*ABC News broke into scheduled programming Tuesday afternoon to announce that “GMA” anchor George Stephanopoulos just completed the first interview with police officer Darren Wilson about his shooting of Michael Brown.
Stephanopoulos told viewers that he spent more than an hour with Wilson in a “secret location.” He said Wilson told him that he is “sorry” for the death of Brown, but that he would not do “anything different” if he were to relive that day.
“He does not think he could have done anything differently,” Stephanopoulos said. “He says he did what he was trained to do. He has a clean conscience over his actions that day.”
The network confirmed in a press release that the rest of the interview will air Tuesday, Nov. 25, on “World News with David Muir” and “Nightline” and Wednesday, Nov. 26, on “Good Morning America.”
Politico’s Dylan Byers first reported Monday night that Stephanopoulos was expected to land the interview. That report arrived after word spread that several other news anchors had met with Wilson in an attempt to secure the coveted interview, including NBC’s Matt Lauer, CBS’ Scott Pelley and CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon.
