ABC’s George Stephanopoulos is in Sochi, Russia today where he got an interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin. The Sochi Olympics, as you are well aware, are on the networks and stations of NBCUniversal, so Stephanopoulos getting this interview ahead of NBC’s is quite a coup. Stephanopoulos asked Putin about security for the games, his position on gay rights, NSA leaker Edward Snowden, and other topics. The “GMA” anchor returns from Russia today and will be hosting “This Week” Sunday as usual.
