Connie Chung Interviews Kathleen Gingrich

Remember This?  This clip was from a 1995 Connie Chung interview with then Speaker Newt Gingrich’s late mother, Kathleen Gingrich.  If you will remember,  at the time, Chung was co-anchor of CBS Evening News along with Dan Rather.  Chung is married to cheesy television giant, Maury Povich, best known for his “who’s your daddy” meme television show.  

The interview with Mrs. Gingrich was broadcast on a second Chung show, airing during the same period, called “Eye To Eye With Connie Chung.”  In the interview, Chung asks the elderly Mrs. Gingrich, who is hilariously dragging on a cigarette, what her son Newt thought of Hillary Clinton.  What happened next (you gotta watch the video), set off a firestorm of criticism and illustrates the ongoing media bias against conservatives.  Even back then, there was a “gotcha” mentality, that seemed to only be applied to conservatives.

    That was a real “gotcha” question alright. Just like “what papers & magazines do you read?” a true “gotcha” question would be “Mr. Speaker do you still cheat on your wife?”.

    @Conservative I didn’t say it was a gotcha “question.” I said it illustrated a gotcha “mentality” towards conservatives that existed even back then. You ought to know that, afterall, you are a conservative, right?
