In a MediaBeat interview conducted at ABC’s Washington Bureau, Karl told us about the need to remain skeptical of what the White House is telling you, regardless of who’s in office. He also revealed some interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits from campaign 2012. You might be surprised to know how little Karl saw candidate Mitt Romney—even when flying on the same plane.
