MRC's Brent Bozell Declares ABC the 'All Barack Channel'

<p>&quot;ABC News has more than earned the title of the All Barack Channel, they have recklessly fought to achieve it,&quot; Media Research Center President Brent Bozell stated in a press release today.</p><p>The network had promised to deliver a health care presentation that would &quot;not be ‘slanted' in any way - much less a ‘day-long infomercial' or ‘in-kind free advertising',&quot; but not a single expert was offered to counter President Obama's plan to nationalize the nation's health care industry. </p><p>Instead, ABC News &quot;balanced&quot; itself this morning by having Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on today's &quot;Good Morning America&quot; to discuss his health care ideas - for a 3 minute 5 second segment.  Ryan got less than 2 minutes (1 minute, 47 seconds) to respond to questions. Obama received 25 times that much time last night.</p><!--break--><p>&quot;After being condemned by conservatives for organizing a Presidential infomercial, they publicly pledged a fair discussion. But their coverage is proof that they were disingenuous and made a mockery out of the very notion of journalism,&quot; the NewsBusters publisher added. &quot;The All Barack Channel is nothing but a megaphone for President Obama and has committed itself to the success of his radical, left-wing agenda.&quot;</p><p>For the full press release, <a href="http://www.mrc.org/press/releases/2009/20090625030701.aspx" target="_blank">check here</a>. </p><p>The MRC yesterday launched a new Web site that exposes what the liberal news media are not telling the American public about President Obama's health care plan.
