Congressman David Wu Addresses Mental Health, Apologizes for Tiger Suit Photo (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Feb 22nd 2011 2:30PM
In the run-up to last November's election, Oregon Congressman David Wu started to behave erratically. Although Wu was elected to a seventh term, some of his staff was so bothered by his actions that they quit, and others staged an intervention focused on his mental health.

As Wu told George Stephanopolous on Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) he took the intervention to heart, and is now in counseling and taking medication for his mental health issues.

He also addressed an incident in which he sent his staff a wacky picture of himself in a tiger costume.

"A take home lesson from this is that while they were very, very unprofessional you shouldn't ever send photographs of yourself in a Halloween costume ... It's just not professional, even when you're joshing around with your kids a couple nights before Halloween. I did send those photographs. It was unprofessional, inappropriate."

While it's good Wu is getting the help he needs, we're a little bit worried he's scapegoating ridiculous Halloween costumes.

How Will Christiane Amanpour Change ABC's 'This Week?'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 22nd 2010 10:02AM
Christiane AmanpourHere's a bit of news from our "Department of News that Everyone and Their Mother Saw Coming." Needless to say, they've been a little behind with the health care bill debate, and Tiger Woods' apology .

Christiane Amanpour has accepted the offer from ABC's news division to anchor the Sunday show 'This Week,' taking over for George Stephanopolous, who now anchors 'Good Morning America'. This means she'll be leaving CNN where she has racked up an impressive 18-year body of work consisting mostly of international reporting and journalism.

However, does this give her the chops to moderate a political fueled talk fest? There are yeas and nays on both sides of the question.

Including tonight's broadcast, Charles Gibson will occupy the anchor's chair at 'World News' just 11 more times before signing off permanently on Dec. 18, according to Variety.

In a statement posted on ABC's blog, 'The World Newser,' Jon Banner, executive producer of 'World News,' lauded Gibson, who has anchored the program since 2006. He noted how ABC is "preparing to see our very good friend and anchor off as he begins a new journey."

George Stephanopoulos knows a lot of random facts

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jan 20th 2009 2:41PM

I started watching the Inauguration coverage this morning on ABC, where Charlie Gibson intoned about the historical aspects of this event while Diane Sawyer awkwardly tried to keep up. In the third chair was George Stephanopoulos, who I like, but have never paid a whole lot of attention to. He got my attention, however, during this coverage with his constant interjections of random facts.

A few things I learned from George Stephanopoulos this morning:

Election Night: ABC (Part 1)

by Richard Keller, posted Nov 4th 2008 9:02PM

Charlie Gibson of ABC NewsOkay, it's been about 80 minutes since ABC News began their coverage of the elections, and I have just one thing to say: Diane Sawyer is hot! And, I guess George Stephanopoulos is cute, as well. Other than that, there isn't much else to report about the early coverage of the 2008 Presidential election. Which, I have heard, is historic. I know this because I heard it mentioned 550 times since coverage began.

So far, I give high marks to the team of Charles Gibson, Diane Sawyer, and George. I can't put my finger on it, but they seem to be the classiest and most qualified team of the Big Three networks. It's probably Charlie, who is the veteran of all of the current national news anchors. Plus, you know, Diane is hot. Together, they were able to keep the coverage moving during the first hour as the exit poll results were few and far between.

Speaking about those election results ... Thumbs up to ABC for not giving their estimates of winners in those states that are too close to call. Sure, it really didn't do much to pump up the election coverage energy, but it prevented me from throwing my remote at my HDTV screen and screaming that they were ruining the election. By the way, why does ABC's HDTV channel have the lowest volume on any channel? My volume control doesn't go high enough to get the proper sound. So, it's standard analog coverage for me, thank you very much.
