    News agencies that serve as propaganda machines should not be afforded constitutional protections.

    ABC is not a press agency and should therefore be taken out of it's protected status.

    Like it or not, they are protected by the 1A.

    Don't agree with it? Censor it!

    Sounds perfectly constitutional to me. :quirky

    While I admire to sentiment, I would certainly abhor the practice. Where does it stop? Destroying one right to "protect" another has never had the desired effect, and the unintended consequences are usually horrific.:?

    More of a sentiment for this particular new agency than anything I'd actually support. I should have been more clear.

    Stuff just irks me, that's all.

    The same could be said about Faux News, the most blatent progagandist channel in the US. I think ABC is simply trying to be the leftist answer.

    Right, because none of the other networks, newspapers or magazines will give the lefts point of view... RIGHT!

    What ABC should be ashamed, most of the main stream media should be ashamed. The press should be offering a critical assessment, instead they are lap dogs for the far left and this administration.

    The idea that Obama and the left cant get there agenda out is a joke, a bad joke.

    Since fox news is anti gun, how then can abc being anti gun also be called balance?
    I thought it was just being a good reporter till they brought out the anti guest,
    and the interview looked like a BHO love fest from msnbc.
    So balanced is anti v blind blue in the face anti I guess.

    Would love to have the 1a amendment fall under the same restrictions as the
    2a one for just one year, and then see if the press is so willing to endorse
    others rights being trampled so happily.
    i.e. subject to local police attitudes, ignoring rulings in their favor,
    'reasonable' waiting periods to file stories, background checks before buying
    a new camera or typewriter. micro ink patterns on all printers so gov can
    find out who printed the news story (oops already doing it).
    Expensive federal tax stamps to file stories involving the executive branch,
    and needing to get a new stamp if you change a word in the story.
    Needing a license to conceal press id.
    Paper and pens must be locked up away from each other when traveling.
    Pulling out a recorder is brandishing and disorderly conduct.

    Lets see how they respond to "common sense laws"

    While I often don't agree with Fox, they seem to be the ONLY major channel that has courage and desire to step up to the left and expose their lies and crimes. EVERY other channel is deeply in love with the left and spewing leftist propoganda all around - if anything, it's Fox which is trying to be the rightist answer to thistravesty and yetthey are nowhere close to ABC and alike inhow dirty and blunt their methods are.

    The people who bash FOX... Limbaugh, Levin, Savage, Boortz et all... are parrotting other moonbat libs who've never actually listened/watched at all. They'd rather be fed the constant leftard drivel from the DNC propaganda tools... and fools. Constant Commie Kool Aid.

    LOL

    If by "rightist" you mean "fascist," then you might have a point.

    Faux News is #1 for fear mongering, #1 for propaganda, and #1 for passing off opinion as fact. It's the station designed to cater to the Bush/Reagan lovers that are too stupid to know any better.

    No one ever said the other networks are biased, but Faux takes media bias to staggering new heights.

    The only real and strongfacism that exists in the US right now is left-wing, and it's flourishing inDClike never, with roots coming straight out of theWhiteHouse.

    I agree that Fox isn't perfect, but at least they actually tell the truth every now and then, unlike the rest of liberal media. ABC and alike are just talking heads for nobama and his gang - kinda like Pravda was for Stalin. They are catering for brainwashed pro-obama zombies because no one with an ounce of brain in the head would be able to watch more than a minute of the inane crap they are spewing.

    I agree with you Chaingun 81 .

    The sheep that are feed by the liberal media are at least blissful in their mindless state , however the pain of a sheep that is a liberal thinker must be awful .

    What do you think AWDstylez ? Kool Aid ?

    Sig line material, there.

    BTW, ABC is owned by Disney. Remember that Disney is exceedingly anti-gun and found a loophole (an actual one, not an imagined one like the gun show loophole) in Florida's "guns in the parking lot" law which they used to prohibit employees from keeping guns locked up in their cars in the parking lot.

    Seeing as how that law violates private property rights, I give them much credit and respect for getting around it.

    The obamaphilia would almost be amusing if it was not for the damage being done to this great land by the left, aided and abetted by obama apologists like AWDstylez!
