'Good Morning, America' co-anchors Amy Robach & T. J. Holmes were hounded by the tabloid press for having an affair. They're off the air now, but why were they targeted in the first place?
Thanks for calling out the hypocrisy in this story. I don't follow the morning shows but when this came to light I saw through the whole thing. My first thought was what about Mika and Joe. Totally agree with your assessment.
I found myself agreeing with your opinions here, Andrew. I don’t like the vilification of TJ and the pass for Amy that seems to be the theme of most articles. I hope this is the real thing for them - they certainly seem to be all in, and willing to do what it takes to be “out there” as a couple.
Good for them!
Absolutely loved this analysis and you have a beautiful speaking voice. In reference to the British tabloids taking the lead on this story, I think it's important to note the Epstein/Prince Andrew link with ABC's silencing of Amy Robach a few years ago. ABC forced her to drop her exclusive Epstein story because the Palace apparently threatened to block them from covering certain royal events, which I guess made them shake in their boots.
So you mentioned that someone was purposely targeting Amy and TJ, it's quite possible that that's what gained the Dailymail's interest in the story in the first place.
Thank you for pointing out the hypocrisy of this "scandal". I don't understand the right wing obsession with this couple or Megan Markle. Watching English TV programs, blended families are part of almost every drama. It really is not possible to turn the clock back to a time when the law prohibited adults from different races to openly love and live together. It really is none of our business and definitely is racism thinly disguised as " news".
I think it's obvious. I'm sure you remember the nastiness around Bryant Gumble and Jane Pauley just working together. Times change, but at a glacial pace.
