential oath of office…….you know, the oaths in which you swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth, and swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States.
Newt Gingrich was not on trial for breaking any laws and Marianne Gingrich was not sworn to tell the truth when she took ABC News up on the opportunity to exact revenge on her ex-husband.
Personally, for me, the whole episode did nothing but confirm thatof the mainstream media is sleazy and lacks integrity.
But it did also force me to question one thing about Newt Gingrich. After seeing the frumpy, shrew-like, vindictive Marianne Gingrich in action, I couldn’t help but wonder what poor taste Newt had in the past. What he saw in Marianne Gingrich, I will never know, but after listening to her, I can only thank the good Lord that Newt came to his senses and gave that bitter Biddy what she deserved.
