Meth,chicken chasers..and unedited Newt

The following is a partial unedited air check from the year 1995.   The main WSB-TV story is about meth and how it came to Georgia.   But at the end of the air check, you’ll see a tease about Newt Gingrich, the man who would be President.You may recall that Gingrich was angry about an interview that Connie Chung had done with his mother, Kathleen.  Ms. Gingrich told Chung she could not say what her son thought about then First Lady Hillary Clinton.  Chung asked Ms. Gingrich  to, “just whisper it to me, just between you and me,” and Mrs. Gingrich replied that her son thought of Clinton as a “bitch”.  The “just between you and me” phrase became a favorite of comedians as Gingrich implemented his “Contract with America”.
