Gabon Activists Applaud 'Nightline' For Shining Spotlight On Controversial President


Newt Gingrich, Inc.

This week's edition of "Brian Ross Investigates" also features the investigative team's report about Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, and how his charity paid more than $200,000 to one of his for-profit entities.   Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross interviews producer Angela Hill, who caught up with Gingrich in New Hampshire on June 14 to ask him questions about his charity.   "I made at least a half-dozen attempts to speak with him," Hill tells Ross. "Each time he thwarted my attempts and just would not even speak with me at all -- until the end."

A Gingrich spokesperson said that Gingrich had done nothing in violation of the law, and that ABC's report was nothing more than an accounting issue.

This week's show also examines the potential dangers of using cellphones and other personal electronic devices like Blackberrys, iPads and Kindles on planes.   A confidential study by the International Air Transport Association, a trade group representing more 230 passenger and cargo airlines worldwide, documents 75 separate incidents of possible electronic interference that airline pilots and other crew members believed were linked to mobile phones and other electronic devices.
