NBC, MSNBC, GE and the Twisted Leftist, Obama-media

Despite all the criticisms of the Fox News Channel broadcasted on MSNBC for promoting tea party coverage, one thing hasn’t been pointed out – how the NBC networks, including CNBC and MSNBC are given a pass for their shameless promotion of their Green Week and Green is Universal network events.

Jonah Goldberg, editor-at-large for National Review and author of “Liberal Fascism,” appeared on Fox News Channel’s April 18 “Fox News Watch” and commented on FNC’s promotion of the tea parties, but the double standard of MSNBC’s criticism of Fox News.

“I think that there’s a perfectly legitimate criticism against Fox for not so much the coverage, but the commercials, you know – promoting the coverage, which was in effect advertisements for these things,” Goldberg explained. “But, this was all transparent, people knew that’s Fox was doing. But let’s flashback to what GE, to pick up a point that Jim [Pinkerton] made – that GE basically issued a fatwa to NBC for Green Week, where they did hundreds of hours of environmental messaging in all of their dramas, news coverage, “Today” show – throughout the network and it was all hailed as a wonderful progressive thing. That is a much more pernicious promotion than anything Fox did.”

Interesting that Bill O’Reilly of Fox News has routinely called NBC Uni topper Jeff Zucker, or to Jeffrey Immelt,  “pinheads” and a “despicable human beings.”

Also interesting that in February, President Barack Obama has named Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of NBC Universal parent GE, to his new economic advisory board — even though the performance of the GE empire under Immelt has been miserable…..
