Watching Newt Gingrich take down CNN's John King was refreshing, even invigorating. It would have been even sweeter had Gingrich asked King whether or not he was aware of the affair between John Edwards and Reille Hunter at the time he was reporting on the 2004 Presidential campaign. If yes, why didn't you ask him about it? If no, how do you call yourself a journalist?
But here's where I'm confused.
Gingrich finally got around to declaring Marianne Gingrich's allegations “false” and said that his campaign had offered several mutual friends who could disprove the charges but that ABC declined to use them.
How would a mutual friend be able to disprove Marianne Gingrich's allegations? Were any of them present for the conversation that she described in her interview? Seems unlikely, unless maybe Callista was hiding in the closet at the time. But then how would Callista qualify as a "mutual friend" to Marianne Gingrich.
