    • The Dualistic Mistake For Controlling Consciousness
      I remember fairly clearly the day when, trying to choose what to read in a bookstore, I realized that what I was choosing is who would control my consciousness; my mind, for a couple hours. It wasn’t a thought I’d never had before; after all when we watch TV or a movie, or read a book, we want our consciousness to be changed for a while, but “I’m letting the […]

Disdain, part deux: How NBC finally got busted as the Faux News of the Obama Campaign

To add to Gary’s post about Obama’s disdain for free speech below, NBC lost whatever credibility they had left: 

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama‘s campaign has bought $5 million worth of advertising time from NBC Universal to run TV spots during the Olympic Games, a source familiar with the deal said on Wednesday.

The package, believed to be an unprecedented political media buy for the Olympics, includes commercials that will run on the NBC network and cable channels such as USA, MSNBC and CNBC during the August broadcast of the Summer Games, the source said.

Both NBC and Obama’s campaign declined to comment.

That payoff was sure sweet, especially for the fellatio work on MSNBC.  I wonder how much were the bonuses Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann got for getting on their knees without kneepads for 6 months?    

But wait, there’s more!  The “former media darling” John McCain noticed something in the milk wasn’t clean with all this Obama love.  (Note:  I do not endorse or will endorse John McCain as president, I just think this video is TOO AWESOMELY “good to be true”): 

UPDATE: Pat Johnson & Carol Diamonds, your sugarbear Ed Rendell is in this clip!

Is this how the NBC/Obama/GE love marathon went down? :  You scratch my back a little by saying I am the second coming of JFK & MLK, Jr., and I scratch you $5 million dollars for your Olympics.  Then you continue to scratch my “Obama is a God”  message and I’ll scratch you some love by giving you full and unlimited permission to build nuclear plants EVERYWHERE once I become the Galactic Emperor. < /snark >

So, NBC/Universal = MSNBC = GE = Nuclear Plant Builders = Exceleon Energy = David Axelrod = Obama.

It’s no surprise that backroom dealing was de riguer in the NBC/GE boardrooms, that 99.9% of NBC news personalities (and notice I did not call them “anchors or journalists”) were just overly and unobjectively FAWNING over the Precious.  With this $5 million dollar ad buy, this is further proof Obama has bought the campaign and has ZERO interest in keeping the tenets of “free press” and “Democracy.”  

There is an “ism” word that begins with an F that describes this very thing.  Mussolini would be proud.

PUMA all the way to Denver!

  1. There is an “ism” word that begins with an F that describes this very thing. Mussolini would be proud.

    Wait, wait, don’t tell me….;-)

    Excellent, excellent post. Thank you for highlighting this!

    And I love the video. Too bad Al Gore didn’t have McCain’s ad shop, or we might be in the twilight days of Big Al’s second term….sigggggghhhhhhhh…..

  2. So, NBC/Universal = MSNBC = GE = Nuclear Plant Builders = Exceleon Energy = David Axelrod = Obama.

    Don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that formula. Disgusting, disgusting, disgusting.

  3. I guess I won’t be watching much of the Olympics

  4. Delphyne – You wanna know something else?

    AT&T is a huuuuuuge client of Axelrove’s.

    Still wondering why Obama voted for telecom immunity?

    Yeah, me either.

  5. Chris Matthews us disgusting. How can his wife sleep in the same bed with him at night?

  6. Wow! I guess you can buy the Presidency, or at least try real hard to buy it. Thank you for a very informative post.

  7. DVoter: who says she does?

  8. DisenfranchisedVoter,
    “Chris Matthews us disgusting. How can his wife sleep in the same bed with him at night?”
    The tingling leg is better than a marital aid?

  9. I just assumed but Chris probably spends his nights masturbating to tapes of Obama’s speeches in his basement.

  10. Dvoter: Well, he did say he didn’t get that tingle up his leg very often….

  11. You have to pity McCain. His most effective & truthful ad would be a comparison of Obama to Bush/Cheney, revealing Obama as a Bushie.

    But the Repubs would never forgive him, so he can’t use it.



  13. parentofed – Oh my Gawd, you are so right!

    That “Both Ways Barack” ad is pretty good, though.

    But I think after the Convention, should Obama be nominated, McCain will go after The One’s hubris. He’ll let the 527’s play Wright, Meeks and Pfleger 24-7.

    It will be quite effective.

