A Week's Worth of Reasons to Avoid NBC
Having learned nothing from airing the Goracle's "Live Earth" flop, increasingly moonbatty NBC is gearing up for a massive propaganda barrage in support of the global warming hoax.
The week-long push by the entire NBC Universal family goes by the codename "Green Is Universal," and is scheduled for November 4–10. Those bored enough to watch have the following to look forward to:
Bravo's coverage across all screens — TV, Internet and phone — will include a special "Watch What Happens" broadband broadcast hosted by Andy Cohen featuring Bravo designers, stylists and chefs giving "green tips" on food, fashion, beauty, design and pop culture.
Sci Fi Channel's week will include a green episode of Flash Gordon, a Eureka season-one marathon with a "Technology and Science to the Rescue" theme and a movie night centering on our "Dangerously Changing Planet."
Sundance Channel's weekly eco-destination, "The Green," Nov. 6 will showcase Big Ideas for a Small Planet: Kids and the premiere of Radiant City, Gary Burns' new film about suburban sprawl and 21st Century suburbanites.
Through a series of on-air and online character vignettes, USA Network will recognize everyday activists, including celebrities, who are making a difference to help save the environment.
CNBC's programming throughout the week will focus on ways in which "going green" can make both a global impact and be financially beneficial. The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch will explore the most cutting-edge and innovative "green" initiatives that businesses are implementing, as well as assessing the impact that going green makes on a business' bottom line.
On NBC, the Peacock's entire Thursday-night lineup — The Office, My Name Is Earl, 30 Rock, Heroes and Deal or No Deal — will be eco-themed, while NBC News will take in-depth looks at the issues and some unique special broadcast events.
Kicking off the week with its Sunday Night Football matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, the gridiron contest will include Green Is Universal announcements and incorporate the theme through the telecast, as will the college-football game between Air Force and Notre Dame Nov. 10.
You can't even watch a football game on NBC without having hysterical global warming propaganda rammed down your throat — as if having shrill leftist Keith Olbermann on Football Night in America wasn't bad enough already.

The worst of them is ER, a once great show that has been reduced to a load of crap. They never miss taking cheap shots at the efforts in Iraq. Last week it was the old myth about sending our troops into battle without body armor. The previous 2 seasons have been sprinkled with negative remarks about Iraq, military hospitals, ect. Ratings have also plummeted as a result and this will be the final season - thank God.

The only great thing about NBC lately is USA Network's The 4400.
I do think that the green movement is being **used** as propaganda. Every time I see a whole network going to this much effort, I have to wonder if they are planning to get some sort of award for it later on.
Thanks for bringing attention to this!
