Shadegg: BOYCOTT ABC Over Obama Health Care Infomercial
Today Rep. John Shadegg said Americans should boycott ABC.
The Hill reported:
Rep. John Shadegg says all Americans should “boycott ABC” for the network’s plan to air a “one-sided” townhall meeting on President Obama’s healthcare plan.
The Arizona Republican tells The Hill that it’s “outrageous” that the news network intends to air a 90-minute primetime special Wednesday evening featuring Obama talking about his plan, which includes a “government-run” option.
“I think every Americian should boycott ABC, if they aren’t going to cover both sides of the issue,” Shadegg said. He is a member of the Energy and Commerce Health subcommittee.
Shadegg said that the idea of “airing the issue is wonderful, but the idea of making it one-sided is outrageous.”
His fellow House Republicans were upset as well.
UPDATE: I boycotted the infomercial but was wondering how many of the questions came from Obama supporters like the last time?
