State Run News: ABC Turns Programming Over To Government
What is it? Another example of DISinformation put out by the RNC and gleefully picked up by Drudge. From the Drudge Report imedded in your link:
ABCNEWS Senior Vice President Kerry Smith on Tuesday responded to the RNC complaint, saying it contained 'false premises':
"ABCNEWS prides itself on covering all sides of important issues and asking direct questions of all newsmakers -- of all political persuasions -- even when others have taken a more partisan approach and even in the face of criticism from extremes on both ends of the political spectrum. ABCNEWS is looking for the most thoughtful and diverse voices on this issue.
"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."
Ironically, if you think Charlie Gibson is a big fan of Obama, think again. Neither is ABC, second only to FOX.
Prison Planet, for crissake? ABC gets an exclusive and its a conspiracy! How, um, typical.
