[See NewsBusters for more.] Showcasing an extreme conflict of interest, it was revealed on Thursday that George Stephanopoulos donated $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation and did not disclose the contribution to the public or his employer, ABC. A look back at past interviews shows a cozy Stephanopoulos fawning over the charity. On September 24, 2014, the Good Morning America host praised, "The annual Clinton Global Initiative brings together world leaders...and celebrities, re-imagining the world and taking action."  As though he were reading from an infomercial, Stephanopoulos parroted, "CGI has a simple mission, 'turn ideas into action.' And we're seeing the results right here at home." In contrast, Stephanopoulos aggressively questioned Peter Schweizer, the man who is investigating the finances of the foundation.
