Montgomery, AL (WSFA) -  Wednesday night, ABC Network aired an exclusive Town Hall meeting with President Barack Obama.

The topic was his healthcare plan, and the program did not include a republican rebuttal.

Before it aired, some Montgomerians showed up outside the local ABC affiliate to voice their opposition to the broadcast.

Members of the Montgomery and Wetumpka Tea Parties gathered outside WNCF to rally against what they say is biased news coverage.

Dozens of Republican Congressmen sent a letter to ABC for the same reason.

ABC responded before the show aired saying it wasn't slanted, or an info-mercial.
