National Geographic Channel Becomes Pro-Obama Super PAC

National Geographic Channel Becomes Pro-Obama Super PAC

by John Nolte 5 Oct 2012

Two days before the election, on Sunday November 4, the National Geographic Channel (Nat Geo) will broadcast amulti-million dollar, two hour pro-Obama campaign advertisement. For legal purposes and to avoid any messy entanglements with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), Nat Geo is disguising the two-hour pro-Obama ad as entertainment, specifically a film titled: “Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden.”

One of the companies behind the two-hour pro-Obama ad is The Weinstein Company, which is co-chaired by longtime Obama fundraiser Harvey Weinstein. Like Nat Geo, both The Weinstein Company and Mr. Weinstein have avoided any messy entanglements with the FEC by disguising their multi-million dollar in-kind contribution to Barack Obama's reelection campaign as "entertainment."

Harvey Weinstein

"Imagine if you will an alternate universe in a Twilight Zone where our media is not hopelessly corrupt and just as eager to hold Democrats accountable as Republicans."

"Harvey Weinstein being Harvey Weinstein is no surprise, nor is the corrupt media acting like the corrupt media."

"But the Nat Geo channel doing this, is, I must say, a real disappointment."

Lets get down to reality...the Nat’l Geographic channel is just another reality channel. They could thrown nine New York Yankee players on a charter fishing boat, and run a eight-episode season over the Yankees fishing out south of Florida and how they accidentally land in Cuba, and play some games in Havana. Some folks would watch it...only because it’s such a joke.

Liberal bias

“Liberal bias is partisan selection or distortion of information to support liberal policies.”

“In March 2010, liberal evolutionary magazine the National Geographic, postulated that liberals and atheists may be more evolved than conservatives, according to conclusions by Satoshi Kanazawa, an evolutionary psychologist. Kanazawa states “people with higher levels of intelligence are more likely to adopt social values and behaviors that are relatively new to human life—liberalism, atheism, staying up late, and (for men) monogamy, for example.” Kanazawa also defines liberalism, in part, as caring about the well-being of vast numbers of people you’ll never meet, and states that this “is a very new thing for humans.”

National Geographic denies politics influenced release of pro-Obama film before election

Posted By Gregg Re On 1:33 AM 10/06/2012 @ 1:33 AM In DC Exclusives,Featured,Politics

Despite National Geographic saying it is impartial, though, its content throughout recent years has heavily favored liberals. A poll released by National Geographic Channel earlier this year, for example, found that Obama is “better able to handle an alien onslaught than the Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney,” and a study cited by the National Geographic Magazine in 2010 claimed that “liberals and atheists are more highly evolved” than religious conservatives.

It's been so long that I cannot remember the source, but I've been aware of National Geographic's political orientation for years and have acted accordingly.

It’s not just Nat Geo, it seems that everything on direct TV is promoting that abominable democratic party anti-white male, anti-family, anti-Christian initiative.

TV is absolutely disgusting except for FOX and a FEW religious channels.

I just wish there was more of a public outcry and maybe 10k of us at once could protest and on cue start reducing out paid programming quotient. That way we can slowly escalate our protest and get our message across.

That’s a ping list I want to be on.

The “Gospel of Judas”: National Geographic Attacks Christianity With Biased “Research”

National Geographic Slave to Bias

National Geographic’s September 2003 article by Andrew Cockburn entitled “21st Century Slaves” fails to mention the world’s leading human-rights and slave-trafficking offender, Sudan, while unfairly highlighting with a double-page photograph Israel’s relatively insignificant prostitution rings.

Though forced prostitution in Israel is a grave problem, its scale compared to the extensive abuses elsewhere hardly merits the attention National Geographic gives it. By contrast, the omission of Sudan, a country that has enslaved and exploited an entire people in its southern region, is inexplicable.

One of the reasons that I am thankful that I have the ability to read is that I can read a book written by someone who was actually there when bin Laden was killed and not have to waste two hours watching a movie “based on a true story” that was made but a bunch of Obama’s Hollyweird fundraising buffoons.

74. National Geographic and paleontologists, (1999). Fell for hoax. Announced the discovery of Archaeoraptor at a press conference at the National Geographic Society. At the time, they called it a missing link between birds and dinosaurs. Later, the specimen was found to be a made-in-China fake combining the tail of a dinosaur with the body of a bird.

National Geographic Harps on ‘Intolerant Attitudes’ in Bible

By Matthew Balan | December 24, 2011 | 18:02

Adam Nicolson couldn’t resist inserting a blast at traditional sexual ethics into an article about the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible in the December 2011 issue of National Geographic magazine. Nicolson labeled the Book of Leviticus’s condemnation of homosexual acts a “troubling part of the King James inheritance: a ferocious and singular moral vision that has become unacceptable in most of the liberal, modern world.”

National Geographic Warns Global Warming Leads to Increased Violence... Possibly Even ‘Genocide’

By Anthony Kang | March 26, 2010 | 11:32

On March 24, Ker Than argued in National Geographic that “Global warming could make the world a more violent place, because higher temperatures increase human aggression and create volatile situations.”

Reporting on the findings of a new study released last week, Than repeated the study authors’ estimate of increase in violence as temperatures climb: “[I]f the average temperature in the U.S. increases by 8 degrees Fahrenheit, the country’s murder and assault rate will jump by about a hundred thousand cases a year.”

I grew up reading National Geographic Magazine and later watching their wonderful nature shows on TV. After noticing a Liberal bent in the magazine and TV programs about 18 years ago, I cancelled the magazine and quit watching their programs. Now, almost 20 years later, I still get notices in the mail from Nat’l Geo begging me to restart my subscription!

They did do that ~tough piece on the New Black Panther Party some years ago (likely well before Obama appeared on the scene), exposing them as a hate America group. I don't know if they revealed that they were/are communist. Or that they are advocates of communist "Black Liberation Theology" like Obama and his "spiritual adviser" Jeremiah Wright. I strongly doubt it.

Credit goes to the seals/intelligence for Bin Laden.

One question though.

Does anyone else think there wasn’t a shoot first order ?

I’m ok if thats the case, but just say so. Don’t give us this capture if possible
scenario.

It seems strange that the accounts indicate “ a man stuck his head out of a door”
and was shot.

No mention of weapons etc, unless I missed something.

I think most of our SWAT teams would then carefully enter the room, and decided to kill or capture based on what they saw then.

If that scenario ( head appears then shot )happened in any of our cities the MSM would be claiming police brutality from the get go.
