    Apparently employees and shareholders of GE are sick of the left wing bias on MSNBC and spoke out...only to have the wonderful people of "tolerance" cut their mic's off.. Typical leftiods that just love free speech...not.

    Snip

    Attendees who spoke to THR said shareholders asked about 10 politically charged questions concerning MSNBC as well as one about CNBC.

    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 to say about politics.

    During the woman's follow-up question, her microphone was apparently cut off. A short time later, Waters asked a question and his mic was cut, too.

    "The crowd was very upset with MSNBC because of its leftward tilt," one attendee said. "Some former employees said they were embarrassed by it."

    So the right leaning/biased news station sends a guy to ambush the left leaning/biased new station.

    For those interested in getting a better idea of what went down but are too lazy to click the link and read the article here's the part that was conveniently snipped out of the OP:

    How is that convienient? I posted the link for you to read didn't I. Are you saying the shareholders only took issue with the bias of MSNBC because a gasp..FOX producer was in attendance? Or that their Mic's were not cut by GE?

    It convenient because it cuts out a big reason why all that "drama" went down. And I'm not saying that at all. I'm sure that some of the shareholder's took issue on their own and I don't doubt that their mics were cut but in this case IMO where there's smoke there's fire and if Water's is anything it's a big cloud of hot, dusty air.

    This whole "story" is nothing but one biased news organization attacking another biased news organization.

    :eusa_boohoo:Sounds like the poor Conservative babies tried to speak out on a forum where they weren't welcome. If the reverse was to happen, the Fox people would cut the mics just as quick.

    That's what he said. It's either Fox's fault or it Boosh's fault.. That's all they have in their arsenal as of now.
