    This isn't a diary about Obama angst, it's a diary about media bias, which we all know exists. The fact is, they investigated the jobs numbers because of the whining of the guys in Crazytown, but they glossed over Romney's blatant lies and abandonment of his stances that can easily be verified on his campaign's website.
    I'd love to see Michelle on GMA, but not as a guest host. It just looks wrong, no matter who it is.

      the chief point of this diary is bogus. If you want to write a diary about media bias, don't use a headline and a lead with a disingenuous premise. If anything, Michelle gets the better end of the deal by hosting it closer to the election. If the diarist wants to argue that neither should be hosting the show, then argue it. The diarist did not. There are plenty of valid reasons to attack the media. This is not one of them. This makes Kossacks look silly, and it makes us look dishonest by omission.

        I think it is spot on.

        There is no way Michelle could do this.  It is an empty offer.

        ABC routinely has Coulter on as a legitimate commentator.  And remember the last time ABC hosted presidential debates?

        ABC shouldn't do this.  And they deserve shit for it.

      the ABC is owned by Disney. Do not expect any real journalism from them. They stopped doing that a long time ago.
