On ABC's Good Morning America, Chris Cuomo falsely suggested "a new report" found that $72 billion has been misspent this year under the Obama administration. In fact, according to the Heritage Foundation study that Cuomo cited, "The federal government made at least $72 billion in improper payments in 2008," and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) similarly found that "[a]gencies reported improper payment estimates of $72 billion for fiscal year 2008" -- when President Bush was still in office.
On ABC's Good Morning America, Brian Ross asserted that Sen. Hillary Clinton's "delay" in releasing tax returns "has raised a lot of questions," including "whether they paid their taxes like average Americans, or like the super-rich they have become." At no point during the segment did anyone, including Ross, who has falsely asserted that Sen. John McCain released his tax returns, question McCain's "delay."
On Good Morning America, ABC's Brian Ross reported on a 2001 sermon by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of Sen. Barack Obama's church, in which Wright made controversial remarks regarding the 9-11 terrorist attacks. While Ross noted that Obama has said that Wright is "like an old uncle, who sometimes says things I don't agree with," at no point did Ross report that Obama has specifically disagreed with Wright's 9-11 remarks.
