Keep Working America, MSNBC is Depending on You

Keep working America! MSNBC and President Obama's propaganda arm is depending on you. The Washington Times has discovered $495,000 of the $1 trillion stimulus package boondoggle was spent promoting "green" work training program commercials on MSNBC. And no, the training didn't result in jobs being created.

The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two MSNBC cable shows, records show.

The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009, but the contract didn’t report any jobs created, according to records reviewed recently by The Washington Times.

Spending reports under the federal Recovery Act show $495,000 paid to McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC, which the Labor Department hired to raise awareness “among employers and influencers about the [Job Corps] program’s existing and new training initiatives in high growth and environmentally friendly career areas” as well as spreading the word to prospective Job Corps enrollees.

The firm ultimately negotiated ad buys for “two approved spots” airing 14 times per week for two months on “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” and “The Rachel Maddow Show,” according to a project report, which listed the number zero under a section of the report asking how many jobs had been created through the stimulus contract.

That's right, taxpayer money wasted on more than 100 commercials promoting a failed program. This spending is on top of failed green energy loans to now bankrupt companies like Solyndra and further proof the stimulus package wasn't about creating jobs, but about giving President Obama a slush fund to purchase propaganda promoting him. Remember the millions in taxpayer money that was spent on construction signs promoting the stimulus?

On a side note, even Keith Olbermann is out of a job now!
