Gayle King Causes Friction with Obama Interview


Gayle King accused of calling in a favor from her bestie Oprah Winfrey to help her upstage 60 Minutes with her Barack Obama interview...

“Obama literally did dozens of interviews on November 10, and every single one of them were embargoed until after 60 Minutes aired on Sunday, except for Gayle King’s interview,” sources tell OK!.
“60 Minutes has always given out soundbites and clips from its exclusives to entice viewers to tune-in to their Sunday night’s show, but Gayle wanted her own interview despite being on the same network — and she got it,” sources add.
“Gayle’s best friend is Oprah, and Oprah is also best friends with Barack and Michelle Obama, this isn’t a coincidence. No one is saying Gayle isn’t an excellent journalist, what they are saying is that the interview with President Obama should have gone to 60 Minutes first. There is a lot of anger inside the building at the bosses for letting this happen.”

So Trump can hire his fashion designer daughter, who has NO experience in politics nor the law in general, as a White House advisor but they mad at Gayle for using her connections to get an interview?? 😂😂😂 GTFOH

@12:26pm Exactly. I'm sure its a little payback for Oprah against 60 minutes. Remember when Oprah was on the show and the executives didn't like the way she introduced stories saying like she was doing her talk show?

Well don't hate the player, hate the game!

A Black woman journalist got the scoop on interviewing a Black President who's a friend (of a friend). Big whoop. Whitey does that kind of crap all day long. Stay big mad.

Laa soul this is 12:26. I didn't know that's why she left. They wanted her as a draw to the show. She only did a couple of shows and she was ghost. You cant tell Oprah how to open a story. She don't need them.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that saw no issue with this. Since when is it bad business to use your connections to get ahead? She didn't do anything illegal or unethical, she simply got a friend to hook her up.

Gail, also, got rid of all of her female co-hosts(morning show), so she was the center of attention. Wow, this will all come back to bite her.
