$500k of Stimulus Went Straight to MSNBC

According to the Labor Department, nearly $500,000 of your tax money went to MSNBC for green-job promoting advertisements on both Olbermann and Maddow’s shows back in 2009 as part of the Stimulus.  These ads played 14 times a week for two months.  The Labor Department defends the expense, citing that the department delegated these kinds of expenditures.  CNN was left out, though.  Hmm.  Legal, but sloppy and certainly fishy.

In a total and complete coincidence, Obama’s “Jobs Czar” Jeff Immelt happens to be the CEO of General Electric — a company which happens to own NBC/MSNBC, ended up not paying taxes in 2010, outsources US jobs, and stands to make a killing on green tech (once it materializes, of course).

Nothing to see here.
