Dr. Goebbels would be so proud…

We have entered the Twilight Zone, folks. Can any liberal deny bias any longer? From DrudgeReport:

ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE

Tue Jun 16 2009 08:45:10 ET

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.

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

A little side note. From now on I (and whomever else writes on this blog) will stop using the term “mainstream media.” They are far from mainstream, and have been for decades. I’m going to use Rush Limbaugh’s term, which is pithy and perfect in describing them:

The State-Run Media.

  1. Obama did promise change, didn’t he? That few of those that voted for him and “change” had no idea what change he was talking about (other than it was change we could believe in — as opposed to change we can’t believe in?) is not what scares me the most. What scares me is those who support this radical agenda because to them the ends justify the means.

  2. Can’t see why or how this could possibly be “… a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!” You saw it coming; wasn’t a matter of IF but a matter of WHEN.

    And why shouldn’t they just come out of the closet? They’ve been pushing this menace until they got him elected; this is no surprise. Except that rather than the govt taking over the controls and satellite links (a la Chavez), it’s the giddy media that gives up all controls, like a carte blanche prostitute.

    Hey, SRM is cool, but the other one Rush uses it just as good ~ the Drive-By Media; methinks to use that one.

  3. Rather than appear on this program with Obama which will be self defeating and dignify this left socialist plan, I think ABC should be pressured into donating one hour of free prime time to all those who want to push for private medical care.
    The chances of that happening are slim and none.

  4. I think State-Run Media says it best. The words evoke the seriousness of the situation. The liberal-left media in this country has acquired the almost totalitarian control of thought that we see in places like Cuba, North Korea, China, and Vietnam. The almost total control of the information environment is an extremely powerful tool to manipulate a wholly ignorant, ill-informed, and self-absorbed populace. A populace with a simpleton’s view of how societies function and who are always looking for the latest ‘freebie’ from their government.

    This is scary stuff, with devastating consequences, so lets give it the name that labels it as such. I still can’t get over what we did to ourselves in November, un-friggin-believable…

  5. So ABC is knuckling under. Are the other networks? Is Fox? I’m wondering if this is just one “state run station.” Ha.

    On a more serious note, I’m a little hesitant to compare the U.S. to Nazi Germany right now like you think it is, George.

  6. carambola,

    It does not take a very smart person to realize the enormous conspiracy taking place right in front of our eyes between the MSM, the lefties idiots, George Soros and Co. and our current President to turn this country away from its traditional self.

    Unfortunately, way too many Americans are running on stupidity mode now a days and their brains don’t seen to reason properly.

    I only wonder when their brains will return to normal function with the ability to grasp what’s going on behind the scenes.

    George made a very valid point in his post because
    even though America is not Nazi Germany, the slick methods used by the liberals (in complicity with the MSM) to change the fabric of our country will make Dr. Goebbels extremely proud from his current residence in hell.

    What is so unique in this case is that these methods are being implemented in such a subtle, unique way that the American people are failing to realize the intentions behind them.

  7. Mike Rosen of Denver’s KOA radio uses the more accurate phrase, dominant liberal media. I agree with his logic that MSM implies that their views are mainstream, rather than Leftist.

    Gotta love State-Run Media, though.

  8. “I agree with his logic that MSM implies that their views are mainstream, rather than Leftist.”

    brotio,

    You hit the nail right on by posting this comment.

    Unfortunately way too many Americans are not realizing this important fact. The fact that today the MSM is championing their lefties views to the American people as if they were traditional American mainstream values.

    Unfortunately the people have become so blind, naive, dumb and incredibly stupid to follow the MSM line.

  9. I see it is worse than I thought. Not only won’t ABC allow any amount of free time to our side to rebut, they refused to allow one minute of requested PAID time even before it was announced that they were giving one hour free to the president.
