Laura Ingraham on ‘This Week:’ ‘I Might Not be Invited Back, George;’ Calls Out Charlie Gibson over ACORN Awareness

This morning, the “Roundtable” on ABC’s “This Week” discussed the White House’s war with Fox News Channel.

Referring to comments made by White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, George Will says that Fox News might be “opinion journalism,” but that also “describes The New York Times, and certainly MSNBC.”

Laura Ingraham pointed out that when “esteemed journalist” Charlie Gibson had no clue about the ACORN scandal, there was “a collective gasp across the United States.”

“Charlie has had an amazing career,” said Stephanopoulos. “Let’s set aside that moment.” Much more in the clip:

Pitney held his own trying to explain the White House involvement, but then the conversation turned to Milbank’s reporting during the Bush administration.

At one point, host Howard Kurtz said, “You two are going to have to take this outside.” A CNN edited version of the segment below:
