Obama's TV Network Lays Off 450
Rush Limbaugh ^ | November 13, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: "NBCUniversal is laying off about 450 people, or roughly 1.5 percent of its workforce of about 30,000, in a round of belt-tightening that began in September," and this is Obama's network. I mean, this network has been overrun by leftists. It has. Not just MSNBC.

I mean, the whole shootin' match has been taken over by the leftists. And I want to see now. You know, when John Schnatter of Papa John's says, "I gotta lay off some people or convert 'em to part time," and when the Applebee's guy does the same thing, they are hit on by leftist harassers! E-mail! Twitter! People are working up protests and anger against them. I want to see if these same leftists boycott their Hollywood buddies like they're saying boycott Papa John's and boycott Applebee's.

I wonder if Peyton Manning will tell John Schnatter to take a hike. I don't know how Manning votes on stuff, but once Manning hears that the company he's endorsing is gonna be cutting people's health care, who knows what's gonna happen out there? I don't know! Thirty years ago I coulda told you, but I don't know today. Folks, I'm the last guy to tell you what, quote/unquote, "any man" is gonna do or say in any situation. Thirty years ago, yeah, I coulda told you.

But as of now, I am clueless.

END TRANSCRIPT

NBCUniversal is laying off about 450 people

George Soros must have traded in his silent partnership in NBC.

I already started cancelled my account with comcast yesterday and told them it was because I found MSNBC commentators who stated how thankful they were that hurricane sandy happened and helped obama win the election extremely offensive

That’s true, so have I, but mostly because I really do not watch much TV except for hockey games, and they are in a lockout right now.

Comcast owns NBC Universal, their on-air, MSNBC personalities are reflective of their corporate leadership! Comcast is run by nuts!

I'm sure, whatever the decision will be, it'll be Bush's fault.

Good question.

Obama, of course, created 500 Trillion jobs in just the last 30 days.

I know the feeling.  I haven't watched network news since 9-11.  Their coverage was disgusting and I got rid of them and all newspapers.

Yep. When they were using the term "alleged-terrorists" a full 3 weeks after we were attacked, it was clear whose side they were on.

Peyton bought some pizza francises in Denver because he thinks it’s right to invest in the town he plays in.

IIRC, Peyton endorsed Romney. I know his $$$ has gone to Republicans in the past.
