All Bullshit Channel (ABC nickname)

The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) began in 1943 and is headquartered on Manhattan’s Upper West Side (near Lincoln Center). A few critics have said that “ABC” stands for “All Bullshit Channel” (cited in print since at least 1996).

Other ABC nicknames include “Almost Broadcasting Company” and “Alphabet Network.”


Wikipedia: American Broadcasting Company
The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) is an American television network. Created in 1943 from the former NBC Blue radio network, ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Company and is part of Disney-ABC Television Group. Its first broadcast on television was in 1948. As one of the Big Three television networks for its first 45 years, its programming has contributed to American popular culture.

Corporate headquarters are in the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City, while programming offices are in Burbank, California adjacent to the Walt Disney Studios and the corporate headquarters of The Walt Disney Company.

The formal name of the operation is American Broadcasting Companies, Inc., and that name appears on copyright notices for its in-house network productions and on all official documents of the company, including paychecks and contracts. A separate entity named ABC Inc., formerly Capital Cities/ABC Inc., is that firm’s direct parent company, and that company is owned in turn by Disney. The network is sometimes referred to as the “Alphabet Network”, due to the letters “ABC” being the first three letters of the Latin alphabet, in order.

All Bullshit Channel (ABC) is at it again
Once again, the idiots at one of the MSM news outlets are trying to make the news instead of just reporting it.
