ABC=PBS?

The logical conclusion to old media’s Red Queen’s Race is rapidly coming into focus:

DRUDGE: ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE. “On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care — a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!”

UPDATE: Reader Paul Jackson writes: “I wonder if ABC will receive a trove of email complaints about this? I’ve already sent mine. I’d like to learn more, like if they plan on granting equal time to those opposed to the President’s agenda…..I kinda think not though.”

Hey, maybe there’s something to Rush’s recent “state-run media” shtick.

Update: Allahpundit dubs ABC the OBC — the Obama Broadcasting Corporation. But with the exception of Fox, that’s what every networks’ news department could be called. Allah adds:

To see how open and honest the debate on this subject really is, read Geraghty’s analysis of the left’s latest Two Minutes Hate, in which the AMA suddenly finds itself targeted by Media Matters, Kossacks, and assorted other Obama water-carriers for daring to oppose a public plan. Like I say, they’re going for broke.

Well, more broke.
