Priorities: President’s Dog Gets More Airtime than Move to Defund ObamaCare

According to the three networks, the serious effort by conservatives to defund ObamaCare isn’t worth as much coverage as the addition of a new dog to the President’s family. In just a 24-hour period, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening and morning shows devoted six minutes and 23 seconds to the debut of the puppy “Sunny.” In contrast, those same shows have granted a scant two minutes and 26 seconds over a two-month period (July 9 through September 8) to the move by conservative senators such as Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to strip funding from the increasingly-unpopular ObamaCare. The networks didn’t bother to stack the deck with segments heavily opposed to the “Defund It” push, promoted by influential conservative organizations and some GOP lawmakers. Instead, they chose to deprive the campaign of nearly all publicity, omitting it from their normal political coverage. ABC was the worst offender, with the network offering a mere eight second reference to the defund effort.
