Oh, NOW Robin Roberts Thinks There Was ‘a Lot of Red Flags’ in Smollett Case?
By Scott Whitlock | February 25, 2019 1:00 PM EST

Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts, the woman who refused to say the word “alleged” when interviewing Jussie Smollett, has suddenly discovered that there were “a lot of red flags” in the hate crimes case, now widely dismissed as a hoax. Roberts got a do-over on Monday as she interviewed Chicago’s superintendent of police, Eddie Johnson.

At times, Roberts seemed tougher on Johnson than Smollett, demanding details and offering follow-ups. But first, the host tried to rewrite history and pretend she saw problems from the start: “Even though you were saying early on that there was no reason not to believe his story, there were a lot of red flags that a lot of people saw and you all had questions.”

Because only a gay African American can interview another gay African American (Smollett, not Johnson)

If you watch that interview  with Jussie , it’s obvious that she’s buying it hook,  line, and sinker

If she harbored  any doubts she wouldn’t given him a platform
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Of course she believed it. Few in the media didn't jump on the "evil Trumpsters beat up innocent black gay man" bandwagon.
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

Robin Roberts doesn't "think" anything. She was hired because she is a minority female,and a two-fer when it comes to AA.
