Owners … Stock Shareholders of GE Asking Critical Questions Get Their Mics Turned Off


Question to GE top execs, Immelt and Zucker, who owns GE? The answer is the stockholders and you might want to remember that! If you own GE stock you are already pretty much toast. However, an interesting thing happened during GE’s annual shareholders meeting attendees apparently were very upset with the increasing leftward tilt of MSNBC. For those who do not know or deny their is a liberal bias, maybe the fact that they cut off people’s microphones who where critical of of the company will answer that question. Taking away the voice of the shareholders … nice job GE. According to this report, some people who were critical of GE’s policies had their microphones cut off. As Reuters referred to it, Political drama at GE shareholders meeting. Hell, who needs liberal bias at MSNBC when you can get it at Reuters? Did anyone think that maybe individuals who work for Fox News might be GE stockholders.

But one of those questions came from Jesse Waters, a producer on “The O’Reilly Factor” whose criticisms were cut short when his microphone was cut off, according to several attendees. Waters apparently did not publicly identify himself as a Fox employee. Waters has built a reputation as an ambush interviewer, specializing in on-the-street confrontations. But this is arguably the boldest move by a Fox newsperson to use the tactic inside their chief rival’s tent, as it were.

Think this will not be a report on Bill O’Reilly tonight?

Watch the VIDEO of confrontation when Factor” producer, a GE shareholder, Jesse Watters asks a simple question regarding ugly comments by Janeane Garofalo on MSNBC. Pay close attention to the reaction to Watters question and Immelt’s response.

      Russia had a physical wall to control it’s slaves.
      America is being subjected to information/dissent
      control by the media wall. GE is attempting to do
      the same with microphone control. Freedom of
      communication, movement, expression, enterprise,
      religion, choice, dissent, etc., are all being interfered-
      within this new administration. Remember the
      Constitution and the Bill of Rights?

      What amount of your own money are you willing
      to accept to sell your FREEDOM to the Government?

      I remember my first TV set was a GE. On the day after the warranty ran out(91) it broke.
      The microphone was probably made by GE? :-)

      The stockholders have no control. The GE board will just issue themselves more stock to keep the Shareholders down.

      I stopped watching MSNBC when Abrams was removed.
      He was a liberal Democrat. Obamacrats, and Socialists only.

      Im just curious….

      Why is it OK for Fox to be right wing, but not ok for msnbc to be left wing?
      SM: Actually it was documented that Fox had the more balanced coverage during the election.

      2. If you are going to compare the actual coverage, you need to have your head examied.

      3. MSNBC never and I repeat never has an opposing point of view of someone who is from the right. John McCain is hardly a Conservative.

      4. From the point of view of the shareholders this has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with ratings and ad $’s. MSNBC has always been the bastard child of cable news.

      #3 – What does Right or Left have to do with freedom of speech being impeded in this country by an authoritarian govenrment?

      SM – You are correct. McCain is not a Conservative. He is a Democrat and Conservative in name only. That is why he would not mention Sarah Palin as a good candidate for the 2012 election on The Tonight Show. BECAUSE HE KNOWS SHE CAN WIN.

      Time for people to pull their money and let GE sink, hand-in-bankrupt-hand with GM. Think of your families first. Put your money where it is safe. See this for more detail – http://www.moneyandmarkets.com

      PS – And no, I do not work for these people, but I have recieved their newsletter for the past 6 years now and they have NEVER been wrong.

      First of all…>SM

      FOX NEWS is VERY RIGHT WING.I hope that even you can see that.Cavuto-Beck-O’Reilly-Hannity just to name a few.Plus all their “contributors”like Coulter and Malkin,It is the oppositions network.Murdoch even said that.Dont believe your own lies.They are not fair and balanced.That is just a slogan.They were the most balanced?Documented by who?Them????/?MSNBC has Joe Scarborough(R-FL) —he is a Republican–Sure he is not a wingnut like you and Rush, but he did serve the party in the House….I will say that FoxNews has Shep Smith, but he is more of an actual journalist and his show is not opinion driven like the rest of their shows….So do not feel threatened by MSNBC.The right has Fox News that gets ridiculous ratings and the left has MSNBC.No big deal……..And dream on that Palin has a chance–are you kidding me???PLEASE !I hope the rest of republicans think like you so that they will nominate her 2012 and you get your butt kicked worse than you did in 08……

      #7: “Sure he is not a wingnut like ‘you’ and Rush”

      Who the hell are you addressing?

      just like all the dumpocrats, jason has to fly into a childish rage when someone disagrees with the osama bin biden gang.
      we all know that without the media’s help obama would not have gotten past the first primary. all they can do is point fingers at the previous administration and play the blame game. jason seems to not be smart enough to realize that every opponent of the dumpocrats are not republican.
