Former ABC News anchor Carole Simpson made some news of her own last night. Simpson, now teaching at Emerson college, was at a Q and A session with Sen. Hillary Clinton in Salem, New Hampshire.
According to the Union Leader Simpson, who was at the session with some of her students, stood up and said she was no longer bound by the tenets of professional journalism to remain objective.
“It’s very freeing now that I’m not a journalist and I can speak my mind. I think you are the woman, and I think this is the time,” Simpson is quoted as saying.
