"ABC News has more than earned the title of the All Barack Channel, they have recklessly fought to achieve it," Media Research Center President Brent Bozell stated in a press release today.
The network had promised to deliver a health care presentation that would "not be ‘slanted' in any way - much less a ‘day-long infomercial' or ‘in-kind free advertising'," but not a single expert was offered to counter President Obama's plan to nationalize the nation's health care industry.
Instead, ABC News "balanced" itself this morning by having Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on today's "Good Morning America" to discuss his health care ideas - for a 3 minute 5 second segment. Ryan got less than 2 minutes (1 minute, 47 seconds) to respond to questions. Obama received 25 times that much time last night.
"After being condemned by conservatives for organizing a Presidential infomercial, they publicly pledged a fair discussion. But their coverage is proof that they were disingenuous and made a mockery out of the very notion of journalism," the NewsBusters publisher added. "The All Barack Channel is nothing but a megaphone for President Obama and has committed itself to the success of his radical, left-wing agenda."

The MRC yesterday launched a new Web site that exposes what the liberal news media are not telling the American public about President Obama's health care plan. All the details are available at http://www.obamacaretruth.org/.
