ABC Welcomes Right, While Some Seem Obsessed
Big Journalism ^ | 10/29/10 | Dan Riehl

Breitbartians are crashing the gate of ABC’s election night coverage, while still other media outlets appear to be obsessed, as if the Right has gotten inside their heads.

It’s great to see ABC inviting Dana and Andrew into their election night coverage. See here for more, including some of what the Bigs have in store for election night.

ABC announced their election night coverage early on and Big Journalism Editor Dana Loesch will join the network in studio for 6 p.m. – 2 a.m. election night; Bigs founder and head of the Breitbart empire Andrew Breitbart will be bringing analysis live from Arizona.

An interesting difference.

Will Couric be with the great unwashed, or will she be taking a bath?

I haven't watched ABC since Charlie Gibson attempted to backhand Sarah Palin verbally a couple of years ago. As far as I'm concerned, they've got some proving themselves as receptive to conservatives to do before I'll ever watch them again. If Joy Behar is an example of people on their payroll, I'm staying clear of them and its the same for most of the people I know locally and online.

Hopefully the "bath" will be after the elections - it'll be interesting to watch the lib anchors the day after the elections. Likely "perky" probably won't be Katie's demeanor afterwards,

Andrew is great. But, if by Dana, they mean little broad who used to be Bush’s RINO mouthpiece, I would hardly call that welcoming in the right. More like vacuous eye candy.

For Breitbart to have crawled back this far from what was spun as a debacle with the Shirley Sherrod episode would seem to show that there is a lot to yet be revealed about Ms. Sherrod that is in no way edifying to her. Is it more than Pigford or is Pigford even bigger than thus far known?

That’s Perino and I think she’s Fox property.

Oh, good. Thank you. I’m relieved. Breitbart will be great.

I predicted several months ago that ABC will be the one broadcast network to swing to the right and go after what Fox News has created. This sounds like the start.

If ABC were smart they’d cut a deal with Fox and outsource their news operation to FNC.

Will once Perky Couric only be wearing a black dress or go full vail?

Pray for the elections

I seem to remember P.J. O’Rourke contributing to the election coverage on NBC one year...maybe 1992. Rush did something for them later on, but conservatives have been “strangers among us” whenever they have appeared on MSM broadcast news during my adult life. Can you imagine a conservative appearing on NPR every weekend like Daniel Schorr did for years giving commentary on current events? (I guess the firing of a recreant liberal on their staff indicates that is unlikely to happen)

I remember you said that and I thought the FNC outsourcing you mentioned then was interesting at the time. I think Fox would need to beef up its frontline reporting quite a bit though.

Gee, I hope you are right. Makes so much sense.

I would welcome a 30-minute “Fox Nightly News” broadcast nationwide on the Fox TV affiliates in early prime time.

It would offer the possibility each night of a different political perspective from ABCBSNBSPBS, to viewers who aren’t subscribed to cable or satellite.

Network news is dead and the TV networks themselves aren't that far behind. I think your suggestion makes lots of business sense.

I LOVE Dana Loesch. I follow (stalk) her on Facebook. Another hot Conservative woman.

I saw Dana Loesch being interviewed on Fox this morning. The description Fox put up below her name at the bottom of the screen was that she was a cofounder of the St. Louis Tea Party. She’s sharp and well spoken, and she handled herself well in the interview. She wants to hold Republican office holders’ feet to the fire after the election to make sure they uphold the Constitution and don’t compromise very much, if at all, with Obama.

I saw that interview. Hemmer seemed incredulous that Dana was stating that.

Wasn't Brit Hume originally with ABC? In fact, IIRC, he was the reporter whose questions (about what I don't remember) got under President Clinton's skin so bad that Clinton lost his cool and got really angry at Hume.

Glad to hear Breibart will be on ABC on election night, but sure hope they keep Diane Sawyer away from any of their coverage. Don't often watch ANC nightly news, mainly because of the way she seems to "gush" over everything Obama does. It's really annoying!
