‘NBC Nightly News’ ignores GE tax controversy

Washington Post
“NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams” has yet to mention that General Electric — America’s largest corporation and one of NBC’s parent companies — essentially avoided paying federal taxes in 2010. An NBC spokeswoman says ignoring the story “was a straightforward editorial decision, the kind we make daily around here,” but to others, “NBC’s silence looks like something between a lapse and a coverup,” writes Paul Farhi. || TVSquad.com: Jon Stewart calls out NBC for not reporting GE’s $0 tax bill.

    Compromised shills. Who would actually put any credence into what this network reports? I saw B. Williams toasting at an Oh-So-Hoidy-Toidy event on Martha’s Vineyard last year. A man of the people, to be sure. What a joke.
