Entrenched Liberal Bias At NBC? I’m SHOCKED…. SHOCKED.

I mentioned, the other day, about how the NBC lawyer who rejected that “thank you to the troops” video, turns out to be rather generous source of donations for congressional Democrats.  Here’s the article I wanted to link to edit the time, but couldn’t find. It’s over at Red State. [1]

2nbc.jpg [2]The Majority Accountability Project [3] has found that the NBC lawyer who refused to allow a non-profit group to air an advertisement thanking American troops for their service has donated at least $45,000 to a host of Congressional Democrats, [4]including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, New York Senator Hillary Clinton and the campaign committees of House and Senate Democrats.

According to a Fox News report [5], Richard Cotton, the general counsel for NBC/Universal, was one of two network officials who decided not to sell ad time to Freedom’s Watch [6], which describes itself as “a nonpartisan movement dedicated to preserving, protecting, and defending conservative principles and promoting a conservative agenda.”

Freedom’s Watch prepared a series of television ads thanking American troops stationed abroad for “their service and for spending time away from their family and friends this Holiday season.” The ads will run from December 6 until December 21, and while CNN and Fox are both airing the group’s commercials, NBC refused to sell airtime on their cable networks, MSNBC and CNBC.

So what we have, here, is an entrenchment of liberalism exposed at NBC.  Boy, the cockroaches were headed for the walls when the light came on this time, weren’t they?  But watch this:

 

Ironically, it was one of NBC’s networks, MSNBC, that earlier this year created a stir when they detailed the political giving of journalists [7] and news organizations.

“Because appearing to be fair is part of being fair, most mainstream news organizations discourage marching for causes, displaying political bumper stickers or giving cash to candidates,” the cable news station reported.

I’m shocked… shocked, I tell you, to find liberal bias here.

Michelle [9] is doing a good job of keeping up with this one, including several possibilities for a new NBC logo sent along by readers…. one of which is above.
