Looks like ABC wants to become the Obama Media Whore of Choice

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
Which problem, being pointed out, has caused ABC to act all offended and stuff:
"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."
Umm, Mr. Smith? Part of the problem is that 'ABCNEWS alone will select' crap; with you fairly blatantly sucking up to the administration, it's your selecting who and what gets said and asked that's a big part of the damn problem. And getting snotty and offended won't change that.

Anybody know how to jam a satelite transmission for a night or so? I think it's time for a little-people run media censoring or maybe over-laying a signal that is not un-American in content to broadcast in place of this commie agenda. Write your letters about this now!!!!!!!!!

I don't think that you will have to jam anything. I have a feeling that the ratings for that program will be fairly close to zero. Good old B.O. is on the television pretty close to 24/7 and I think that people are getting bored seeing his face on the tube so much. Over saturation. Hope that there is a good infomercial on at that time and that it whips his ass in ratings.
