ABC’s Health Care Infomercial is a Ratings Flop

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Writer In spite of all the hype and promises to be fair and balanced, ABC's one-sided informercial on President Barack Obama’s health care initiatives attracted less than five million viewers. According to a report by Newsbusters, the special, which aired on Wednesday evening at 10:00 p.m. and featured no opposing viewpoints, was a dud according to the ratings.    “The ‘Super-dooper, Obamalicious, Doctor Spock medicine woman show’ was only able to cajole 4.703 million viewers into watching while NBC picked up 7.414 and CBS got 7.393 in the ten o'clock hour,” Newsbusters reported. “Remembering that we have 300 million citizens and healthcare is supposed to be the biggest emergency in history, well, that is a paltry number of viewers that Doc Barack got.” © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly®/Women of Grace®  http://www.womenofgrace.com
