ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: With the Republican National Committee complaining to ABC News about plans to broadcast a health care “conversation” from the White House next week, ABC today has responded to the complaint.  The letter — to RNC Chief of Staff Ken McKay, from ABC News Senior Vice President Kerry Smith — points out that ABC “will have complete editorial control” over the broadcasts, and says that “no one watching, listening to, or reading ABC News will lack for an understanding of all sides of these important questions.”  Read the full response HERE.   McKay’s letter — linked via the Drudge Report — states that he is “concerned this event will become a glorified infomercial to promote the Democrat agenda,” and asked that it be paid for by the Democratic National Committee if the Republican Party isn’t included in the event.   Read McKay’s letter to ABC News HERE.
