RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

CABRERA: "Exactly. You're our media expert. How does he use the media going forward?"
STELTER: "I think in retrospect, that Good Morning America interview which allowed him to tell his side of the story made things worse for him. Perhaps the questioning was not tough enough on Good Morning America. But this is not about the media or politicians or activists, or other people that might have been fooled. It is about Jussie. This is about why he might, we don't know, why he might have made this up. It just boggles the mind."
