GE Shareholders Complain Against MSNBC's Leftwing Agitprop; Microphones Cut Off


Just before GE board members were re-elected, shareholders asked about 10 questions of a mostly political nature concerning the viewpoints of MSNBC and CNBC, according to attendees.

First up was a woman asking about a reported meeting in which Immelt and NBC Uni CEO Jeff Zucker supposedly told top CNBC executives and talent to be less critical of President Obama and his policies.

Immelt acknowledged a meeting took place but said no one at CNBC was told what to say or not say about politics.

During the woman's follow-up question, her microphone was cut off. Later, during the umpteenth question about MSNBC, another shareholder's microphone was cut, according to multiple attendees.

I'd boycott NBC but I don't watch a damn thing on it.*

* Okay, I watch The Office, but it's not a great show. I could dump it.

Via the Rhetorician.

Oh... And how is MSNBC's liberal lineup faring in the ratings?

Maddow's down 40%.

Although every network is liberal and biased, NBC is especially egregious. I would dearly love a real boycott -- not just of their shows, but every single advertiser who pays for their shows -- as an object lesson.

But these things never seem to work out.
