Connecting the dots: GE, Immelt, MSNBC, Economic Advisory Board

In line with my previous post, GE Shareholders Complain About MSNBC’s Left-leaning Bias and General Electric Company’s CEO, Jeffrey Immelt.

How did I miss this?

Jeffrey Immelt is serving on President Obama’s Economic Advisory Board.

So…..

  • GE is the parent company of MSNBC.
  • MSNBC for all practical purposes acted as an arm of the Obama campaign.
  • MSNBC continues with their biased coverage as of today, and I say today because I was just watching it, sort of like you would expect a PR firm to do.

But here’s the story in a Florida newspaper from February, 2009 that I just ran across while searching around on GE and Immelt:

“”The chief executive of General Electric Co. thinks President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus efforts will pay off eventually in fighting the recession.

CEO Jeffrey Immelt also says he sees some signs that things are stabilizing in a difficult economy. He told The Cincinnati Enquirer in an interview published Wednesday that his sense is that over time, Obama’s programs “will work.”

Immelt is on Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, meant to provide outside-the-Beltway input to the president.””

And this, more recently, from April 8, 2009:

“”The chief executive of General Electric Co. thinks President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus efforts will pay off eventually in fighting the recession.

CEO Jeffrey Immelt also says he sees some signs that things are stabilizing in a difficult economy. He told The Cincinnati Enquirer in an interview published Wednesday that his sense is that over time, Obama’s programs “will work.”

Immelt is on Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, meant to provide outside-the-Beltway input to the president.””

And don’t forget about the bailouts. Here and Here.

Do you think there’s a teeny, tiny little conflict of interest here?

I really think it’s the biggest heist in history.  Or – there’s more than one way to rob a bank.

    Nancy Pelosi said she would bring up cap and trade again if it passes, and Obama awards the contracts to GE, that’s all she wrote, they all get to go down. That’s our tax payer money, there are laws.

    Campaign finance law for one the way MSNBC and NBC carried Obama’s water through the campaign ect…this one will make a lot of lawyers really rich 🙂 There is no way around that tax payer money would have been used to get Obama elected because of quid pro quo. That’s not legal.

    Great video, Jerry. Thanks for the link.

    So many things recently, I hear them, I see them, and part of me just really can’t believe it. So outlandish as to make you think it must be a comedy act or a spoof. But guess what? It’s all for real.

    Unbelievable. Americans Wake Up! But they are waking up, slowly but surely, the silent majority is speaking. Yeah, that’s right, “majority.”
