Obama Doles Out Taxpayer Cash to Corporate Media

The Daily Caller is reporting that two crown jewels in the CIA’s long-standing corporate media propaganda effort – the Washington Post and CBS – are receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars each from hohttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifodwinked taxpayers in order to twist coverage of Obamacare.

“Two mainstream news organizations are receiving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars from Obamacare’s Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) — a $5 billion grant program that’s doling out cash to companies, states and labor unions in what the Obama administration considers an effort to pay for health insurance for early retirees. The Washington Post Company raked in $573,217 in taxpayer subsidies and CBS Corporation secured $722,388 worth of Americans’ money,” writes Matthew Boyle for The Daily Caller.

“When NBC used to cover energy issues, they identified themselves as a subsidiary of General Electric. CBS and Washington Post just have to disclose that they are subsidiaries of the Obama Administration,” quipped Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican.

It’s a bit more sinister than that. The Obama administration is owned by Goldman Sachs and the banksters on Wall Street. CBS, the Washington Post, and the rest of the corporate media is controlled by the CIA, which was created by Wall Street and other establishment insiders.

“This program is providing ‘free’ money to corporations, states, unions, and pension plans. In addition, the Washington Post and CBS received funding under this program. How can the Washington Post and CBS be impartial on the issue of health care when they received funding under the health care law?” asked Rep. Cliff Stearns, a Florida Republican.

Is the Washington political class uniformly clueless? Obviously, with a few notable exceptions. The Washington Post and CBS have never been impartial, it is not in their vocabulary. They are propaganda feeder units for the establishment and the banksters who own them.

Preferred minions and useful idiots always receive “free money” confiscated at gunpoint from beleaguered tax payers. Socialism for corporations is hardly a unique concept – this form of theft has been going on for decades.

Nothing happening here. Please move along.
