MSNBC has been one of the main cheerleaders in the rise of Obama. It appears that the company behind the news station has taken the effort one step farther.
Despite paying Olbermann, Maddow, and Schultz, NBC now feels it necessary to assist the President's political future by selling merchandise slathered with his picture directly on their site. Maybe they need the extra money to pay off Olbermann's new salary.
So is this illegal? No. Is it completely misleading considering that NBC News wants to be 'impartial'? Absolutely. This is a gross smack in the face for anyone that wants to watch unbiased and non-snooty news.
Which brings us back to the original question. What if FoxNews was selling George W. Bush keychains and pictures and mousepads? It would have been 'exposed' as just another branch of the Republican 'hate machine.' Well, where are our lefty friends to call out this gross act of greed.
That's what I thought.
