Bummer: Obama Asked Networks For Primetime Slot to Spike Football on Phony 7.1 Million O-Care Number, Was Rejected
Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, April 3, 2014, 4:59 PM

Barack Obama asked the networks for a primetime slot to spike the football on his phony and already discredited 7.1 million Obamacare enrollee number.

The networks said no.
Buzzfeed reported, via Townhall:

    White House officials sought valuable primetime air for a rare, impromptu Tuesday night address to tout the accomplishment of signing up more than 7 million people under the Affordable Care Act.

    But network officials refused to make the kind of accommodation they did previously for the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, for instance, and Obama was left instead cutting into the much smaller audiences of Ellen and other daytime shows.

    Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the primetime slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular. One top White House official referred BuzzFeed to another top official for comment on the conversation with networks, but the second official did not respond to a request for comment.

Now if he had been a real president, someone of substance, a leader, he probably would have gotten the time; but an effete little baby-boy doesn't have quite the same pull.
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI

It would have been a two hour telethon for 'Obama/Democrats'..uh, uh, I mean Obamacare, of course.
The execs knew that they would be giving away primetime for an unpaid 'infomercial'.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
