Aren't Joe and Mika members of AFTRA? That's the union of the American Federation of
Television and Radio Artists. I would hope that cable is not exempt from this requirement.

If they are not, well too bad for them. But if they are, they should be quite ashamed of their anti-union stand.

4. Isn't it wonderful and ironic? They rake in from union benefits and then bash unions.
Classy, isn't it?

for the rest of America.

And tell me why GE/MSNBC/CNBC/Universal allows "Conflict of Interest" Reporting? Mika whose father worked for Carter and who seems to have the "rebel child syndrome" and Andrea Mitchell (MSNBC STAR) whose husband caused much of the disaster we are now living with and Joe Scarborough (the Repug who should have an an "Inquiry" like Gary Condit} over that dead Intern, and Pat Buchanan (the Holocaust Denier who never thought Blacks should achieve anything) and MSNBC/CNBC/GE's trail of "Pudits and Correspondents" who talk a Repug Line while only allowing three shows on their cable access to counter the Repugs: "Big Ed" (New), Olbermann (Sports) and Maddow (GLBT and Left). Meanwhile throughout the day GE Cables TRASH any voices Left of Right and work to undermine anything that's PROGRESSIVE!

But, remember...Jeff Immelt is a BIG "FOO"...(Friend of Obama) as opposed to the "FOB" (Friends of Bill) Clinton.

What has changed? and there's even more about GE/MSNBC/CNBC/NBC CONNECTIONS of NEPOTISM that would make this post too long and no one reads much on DU these days after the Subject Line ...so why bother. Google the shit Cable yourself...and when you finish check out the folks who are on CNN and the Pundits and Hangers On who get money on the WAR CHANNEL if you really want to get DEPRESSED...

I don't want folks to get more depressed ...so just check out the first bits I posted about GE/MSNBC/CNBC/NBC/Universal.

It's just "BIDNESS" as "USUAL." *Cough, Cough* ...GAG!!!!

9. Maybe what you should say is that "Fox is Honest RW" and "MSNBC" is PRETEND/PANDER
as it was under Clinton where Geraldo and othe sychophants like Lanny Davis and others went against the Ken Starr Group of lawyers and MSNBC maid their name on that.

Remember that old expression: "I wouldn't trust that guy as far as I could throw him?"

It's old...but like many old expressions that folks don't want to hear these days...it's simple but has some room for further though. "Don't trust anyone as far as you can throw them." I feel that MSNBC/GE always know "how far" they can be thrown...and their power is endless and works on both sides against the middle.
