The GE-Obama Broadcast Network

Public television and radio have long been a province of the Left, which we taxpayers subsidize.  Now we have another network, long the bastion of liberal media bias, added to the current administration’s fold: NBC, particularly its cable affiliate MSNBC, which is owned by General Electric.  Let’s not forget that GE is a big recipient of taxpayer bail-out money and of lucrative government contracts.

As Bill O’Reilly reported last night, GE has been receiving government largesse while its Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey R. Immelt, is serving as an economic advisor to President Obama.  This is going on even as the independent regulatory agency, the Securities and Exchange Commission, has charged GE with fraudulent cooking of its books!

I am not concluding with certainty that there is a quid pro quo, where GE-owned networks praise Obama and endorse his programs in return for special favors from the President.

But is it mere coincidence that the Obama administration’s PR messages are regurgitated ad nauseum with sychophantic praise by the likes of such Obama lapdogs as Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and Andrea Mitchell — all MSNBC employees and ultimately accountable to the parent corporation, GE?

I think we are witnessing GE honchos unleashing their stable of leftist wolfhounds, in the hope that the parent company will continue to curry favor with the powers-that-be in Washington, D.C.  At the very least, there is an ethical issue regarding the conflict of interest between independent journalism and the corporate parent’s business interests.

Reportedly, News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch met with Immelt to try and smooth over the ongoing sparring between Fox News and MSNBC.  That’s not a good idea. Let the market decide the comparative quality, accuracy and professionalism of the respective networks. O’Reilly’s investigative reporting on GE’s conflict-of-interest should in no way be squelched.
