ABC's Bianna Golodryga Encourages the Liberal Ron Reagan to Play Psychic, Channel His Father
Published: 1/25/2011 1:15 PM ET
Good Morning America on Sunday continued to hype the very liberal Ron Reagan and the claims in his new book that his father showed early signs of Alzheimer's while in the White House. The network has now devoted 28 minutes to interviews and segments on the allegations. Host Bianna Golodryga even laughed at Reagan's Sarah Palin joke.
After asking the author what President Reagan would have thought of the former governor of Alaska, Ron Reagan replied, "He would say that, well, she seems like a nice young woman and perhaps, in years to come, with a little more seasoning, she might want to consider running for high office." This prompted Golodryga to giggle and repeat, "A little more seasoning." She then laughed again when he retorted, "Yeah. Or maybe even a lot more."
The Sunday GMA co-host encouraged Ron Reagan to speak for his father: "What do you think your dad would have thought about the political divisiveness we see now?"
Despite giving 28 minutes to Ron Reagan, GMA has yet to feature the new book by his conservative brother, Michael Reagan.
A transcript of the January 23 segment, which aired at 8:42am, follows:
