With his credibility in question, it's entirely possible that ABC could shut their primary political anchor (and longtime Clinton friend) George Stephanopoulos out of covering the 2016 Presidential campaign.
Such a decision, of course, renders ABC's contract with Stephanopoulos moot.
And such a decision rendering Stephanopoulos's contract moot would cost ABC a pretty penny. Because it turns out, they were spending upwards of $100 million to boost their political reporting and news credibility with a guy who seems to possess none.
ABC has plenty of reasons to be freaking out over the George Stephanopoulos scandal — 105 million, to be exact.
The “Good Morning America” and “This Week” anchor renewed his contract last year for $105 million, TV industry sources told The Post Monday.
The seven-year deal — which dwarfs the five-year, $50 million contract scored by since-suspended NBC rival Brian Williams — was supposed to keep Stephanopoulos in front of ABC’s cameras through 2021.
