Mote, Eye, Plank, Whatever, Vol. 2

Recall all the pissing and moaning from MSNBC over the "coordination" between Fox News and the TeaParty people. Well, Jonah Goldberg nails the NBC family for their activism for a political agenda.

"I think that there's a perfectly legitimate criticism against Fox for not so much the coverage, but the commercials, you know - promoting the coverage, which was in effect advertisements for these things," Goldberg explained. "But, this was all transparent, people knew that's Fox was doing. But let's flashback to what GE, to pick up a point that Jim [Pinkerton] made - that GE basically issued a fatwa to NBC for Green Week, where they did hundreds of hours of environmental messaging in all of their dramas, news coverage, "Today" show - throughout the network and it was all hailed as a wonderful progressive thing. That is a much more pernicious promotion than anything Fox did."

Not only that, but Jim Pinkerton reminds us that the parent company of (MS)(C)NBC is General Electric, who received TARP Bailout money. Needless to say, GE figured they better go hog wild after critics of the people giving them money.
