Always Broadcasting Crap (ABC nickname)

The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) began in 1943 and is headquartered on Manhattan’s Upper West Side (near Lincoln Center). The ABC nickname of “Always Broadcasting Crap” was posted on the newsgroup alt.abortion on December 14, 1999.

Other ABC nicknames include “All Bullshit Channel,” “Almost Broadcasting Company,” “Alphabet Network,” “Already Been Canceled” and “Awful Broadcasting Company.”


Wikipedia: American Broadcasting Company
The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) is an American commercial broadcast radio and television networks that is a subsidiary of the Disney Media Networks division of The Walt Disney Company. The network is headquartered in Burbank, California, on Riverside Drive, directly across the street from Walt Disney Studios and adjacent to the Roy E. Disney Animation Building. The network’s secondary offices, and headquarters of its news division, is in New York City, New York, at their broadcast center at 77 West 66th Street in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Since 2007, when ABC Radio (also known as Cumulus Media Networks) was sold to Citadel Broadcasting, ABC has reduced its broadcasting operations almost exclusively to television. The fifth-oldest major broadcasting network in the world and the youngest of the Big Three television networks, ABC is nicknamed “The Alphabet Network”, as its initialism also represents the first three letters of the English alphabet, in order.

Well, we wouldn’t want any unbiased segments showing birthparents or adoptees as normal, well-adjusted folks slipping out over the airwaves!  Someone might begin to think we’re real people instead of stereotypes, and God knows the folks at Always Broadcasting Crap wouldn’t want THAT to happen.