  14. And in working for their supper see how NBC/WaPo is cooking their polls
    by applying the Nader effect to the other side

  15. madamab: as others have pointed out, it’s not swiftboating if it’s the truth.

    I think Americans are a little smarter than the Democrats think this year. I don’t think this big ol hoopla of a tour is going to mean jackshit to them. Cartoon in my local paper yesterday: 2 soldiers in full gear, one holds a newspaper that says ‘Obama Comes to Iraq,’ the other soldier says, “I’ve already been to Iraq 4 times.”

    Exactly. This hoopla is so 1980s.

  16. pofE: Well, according to Rasmussen, 63% of people do not think this trip made him any more qualified to lead the nation.


  17. creeps, creeps, creeps!

    PUMA$ Who Donate Rule!

  18. Guess the Olympics convey that Obama image he so wants to cultivate – young, healthy, active, man of the world. The Chinese will be doing their best to hide sweatshops, pollution, dissent. They do share some mind-think there.

  19. SM: You continue to impress!

  20. Wasn’t Obama calling on Bush to boycott the opening games? Bothways Barack strikes again.

  21. Please forgive me for being off topic and posting old news but just read this again before sending it to a colleague who is not terribly updated on what is happening in your neck of the woods (thinks O is It, when It’s naught..) . Andrew Stephen’s article, two months old, still deserves a read and can inspire even more protest and action. Keep up the good work,
    foreign lurker



  23. Keep emailing Superdelegates.

  24. Francisca08 – THANK YOU. The article is truly outstanding. I feel like the media in America has been taken over by pod people. This is the best article I’ve ever read about the sexism and false charges of racism directed at Hillary.

    Thank you so much!

  25. Is anyone going to really watch the Olympics?

  26. Puma-SF,
    “Is anyone going to really watch the Olympics?”

    Not anymore.
    Guess I’ll just have to miss the 10k water polo dressage.

  27. Mainstream media is totally irresponsible. Pride comes before the fall.

  28. Dear madamab,
    My thanks to you and Rivedaughter and all the others on this website who do such a wonderful job of persuading me there are still sane people on this planet. Really afraid of what ‘s happening in the most powerful nation on earth. Seen from my continent (Europe) it’s like a horror movie rerun. I do so appreciate what you’re doing. My warmest thoughts to you all

  29. I will watch the olympics but put ads on mute when that BO appears….

  30. Kudos to the McCain campaign for mocking and exposing the lack of professionalism by American journalists with this video.

  31. madamab: THANK YOU!

    Pat: thank you too! Did you see your sugar bear Ed Rendell in that video talking about MSNBC??? Gotta love him, even if he’s a hound.

    The only thing that I like to watch is the opening when the countries come in and there’s a big floor show – but knowing this, will Obama appear magically in the middle of the Olympic torch flame?

    If Steven Speilberg can boycott the Beijing Olympics, so will I!!!

  32. Just heard Chris Matthews talking about how close the McCain/Obama poll numbers are- Bob Herbert said he thinks John McCain’s numbers are higher than they are polling- Matthews said: “I’m afraid of that too” Can Chrissy put his Obama pin on now?

  33. Francisca08: Thanks for the vid link. I read it back in May, and had forgotten how well-written it was. It’s all so sad, especially when you read the vile comments, so typical of the Obots.

    The media have gotten too big for their britches, and a come-down is inevitable, but we can’t go back to that place in time & prevent the hate. I only hope the fall happens in time to save a Hillary nomination in August.

  34. Veritas,

    Something made me drop by dKos and The Great Blogger had a post about the polls.

    I couldn’t stop myself from making this comment:

    He’s doing pretty well (0 / 0)

    For a guy who’s never held a full time job before.

    I’m sure it’s been disappeared by now….

  35. Matthews said, “I’m afraid of that too…”

    holy shittin jeebus, just when you think these people have surely gotten smarter, they trip you down.

  36. Katiebird: heh, I bet you flew in & out of there real fast….

  37. Katiebird, you just love to stir up that hive! (love you for it!)

  38. No, I posted a reply to a couple of guys. An earlier comment has been hidden. I just think the time has come to get banned once and for all.

  39. SM, it’s actually the first day I’ve been there since February. I don’t know why I decided to get banned today. I guess just to see how long it will take.

  40. Chris Matthews is worthless.

  41. Another great post by SM77. If Obama wasn’t running for President, he would probably be trying out for the Olympics. Of course it wouldn’t occur to him to compete for his gold medals, he would just assume that they should be handed to him by the super-judges.

