    ABC News Teams Up With Obama White House to Present President's Health Care Plan

    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.

    Nah... no media bias.. not at all. Could you imagine if Foxnews had done this with Bush and say... Iraq?

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Who the hell in ABC thought this would be a good idea?

    You would prefer a debate over health care broadcast from the Blue Room? Somehow I don't think ABC has the clout to arrange that.

    It sounds to me like they're interviewing Obama about healthcare. What am I missing?

    Drudge, are you kidding me? Drudge is not breaking news!!!

    Get this off of here.

    This is a friggin' OP Ed piece.

    1. All threads started in the *Breaking News* (*BN*) forum must adhere to the Rules and Guidelines as stipulated below. Be advised that Infraction Points may be awarded for failure to adhere to these Rules and Guidelines.

    2. Independent commentary and OpEd pieces are not allowed in *BN*.

    3. Each *BN* Opening Post (OP) must have a citation link to a news story.

    4. The title of every *BN* thread must be identical to the title of the cited news story headline. This is important as it helps to avoid multiple topics about an issue while starting discussions out on a more neutral basis.

    5. Cited *BN* news sources must exhibit the following two identifiers: news-agency and story-dateline. A news-agency tag verifies that a published article is bona-fide news, and a story-dateline verifies that the story was published within the past 48 hours per Point 7 below.
