ABC News Is a Piece of Crap (Hit piece on Reagan to end its broadcast)
ABC | Self

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.

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.

How nice.

ABC News on the radio had this to say:

“During Reagan’s 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.

He fired air traffic controlers.

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.

CBS will probably try to resurrect their Reagan movie from Showtime.

But, what can you expect from the lib media. They hate heroes. They have to try to bring them down.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Did you expect anything less from the effect snubs of the liberal media, they hated the RR with more of a passion than than they hate GWB.

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.

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.

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 Reagan’s 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...

ABC should check some facts. The missles that struck Khaddafi were his own. They were launched and came back down on the Libyans. "Darn those coordinate settings when they get changed!"

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.

Commies don't like staunch Anti-Commies

Those who define the 'good life' as being the most debauched
do not like straight shooting moral upright men..

Those who revel in twisting truth despise those who will only tell the truth

Woe unto those who call good..evil and evil...good.....

Ronald Reagan was America's greatest president..imo

He is and will be sorely missed

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.

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.

I watched ABC too and I thought they did a good job. CBS and NBC and FOX cut to regular programing. ABC was the only one to stay on the air. I must say I'm surprised at the favorable coverage on CNN. They were just musing about what Reagan would think about the deterioration of the political discourse over the past 10 years or so.