  42. Katiebird, Getting banned is a badge of honor!

  43. Here’s my latest:

    bitterness does not become you (0+ / 0-)

    if you take that chip off your shoulder you might feel lighter, and breathe more easily.

    by valadon on Thu Jul 24, 2008 at 05:12:00 PM CDT

    No Bitterness. (0 / 0)

    I mean it. Have we ever nominated a guy who never worked a full time job before?

    I mean the whole “God Damn America” thing is fantastic. But, so seriously underemployed? It’s astonishing.

    I’m thrilled to watch this develop.

    by katiebird on Thursday, July 24, 2008 5:17:13 PM

  44. Wig Wag – THANK YOU!!! It’s a continuation of Gary Chapell Hill’s post below about Obama’s disdain for free speech.

    Please read his as well. Stay around for the cocktail!

  45. Bob Herbert and Chris Matthews are both media whores. I can’t wait to see the both of them along with Maddow and Olbermann break down and cry on election night.

  46. Katiebird – LOL!

    Seriously, NO ONE CAN DEFEND that arguement, not even die-hard Kool-Aidists.

  47. Disenfranchised: Bob & Chris have bruises on their tonsils, that’s how hard they deep throated the OBAMA.

  48. SM, thank you for pointing out Gary Chapell Hill’s post. I hadn’t read it until you pointed it out to me. Wow is that frightening. It’s just more evidence that Obama is as bad as Bush and maybe worse than McCain.

    Thank goodness for the ACLU!

  49. sm77: how deliciously dastardly of you

  50. FLVoter, on July 24th, 2008 at 4:21 pm Said:
    Wow! I guess you can buy the Presidency, or at least try real hard to buy it. Thank you for a very informative post.

    I’m reading this from work and just ready to leave, but
    FLVoter, you have just convinced me to vote McCain. I didn’t think I’d ever say that. But this post and your comment really did it for me.


  51. OMG…what did I do?
    This is all because I’m in a hurry to get out of work.
    Can someone fix that last comment of mine?

  52. Parentofed, what deliciously dastardly thing I done did?

  53. BO’s words “I don’t look like anyone that has ever spoken here before”- go BO play that race card to a crowd of 2nd and 3rd generation’s away from one of the worst bigotry’s in history.

    What they didn’t tell us was that as ususal BO supplied the crowd with rock bands, free beer and german sausages! This is the biggest scam in the world!

    PUMA$ are you ready to Rock, Rule and Donate? See ya at the top of the hour!

  54. I did leslie – no probs

  55. katiebird–You are the cat’s meow! I don’t think I could bring myself to even go over to you-now-where, much less post a comment. Wonder how much fun the Obots think it is when someone outplays them at their own game.

  56. The time is ripe for PBS “Frontline” producers and reporters to follow the money, from Super Delegates to NBC, so blatant. That should temp somebody and maybe scare a few people straight. Too bad Michael Moore went into the tank for the Chosen One.

  57. When 67% of the public think Obama’s “fact finding tour” is a waste of time and 78% of the public thinks that he is getting more coverage than McCain, then Houston, we have a problem.

  58. Fox poll is BAD news for Barack:

    in a heads up with McCain, no VP,

    BO 41%
    JM 40%

    with veeps

    BO + Hillary 48%
    JM + Romney 39%

    I wonder if that scares the shit out of them, I hope so….speaking of scared, the poll also shows 19% of Americans are “scared” of an Obama presidency–count me in as one of those people…

  60. (sniff) How many hidden comments does it take to get banned over there?

  61. sm77 ~
    thanks so much.
    Now I can go home with peace of mind and visit the Confluence in just a little over an hour.
    see you later.

  62. Thomas 4 Clinton: Wonder if Michael Moore is still rabid over him since the FISA vote. And his ties to corporate interests starting with GE and AT&T. Hasn’t he based his whole career on ferreting those ties out?

  63. Thomas – there is a PUMA documentary in the works. Lori, a commenter here at the Confluence, her husband, a documentary film maker, are doing it.

  64. The undecided number is pretty high as well.

  65. We are like those pigs who smell out truffles. We can spot a “phony” a mile away.

  66. Katiebird: Just say “you know all you guys are cult freak worshippers, Obama is the DEATH OF DEMOCRACY. PUMAs ROCK!!!”

  67. Via Reuters: “I’d love to give a speech in Germany … a political speech or a speech that maybe the German people would be interested in, but I’d much prefer to do it as president of the United States rather than as a candidate … for the office of presidency,” McCain told reporters in Ohio.

