LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - ABC's George Stephanopoulos secured an interview with Officer Darren Wilson, the police officer who was at the center of the spiraling controversy in Ferguson, Missouri, the anchor said in a post on Twitter.
In doing so, the ABC News Chief Anchor may have won a TV-news scrum of sorts. Several other outlets have vied for an interview with the police officer who a grand jury last night declined to indict in the shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager.
