ABC on Tuesday dropped any pretense of objectivity and defended the President over his "you didn't build that" attack on business. In an online article, ABCNews.com writers Amy Walter, Elizabeth Hartfield and Chris Good dropped this spin into a supposedly straight news report: "Republicans have seized on the line 'you didn't build that' to falsely claim that Obama was speaking directly to business owners about their businesses."

The ABC writers whined that the Mitt Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee have "been relentless in pushing" the attack." Walter, Hartfield and Good then cheered, "The Obama campaign, it seems, is not going to take it anymore."