    In the words of Kelso (That 70s Show): BURN!

  68. If hillary even gets near the ticket they win….hope she has the sense to say no thanks…

  69. katiebird: Did you actually get banned? If so, no loss. Playing with the high school contingent ain’t much fun.

  70. Pat, did you see that “update” on the post (Ed Rendell in the video)?

  71. Good for McCain! Watching that roadshow over there is a waste of time. We can now look forward to Obama giving is “state of the world” address after wrapping of FIVE FREAKEN’ DAYS OF FACT FINDING!

  72. Not yet, I’m trying:

    I’m just in the mood to talk. (0+ / 0-)

    And curious about the weirdness that took over my party.

    by katiebird on Thu Jul 24, 2008 at 05:36:34 PM CDT

    It’s our party too (0+ / 0-)

    not just yours. And Obama is the best politician that the Democrats have nominated since FDR.

    If this is OK, click Post:

    I’m hoping it’s soon. These guys aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer.

  73. SM: I did. Have replayed it over and over. The cutie patootie!!

  74. Eddy and I just looked at it again. He just said, “purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!” “PUMA$ Who Donate Rule!”

  75. pat, first he has to visit the other 12 continents!

  76. ditto what garychpelhill said.

  77. I just got caught….

  78. Obama the best politician since FDR? Gee, how will that go down with Caroline and Teddy for a start? The more I read this junk, the more determined I am to see him lose big time!

  79. I like to play with the electoral map. Things don’t look good for Obama: http://www.270towin.com
    My mother and I have decided to vote for McCain only because we live in a swing state that was disenfranchised and we want to see Obama lose. I hope Obama loses MI, FL, and OH. It’s over for Obama and the Cheatahs.

    Oh, and someone doing voter research for the DNC just called my house. I told her that I was voting for McCain but that I would vote for Senator Levin (D). I also mentioned that I voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries and there was no way I’d support Obama. The woman over the phone actually chuckled.


  80. I don’t want Hillary as a VP for barry — there is ZERO benefit to her — it only benefits him — and I can’t stand his smirky attitude – dismissive attitude towards women. He’s an opportunists.

    Call me bitter, call me racists – he’ll NEVER have my vote. I am too smart for his phony ways.

  81. Bet he doesn’t realize there are more than 2. This guy can’t seem to count the correct number of states in the USA for starters. I have a sneaky hunch this carnival trip has not paid off as well as they had planned.

  82. LOL @ Gary! Sad that this is likely his thinking.

  83. My Cosmos are chilling in the fridge. Ed likes them chilled so I put the glasses in the freezer. He appreciates consideration.

  84. Great , The O goes on an European vacation and we will be forced to watch the slide show during the game, just great. I can see it now” Here is where I stood and talked and over there I stood while fans threw air kisses” , what else does he have to talk about.

    Hillary 08!!!!

  85. Trust me he has been very appreciative.

  86. Carol: )(_*+*&^!!!!!!!!!!!! &^%$#@!!!!!!!

  87. !! Done — It took about 1/2 hour. I think I’m banned. Can’t post a diary, comment or rate!!

    (smiling) It’s been haunting me.

  88. Congrats Katiebird!!!

    Riverdaughter started the cocktail soiree, bring the conversation over to her thread!

  89. katiebird: I bow to your tenacity!

  90. I really think Moore was key in helping turn the tide against the right-wing; sensitizing, and empowering moderates and rational liberals to step up. He got mad/confused by the Iraq authorization vote even with all of the preconditions. Pat, FISA and O’s phony perversion of Universal Healthcare should wake him up quick but we have to assume he has been rendered useless for the duration. sm77, I’ll wait for PUMA’s documentary and HOPE it takes hold.

  91. I just read the article on Rove and Brazile cut from the same cloth…aif obama survives the convention and is slaughtered in the GE we have to dump the witch and if I we a violentman I would say just shoot her.

    that article gave me 100 more reasons to Hate Donna Brazile with a capital “F”


  92. any way will be walkin’ for hillary very shortly!

    dont forget to help retire our cmpaign debt


  93. all bought and paid for, Gary — isn’t that something!
    now were the mag covers paid for too?

    these guys are NON GREEN
    they are greenbacks, only….

