MSM Ignores or Buries Corzine Party Affiliation




Jon Corzine, Democrat, former New Jersey senator and governor, former Goldman Sachs CEO, former MF Global CEO, and (former?) Obama confidant, was advised by Teneo Holdings, whose chairman of the advisory board is Democrat former president Bill Clinton. MF Global was advised by Teneo to invest in European financial investments like the ones that ultimately led to MF Global’s collapse in October, 2011. Said Corzine on Thursday, December 8, 2011, “I simply do not know where the money is, or why the accounts have not been reconciled to date.” He continued, “My sadness, of course, pales in comparison to the losses and hardships that customers, employees and investors suffered as a result of MF Global’s bankruptcy.” In the wake of the Enron scandal, Corzine was a BIG supporter of what became known as Sarbanes-Oxley which, among other things, forced CEOs to take personal (and criminal) responsibility for reporting what was going on in their companies to (supposedly) prevent investors from losing lots and lots of money due to internal shenanigans by executives at companies who had only the most passing interest in protecting their stockholders’ and investors’ money.

BTW, Jon Corzine made $400 million when Goldman Sachs went public.

But enough about Jon Corzine and his troubles. Let’s get on with the purpose of this post.

Did you know that NPR, CBS, and ABC have trouble in their “news” broadcasts identifying Jon Corzine as a Democrat? Only the NBC Nightly News took the time to say he is a Democrat.

On Thursday’s (December 8, 2011) All Things Considered, NPR’s Yuki Noguchi and Lynn Neary omitted Jon Corzine’s Democrat affiliation, while Noguchi gave the Republican party affiliation of Frank Lucas and Timothy Johnson, two representatives who questioned Corzine at a recent hearing.

After NBC News anchor Brian Williams set up the Corzine report, correspondent Kelly O’Donnell included Corzine’s party affiliation in only the beginning of her report.

On the CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley failed to identify Corzine’s party.

As ABC’s World News devoted an entire report to Corzine’s testimony, neither substitute anchor David Muir nor correspondent Linsey Davis mentioned party affiliation.

And the New York Times, in an October story, cited Corzine’s party affiliation in paragraph nine.

This Associated Press story, a rather long one (judge for yourself) that discusses Corzine’s career, mentioned his party affiliation in the penultimate paragraph.

    I want some of this guys money! I know that somewhere along the line he stole U.S. taxpayers money so some of that was mine. I want one million dollars in “repairations”. Don’t think Blacks are the only one’s who think they deserve repairations, White taxpayers do more that anyone since we’re the one’s who are busting our butts working seven days a week to keep a roof over our heads deserve more repairations than anyone in this country.

    Corizine is a big lib who is in the business of stealing money from working taxpayers so they can give it to their business friends especially Goldman Sachs who seems to be at the root of most all this mess our economy is in now all the way back to Clinton with his Treasury Sec. coming from Goldman Sachs, who was kept by Bush, who was kept by Obama, has been stealing money from us for decades! We want our money back and I think maybe since Corizine got a 300 million severance package from Goldman Sachs, I think he could cough up 1 million of all the money that bastard has made since he’s been in cohoots with all these sorry a** liberal Democrats, and why is it always Democrats who are doing these things to us but you out there keep electing them and reelecting them to office?, I think I deserve something for having to pay for a Party to do the kinds of things to my country that they have been doing ever since the 60’s and 70’s, and paying for a Party I’m not even a member of is stealing my money and won’t give any of it back.

    So I want some of the money these high level White Collar Criminals have stolen from us all these years. You know I’m raising my requirment to 10 million dollars! I can see that amount of money. That would take care of me and my kids for the rest of their lives and I’ll bet we do a hell of a lot more good with it than Corizine ever could, or any of these sorry a** Democrats! What have they done for any single person who needed help lately? Not a damn thing I’m sure!!
