#1 Time to boycott ABC advertising. I haven't listened to ABC in years anyway. Time to Recall O as well. Like Europe a power change is in order for many reasons too numerous to mention.

#2 Disgusting!

Note that ABC isn't even pretending to be fair and balanced anymore. All questions will be screened by ABC (and the Obama Administration) for content before being asked. No opposing questions or points will be made. When the GOP protested ABC answered basically: "Too bad".

You can bet that each and every 'question' will simply be a prop for Zero (and the TOTUS) to go on a 10-miniute speech about a subject making all sort of vague promises.

ABC will be Obama's 'Pravda' on steroids. And Charles Gibson probably won't even bother to wipe off his mouth afterwards.

#3 Just playing catch-up with MSNBC. Clinton had Monica, Obama has the mainstream media.

#4 Our constitution is written for free press as if the big government was going to crush free speech, a sound philosophy. I bet the authors of the constitution never dreamed the press would conspire control the government like this. This is more dangerous than a dictator!!

#5 Already they are being called ABC-DNC, and the irony is that they don't care. Indifferent to their lack of credibility, their only concern is that the FEC doesn't declare that they are in violation of election laws by providing free advertisement to one party and not the other.

Clearly, when the Republicans are back in power, one of their first acts should be busting up the major media cabal with antitrust law. If the market hasn't put them out of business already.

#6 I'd love to see the RNC buy time on another network to make their own "equal time". At the end, the trunks could remind their audience that Obama got a big contribution from ABC of free air time, but the Republicans pay their own way. Let's have the dualing infomercials.

#7 Time to stop calling it MSM, call it what it is: State-run Media.

More like TASS. The Noo Yawk Slimes is their "Pravda".

#11 I really don't need to read nirther nonsense here.

U.S. Republicans better get their shit together, find a real leader and a real agenda.

#12 We all knew the MSM was in bed with the communists. Now it is just the last chapter before the final act.

#13 Time to move to the next level of understanding: It is not "state-run media," it is a media-run state. Many on the right are fond of claiming that the mainstream media are the propaganda arm of the political left. It is really the other way 'round: the "left" as we know it today is the political arm of the Media-Industrial Complex.

#14 AC; I hadn't heard it put that way before but it rings true.
