That’s right up there with NBC faking truck explosions and CBS forging anti-Bush documents.

Good to see ABC keeping up...

What these idiots don’t realize is that NO ONE who is looking for objective information is going to go to an ABC website. That would be as bad as going to Satan for advice on how to live the Christian life. So they can remove anything they want, who cares?

Fox needs to cover this liberal media propaganda ploy and offer their website for people wanting to read the unedited transcript of the full debate.

ABCCBSNBCPBSCNNMSNBC, etc. would all cover this if Fox News altered a transcript to aid the GOP.

Yeah we do. We have Free Republic, talk radio, conservative internet bloggers.

We really don't need the "press" anymore. That is old news. What we have is much, much better.

Breitbart should have the link (to the transcript) posted. I can’t find it anyway.

Point taken. But the items you mentioned preach to the choir. There are many others that form opinions from the Alphabet channels or some other entertainment program.

It is INTACT. Opening statement there too.

The Wayback machine (http://archive.org/) doesn’t have anything for that URL. Apparently, they don’t collect it, probably because ABC prohibits it.

What you are defining is a need to make some impact on the mainstream genre. They are best ignored. Preaching to the choir ain't a bad thing. When you post something here you have no idea how far what you have written will travel. Because we have ignored the lamestreamers and now prefer FOX, FOX's numbers are through the roof comparatively speaking. When you pass nuggets of info via email to your friends, you have no idea how far that will go.

When I first came to FR I tried to wrap my brain around the effect of posting something. Where does it go? Well, during the impeachment I was doing research at a university library and found this little obscure piece of information and decided to add it here on this site. The very next day I was listening to a radio talk show and I heard the host mention the obscure info I posted here. And that has happened more than once.

We must not be concerned when we don't see our thoughts parroted by the lamestreamers. We don't need to be verified by them. The people who need to understand will get it.

We are engaged in is a test of faith. Ronald Reagan said that we get a lot more done when we are not concerned as to who gets the credit.

Just keep the ball rolling.

What do you expect from a network that recently played the race card and hid George Zimmerman’s wounds?

” Point taken. But the items you mentioned preach to the choir. There are many others that form opinions from the Alphabet channels or some other entertainment program. “

You are both correct. The fact is that if the MSM reported the truth about Obama (proven truth, not speculation)Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30’s.

Slyfox, Free Republic is the ONLY place that I can get all the truth. Too bad most of America doesn’t read FR.

I was watching the live YouTube/ABC stream.

Bamma holes cut Mitt's closing remarks off. Not partially, entirely.

Just how petty they are, do they think no one notices?

Let’s not forget that ABC faked some film footage to fill out their news reports about 20 years ago.

There’s a simple solution to the deception and malfeasance of the DBM (Disingenuous, Biased Media) - STOP WATCHING!! If we don’t watch them and if we don’t subscribe to their print “journals”, advertisers get to reduce what they pay and those arrogant, liberal talking nd writing heads earn less money, lose their nice offices and - eventually - their overpaid jobs!

See how simple that is?

Diane, you're NOT of us no matter how home-spun you try to be. You are a fraud.
