Reporter Matt Guttman actually lumped in weather delays with a shortage of Federal Aviation Association (FAA) air traffic controllers. On Monday, George Stephanopoulos warned of an "airport armageddon." &nbsp;The next day, Gutman seemed to contradict this, admitting, "[We] didn't really find an airline apocalypse." However, using a slight of hand, he quickly moved on: "But all those little delays, either caused by a shortage of FAA controllers or by the weather, started to snowball into delays of four and five hours." Using hyperbole almost identical to Stephanopoulos, Gutman hyperventilated, "<strong>But Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood warns ABC News, we might see an airplane apocalypse</strong>."</p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;"><br />Video cross-posted at <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2013/04/23/abc-doubles-down…;
