ABC turns news over to Obama for a day SFOG

"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."

ABC will run its news shows from the White House, and refuse (so far) to allow any representative of the Republican Party or anyone opposed to UHC to participate in any of the programs. Drudge has a story up along with a letter written on behalf of the people who will be silenced.

This is misuse of public airwaves, so should they be shut down or just make the DNC pay for the full day of infomercial time?

    And a statement from ABC that they'll "control who gets to ask questions" and totally sidesteps the whole - broadcasting from the white house with no republicans in sight - part of the issue
