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.
