This just proves that the Corporate Media will go through untold lengths to prop up the fading Clinton Campaign. I call for ABC to open up their network to all the other candidates.
I wonder who the Disney Corp. has donated their $$ to? The traditional media is slapping us in the face with their favoritism. It's time to write Georgie and know that his career in journalism is OVER!

I know we had all kinds of ABC emails and phone #'s. Please help me locate them and I'll add it to the diary. We need a legal mind to let us know if this violates any laws. But it just seems insane to me that holding a campaign townhall on national TV before a critical primary doesn't violate some rules.
More ABC Honchos to contact:
I think a fair remedy would be to give all Obama voters in IN/NC free tickets to Disneyworld. Or I propose that he be given a townhall forum on GMA on Monday. It's been noted in the comments that Hillary did this early in the campaign season. The Obama campaign needs to be all over this. We have to fight back on this.

[Update x 3]
So some feel this diary is "childish and paranoid", that's an opinion. Some are willing to give ABCNews despite their record the benefit of the doubt and believe this will be a balanced forum. So let's prove them right
I am calling on all Indiana kossacks to get a group together and balance out the voters in Townhall. If ABCNews attempts to stack the room with only Clinton supporters we'll know the true nature of this network. Questions that should be asked:
- Is is right to threaten to "obliterate 70 million Iranians?
- Why is she peddling a gas tax gimmick that is bad for the environment?
- Does she regret her Iraq War vote?
- Why did she change her stance on Nafta for this primary election? Can we really trust her words now?
- Does she reject and denounce Doug Coe who has praised Hitler?
I'm sure you all can come up with more. Please Indiana Kossacks, get into this TOWNHALL!!! It's the only way to provide a fair and balanced forum.
Finally please call Obama HQ and press them to respond agressively to this forum. One thing that I don't like is that Obama has continued to look defensive in posture and Sunday will only highlight this fact again. While Hillary is exchanging pleasantries with Georgie, Obama will get a grillin' from Timmeh. Will it make him look tough? Yes, but Obama does better when he's on offensive, creating the news and not responding to it.
