    Do you think MSNBC sent out a notice to their viewers?
    “Due to nothing going on that we want to talk about please do not watch us just in case we HAVE to mention how much scandal there is in the Obama administration. Move along, nothing to see here!”

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Tama & Coffee Steve. LOL :)

  • Ratboy

    IRS exec got $42K in bonuses in three years

    Lois Lerner, the senior executive in charge of the IRS tax exemption department and the federal employee at the center of the exploding scandal over the IRS targeting of conservative, evangelical and pro-Israel non-profits, was given $42,531 in bonuses between 2009 and 2011.

    That figure was included in data provided by the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Washington Examiner. Lerner is director of the IRS exempt organizations division, which processes and approves or denies applications from groups seeking tax-exempt status.

    Lerner received $17,220 for 2010, $24,691 for 2011 and $10,620 for 2012, the most recent year for which the IRS said data was available.

    Her annual salary in 2009 and 2010 was $172,200, and $177,000 in 2011 and 2012. With the bonuses, Lerner was paid a total of $740,931 for the four-year period.

    Lerner admitted last week that her agency had singled out conservative groups with words like “Tea Party” and “Patriot” in their names. Being singled out reportedly delayed resolution of their application for many months for most of the groups, while applications from liberals groups were typically processed in only a month or two.

    Maddow’s viewers are down to 600K. Remember when she was the only MSNBC program that had over a million viewers a day?

    Ooh, that’s GOTTA hurt, Rachel.

    I don’t think so1 CNN ratings only go up during a tragedy and Obumbles resigning is NO tragedy!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Ralph Hahn

    @usahole: WHERE are those facts you were told to produce when you claimed that 2/3rds of FNC viewers were ‘elderly’?

    Maybe you DON’T have any evidence of your claim. So…you’re a liar!

  • Mark

    Hahahahahah….libtards can’t stand watching any, any criticism of Obama, so they made sure not to watch.

    Libtards, dumber than dirt.

    Shareholders Target MSNBC During Comcast’s Annual Meeting

    Activist Shareholders Target MSNBC During Comcast’s Annual Meeting

    CEO Brian Roberts is asked: “Why would a conservative person in any state want their money to go pay for Al Sharpton’s salary?”

    Those who own Comcast stock and took the time to vote shot down a couple of shareholder proposals on Wednesday at the media conglomerate’s annual meeting in Philadelphia. Others who attended were simply there to complain about the politics of MSNBC.

    One proposal sought to undo Comcast’s dual-class voting structure, a system that affords CEO Brian Roberts one-third voting rights though he owns only 3 percent of outstanding shares, according to those who supported the measure.

    Also not passing was a proposal prohibiting the accelerated vesting of equity compensation awards to executives upon a change of control of the company, an exercise supporters said could lead to some executives receiving monetary windfalls regardless of performance.

    The company did not support either measure.

    Also at the meeting, shareholders reelected the entire slate of board nominees.

    Roberts boasted that Comcast stock climbed 60.7 percent in 2012 compared with a 16 percent advance for the S&P 500. He also said that if an investor had purchased 1,000 shares of Comcast at $7 apiece when his father founded the company in 1972, their investment would be worth $6.3 million today.

    The CEO said its NBCUniversal asset performed extraordinarily well in 2012 in no small part due to the London Olympic games, which were watched by a record 219 million Americans across all platforms.

    Ted, The Lorax and Les Miserables led Universal’s studio operations, he said.

    Democrat Savages Eric Holder: DoJ Justice Has ‘Impaired the First Amendment’

    During a congressional hearing on Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder was grilled by representatives regarding his knowledge of the scandal surrounding the Justice Department’s seizure of the Associated Press’ phone records. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) interrogated Holder over his decision to recuse himself from the case, and declared that the Obama administration had “impaired the First Amendment.”

    “The actions of the Department have, in fact, impaired the First Amendment” Lofgren began. “Reporters that might have previously believed that a confidential source would speak to them would no longer have that level of confidence, because those confidential sources are going to be chilled in their relationship with the press.”
