ABC’s Karl Jeers ‘Disturbing’ Gingrich Campaign Video

While reporting on candidate Newt Gingrich "taking a pummeling" from "brutal" attack ads, ABC's Jonathan Karl noted Gingrich's positive response – a "bizarre" Gingrich campaign Christmas video that Karl laughed off as "disturbing." Karl's report aired during the 7 a.m. hour of Good Morning America.

"Uh, it's a little disturbing, let me tell you," Karl scoffed at the festive video. A clip showed campaign workers decked in Santa hats singing a campaign-themed Christmas carol. [Video coming shortly.]

Karl's report had highlighted accusations and negative ads from the various Republican candidates – par for the course in any election, but which the ABC News correspondent labeled "personal" and "brutal."

"And let me tell you, it is getting personal out there. The once high-flying Gingrich campaign is trying to regain momentum. He's promising still to run a positive campaign, but check out at how he is lashing out at his opponents," Karl began his report.
