This is on the order of MSNBC turning to Glenn Beck as a contributor. Or, CNN hiring Michelle Malkin for commentary. ABCNews has confirmed an agreement to have Big Government’s Andrew Breitbart and Dana Loesch on the air next Tuesday night, providing “live coverage” of election night.
ABC announced their election night coverage early on and Big Journalism Editor Dana Loesch will join the network in studio for 6 p.m. – 2 a.m. election night; Bigs founder and head of the Breitbart empire Andrew Breitbart will be bringing analysis live from Arizona.
Providing analysis and historical context will be ABC News contributors George Will, Cokie Roberts, Donna Brazile and Matthew Dowd. They will be joined by Ron Brownstein, Editorial Director for the National Journal Group and conservative commentator Dana Loesch.
The Bigs will bring you up-to-the-minute live election coverage with editors liveblogging, video streaming, and broadcasting round-the-clock coverage from sources including ABC, Hugh Hewitt / Salem Radio Coverage, CNN, MSNBC, PBS News Hour, and CBS news.
That sound you just heard was the entire left blogosphere detonating like a suspicious package tucked into the cargo hold of a New York bound UPS plane.
Although the left can’t admit it, the fact is that ABC is recognizing that Americans really do want fair and balanced coverage, and won’t watch a news broadcast with the standard fare of liberal commentator after liberal commentator blasting the people they voted for. Leftists who want that crap will turn to MSNBC, and by God that network will probably see dozens and dozens of new viewers tuning in.
UPDATE: Jake Tapper, former host of ABC’s This Week and the network’s Senior White House correspondent, took a blistering from lefty bloggers and Tweeps. As a result, a Twitter hashtag game started on Twitter and is now trending as the #3 topic in the US.
