Now we know why MSNBC and the networks of NBC (all owned by GE) were such cheerleaders for Obama all year long: he’s guaranteeing them $139 billion in government funds.
Sounds like a plan for state TV to us, and the usual Chicago-style quid pro quo payout to those who helped Obama get what he wants.
Of course the press won’t report on this — it’s the press that signed onto Obama to get all of this cash.
There IS NO free press in America anymore…Obama bought it.
Is MSNBC being rewarded for having backed Obama? That’s what Jim Pinkerton suggests. On this evening’s Fox News Watch, the columnist and New America Foundation fellow cited the news that GE Capital, a subsidiary of MSNBC’s parent company GE, has received a $139 billion government loan guarantee.
Host Jon Scott opened this evening’s show opened with a clip of Chris Matthews [in a story that NB was first to report], saying that he saw as his “job” making the Obama presidency a success. Pinkerton unloaded.
