ABC’s Health Care Special: Reviews

Prescription.jpgExcerpts from two reviews of Wednesday night‘s ABC News special “Questions for the President: Prescription for America”:

The Washington Post‘s Howard Kurtz says that, despite being criticized “as an Obama ‘infomercial’ before a single moment had aired…it was a pretty good look at a complicated issue.”

But Kurtz does have his “quibbles. The president was allowed to give long answers, with [Charles] Gibson interrupting only a couple times.” And “I would have included a Republican member of Congress” on the program.

• The Baltimore Sun‘s David Zurawik writes: “Let’s make one thing clear right from the start: ABC News did not give President Barack Obama a free pass in its prime-time special.”

But, he says, “Obama had his way from early morning to late night on ABC Wednesday to push his agenda for massive social change on healthcare. In short, he owned ABC’s airwaves.”
