ABC’s Karl on Weiner’s phony outrage

ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl did a sit-down interview with embattled New York Congressman Anthony Weiner days ago, back when Weiner was still determinedly following the exact wrong script on how to weather a political scandal, lying up and down about how photos of his crotch ended up on the internet, denying the undeniable and preening with faux outrage at Karl and other members of the press for asking questions. Karl, though, has more than a barrel of ink at his disposal to set the record straight. Yesterday he sent out an email blast to reporters around the country that included video excerpts and a transcript from the interview. "At the time, it seemed that the most remarkable part was when he told me he could not say for sure whether or not it was him in that infamous underwear photograph," Karl writes.
