Obama takes over ABC news........

ABC News’ Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer to Moderate a Primetime Conversation with
President Barack Obama About the Future of the Nation’s Healthcare System

Special Edition of “Primetime” to Air from the White House Wed., June 24 at 10:00 p.m., ET

“Questions for the President: Prescription for America” to Continue on “Nightline” at 11:35 p.m., ET

“Good Morning America” and “World News” to Originate from the White House on Wednesday

“GMA” to Feature Exclusive Interview with President Obama

As the nation debates sweeping changes in healthcare, ABC News’ Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer will moderate a conversation with President Obama about this critical issue on the nation’s agenda. A special edition of “Primetime,” “Questions for the President: Prescription for America,” will air on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The conversation with the President will continue on “Nightline” at 11:35 p.m., ET.

During the discussion from the East Room of the White House, President Obama will answer questions from an audience made up of Americans selected by ABC News who have divergent opinions in this historic debate. ABC News Medical Editor Dr. Timothy Johnson will also take part in the conversation, which will focus on different ideas for how to fix the system and on how proposed changes will impact our already fragile economy.

Wednesday morning’s “Good Morning America” will originate from the South Lawn of the White House and will include an exclusive interview with President Obama. He sits down with Diane Sawyer to discuss healthcare and other issues on the nation’s agenda. Wednesday’s program will also feature portions of Robin Roberts’ exclusive interview with First Lady Michelle Obama.

Charles Gibson will anchor “World News” from the Blue Room of the White House on Wednesday.

ABCNews.com will invite viewers to join the discussion and share their questions about health care reform at ABCNews.com/Politics starting Tuesday, June 16. ABCNews.com will be working with Digg.com to select popular questions voted on by online users and some of those questions will be put to President Obama during the program. ABC News’ daily political webcast, “Top Line,” will focus on healthcare reform throughout the week of June 22. ABCNews.com’s senior political reporter and author of The Note, Rick Klein, will live-blog and interact with users as the forum airs, and full video coverage of the forum will be posted online. A special section of ABCNews.com/Politics dedicated to the healthcare debate will offer comprehensive coverage of the forum and will continue as legislation is taken up in Congress.

ABC News Radio will air portions of “Questions for the President: Prescription for America” and will also produce a special edition of its weekly news magazine, “PERSPECTIVE,” that will include portions of the special. “PERSPECTIVE” will be available to ABC News Radio affiliates for use over the weekend of June 27-28.

Marc Burstein is the executive producer of the special edition of Primetime “Questions for the President: Prescription for America.”

I'm sure you prefer the "Fair and Unbalanced Channel", where you and Glenn Beck can have a good cry over things.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Nice to see they are going to get this important debate out to the people. I suppose Bruce would prefer Fox News-style coverage, where this would be turned into a "tea party" while O'reilly screams and Beck cries, while Hannity bleats "I just can't take much more of this!", in other words, his idea of "objective media".

Of course! Right to the people with a refusal to give time for a response.

Of course ABC will be able to ask questions. You know, like "Mr. President, what has enchanted you the most since you have been in office?" or "Mr. President, what kind of training will you be putting your new family dog Bo through?" or maybe they might throw in a hardball question like "Mr. President, where will you be taking the first lady on your next date night?"

I suspect they will at least be more professional than what we got back when it was Fox News fawing over Bush. Why do you hate America so?

Why don't you watch the shows and see what the questions are instead of just giving bullshit comments to assumptions for which you have no knowledge. Or would that be to hard? Might you gain perspective and a different view than the rightwing brainwash that you now have fully anchored.
