ABC Breaks, Then Ignores News on Obama White House Ties to Solyndra
September 15, 2011 by Scott Whitlock

On Tuesday and Wednesday’s World News, reporter Brian Ross exposed e-mails indicating that the Obama administration gave a $535 million loan to the green company Solyndra, despite deep misgivings inside the government about its viability. Yet, Good Morning America has declined to follow-up on the ABC scoop.

GMA completely ignored the story, failing to even mention it in a news brief. The morning show did, however, find time to devote over five minutes to the divorce of reality TV star Michaele Salahi. While his own network minimized the new developments, Ross was able to explain the details on Wednesday’s O’Reilly Factor.

He warned that the controversy goes “right to the door of the White House. New e-mails that came out today at a congressional hearing revealed the pressure put on people inside the White House to move up the timing” of the loan.

Ross told Bill O’Reilly that he was stunned to learn that “early in the year, the White House became aware the company was about to go bankrupt. Now, the government, the White House told us and the company told people in Congress, everything was great, rosy projections at a time they knew they were running out of cash.”
