ABC Touts Klobuchar’s ‘Moderate Politics’, Ignores ‘Staff Horror Stories’

Shortly before ABC downplayed the anti-Semitic comments of Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) on Monday, World News Tonight touted Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar (D) for throwing her hat into the 2020 presidential campaign. But while liberals of ABC were busy touting Klobuchar (and other Democrats), they largely ignored what Politico called the “staff horror stories” plaguing her campaign rollout.

In the middle of a Minnesota snowstorm (…) Senator Amy Klobuchar promising her moderate politics and mid-western roots will win over key states that handed Donald Trump the White House,” reported ABC congressional and anti-GOP correspondent Mary Bruce.

The closest Bruce came to acknowledging the “horror stories” was a brief call back to the softball questions Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos lobbed to Klobuchar that morning:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: What do you think is fair about that criticism and what have you learned from it?

AMY KLOBUCHAR: Well, first of all, I love my staff. I am tough, I push people, that is true. But my point is, is that I have high expectations for myself, I have high expectations for the people that work for me, and I have high expectations for this country.

What went conspicuously unmentioned by Bruce were the “former aides, speaking anonymously for fear of retribution,” as Politico wrote. Those former aides “described a toxic office environment including demeaning emails, thrown office supplies and requests for staff to perform personal chores for the senator.”
