NBC: It’s Not News If It Makes GE Look Bad!


Ah, the journalistic integrity of NBC News. News is, of course, used extremely loosely by NBC. If it is something bad about them or their parent company General Electric, no one need know about it. We probably wouldn’t understand the “nuance” anyway, right Brian Williams?

“If people in your audience are savvy enough to raise the question of why you’re covering your own parent company differently than another company,” she said, “then it doesn’t matter what the answer is. You’ve undermined your credibility. The problem for any news organization is death by a thousand daggers.”

Um. I think those thousand daggers have done their job already.

UPDATE: Ed Driscoll makes a very good point about NBC’s outspoken desire for *others* to pay more in taxes.
