The media and Rockefellar..

Did you know that all the main media; NBC and MSNBC are both located in the RCA Building, or GE Building at 30 Rockefellar Plaza. The Rockefellar's own all of that. If anyone doesnt know who the Rockefellars are, do some research. And yet you call Fox News "Faux News".. RIGHT.

  • Are you implying that the Rockefellars own NBC and MSBC or what ? A lot of companies rent their premises but that does not mean to say their landlords dictate their policies. Fox owner Murdoch owns press and media companies in other countries but they are not all as conservative leaning as Fox in the US .

  • Rockefellers, first of all. Built by John D. Rockefeller. The Rockefellers did manage the properties but were bought out quite a few years ago. Jerry Speyer is the current owner of the Center.

    Fox News HQ is ALSO in Rockefeller Center. Along with the Time Life building and a lot of other companies.

  • Natesmom...Jeffrey Immelt is a member of the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board. And that board ALSO includes a former ewconomic advisor to Ronald Reagan!

    Kind of interesting.

    But here's the thing that non-media folks don't understand. The big corporations may sign the checks and manage the budgets. BUT...they have nothing to do with the day to day editorial decisions. They just don't drill down that far.

    Actually there has been some recent questioning from shareholders about MSNBC, if you watch the news at all.
