ABC Downplays Omar’s Outbursts at Jews as a Dem ‘Family Feud’ Over 'Israel'


[See NewsBusters for more.] The journalists at Good Morning America on Wednesday downplayed the latest anti-Jewish outburst by Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar as simply a “family feud” over Israel. And while Good Morning America reported that something happened with Omar, that she said *something,* the network didn't define the remarks targeting Jews and supporters of Israel. Co-host George Stephanopoulos introduced the subject of anti-Semitism this way, explaining fellow liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s response this way: “On a different subject, part of a new struggle inside the Democratic Party. She is defending her fellow freshman Ilhan Omar who made some remarks that were perceived as anti-Israel.”
