Obama/ABC Pact Draws Fire

The all-day collaboration between President Barack Obama and ABC News, which will focus on health care and involve a full slate of ABC News programs, is being criticized by both sides. On the one hand, there is fear that the series of events will translate into nothing more than a prolonged infomercial. On the other, there is the fear that such an important matter, worthy of serious debate, should not be the exclusive property of one media outlet.

In all, four ABC News offerings figure in the project – “Good Morning America,” “World News,” the main town hall-style event on “Primetime” and finally, further discussion on “Nightline.”

Obama is the media's sweetheart. Of course they kowtow to him. Funny how that didn't work for Bush.
