Why is NBComcast giving Donald Trump so much coverage
when they know the birther rubbish is undiluted fuckery.

Then they'll do polls to see what people think about this fucking stupid lie.

:puke:

1. Because he has a show on NBC
and there is no such thing as bad publicity.

2. WSJ/NBC Poll: A Donald Trump Surprise
http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2011/04/06/wsjnbc-poll-a-... /

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney appears to be the early front-runner in the largely unformed race for the Republican nomination for president, but real estate magnate Donald Trump may be a surprise contender, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

Among Republican primary voters, Mr. Romney captured the support of 21% in a broad, nine-candidate field. Mr. Trump was tied for second with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, with 17%. House Speaker Newt Gingrich got 11%, just ahead of former Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palins 10%. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, considered a strong contender by political handicappers, remains largely unknown, with just 6% support. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota had 5%, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum 3%, and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour with just 1%.

4. same reason why, during sweeps month,
the local news stations suddenly realize that there are prostitutes in the hotels near airports, and that "something in your food can kill you" ...

ratings reflect the populations love of watching a train wreck and slowing down to count the bodies in the accident on the freeway ...

7. Because he has a show that airs on...yep, NBC.
That's what all this "running for president" nonsense is: publicity. Any show he goes on will mention that he is currently doing "The Apprentice."

8. They think he's good for business.
All they care about is their bottom line.

Trump is a small-mouthed, full-blown NUTTER.

12. Have you noticed they rerun an earlier segment...
every day for 15 minutes? This is the second time today he is on. They can't even have a live show for the full 3 hours anymore.

13. It's All One Cynical PR Stunt
To answer your question...Trump's an "employee" of NBComcrap...the higher the ratings the more money they all make.

This is and has been a stunt...similar to when Trump tried to run as a Democrat in '08. The difference is Democrats never took him seriously, while his birther shit has hooked a lot of the great unhinged. Trump knows a fish or a whole ocean of 'em when he sees 'em. The fact that he's polling above some "legitimate" candidates shows how weak and lame the entire party really is.

The birther game has nothing to do with fact...Rachel nailed it a couple weeks back. This is purely a PR stunt...Trump has a massive ego but its too big for the mundane shit of actually running. His big prize is big ratings for his waste of a teevee show and if he can lure in the great unhinged, it's all ratings to him.

:hi:

15. one hand washes the other
Cable "news" is just one big ole infomercial.. they highlight & invite guests according to their position in the corporate hierarchy..

The affiliated businesses..publishers..newspapers..magazine editors..bloggers, etc tend to be all part of the same big "family"..
