The Prez, The Press, The Pressure
Networks Grouse About Obama in Prime Time
By Howard Kurtz
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, August 3, 2009




In the days before President Obama's last news conference, as the networks weighed whether to give up a chunk of their precious prime time, Rahm Emanuel went straight to the top.

Rather than calling ABC, the White House chief of staff phoned Bob Iger, chief executive of parent company Disney. Instead of contacting NBC, Emanuel went to Jeffrey Immelt, the chief executive of General Electric. He also spoke with Les Moonves, the chief executive of CBS, the company spun off from Viacom.

Whether this amounted to undue pressure or plain old Chicago arm-twisting, Emanuel got results: the fourth hour of lucrative network time for his boss in six months. But network executives have been privately complaining to White House officials that they cannot afford to keep airing these sessions in the current economic downturn.

The networks "absolutely" feel pressured, says Paul Friedman, CBS's senior vice president: "It's an enormous financial cost when the president replaces one of those prime-time hours. The news divisions also have mixed feelings about whether they are being used."


Make them eat the pudding!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't help but wonder what the reaction would be to the networks running advertisements across the bottom as Obamanation is running his mouth.

Imagine! Insurance companies, ads saying "This guy is LYING!!", etc.

I wonder how Rahm would react?

emmanaul is a dangerous SOB he is the Geobles of this administration and one of the first one to be tried when it all falls apart
for a Jew he is a good little nazi...as is his euginicist brother.



DEAR GOD, I pray the Libs start to wake up and realize they have elected a Facist to the highest office of the land and he is setting himself up to RULE America..

The media has given up all semblence of objectivity and honest journalism. The MSM news has about as much credibility as pitchman infomerical. Which is about all it is anymore. Instead of selling us some garbage product, they're selling us some garbage ideas.

Really?

Goebles used lies and deception to forward the destructive agenda of his boss, all the time fooling the people who were supposed to benefit from the actions that they were lucky to have such men as their leaders, that the time was NOW, and that the leaders knew better what was good for the population and the country than the people did. Everything that came out of the media had his stamp of approval on it, and those who didn't toe the line were pressured to do so, sometimes harshly.

And that's precisely what Emmanuel is doing, Jew or not.

I've always thought that the "end game" for the MSM is to somehow get the administration to agree to have some of their news outlets (or divisions) declared as "non-profits" so that they can avoid paying taxes. If they raise a big fuss about about losing money because bo likes to see his face on prime-time TV it stands to reason that one way to pay this off politically is for some kind of backdoor tax break.

You know, I think that ol' Rham is probably the one actually running this country.

He's obviously controlling the media and he's definitely the one exerting all the pressure on the Congress to get the agenda passed. The O man is looking more and more like a figure head and Rham is looking more and more like the real power behind the throne.
