If you haven’t heard already, Drudge is reporting that Newt’s ex-wife has unloaded on him in a 2 hour interview with ABC News. Suddenly, ABC News went into a civil war over when to air the video because of the South Carolina Primary this weekend. Here are the details from Drudge:
Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband’s career with a single interview.
Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail.
But now a “civil war” has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly when the confession will air!
ABCNEWS suits determined it would be “unethical” to run the Marianne Gingrich interview so close to the South Carolina Primary, a curious decision, one insider argued, since the network has aggressively been reporting on other candidates.
A decision was tentatively made to air the interview next Monday, after all votes have been counted.
Gingrich canceled a press conference on Wednesday to deal with the matter. …
Levin covered this on the air and put this into perspective considering how little we know about Obama, his hidden records and shady dealings:
I for one could care less about what Newt’s ex-wife says. We all know he was a dirtbag and I’ve already given him the benefit of the doubt on the fact that he’s changed. After all, this country is at stake and I’m not going to let some 2-bit media outlet sworn to defend Obama and his Marxist policies at all costs dissuade me from who I’m going to vote for in the primary.
And btw, I’m not saying I’m voting for Newt yet, but he is in my top three.
UPDATE: The AP says that ABC will release the interview on Thursday night on Nightline:
An ABC News executive tells The Associated Press that the network has interviewed Newt Gingrich’s second wife and is likely to air the segment Thursday on “Nightline.”
That’s two days before the South Carolina primary, where the Republican presidential candidate is trying to topple GOP front-runner Mitt Romney.
The ABC News executive did not indicate what the ex-wife, Marianne, said in the interview and spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plans for airing the interview were tentative.
