NBC is worried about bias on one of its cable networks. Not at MSNBC, the network of anti-Republican screedmongers Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann, which never even saw the need to apologize for Matthews editorializing “oh god” when Bobby Jindal responded to the president’s budget address. No, the problem is CNBC, where a couple of hosts have been critical of the president’s insanely reckless fiscal policy. The NY Post reports:
THE top suits and some of the on-air talent at CNBC were recently ordered to a top-secret meeting with General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt and NBC Universal President Jeff Zucker to discuss whether they’ve turned into the President Obama-bashing network, Page Six has learned.
“It was an intensive, three-hour dinner at 30 Rock which Zucker himself was behind,” a source familiar with the powwow told us. “There was a long discussion about whether CNBC has become too conservative and is beating up on Obama too much. There’s great concern that CNBC is now the anti-Obama network. The whole meeting was really kind of creepy.”
