Your Hard Earned Tax Dollars at Work … US Labor Department Spends Stimulus Money for Ads During MSNBC Olbermann & Maddow Shows

 

Hmm … who knew that spending money for Obama ads on MSNBC by the US Department of Labor was a shovel ready job?

Shovel ready, the wasteful spending of the Obama stimulus fund appears to be more “propaganda” ready. Yup, your hard earned tax dollars down the tubes so that Barack Obama could promote and recruit young liberals for green jobs. But as stated by the Gateway Pundit, “the Obama administration said the decision to put the ads on MSNBC had nothing to do with politics.” Sure it didn’t. That’s why Obama would spend half a million dollars on green ads on a liberal network that no one watches. The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009.  Gee, and we thought these liberal hacks did Obama’s bidding for free.

The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two MSNBC cable shows, records show.

The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009, but the contract didn’t report any jobs created, according to records reviewed recently by The Washington Times.

Spending reports under the federal Recovery Act show $495,000 paid to McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC, which the Labor Department hired to raise awareness “among employers and influencers about the [Job Corps] program’s existing and new training initiatives in high growth and environmentally friendly career areas” as well as spreading the word to prospective Job Corps enrollees.

No liberal media bias here and quid pro quo.

      firm is not the infamous Francis Fox Piven pinko
      babe.

      Of course Barry is going to use the stimulus money to help his buddies. That is the way socialists always do things. The mistake was made by congress to ever pass such a bill.
