Skip to comments.ABC News Is a Piece of Crap (Hit piece on Reagan to end its broadcast)
Posted on 06/05/2004 4:07:28 PM PDT by Abbeville Conservative
Just channel surfing when I caught the end of ABC news and their tribute to Reagan. Here are the highlights.
He fired air traffic controlers
He promised to keep Marines in Lebanon for two more weeks then 13 months later their barracks were bombed.
He bombed Kadafi and ended up killing and injuring his children.
I can't remember what other crap they threw out but all of it was negative.
The invastion of Grenada and military personell being killed.
Nothing about the booming economy under Reagan, the fall of communism under Reagan, the restoring of respect to America. Not a single mention of any of his achievements, just more left wing bull. Now I know why I gave up watching these stations years ago. It was disgusting.
Was any of it surprising?
ABC is still on here in Orlando...NBC went to Arena football after 20 mins after the story broke...CBS broke off for golf after 90 mins.
ABC News on the radio had this to say:
During Reagans presidency, the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. The amount of homeless increased.
And not much more positive.
Do you expect anything else from ABC?
I'm surprised they didn't play fesive music and give out candy like arabs do.
Wow I was listening to NPR at work and they were saying pretty good things about President Reagan.
That IS a plus.
They just can't help themselves. One hopes that in spewing their vitriol they drive the Reagan Democrats back into the Republican column.
I saw that. It was disgusting. It even had sinister-sounding music behind it.
Dont get too upset. The coverage has been 95% positive today.
NPR?? were you forced to??? :)
Easy for the alphabet networks to sling mud -- anything else will wipe out their agenda.
When I first heard I had turned on ABC because it is one of our local channels on satellite. There was barbara walters talking about how Reagan was not close to his children. ZOT! Off to Fox for reality.
They are disgusting. I can hardly wait to hear what vile filth will come out of Ted Kennedy and his ilk.
LOL yeah what was I thinking? :
Isn't that what ABC stands for, All Bull Crap?
Ronald Reagan wanted all Americans to be rich. The democrats want all Americans to be poor.
Yep. Many liberals are.
You just got the memo?
Let them have their little puke party, it just makes them look small.
Understand that leftists can't stand the fact that despite their kicking and stomping, Reagan is going down as one of the greatest presidents in the history of the United States of America.
And there's nothing the queers, commies, air traffic controllers, socialists can do about it. Great is great.
Turn on C-Span. Reagan is giving his last apprearance/speech from 2/3/94.
I agree with you. I have been pleasantly surprised at the endearing commentary by Elizabeth Vargas, Sam Donaldson, Barbara Walters, even George Stephanopouls. I was stunned, because that is the last network I would watch, but NBC and CBS had signed off for other programming. ABC has been showing alot of the love affair of Nancy and Ron. It was so unexpected.
At least it gave NPR something to cover other than the Abu Grab (ALGORE pronunciation) prison scandal.
I hear NPR because my local college rock station runs it during morning hours. That was all they talked about for three straight weeks.
YO! That you girl?? Haven't seen ya in a loooonng time? How goes it? (other than the bad news about my favorite president)
What can we expect, remember John-John who's only claim to fame was JFK (The real ones) son. Decided to fly a small plane when he was not qualified to. Killing himself and his wife. The 24 hours news that covered that should be enough to tell you how the media works.
President Ronald Reagan ended the cold war, gave us a booming economy and restored the malise that Jimmy Carter had placed on the nation. God Bless him.
They redeemed themselves a bit today. They played some of his famous speeches. It was great to listen to NPR :sputter:
A snippet I saw on ABC was interesting. They were talking about when Reagan was shot and so they show a clip of Clinton signing the Brady Bill with Brady by his side. Strange tangent but the left can use even Reagan to promote a liberal cause.
they will slam the man and pee on his grave, much as I will do when the moral coward klintoon kicks the bucket.
Just forget ABC. There is no truth in anything they say.
When one million people file past Reagan's coffin in the Capital rotunda,
that will speak louder than anything that ABCNBCCBSCNN etc. can say.
Be There! --- I will.
Contact # for ABC is 1-818-460-7477
"I'm surprised they didn't play fesive music and give out candy like arabs do."
...and shots of Helen Thomas uulating.
Maybe it's a good time to get some momentum up for putting him on the dime.....
Some idiot just asked Bush The First in a press conference if Reagan was starting to suffer Alzheimer's while still in office. I wish it were permitted for the guy at the podium to lob water balloons when he gets one of these.
How soon they forget the good.
he bravely defended us from Nicaragua
named the names, and kept communism at bay.
may he rest in peace
I intend to call Dish Network in a few minutes and cancel my subscription to ABC TV if they allow it ... network TV in general. Heck, if they say I have to cancel all the locals to do so - I will. But it ends with ABC TV for me today. I'll do my best to never watch that network again.
>>During Reagans presidency, the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. The amount of homeless increased.<<
I hate this revisionist history. For the record, I was there, I was an adult and I suffered through the horrendous Carter years, and I can say Carter was a total failure!
Gasoline lines, stories of doom and gloom, people losing their homes BECAUSE OF HORRENDOUSLY HIGH INTEREST RATES, Americans held hostage and Carter wringing his hands....
I could go on and on! Ronald Reagan brought a weary and disheartened nation back to pride and glory. For that, we will always honor him and be in his debt.
May God bless Ronald Reagan and may President Reagan find peace and comfort in the Lord's arms tonight. Heaven will be better for having him there.
rich got richer and the poor got poorer...
People that say and believe that are communists. Think about it.. Funny how it's all called an economic boom, during Clinton's term, just 6 short years later. Oh yeah... the 80's were the decade of greed...
I just can't stand these people...
He fired the air controllers because they broke the law and defied the government contract.
Did they bother to interview any of the rescued people in Granada? Of course not.
ABC is merely trying to rewrite history to help John F'n Kerry. Unfortunately for Kerry, President Reagan's tributes right up to the election in November will smother him. This will be the exact opposite of the Wellstone Funeral Celebration Party.
Don't be too hard. The first part of it was great. The end wasn't great, but overall it was actually pretty good. I was surprised. Besides, ABC is the only one on without commercials. They aren't perfect, but they are doing pretty good overall. The other stations are crap! They were on 24/7 for several days, without commericals, for John John -- all of them.
I am the first to admonish ABC, but as I said, they were the only ones on about Reagan. I did watch, and was so surprised. I am not defending them because 98% of the time, they are disgusting, so I was very surprised with the glowing accounts of Reagan they had, until Peter Jennings came along.
Saw that. I wish I could have been there to swat the guy a good shot. Unbelievable.
Bahbwah Wah-Wah should read the Michael Reagan statement today about his father's passing. Then let her say they weren't close. It brought tears to my eyes -- it showed what kind of father Ronald Reagan really was, for a son to
give such a statement.
Exactly. Our side really needs to get 'with it' and expect these childish antics from the opposition.
