Fox News Infiltrates GE Event

The showdown between Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann is going straight to the top. During a shareholder meeting at GE, MSNBC's parent company, a "gotcha" reporter/producer for Fox News peppered GE's CEO Jeff Immelt with pointed questions about the news network's liberal bias before his microphone was abruptly cut off. The questions were not that out of place at the meeting, however, as other attendees echoed the producer's criticism. One shareholder asked the GE CEO if he had personally ordered news executives to portray Barack Obama in a favorable light. Others openly criticized Olbermann's credibility as a journalist. "The crowd was very upset with MSNBC because of its leftward tilt. Some former employees said they were embarrassed by it," one attendee told the Hollywood Reporter. Interestingly, several of the shareholders who harshly criticized MSNBC are also involved with Fox News. Isn't that some sort of conflict of interest?
