America’s most wanted man: Major networks scrambling to score first interview with Darren Wilson

wilsonWith many signs pointing to a grand jury exonerating police officer Darren Wilson in the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, the major news networks are said to be clamoring to score an interview with the beleaguered officer.

According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, host of “Reliable Sources,” several top news anchors have secretly spoken with Wilson in the lead-up to an expected decision from the grand jury, hoping to be the first to get an interview.

Among those Stetler named are ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, CBS News’ Scott Pelley, NBC’s Matt Lauer, and from his own network, Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon.

There could be others, including an anchor from Fox News, but none of the networks have confirmed the report.

“My sense from my sources is that it’s mostly the anchors doing the talking in these off-the-record meetings, it’s mostly Darren Wilson listening and getting to know the person,” Stelter said Sunday.

Wilson has not been seen publicly since his fateful encounter with Brown, and information leaked from the grand jury investigation suggest the evidence is not there to charge him. There have also been recent reports that he is negotiating with the Ferguson Police Department to resign after the grand jury decision.
