Steele: 'Fight' ABC

Who knew that another dull town hall meeting could be such fodder for conservatives? Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is using the upcoming health care special set to air on ABC next week as a fundraising tool, saying that the GOP needs donations to buy air time on the network for a rebuttal. ABC has been on the receiving end of criticism from the right for refusing to air a commercial payed by an advocacy group opposed to Obama's health care plan. ABC executives insist they are only following standard policy. When asked in an interview aired Wednesday whether he felt he got favorable coverage, Obama said there was one network "entirely devoted to attacking my administration." Fox News pundits have been frothing at the mouth ever since.
