Angry Crowd Slams Olbermann & MSNBC at GE Shareholders Meeting
GE Shareholders are sick and tired of of the Leftists and they’re not going to take it anymore!
There was plenty of criticism about GE’s media outlets at today’s meeting:
The crowd at today’s GE shareholder’s meeting attacked CEO Jeff Immelt over the embarrassing and offensive programs on MSNBC.
“The crowd was very upset with MSNBC because of its leftward tilt,” one attendee said. “Some former employees said they were embarrassed by it.”
One specific complaint about MSNBC concerned Keith Olbermann’s interview of actress Janeane Garofalo, who likened conservatives to racists and spoke of “the limbic brain inside a right-winger.”
“They were upset that Olbermann didn’t bother to challenge her,” one GE shareholder said.
Immelt said he takes a hands-off approach to what is reported on the company’s news networks, which prompted a shareholder to criticize him for not managing NBC Uni effectively.
“My biggest surprise was the open hostility to MSNBC,” another shareholder said. “It was noticeable and loud. I don’t remember any of this going on last year.”
One shareholder at the Orlando, Fla., meeting was Jesse Waters, a producer of “The O’Reilly Factor.” Waters asked a question at the meeting, then turned on the Fox News Channel cameras outside the venue and interviewed other shareholders who attended the meeting.
Great! Since Jesse Waters was there this ought to be on O’Reilly later this week.
UPDATE: FOX Nation has much more on the Immelt confrontation at the GE meeting.
