State-Controlled Media: CBS and Washington Post Receiving ObamaCare Slush Fund Money

I guess this is no big deal. After all, these two impartial bastions of the mainstream media have been entirely fair in their critique of the government takeover of your health care.

Oh, wait...
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.

“It is fine with me if they continue covering the ObamaCare debate,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee, in an e-mail to 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.”
This is wonderful. GE, which owns NBC, isn't even paying taxes while their chairman is an Obama economic adviser, and now CBS and the WaPo are being subsidized by Obama. Apparently none of the rest of Obama's pom-pom media have any problem with this.

<span>This is no surprise! Fascist practices have been a mainstay in government for decades! This really is business as is the sheeple's typical total obliviousness to the situation, as we fall further and further under New World Order control as a nation. Sleep tight!</span>
