ABC Democratic Debate NOT Airing Live on the West Coast

Clinton Obama Pennsylvania Debate to be Streamed Live? Yes or no ABC

ABC News, what is the matter with you?

ABC News, the National Constitution Center and WPVI-TV will host a Democratic Presidential Candidate debate in Philadelphia on Wednesday, April 16th. The live 90-minute debate, moderated by ABC News anchors Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos, will air from 8-10 PM ET/PT on the ABC Television Network. — U.S. State Dept. Web site

This is such an ignorant, irresponsible, and backwards move on behalf of ABC, it’s beyond belief.

This would be a perfect opportunity for Disney-owned ABC News Networks to promote their streaming video services. I am crossing my fingers that the debate WILL be live-streaming via local Philadelphia affiliate WPVI. As it stands right now, WPVI has a “breaking alert” that they will live-stream President Bush talking about Climate Change in about 30 minutes.


Don’t even get me started about how ridiculous this concept is: Bush addressing climate change with THE POPE at his side? Hilarious!

  1. I’m studying in England at the moment – it’s quite ridiculous that ABC are not planning to stream this debate online.

    I’m reliant on an ABC affiliate streaming the debate – it seems that may be possible but I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
