Comcasts upcoming shareholders meeting in Philadelphia may see a bit of a disruption. A Tea Party group has sent out 60,000 invitations in an effort to plan a protest at the meeting, specifically expressing dissatisfaction with the conglomerates forward-leaning cable network MSNBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As the report notes, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts is scheduled to meet with investors on May 15 at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts Perelman Theater. The protestors plan to accuse him of engaging in liberal propaganda instead of news at MSNBC. Currently, the effort appears to be in Stage 1″ as 60,000 invitations have gone out to Tea Partiers in the area.
Tom and Deneen Borelli (the latter is a Fox News contributor) are said to be among the organizers. They have a habit of showing up at shareholders meetings for a variety of companies they own stock in and asking CEOs pointed questions relating to their commitment to free markets and capitalism, THR explained.
The invitations that went out specifically including a jab at MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, who recently triggered controversy with a promo for the network in which she spoke about children belonging to communities.
If youve been waiting to tell MSNBC boss Brian Roberts, that the government doesnt own your kids, like they claimed in a recent commercial, it says, now is your chance!

Why would the TP lower itself to libtard standards?
I am reminded of when Greeks broke into that media station and threw yoghurt at the presenter. Imagine Maddow getting egged. haha
If anything MSNBC is to our benefit. Some people might actually see how stupid liberals really are.
Since 2006, Roberts made more than $76,000 in political contributions to Democrats and $13,500 in contributions to Republicans.
In December 2009, he wrote a letter to President Barack Obama endorsing his Affordable Care Act.
He was named to President Obama’s Jobs and Competitiveness in February, 2011.
Comcasts Brian Roberts Made $29.1M In 2012, +8.1%
NBCUniversal has its woes, but Comcast execs have little reason to complain about their personal incomes for 2012.
So the CEO makes $10 Million per viewer?
When you fire Imus for supposedly being a racist but hire Al Sharpton who actually is a racist and who is a fool, you pretty much prove you have a huge problem with leadership and common sense. Who wants to watch that?
Stoopit. I worked for Brian and he’s a good man.
It takes time to turn these properties around.
This was done once before in 2009 at a GE meeting.
If they are going to do the Code Pink! make-a-scene antics, then yes, I'd agree with you - why lower yourself to those standards.
Bout time we start playing by their own “rules”. Being nicey nicer hasn’t done us a hell of a lot of good now, has it! Time to start getting in these bastards’ faces!
Because we are losing our country. We must do whatever works.
Amen. Time to take these assholes to the wood shed.
OK. So a Tea Party demonstration will give him ammunition to tell his editorial staff and stockholders that there’s a perception of bias in their current programming.
Time we adopted the tactics of the Left. Mau-Mauing seems to work for them, why not us?
Protesting and counter protesting are time-honored traditions.
The Left does not own them.
You got THAT right!!!
Why would the TP protest MSNBC an almost non existent cable station...?
Sounds an libtard astroturf event set up to discredit the TP...
