On the one side you have ABC News letting the Obama administration give a plug for their health care program
from the White House on June 24th. On the other side, President Obama complains
: "I’ve got one television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration…That’s a pretty big megaphone." The interesting point about the president's statement is that he is upset that there is "one television station" that is attacking him. Say that is true, that means that Obama believes that you have ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, CNN Headline News, PBS, and others who are not attacking him that way. In any case, Fox News regularly has people on both sides of an issue on at the same time. Just look at the balance in the political commentators, and compare that to the lack of balance on other networks.
UPDATE: Note that Drudge reports that ABC refuses opposition ads during White House special
