George Stephanopoulos Touts Attacks By O'Donnell Opponents: She's a 'Nutty,' 'Mentally Unhinged' 'Liar'

Liberal journalists don't usually highlight Karl Rove as an authoritative voice, but that's what George Stephanopoulos did on Wednesday's Good Morning America. Interviewing senatorial nominee Christine O'Donnell, the ABC host touted the conservative strategist's dismissal of the Delaware Republican for saying "some nutty things."
Stephanopoulos also played up charges by Delaware's Republican Party Chairman Tom Ross that O'Donnell is a "liar" and "mentally unhinged." The ABC host wondered if her primary victory could "help the Democrats."
Stephanopoulos noted only negative news for the surprise winner of the Delaware senatorial primary, asserting that "...The national Republican Party is not going to give you any funds." (This later turned out not to be true.)
