NBC News: “GE? Taxes? Who?”
For years, everybody with two brain cells to rub together has known — and has tried to get the message across — that our consolidated corporate-owned “media” companies are NOT reporting the news. But now it’s become so obvious that it’s finally moved beyond the endless “is not, is too” arguments.
The GE tax scandal has provided us with a 100-foot neon sign and a 200-decibel bullhorn. It’s too blatant, too in-your-face, for anyone to not see it and hear it. It’s not possible to stand waist deep in a vat of steaming shit and ask “Smell? Huh?”
When the New York Times reported that General Electric had paid zero income taxes, the story went viral. But for some odd reason, NBC — including that ultra-liberal socialist MSNBC — didn’t mention it. And that’s because:
General Electric (GE) owns NBC. You wouldn’t want to report something that might embarrass your boss, now, would you?
Get it now? Any questions?
As the saying goes: “Freedom of the press is limited to those who own one.”
