The Simple Reason You Will Never Hear Anything Unflattering About the Nuclear Industry on an NBC or CBS-owned Media Property

General Electric, which Forbes ranked with General Motors as Number 1 in the Forbes 500, has an enormous financial stake in the continuation and development of the nuclear power industry.

In addition to its industrial holdings, General Electric owns NBC which controls the following assets:

  • 9 television stations including ones in New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC
  • 25% of more of the following cable channels: CNBC, CourtTV, Bravo, MSNBC, A&E, the History Channel Plus these key news programs:
  • The Today Show
  • Meet the Press
  • Dateline NBC
  • NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw

Westinghouse, another company involved in the nuclear industry, including in the handling and disposal of nuclear waste, owns CBS. CBS owns 14 major maket TV stations, over 40 radio stations, a radio news network carried by 450 stations, and the following key news programs:

  • CBS Morning News
  • 60 Minutes
  • CBS Evening News with Dan Rather
  • 48 Hours
  • Face the Nation

Now are you beginning to see why information about ongoing dangers related to nuclear power, here and in space, has all but disappeared from the airwaves and thus the public consciousness?
