NBC tells Obama not to use footage
By DYLAN BYERS | 10/6/12 1:47 PM EDT

**SNIP**

In a letter sent Friday night to Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, NBC told the Obama campaign to cease using network footage in a new 30-second spot, released shortly after Wednesday’s debate, in which Andrea Mitchell is shown on air citing an independent, stating that Mitt Romney’s tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years, a source said.

**SNIP**

“NBC News has not granted any campaign permission to use our news material. As is our practice, we have requested that the Obama campaign refrain from using NBC News material in this and future advertisements,” the network said in a statement.

They’re scrambling like the Rats they are, folks. I think we’ll see much more of this CYA action, as the Omedia tries
to look “unbiased”. Their ship is sinking. What a joke!

They want to prevent RR from using their materials, and one way to do so is to tell both campaigns not using anything from them.

It's a distraction....We need to watch what the other hand is doing...like registering dead people, passing out phones, cheating all over the place.

Bottom line....Obama has no message and the last 3.5 years have been hell....

Their “news footage” is one big campaign commercial for the Dems, regardless of whether the Dems use them in their own commercials. They are pretending to appear neutral.

Wouldn’t such use be covered by the fair use doctrine? They don’t have a legal right to stop the O. campaign from using it do they?

The tide isn’t turning. The National Barack Channel needs to keep up the ruse of being an objective news source for a month. You can bet that Andrea Mitchell was thrilled. Basically, all they’re doing is stringing together sound bytes for Obama ads.

NBC growing an ethics bone? Bull cookies. They are the pretentious, slobbering propaganda arm of the DNC and a tax write-off for GE. Just another tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

"They are pretending to appear neutral."

The NY Times cable TV ad currently running shows a copy of the paper with a picture of Obama and the headline "Economy Improves".

The MSM is evil, not only because of what they do but because they claim a profession and history that is counter to what they do.

NBC brass and legal team don’t have the sense to be embarrassed that their reporters and on-air talent would say things on the air that could be used in a positive manner by Obama in an ad.

It was on this morning around 5:15 am, right in the middle of the chris matthews show.

Even more interesting was the ad that followed, apparently msnbc has a new slogan....."Leaning Forward".

That is amazingly close to the obama campaign slogan, Forward. I find that more damning then a clip of andrea mitchell- greenspan.

I hope not.... but we will see if they are up to the task of unwinding all the liberal bias put in place by GEs ownership.

I’m assuming that someday folks over there want to start making money.

in which Andrea Mitchell is shown on air citing an independent, stating that Mitt Romney’s tax plan

Nice shot, Politco. Citing an "independent" what? Why not just call it for what it was? The Obama campaign and most if not all of the major news organizations, to include the one Andrea Mitchell is working for, are quoting a bogus, completely made up source and are making it sound legit.

NBC took a week to issue this cease and desist?

The Republicans need to threaten the MSM to quit being so incredibly biased and partisan.

The only effective threat the Republicans can make to the media is to restore the FCC’s Broadcast Ownership Rules (1975).

“FCC rules banned cross-ownership by a single entity of a daily newspaper and television or radio broadcast station operating in the same local market.”

However, congress could update and expand on this to include the Internet, book and magazine publishing, movies and theaters, etc. Importantly, they could do so only if the entity owned a broadcast system, so was under the jurisdiction of the FCC. They should especially include network providers.

In effect, this would bust up the “big six” media companies in the US: NBCUniversal (Comcast /GE), The Walt Disney Company, News Corporation, Time Warner, Viacom, and CBS Corporation.

They could broadcast anything they wanted to say under FCC jurisdiction, but they could do monopolize all media, as they do today.

This goes beyond politics, because these media companies are effectively stifling free speech in all things, wiping out independent book, newspaper and magazine publishers, which are replaced with generic crap and computer generated news. Books that are just mulch, containing little that is original or intelligent.

Pick up most newspapers in the US today, and you will read almost identical stories put out by the wire services. Sterile, useless things.

I really think the marketplace is starting to take care of the established and biased media for us.

Most major newspapers are going out of business. The networks are losing viewers by the millions each year. Most people under the age of 25 have no idea what “Time” and “Newsweek” are.

What I would like to see changed is we do need another conservative cable network to compete with Fox. Someone has to step up and invest the money there.

Or to be embarrased that their “talent” are so factually incorrect — “independent study?” It used to be that a news organization could take the 5 seconds needed to verify that the Romney campaign never called for a 5 trillion tax cut. Now they pretend there’s some “independent study” that says otherwise.

See here’s the problem:

There are those in the GOP who have been exporting American jobs. And many on the left as well.

As many as they can. As fast as they can.

That is a BIG problem. As more and more Americans lose jobs, more and more Americans become dependent upon government.

We must bring back American jobs. Not (talk) about it, but do it right now.

By next election may already be too late.
