April Ryan Strikes Again!

December 14, 2009

April Ryan first came onto my all-powerful radar last week with this exchange with press secretary Robert Gibbs. I was taken aback by the tabloid-y nature of her inquiry. Apparently, though, she made an impression on someone at ABC, as she ended up as part of the “Roundtable” on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Ms. Ryan had almost nothing of substance to say during the Roundtable and I got the distinct impression she had memorized her pro-forma responses beforehand; she used the majority of her time to spout predictable fill-in-the-blank punditry.

One exception was when she contrived to detour a general discussion about jobs to talk about unemployment in the Africa-American community, more or less ignoring the direct question (her first of the day, no less) from Stephanopoulos. Check out her semi-hijack here, at about the -4:50 mark. (no embedding allowed by ABC, I guess).
