Several network news anchors are believed to have met with Wilson in the hopes of doing his first interview after the grand jury’s decision in the death of Michael Brown, though sources tell TVNewser CBS News anchor Scott Pelley, who had been named as having had a face-to-face with Wilson, in fact did not.
More: Edited excerpts will air on “World News Tonight” and “Nightline” Tuesday, and Wednesday’s “Good Morning America.” The full interview will post on ABCNews.com tomorrow.
ABC broke into programming around 2:35pmET with Stephanopoulos anchoring a special report to promote the interview. “I’ve spent over an hour at a secret location with officer Darren Wilson,” he said, adding, “I asked him directly, I pressed him, I said, ‘would this have gone down any differently if Michael Brown were white?’ He said ‘absolutely not.’ He says he has a clean conscience over his actions that day.”
