Quote Of The Week

"The ABC Television Network has a long-standing policy that we do not sell time for advertising that presents a partisan position on a controversial public issue,"..."Just to be clear, this is a policy for the entire network, not just ABC News."

ABC spokeswoman Susan Sewell said in a written statement.

"We have not rejected the ad,"..."We have communicated with the media agency about some factual claims that require additional substantiation. As always, we are happy to reconsider the ad once these issues are addressed."

NBC spokeswoman Liz Fischer told


This was in response to ABC and NBC refusing to air a commercial by League of American Voters that is critical of the Obama Administration's health care reform.

Just a reminder, ABC is the network that ran the all day Obama health care infomercial on June 24th (excluding any groups with contrary views) and NBC is the network that sells 'all Obama, all the time' merchandise on it's site.

My question is, why are these networks still on the air. If your watching their news programs at all, stop. Let's get them off the air.

I can't watch them, they interfere with Sean, Greta, Bill and Glenn.
It is the agenda driven Fox News all the way for me.

It'll be a great day when some of these leftist networks are simply kicked off the public purse.

Gramma, I haven't watched network news in years

MK, I think we are headed that way

Because they are so insulated from the real world and ordinary people that they have no idea how far off base they are.
