On 24 June 2009, ABC will devote an entire hour to presenting the Obama administrations plans for nationalized healthcare. Also, Charlie Gibson, ABC World News Tonight anchor will broadcast from the White House blue room. There will be no conservative rebuttal, though not for a lack of Republicans making their feelings known to ABC news. In response to the RNC's request for equal time to state their case, ABC News Senior Vice President Kerry Smith had this to say; "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." I call Bullshit on the whole sordid mess. I know journalistic integrity flew out the press plane's door when BO got serious last year. I never thought that the tank was quite this deep.
