ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE
Tue Jun 16 2009 08:45:10 ET
DRUDGE REPORT: ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA 2009®
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.

MORE

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,
Ken McKay
Republican National Committee
Chief of Staff

This is outrageous. Once upon a time, it was merely suspected that the mainstream media was biased towards the Left. Nowadays, the MSM is blatant and "in-your-face" about it. They don't even try to hide it anymore.

We are quickly heading towards government-controlled mass media, AKA PROPAGANDA.

Anyone remember a somewhat obscure Austrian many years ago who rose to power with smooth words and eloquent speeches, and accomplished the same thing with the media as he took over Germany? Oh yeah, and he also registered everyone's guns prior to confiscating them.

For those of you that believe the Bible, as I know many of you do, scripture teaches that many anti-chirsts would come before the day of "The anti-christ". Nero was one, Hitler another and may more. History does repeat itself.

Obama is not the anti christ. Get real.

We do need Free Universal Health Care for all american's. For Gods sake we are 34 in the world in healthcare. Our insurance company's stood under oath the other day and were asked the question. If your clients pay their premiums will you cover their claims and they said no. So if we commit the crime and get sick the health company's don't have to pay for our bills, they can do whatever they want and jack us around. You will pay more for your premiums now and you might be covered or you can pay less or no more on your taxes and not have to worry about it. Its not socialism its our right and we all deserve it. Even the conservatives in other country's are for it and wouldn't change it and call it one of their great national treasures. What our government needs to do is quit wasting all our tax dollars and start putting it to work for ourselves.

No where in the Constitution does it say you have a right to free health care, free education, or any other free S*it on your neighbors tax dollars... nor does it say anything in the Constitution applies to Illegal Aliens...

Socialism:
A Great Idea...
'Til You Run Out Of Other People's Money.



In the history of the world, UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE, SOCIALIZED MEDICINE; HAS NEVER WORKED...

There are no free lunches...

The fix for our broken health care system is not Universal Health Care...
Its tort reform, sealing our borders for starters...

+1. Free health care, free this, free that. These left wing Marxists just have no clue. There is no free lunch. What is free for some is paid for out of the pockets of the working middle class. The Usurper does not have a money tree in the back of the White house to pay all you free lunch guys whims and wishes. Hello! The socialist/Marxists in this country should spend less time meditating on the communist manifesto and more time on the Constitution.

I have an aortic aneurism that requires surgical attention in the future. It will run well over $100,000 to fix...Will YOU please pay for it? How about my kids college??? I did'nt think so! Obama Care is a vast failure waiting to happen. We have the best healthcare system in the world. don't screw with what ain't broke.

Obama has doubled the Ntl Debt since his being placed in office. He is running this country into the ground financially.

Put down the cool-aid and drink from the firehose of truth!

I don't know what insurance companies are talked about here but I do know that mine pays my doctor and hospital bills very quickly. Explain how you can pay less or no more on taxes when that's what is going to pay for this universal health care for all Americans. All these programs being thought up are going to be paid by the tax payers dollar and taxes aren't going to be raised? And guess what, it will be the working class that will pay most of those taxes. That's why education is getting hit. It's one of the first to take a hit when so called cuts are ordered. It's a law that no one can be turned away at an emergency room when they seek care. Yes the system is broken but universal health care is not the way. Why do you think that many who can afford it come to the U.S. for their surgery? It's because we have some of the best doctors in the world. A universal health care plan will just make us like everyone else.

The Usurper has more then doubled the debt...

its unprecedented...

In his first 30 days in office he spent more money then all the previous administrations did in their entirety combined, in the entire history of the country inflation adjusted...

Post Office - Not socialism... no taxpayer money goes to the operation of the U.S. Postal Service, it is entirety funded by postage...

Medicare - Socialism... Thanks to LBJ another one of the Usurper Obama's Socialist Government Can Solve All Our Problems Hero's...

Social Security - Socialism... Thanks to FDR another one of the Usurper Obama's Socialist Government Can Solve All Our Problems Hero's...

I was raised with the belief that if you fail to plan you plan to fail...
Moreover, nobody owes you a living, education, health care or anything else...

As a U.S. Citizen you are born with the freedom to succeed or fail...

Russia for example is a country full of individuals with multiple government funded Phd's and free health care and other Socialist/Communist Entitlements, that are making 70 dollars a month...

Individuals From All these Countries with Universal Health Care (AKA: Socialized Medicine) are paying for Health Care in the United States...

Therefore, I have no predetermined nanny state dependencies on Medicare, Social Security or any other Socialist Entitlement Programs that we can not afford...

I fund my own health care, that of my immediate families, paid for all my kids college x6, plus one grandchild and earned my pension(s) from nearly 3 decades in the USMC, and a civilian career...

WAKE UP, you sound like all the other ignorant kool-aid drinking fools out there. Do you have any idea what socialized medicine will lead to? The govt will be able to control every F**king aspect of your life. You cant eat red meat because that will raise health care costs. You cant drink because that will raise health care costs, You cant smoke...You cant eat and drive because you will get into an accident and raise health care costs...you cant go outside without sun screen on...you cant sit on your couch for more than 2 hours a day because inactivity is bad for you and will raise health care costs. you cant drive your f**king truck because it puts out too much carbon dioxide which others will breathe in and hurt their health and raise health care costs...EVERY DAMN THING WE DO EVERY DAMN DAY WILL BE REGULATED YOU MORON!!!!!!!! WAKE THE F*CK UP. not to mention you wont be able to choose your doctors or the procedures that will work for you. If this goes through WE ARE ALL F*CKED!!!!!!!!

Here's a tip we can take from Mexico's Health Care System...

No Cash, No Health Care...

You can bleed to death at the emergency room door, if you do not have cash in hand for services...

Write your Senators and Representative and demand that they follow the Constitution as it was written and intended by our founding fathers...
And say no to Universal Health Care (AKA: Socialized Medicine)...

The fact is it is broke. What about all the people who can't buy health insurance because they are not healthy enough. But they don't qualify for medicade. Ask your health insurance company if they care. They don't thats why it is broke and why we got to have a plan for all.

As far as Obama goes on the national debt. lets argue about that in 7 years. All we have now is how much of a debt Bush left us.

First of all thank you for a nice reply and for not getting all bent about this. I enjoy talking rationally about things. SOme of the other people should take your resonse as an example. Anyways,

For one you cut the wasteful spending to stuff thats so not important. And that goes for both sides dem & rep. Ask your insurance company if they would cover you if you had a heart attack or cancer. Unless you have group insurance the answer is no. Thats why we got to have something. THis is america ya'll we pick up our soldier's in the battlefield even if it means risking our life. We got to help the unisured/uninsurable.

We have some of the best drs in the world because we have the best opportunity in education and are the most technologicallly advanced. Not because they want to pay more. We got to reach out to the uninsured and these small business owners who pay out the wazoooo for health insurance. You cann't have a health system that wants to profit. That doesn't make since to me.

You forgot one.

Public School Systems= socialism= your kids and mine go/went there and thats ok
wrong again!

Public School System is not socialism...

Jimmy Carter's U.S. Department of Education = Socialism...

The Usurper's Government Mandated Tax Funded College Education for everybody including illegal aliens is Socialism...

Russia is a country with people with multiple Ph'd's and free health care making 70 dollars a month...

Socialism... Sounds like a good idea till you run out of other peoples money...
