Comcast buys the other half of NBC Universal, meaning your cable provider owns 30 Rock

  • $16.7B the amount Comcast will pay General Electric for the 49 percent stake in NBC Universal it doesn’t currently own. The sale includes the sale of NBC’s iconic 30 Rockefeller Center building in NYC. General Electric, until now, had been in the entertainment industry for roughly 90 years. Let’s hope a small fraction of this dollar amount goes to bringing EveryBlock back online. source

Blame the David Gregory gun flap on crossed wires

  • situation On Sunday, “Meet the Press” host David Gregory discussed gun control with the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre. During the interview, Gregory pulled out an empty gun magazine for purposes of showing the audience at home. 
  • claim He was in D.C., however, which has very strict gun control laws. The city claimed that they told NBC they could now do this, leading to an investigation of Gregory. People rolled their eyes or criticized Gregory for being stupid.
  • counterclaim However — and here’s the fun part — NBC asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives before the show if they could show ammunition or an empty magazine on air. The ATF asked the city, and based on info provided to them, told NBC it was OK to show an empty magazine. So basically, this all happened because someone screwed up somewhere. source

We started a Web site, but NBC refused to let us put the address on any of our ads because they didn’t want people to know the Internet existed. They were worried about losing viewers to it.

In a way, they were right (ratings as a whole are down, people aren’t watching TV as much), but in another way, this was so shortsighted.

Lecture Night in America: Following the murder-suicide allegedly carried out by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Javon Belcher on Saturday, Bob Costas ruffled a few feathers when he decided to offer his own opinion on the need for better gun control during halftime of the Eagles/Cowboys game last night.
