Damn Obama! Damn his secrecy! Damn his lies!

Health Care Summit Won’t Be Seen Live on Most C-SPAN Channels

Despite pleas for greater access to coverage of health care reform debate, viewers may not be able to watch live coverage of Thursday’s White House health care summit on C-SPAN — or even C-SPAN 2.

You won’t see it on C-SPAN. More than a year after candidate Barack Obama promised that the entire health care debate would be broadcast live on the channel, and after months of Republican complaints that Democrats were negotiating behind closed doors, Thursday’s health care summit will not be broadcast on C-SPAN.

Obama’s top-level bipartisan summit won’t even be seen on C-SPAN 2.

Heed our pleas, dammit! Gracious, we can’t even watch it on C-SPAN? Not even on C-SPAN 2? Good Lord, will we need to decrypt some Russian-language PPV channel to watch this thing?!?!? Whatevah shall we do? Wherevah shall we go?

Oops, read on.

Television audiences who rely on C-SPAN and C-SPAN 2 for uninterrupted coverage of public affairs events will have to tune to C-SPAN 3 or other cable outlets, including Fox News, to watch the event. 

FoxNews.com will stream live coverage of the White House summit in its entirety.

I did not add the bolding, or the italics. That was all them.

Television audiences who rely on C-SPAN and C-SPAN 2 for uninterrupted coverage of public affairs events will have to tune to C-SPAN 3 or other cable outlets, including Fox News, to watch the event. Also, if  it’s sunny outside, thirsty people who rely on standing outside in the rain with their mouths open are screwed.
