Appearances lend to or subtract from credibility. That is why this ABC anchor is in trouble. He should have known that by donating to the Clinton charity he was compromising the perception of objectivity that reporters try to maintain. He also should have known that failure to disclose the significant sums was putting himself in the crosshairs of the Republican Party's wrath. So, what does he do now? ABC says that it stands by him, but by his own admission, he can't report on Republican candidates during this campaign season. How could such an intelligent individual made such a gaffe? He probably didn't think much of it when he wrote his checks. He has been close to the Clintons for a long time. If he survives this uproar, one can be sure he will be more careful in the future.
