ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE

Tue Jun 16 2009 08:45:10 ET

On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care -- a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!

Highlights on the agenda:

ABCNEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House.

The network plans a primetime special -- 'Prescription for America' -- originating from the East Room, exclude opposing voices on the debate. (snip)

"exclude opposing voices on the debate."

That's the money line, right there.

The response from ABC, in part: "ABCNEWS alone will select those who will be in the audience asking questions of the president. Like any programs we broadcast, ABC News will have complete editorial control. To suggest otherwise is quite unfair to both our journalists and our audience."

Well, it's not like they're throwing the finger to half of America in secret or anything. It's right there in front of ya.

Who even watches ABC?I guess that the Obama white house didn't use MSNBC because they are in the toilet so they needed a network that has at least five viewers..so they chose ABC..People there isn't anything on TV that night anyway so go out and rent a movie..

ABC can’t possibly claim that running an Obama dog-and-pony show is objective reporting.

If they ever get back to objective reporting - and that will probably never happen - I might consider watching one of ABC’s programs.

This needs to be used to advantage against 0bama and his minions. They are clearly out there in exposing how they clearly are not into providing unbiased news, but they are openly pushing propaganda for their Precious and the Demonrat party. The media is an issue and needs to be confronted and given no respect or so much as an appearance of legitimacy. Any conservative or Republican appearing on their programs needs to always bring it up.

Judging by ABC-BS, NBC-BS (and its bastard children PMSNBC-BS and CNBC-BS) and CBS-BS, I think he already has!

So what has changed? Just because they’ve been broadcasting out of the satellite at CBS studios, it doesn’t mean they haven’t been in the Left’s pocket for decades. So now they’re doing it from the White House DNC central. At least they’re up front about it now.

Hey, why hide it anymore? Everyone already knows... it doesn’t matter.

Control the media, control the people. Something needs to be done. This is an outrage! Right now, Imanutjob in Iran, is doing pretty much the same thing. We need to get this out.

Drudge has had an interesting page lately.

My favorite is Michelle out in her fashion icon shorts walking BO, the dog, not the jackass namesake.

The picture said it all, coupled with the Michelle has become a fashion icon headline.

LOL funny

The MSM is such Obama sycophants that if he were peeing on them, they would say it was raining.

This place has fallen so fast so far it is now officially beyond repair IMO.
Peter Zengar must be rolling over in his grave.

When there is no descent, there is no need for a first amendment for the press IMO. I don't need to hear from the big jerk 24/7...I already sounded the warning about him long ago.

I rather *like* the idea of having our President holding such a town meeting like this on ABC News.

All I ask is that half the audience and half the questions of our President are Freepers!

Since ABC News will never agree to this, this program will turn out wretched. But one can still hope. Jesus advised us to do so.

Hi, ABC News people! We know you’re surfing here! How about getting people like Kristinn, and enough of us here to make up half the audience! We’ll make your little “town hall meeting” with Charlie Gibson exciting television!
