The scope -- and dangers -- of GE's control of NBC and MSNBC


www.salon.com

I want to return to the subject of GE's silencing of Keith Olbermann both because there are new facts I've obtained that shed light on what happened here and because this is one of the most blatant examples yet of pernicious corporate control over America's journalism. The most striking aspect of this episode is that GE isn't even bothering any longer to deny the fact that they exert control over MSNBC's journalism. They've brazenly dispensed with the long-held fiction of the sanctity of journalistic independence from interference by the corporate parents that own America's largest ne

I find this story to be HUGE, recently Olbermann removed a man named Richard Wolffe from his program, because it was because he was a corporate lobbyist! The article goes on to show just how deep the interests are at GE to spin the news in favor of big government. It's a great article, it's really long, and yes I believe this is breaking news. It's not a new development, but it is a recent uncovering. Fox News is right leaning, and many people criticize it's news as "fixed" or "faux"...but News Corp is a media company in its entirety with no real interests; GE which has been ignored by...everyone on the left, has much deeper pockets and is the largest corporate lobbyist in the world, and there is clear evidence that it is using its news outlets NBC, and MSNBC to push it's corporate interests. Olbermann and company appear to be put in place simply to push GE corporate profits with spun news.

GE was the LARGEST entity that benefited from the TARP funds!!

$340 Billion!!!

I have stayed away from ANYTHING NBC, MSNBC, CNBC -

GE - is the Largest Corporation in the World and because they own 2 small banks - they TOOK 340 Billion of taxpayers money - Just Because they Could!!! Besides that, they don't have to go by the rules of TARP!!!

DISGUSTING!!!!!

I will NOT look at anything of theirs anymore - and no one else should either!!

I did a thread saying BOYCOTT NBC - it has links to the article about GE getting the TARP funds!! The thread is from June - but it has the info!!

it is here - in case someone wants to know more:

GE - has all of our money!!

I always loved this skit. Aired once then GE pulled it off SNL. Can't have the masses hearing this stuff now can we.


vodpod.com...

Couldn't find it on youtube(surprise surprise). Most other sites has it removed for copyright violations. Sums it all up in two minutes and twenty six seconds.

Edited to add: There is no such thing as Free Press anymore. At least not where MSM is concerned. It's been dead for a while.
