ABC: Acceptable Broadcast Company

Fact: ABC made a multi-million dollar donation for Obama’s inauguration.
Fact: ABC was then the only news company allowed to give an inauguration-day interview with Obama.

This prompted veteran CBS newsman Bill Plante to accuse the Obama administration of “Pay to Play” politics with the press core.

Naw. That can’t be. Obama promised to be…what was the word? Different. Right? I even remember something about how he wanted to be “open” and ”transparent”.

Well, what’s becoming “transparent” is that Obama is a primadonna (surprise!) who can’t stand actually having to answer questions from an unruly news core. He’s just not used to it. After all, the Pope of Hope should not have to answer negative questions.

Don’t believe me?

So, mister nice guy—that’s "The Pope" to you—asked the press core to assemble for him suddenly Thursday, Jan 21. But doggon it, a Politico reporter actually tried to ask Obama a substantive question about how Obama could reconcile his order to keep lobbyists away from him, only to actually name a lobbyist to be Deputy Defense Secretary.

Good Question!

He responded by trying to stop the inquiry: "Ahh, see, I came down here to visit. See this is what happens. I can't end up visiting with you guys and shaking hands if I'm going to get grilled every time I come down here.”

But you know, some reporters just can’t take a hint. So the guy from Politico pressed him further. And we all know that good reporters aren’t supposed to actually make Obama answer a question. That’s what assholes like Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity do.

Pressed for an answer, Obama got snippy.

Alright, come on. We will be having a press conference at which time you can feel free to [ask] questions. Right now, I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to you guys - that's all I was trying to do."

What a swell guy. He just wanted to give his adoring fans a chance to shake his hand, stroke his penis, kiss his ass, whatever they might want.

So, I’ve got a suggestion for ABC: change your name from the AMERICAN Broadcast Company, and let’s just be more honest. It should be the ACCEPTABLE Broadcast Company, because you AGREE to PAY Obama in order to provide him with warm, fuzzy and agreeable photo ops, thus making yourselves ACCEPTABLE.

So I guess ABC has decided to become the official PROPAGANDA OUTLET of the Obama regime.

Yet another example of how the liberals are happily converting the United States of America into yet another banana republic.