    And over at Violets Reclusive Leftist it’s all about EVA PERON

    over at my place, it’s all about PUMAs Good Samaritan values vs miss blings o’ the party we just say………………plus, I love what myiq2xu had to say so I quoted him….he’s a pumapal o’ California and we are all about GREEN, not Chicago crooked Rezko greenbacks———-

  94. I stopped watching MSNBC when Chris Matthews felt chills up his leg. I stopped watching the Today Show shortly thereafter.
    This year, I stop watching the Olympics. And I no longer buy anything General Electric. And I have children.

  95. WTF?, on July 24th, 2008 at 7:50 pm Said:

    Apparently Taylor Marsh is posting here.


  96. Who owns the #1 Hillary hating news channel, General Electric.
    GE owns NBC and MSNBC ….
    Who have been large contributors to Obama’s campaigns, General Electric and Exelon!Axelrod was a lobbyist for ExelonWho owns one of the largest loan insurance and credit card companies in America? General Electric. Who voted for unlimited credit limits and voted against a 30% cap on credit cards? Obama! Obama said he voted against the 30% cap because it was too high. Apparently NO cap is better than a cap that’s too high.
    Rezko, as a real estate magnate in Chicago, was given a contract for 3 energy plants to be built in Iraq…. through our government. The plants were never built because Rezko got indicted, but NO DOUBT that Senator Obama helped Rezko GET that contract for Rezko. Not to mention that Axelrod was a lobbyist for Exelon (and the later nuclear legislation with no teeth), or that much of the $$$ loans came through General Electric Financial.
    Do I have to mention that GE owns MSNBC, Chrissy, Keith, and Andrea Mitchell? .Some say Rezko was GE money and Alsammarae was GE power, but GE is one company with many divisions, just like Exelon is multiple companies but John Rowe is Chairman of them all!
    And wasn’t (alleged) domestic terrorist William Ayer’s daddy the CEO of Commonwealth Edison, the electrical utility provider for much of Illinois ?
    Obama has a call center in Gaza, that’s also a red flag.Look up the definition of “s**t magnet” and you’ll find a picture of Obama.Fr Michael Pfleger anti-gun crusader extraordaire!BBF NOI & Wright.
    Barack actually makes Bush look competent.Dean must be so proud.
    The maker of the bad sale of generators to Alsammarae, General Electric. Mr Alsammarae is accused by the Iraqi government of stealing 650 million dollars from the American taxpayer, via CPA. This is in part why he was jailed, in Iraq.
    Such a boatload of dirty friends……drip…drip if that boat springs a leak…watch out.

    I am so thrilled with Barry right now… just jazzed…….

  100. Is this how the NBC/Obama/GE love marathon went down? : You scratch my back a little by saying I am the second coming of JFK & MLK, Jr., and I scratch you $5 million dollars for your Olympics.

    Per the New Yorker, that’s the way he did it in Chicago. Nothing illegal mind you, but hey those tax credits for developers/fundraisers like Tony Rezko to, ah, “develop” the South Side sure were great policy!

    There is an “ism” word that begins with an F that describes this very thing. Mussolini would be proud.

    No, there isn’t. Fascism is an ideology of radical social change through organized violence. Obama isn’t even CLOSE TO that.

  101. Well, Obama got the bump in the polls that they were looking for, it was not as much, as I thought he might get, but its going to put a little steel in the back of some of these super delegates. This was a campaign trip that cost the American payer Millions of $$$$$ and to see Jack Reed (who I like) and Chuck Hagel sitting there looking like “props” for a TV show, was almost disgraceful. The Rasmussen tracking poll and one other poll picked up some of the bump, but all is not well in OBamaland , McCain is ganing in four battleground sates and still leads in Ohio by six points. Florida just don’t sound right as they now have Obama leading by one point and when they credit him carrying Florida it gives the impression of a big lead in the electorial college numbers.Right now we need something positive to come out about Hillary Clinton. Just someting to the effect that her debt has been paid off would help charge up her supporters.

  102. I am reminded that Obama outspent Hillary by 3 or 4 to 1 in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and still LOST to Hillary–proving that money doesn’t necessarily buy victory. Advertising on the Olympics will backfire, since the Olympics should be about the athletes, not Obama. He will generate even more Obama fatigue. Obama will soon realize that he can’t fool all of the people all of the time, and fewer some of the time. I agree with Jessie, that it’s time for Hillary’s voice to be heard: she is making important leadership statements about women’s issues, FISA. The PUMA websites should be talking up Hillary amidst the revelations about Obama.
