Steve Milloy on O'Reilly Factor Discussing Relationship Between GE, NBC and White HouseSteve Milloy, author of the 2009 book Green Hell, proprietor of the Green Hell and Junk Science websites and co-director of the National Center for Public Policy Research's Free Enterprise Project, was the first guest on the O'Reilly Factor Monday evening.
The topic: The mutual support system between General Electric, NBC News, the left-wing environmental movement and the Obama Administration.
The discussion included an August 19 email by a GE vice chairman saying "The intersection between GE's interests and government action is clearer than ever," among other things. The e-mail made it clear GE supports climate legislation for its own financial benefit, and is working hard to see it enacted.
The August 19 email also makes clear that the company is making campaign contributions as part of its strategy to see the enactment of legislation from which it can benefit financially.
For more information on the August 19 email, see Timothy Carner's article in the Washington Examiner, "Leaked E-mail Shows How GE Puts the Government to Work for GE."
