from Brent Bozell at the Media Research Center:
I've just received shocking news that demands immediateaction by every member of our MRC Action team.
Tuesday, Politico broke the news that ABCNews' George Stephanopoulosis currently conducting private, daily phone briefings with Obamachief of staff Rahm Emanuel. CNN's Paul Begala, James Carville and pollster Stan Greenberg are also involved.
Imagine the liberal media's reaction if Brit Hume or Rush Limbaugh had been conducting daily strategy briefings with George Bush's chief of staff!
This is the height of irresponsible journalism! What could be worse than the liberal media's sycophantic coverage of President Barack Obama? ABC's George Stephanopoulos actively helping design and deliver the administration's strategy and message -which he is then charged with reporting. Will he be critical ofthe White House's plans when he spends mornings helping to craft them?+ +
Urgent Action Item
Clearly, journalistic lines have been crossed -- especially by Stephanopoulos who presents himself as a credible journalist and not a partisan commentator.That is why I am asking every member of the MRC Action team totake immediate action right now.
Here's how you can directly impact this breaking situation:
++ Call ABC News
take a moment to contact ABC News and express outrage that one of their so-called journalists is involved in daily planning meetings with the White House. Demand that he recuse himself from any reporting involving the Obama Administration. Here is the number to call the contacts below: 202-222-7700

++ Alert your Friends we can't allow this outrageous affront to go unchallenged!
That's why, after making your calls, I'm urging you to forward this message.
So, Rush and other conservatives must be silent and Obama's pit bull Emmanuel will give daily marching orders to his version of PRAVDA, the sympathetic left-wing media.
If this doesn't send a chill up your spine, WAKE UP!!
