CBS, NBC and ABC To Air Obama Press Conference, As Fox Declines
TV By The Numbers ^ | July 20, 2009 | by Bill Gorman

Posted on 07/22/2009 1:45:12 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

For some background here are the aggregate average viewership numbers from the president’s last 3 prime-time news conferences:

Feb: 9: 49.5 million

March 24: 40.4 million

April 29: 28.8 million

This press conference, being in mid-summer, is likely to cost the broadcasters a lot less than the $21.5 million ad revenue estimated for the April one.

That cartoon looks about right. It’s only missing about 100 American flags in the background.

Skip it.
Tune into Plains tonight, July 22 at 8:30 PM CST. Ken Dunbar will have as his guest, renouned Canada Free Press writer, J B Williams. Mr. Williams is the author of the article, ‘Are YOU afraid of Obama?’.
He will discuss the bc issue and predictions of ‘civil war’.

http://www.plainsradio.com/radio.html

From Williams’ article in Canadian Free Press:

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/12999
(snip)
Every member of the Supreme Court, every member of congress, every member of the Joint Chiefs, most members of the DOD, CIA, FBI, Secret Service and state run media, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, NPR, MSNBC, Fox and print news, knows that Barack Hussein Obama does NOT meet Article II – Section I constitutional requirements for the office he holds. By his own biography, there is NO way he can pass the test. The hard evidence is so far beyond overwhelming, it is ridiculous.
(snip)
But not ONE member of America’s most powerful people will dare confront Obama and his anti-American cabal on the subject. The Constitution does NOT stand.
(snip)
If Americans won’t let leftists have their country, the left will burn it and leave it in ruins. There is no peaceful way out of the corner leftists have placed Americans in… Congress, the courts, even the military brass and law enforcement, will do nothing to save this country. The state run media complex is running interference. The American people are on their own here…
(snip)
Half of the people you expect to stop this insanity are quiet co-conspirators in the silent coup. The other half is paralyzed by fear, motivated only by political self-preservation.
(Snip)
Americans keep asking what they can do because they see that none of their leaders are doing anything to stop the demise of their beloved country. It’s the right question, because those leaders are NOT going to stop this thing.
(Snip)
Who will save Freedom?
A brave few… This is how it was in the beginning, how it has always been and how it will be.
(Snip)
Orly Taitz, Phil Berg and Gary Kreep, all of whom have made defending the Constitution and the American way of life a personal ambition, in the absence of any constitutional leadership.
(Snip)
A precious few, but they exist… and the walls are indeed closing in on Obama and his evil cabal. If the American people fail to get behind these brave few who are seeking peaceful redress, all peaceful options will evaporate as if they never existed. We will return to a pre-1776 America overnight

how many times did Bush request TV coverage? I bet the networks would not have granted Bush this much free air time

Be very interested in the following: are questions going to be submitted in advance? Will “reporters” know beforehand if they are going to be called on? Will “reporters” ask more “smooch his butt” questions?

Do we even have much of an independent press anymore? Is the Obama campaign/administration paying these people off?

It’s hard to tell.

I think ABC already has that distinction.

Why on earth would anyone want to waste time listening to this horse's ass on TV?

More “presidential” rhetoric from a teleprompter which can be condensed, substantively, into a few sentences or paragraphs.

His political keepers probably told him to go on the air to promote his medical bill, and that every time a President appears on Network News, his ratings go up.

Hopefully the American people will be growing wise to this shyster and his dramatic Marxist nonsense.

TV Guide reported in their poll that 75% of Americans will watch something else (like MASH reruns).

Actually, he is due to come unglued against the American people, but if he does, I’ll see the video on Hannity.

I am sure he has that in the works - it might be after he and his loony left bankrupt America.

Like I said, what will anyone learn? That he’s a petulant child who needs to get his way? Did we not already know that?

It’s not a press conference ... it’s an infomercial.

QUESTION:
Will the networks give time for Hussein's critics to rebutt his lies? Or is this time merely to be used as a Call To Worship the Messi-UH?

CBS, NBC and ABC say they will televise the press conference from president Obama Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET. Fox will not be airing the conference and will be sticking to its previously scheduled episode of So You Think You Can Dance. That is the same plan the networks had for President Obama’s last primetime presser in April. Fox’s cable news outlets, Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network, will air the press conference in its entirety.

Slightly different text from the ‘shocking headline’ that FOX declines!!! When will these idiots stop this crap? Never I suppose. They headline an article bashing Fox while explaining that Fox is indeed covering Bammy.

Geez...what a bunch of Putzes.

I can’t watch FOX (the entertainment channel) since they had Nazis wearing McCain/Palin pins on Family Guy.
