Stimulus funds used to propagandize green energy jobs on MSNBC
The Washington Times is reporting that $500,000 in stimulus funds were used by the Labor Department to hire McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC to promote the potential for jobs in the green energy field.
These funds were then used to buy advertising on shows on MSNBC anchored by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann to push Barack Obama’s green energy plan. We now know how much of a failure Barack Obama’s green energy initiative has been, it was simply a means to funnel money back into the campaign coffers of well connected Democrats as I have shown in my many ‘Solargate’ posts, and if any jobs were created as a result that was simply considered a bonus.
The Obama regime needed to promote this agenda if this was to be the next big thing so they allocated a small percentage of the money to be used by a friendly news outlet to further the agenda, this was nothing more than a political stunt designed to draw support for a political position using taxpayer money:
this was obviously meant for selling a particular political agenda,” Mr. Williams said. “The placement really reeks of a political ad rather than a job ad, and taxpayers see through this.
“Taxpayers would be a lot happier at the end of the day to see a completed road rather than a bunch of ads on cable television
Taxpayer money was taken from stimulus funds and used to run political ads to promote an agenda which was failing, and while $500,000 might not be allot of money when we are talking about billions of dollars this still highlights the incestuous relationship between the Obama regime and the propaganda arm of the regime otherwise known as the mainstream media.
