ABC repeatedly reports comments by Obama's "allies," but won't mention comments by McCain endorsers

ABC repeatedly noted controversial comments by Obama's "allies," but has yet to report comments by McCain endorsers

Summary: During recent editions of Good Morning America and World News, ABC discussed and aired reports on the "explosive statements" of Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, but ABC has yet to report on controversial comments by two "allies" of Sen. John McCain. For example, evangelist John Hagee has said that "Hurricane Katrina was, in fact, the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans," and pastor Rod Parsley reportedly wrote that "America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion {of Islam} destroyed."

1. ABC is the most reflective of our fascist government after Fox.
But I wouldn't want to live on the difference.

3. I've blocked it since that hatchet job they did on Clinton
with the faux 9/11 dramatization. Haven't missed them at all.

2. Thank you for focusing on McCain's backers
If we are going to be successful in countering these attacks on Obama, we must focus on McCain's backers.

PLEASE let's don't eat our own.

6. The problem with this
is that McCain did not sit in the pews of his backers for 20 years.
They keep pointing this out over and over on MSM

4. I hope you're not waiting for the media to stop giving McCain special treatment
because that will happen probabaly about in year 5 or 6 of his presidency.

5. I, for one, would love to see a sermon by McSame's minister
about adultery. And then ask conservatives how it could be possible for the candidate to ignore his minister's beliefs, particularly when conservatives claim that we are really electing ayatolluhs, not private citizens in a secular democracy.
