President Obama Refused Primetime Airtime on Healthcare Address

Biden and Obama healthcareNo way on God’s green earth would any white President be snubbed by the media for primetime airing on an accomplishment of healthcare reform.

It’s SHAMEFUL how the media treats the black Potus. Denying him primetime air to speak on 7.1 million people enrolling in the Affordable Care Act …like he isn’t worthy. He’s the President of the United States, dammit! When he wants to address the Nation, you give him AIRTIME!

How often does President Obama request primetime airtime? Count it if you dare?! What is the problem? The media gave coverage to George W Bush standing in front of a “Mission Accomplished” sign. We all know how that turned out. I guess primetime air is reserved only for the white Presidents? We know this would have never happened to Bill or Hillary Clinton if they had succeeded in reforming healthcare.

The job of the media is to report the news and inform the public. If there is another agenda going on, then there goes democracy. SHAME on you, Broadcasting networks!

    Networks Denied WH Request for Prime-Time Spot
    By Adam O’Neal – April 4, 2014

    Several sources told the publication that the Obama administration had wanted to “emphasize a bright moment following the challenging rollout and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular.”

    Instead, President Obama delivered midday remarks in a Rose Garden address — preempting significantly less popular daytime programming.

    In his remarks, Obama declared “the Affordable Care Act is here to stay” and that the debate about the law was effectively over. He added that “as messy as it’s been sometimes, as contentious as it’s been sometimes, it’s progress.” Thanks to a last-minute surge, enrollments totaled 7.1 million, easily topping the administration’s goal of 6 million (which had been downsized from 7 million after the troubled debut of

    This is absolutely pitiful.

    Not surprising, but pitiful.

    There are no secrets in DC. @ABC @NBC @CBS should be ashamed.

    Keep the WH YouTube site going, Mr. President. Throw a fucking party, and we’ll Celebrate with you!

    Thanks for spreading the word on how lame our media is.

  6. Black men went from being denied a meal at the white lunch counter to being denied primetime airtime while residing in black skin as Potus. Nothing has changed!

    This is the attention you receive when you LIE to Americans:

  8. When Chuck Todd stated it’s not his job to correct false information about the ACA, he knew it was safe to say it.That’s why he wasn’t fired.

  9. Ametia says:

    The jackals and the GOP took a THUMPING with that 7.1 MILLION and counting ACA enrollment.

    So, NOPE, we can’t give that BLACK dude prime time with all those MILLIONS more watching the celebration of Americans receiving affordable HEALTHCARE!


    The cast of characters on this poster get air time, including the Rupert Murdock-RIGHT-WING owned rag get to print the most despicable nonsense about POTUS.

  10. When, pray tell, has any American President been denied primetime air to speak to the Nation?

    • Ametia says:

      I’m not aware of any in my 5 decades + on the planet. Now we can clearly see why PBO uses social media and goes around the press.

      They don’t report facts, they ask the most asinine questions, and he still comes out of the jackal den with his brain intact after the ignorant, incompetent paid STENOGRAPHERS have done their master’s bidding.

  11. Ametia says:

    All of this shameful, deceitful behavior by America’s citizens will be written in the history books. I sure am keep a journal of the total, absolute racist, mean-spirited, hateful behavior of this segment of American.

    Hell, we all could write books on the ugliness that has reared its head in the age of the Obama presidency.


  12. Ametia says:

    They have no SHAME. And the proof that these clowns were rooting for ACA to FAIL!

    They like their corporate masters are rooting against Americans, except for the 1%

    There is no LEGITIMATE media in America. It’s owned by corporations, whose only interest is making money.

    There are NO legitimate journalist in America. There are talking heads who are made up and given a script. No formal journalism skills or college education. *LOOKING#@CHUCKTODD

    We saw how the media has played BLACKOUT, when POTUS was traveling around america campaigning and speaking. Even when he travels overseas, they fail to report, and when they do, they break in and go back to their regularly scheduled propaganda.

    And that’s why PBO gave that righteous SMACKDOWN in the WHITE HOUSE Rose Garden.


    He called out the fuckers and yes, that includes what is masquerading as news source.

    This is absolutely shameful. Beyond shameful.

    Not much shocks me anymore, but this does. You would think they would have more concern about public perception, but they obviously don’t.

    Shame on them, indeed!!!

        Of course. What gets me is that they are so stupid that they think that they are smart and so crafty and cunning. President Obama is just plain straightforward and open and honest. That’s what I love about him in addition to him being handsome and intelligent and true to First Lady O.

      • Ametia says:

        Our President is LOVED by a huge swath of America, and the corporate owned infotainment cable stations know it. Can’t have prime time celebrations with the folks who voted for PBO not once but twice!
