President Barack Obama was a guest at the 1991 wedding of ABC senior foreign correspondent and vice presidential debate moderator Martha Raddatz, The Daily Caller has learned. Obama and groom Julius Genachowski, whom Obama would later tap to head the Federal Communications Commission, were Harvard Law School classmates at the time and members of the Harvard Law Review.
After TheDC made preliminary inquiries Monday to confirm Obama’s attendance at the wedding, ABC leaked a pre-emptive statement to liberal-leaning news outlets including [url="http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2012/10/abc-daily-caller-attack-on-raddatz-absurd-137902.html"][color="#832921"]Politico[/color][/url] and [url="http://andrewsullivan.thedailybeast.com/2012/10/the-decline-and-fall-of-tucker-carlson-ctd-2.html"][color="#832921"]The Daily Beast[/color][/url] Tuesday, revealing what may have been internal network pressure felt just days before Raddatz was scheduled to moderate the one and only vice-presidential debate Thursday night.
Both Politico and The Daily Beast jumped to ABC and Raddatz’s defense.

Yet another ABC "news" person with no bias...

I can see the questions now

Mod: Obama, how does it feel to be the first black president?

Mod: Romney, I read on the Internet that you are the spawn of satan! How did that come about?

i don't think it's that big of a deal but i can see why people would be concerned.

molding this into your paradigm of that derned left-wing liberal lamestream mainstream media is patently stupid though, and unfortunately i already know who's going to do it

there is a higher percentage of people who would classify themselves as liberal working for media outlets than those who would identify as conservatives, i will grant you that, so if your accusation is based on demographic then yeah, they're pretty liberal

anyone who's actually studied the issue on a venue other than theblaze.com and yahoo news story comment sections is aware that the evidence shows it's not really a causal relationship.

it's a lot easier to cram evidence around your rigid weltanschaaung than actually changing it with the continual absorption of data though so it's not like you're alone. confirmation biases are a mental disease.

You mean like cramming evidence about an obscure youtube video as some legitimization of an outright Al Qaeda attack on our consulate...and actual death of our ambassador...ON 9/11? No...you've got the causal relationships farked up.

are you aware of the accepted synthesis of timely information dissemination and fact-checking to preserve journalistic integrity, or do you think everyone is like matt drudge?

Do you want to go back to 9/12 and research who was disseminating inaccurate information...even up until a UN speech?
