    Default Are You Kidding Me?

    This administration is over the top. The media controls the tempo of the country and the tide of public opinion. I don't find this type of infomercial stuff fair. I don't want nationalized health care.. period. Now it has to be forced down my throat because the democratic sheep want it there? Unbelievable.

    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.

    Late Monday night, Republican National Committee Chief of Staff Ken McKay fired off a complaint to the head of ABCNEWS:

    Dear Mr. Westin:

    As the national debate on health care reform intensifies, I am deeply concerned and disappointed with ABC's astonishing decision to exclude opposing voices on this critical issue on June 24, 2009. Next Wednesday, ABC News will air a primetime health care reform “town hall” at the White House with President Barack Obama. In addition, according to an ABC News report, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, WORLD NEWS, NIGHTLINE and ABC’s web news “will all feature special programming on the president’s health care agenda.” This does not include the promotion, over the next 9 days, the president’s health care agenda will receive on ABC News programming.

    Today, the Republican National Committee requested an opportunity to add our Party's views to those of the President's to ensure that all sides of the health care reform debate are presented. Our request was rejected. I believe that the President should have the ability to speak directly to the America people. However, I find it outrageous that ABC would prohibit our Party's opposing thoughts and ideas from this national debate, which affects millions of ABC viewers.

    In the absence of opposition, I am concerned this event will become a glorified infomercial to promote the Democrat agenda. If that is the case, this primetime infomercial should be paid for out of the DNC coffers. President Obama does not hold a monopoly on health care reform ideas or on free airtime. The President has stated time and time again that he wants a bipartisan debate. Therefore, the Republican Party should be included in this primetime event, or the DNC should pay for your airtime.

    Respectfully,

    Also from the article:

    "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."

    Government controlled media is not good. Not good at all.

    Pretty soon they will control all forms of media, I can't believe how backwards we are becoming.

    ABC = Another Bureaucratic Cluster

    NBC = No Barak Complaints

    CBS = Can't Believe S*&%

    CNN = Communist Network News

    PBS = Propoganda Broadcast Station

    Watching the History channel lately and now they are touting a coming ice age. Run those cars and light those fires. Burn more dinosaurs I don't want to freeze.

    Isn't this what the USSR did? I heard that it was going to be easy to get cable TV in every home in Russia after the fall because the KGB already had everything wired.

    How many times are conservatives (or independents) looked at as loonies because they dared long for a country that went back to the way it began with Federal powers limited and states ruling supreme?

    I've been told that believing in the possibility of returning to that government makes me "idealist", "living in a dream world", "behind the times", etc. It was suggested that change that significant will never happen in our lifetimes.

    Hopefully now the republican base will see that radical change IS possible.

    I just hope it's not too late. A lot of damage can be done in four years.

    We tried to warn everyone about this.

    Mid Term Elections is where we can stop the madness. Get conservatives in there. I don't care what party they belong to as long as they start to limit spending and size of the gov't.

    What the heck we survived Jimmy Carter didn't we?

    I don't like being an alarmist..in fact I don't consider myself one. But even I see some writing that reeks of historic regimes that did not have a happy ending. As a small business owner, the fears magnify a bit. I feel like I am the enemy to the current administration. I'm sure Barry would smile and pat my shoulder and tell me otherwise.

    I'm not particularly partisan, I'm just saying not to get too wadded up.

    There isn't much new under the sun:

    Both sides should probably calm their breathlessness, and get on with government.

    Scott, I don't think the problem is with the specials they ran with the reporters following the two presidents around. That didn't bother me.

    What bothers me is following him around touting the universal health care agenda and refusing to air paid ads with opposing views during the show.
