Surrounding their partisanship with the backdrop of National Constitution Hall in Philadelphia last evening, ABC's Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopolos gave us one more demonstration of how totally corrupt and unredeemable the Knee Pad main media in America has become.
For the first 52 minutes of a 90 minute event, advertised as a Democratic debate, the pompous ass, Gibson and the Tim Russert wannabe, Stephanopolos threw every Republican trash talking point at Obama that the Sean Hannitys of our nation could scrape from the bottom of their TurdBlssom barrels.
A few early critiques.....
It was another step downward for network news -- in particular ABC News, which hosted the debate from Philadelphia and whose usually dependable anchors, Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos, turned in shoddy, despicable performances.
....looked like an overly ambitious intern helping out at a subcommittee hearing, digging through notes for something smart-alecky and slimy. He came up with such tired tripe as a charge that Obama once associated with a nutty bomb-throwing anarchist. That was "40 years ago, when I was 8 years old," Obama said with exasperation.
To this observer, ABC's coverage seemed slanted against Obama. Link
Editor & Publisher......
In perhaps the most embarrassing performance by the media in a major presidential debate in years, ABC News hosts Charles Gibson and George Stephanopolous focused mainly on trivial issues as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama faced off in Philadelphia.
And why is this no surprise....
Yet David Brooks' review at The New York Times concluded: "I thought the questions were excellent." He gave ABC an "A." Link
An "A", I suppose, for assholery.
I'll have video clips up later from ABC's F*ck-Obama-Palooza show.
As heckling erupted at the debate's end, Gibson smiled wanly and said, "The crowd is turning on me." Within three hours of the debate's end, the ABC News website had received over 7,600 comments about the evening's events. The overwhelming majority were negative. Link
