God bless Jonathan Karl. He works for ABC News but, surprisingly, he actually knows how to commit journalism.
We’ve seen Karl challenge the White House talking points repeatedly. We’ve praised him in this space for his efforts.
Today, he outdid himself.
As the whole world knows by now, Judicial Watch has obtained a White House email dictating what clearly appears to be certain talking points for Susan Rice, who was the UN Ambassador during the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi. She received that email in the wake of the attack and then went on every single Sunday talk show to basically regurgitate the falsehood promoted in it. That is, that the attack on the embassy was a response to a YouTube video.
Jonathan Karl decided to ask White House Press Secretary Jay Carney about the incriminating email today. His forceful line of questioning coupled with his unwillingness to accept any spin in Carney’s answer should have left the White House spokesman feeling like he was about 10 inches tall. It’s really an enjoyable exchange.
Have a look at the video below.
