Congress to 'investigate' Obama WH to MSNBC Payola, to Olbermann and MaddowSubmitted by AnCapMercenary on Sat, 09/01/2012 - 22:22
Congress Investigates WH Taxpayer-Funded Payoffs to MSNBC’s Olbermann, Maddow
Stimulus funds allegedly directed at Obama’s worthless “green job” ads created zero jobs
September 1, 2012
Still unsure where all of the president’s $831 billion dollars in stimulus went?
So are a lot of Americans, including a House committee currently demanding records on half a million dollars in phony MSNBC ad buys the White House procured to promote job opportunities that did not exist.
The House Committee on Education and the Workforce wants to know what, if anything, came of the over 100 “green jobs” initiative commercials purchased through the 2009 contract that ran exclusively on Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann’s MSNBC programs. According to the Washington Times:
“Spending reports showed that no jobs were created through the contract. The Washington Times first reported on the contract earlier this month, quoting one taxpayer watchdog who questioned not only the lack of jobs but why the commercials aired only on MSNBC, considered the most liberal of the major cable news outlets.”
In light of the recent, somewhat fair-ish coverage of Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul and the R3VOLution, solely for the self-serving purpose of goading one of us and the Doctor onto her show, just a reminder of who Maddow REALLY is: http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/2335231
NEVER forget who the real enemies are, and what they're capable of.
Remember, beyond all her oft verbal softball platitudes tossed our way, Maddow is, and has always been the controlled opposition propagandist mouthpiece for the Military Industrial Complex, General Electric, the still 51% majority owner of MSNBC, even in post Comcast merger.
The same descriptor applies to Olbermann, of course, whether he's at GE, or at MSDNC reject central, aka Current TV, owned by the Big Oil corporatist oligarch, majority owner of Occidental Petroleum, Mr. Eco Nazi-in-Chief, Al "Man Bear" Gore.
