The nation’s largest manufacturer of wind turbines is General Electric (GE). GE also owns NBC, MSNBC, CNBC and other media. GE has been widely criticized for its “over the top” gushing support for Barack Obama. On Earth Day yesterday, President Obama went to an Iowa wind turbine manufacturing site.
Rick Santelli of CNBC is credited with starting the tea party movement with his angry anti-Obama on-air rant. After that was aired, he was spirited away for a meeting with GE suits. “They took me to a re-education camp,” he said.
All this week, NBC’s “Today Show” is in full gush supporting Obama — including using the environmentally pure green banner all over the morning show and website….
So there is the ugly feel of incest between GE, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC and President Obama and his Administration.
Happy Earth Day!
