A House panel is calling on the U.S. Department of Labor to turn over all records involving a half-million dollar contract funded through President Obamas $831 billion stimulus program that paid for more than 100 commercials on MSNBC touting a green jobs initiative.

So that’s how they stayed on the air.
Any one that has been insulted by any of the aholes on MSNBC needs to stay on this one

They aren’t even bothering with the pretense of journalism now.
It’s not just money - Dem PR Firms like the one James Carville runs - give them all the information and background needed to bash Republicans - without them having to have two brain cells to rub together.
Must be nice to be a ‘journalist’ when all that’s needed is the right names in the little black book. Oh, and there’s the fake effort to ‘understand’ that these people have their own agendas - and to pretend to take that into account. Most liberal journalists are stenographers ... two bit phonies feeding off dem PR firms.
I freaking knew it! I knew there had to be a payoff somewhere. But that would require some investigative reporting which apparently has just now gotten done.
Explains A LOT.
There had to be a FOX in the hen house
Time to frog march Immelt and Roberts.
Film at 11 (on FOX).
