The guy who owns the Columbus ABC television station is a pretty odd duck (I don’t know his name, but I know he is an independent owner). He exercises much more control over programming than most station owners. Example: To my knowledge, NYPD Blue has never been shown on his station.

He got into trouble when he wanted to show a television special essentially toeing the swift boat veterans line. It kind of made national news, sparking discussions over the value of political contributions and free speech. The local station ended up playing a watered down version of the program, spending equal time criticizing W’s time in the National Guard.

Well, interestingly, I couldn’t find the GOP debate on ABC this morning.

Oh well, I only have 8 future GOP debates from which to choose. Goodness gracious!
