Actually it was Greta Van Susteren who helped out the ever irreverent Lefty Ana Marie.

But, a good catch by Greta.

share save 120 16 Drama at General Electric Shareholders Meeting: Why is MSNBC Slanting LEFT?; Updated: Jesse Waters Audio
Bill O’Reilly responds to Janeane Garofalo’s comments on teabaggers by blaming GE and NBC

Bill O’Reilly Show and Fox News Producer Jesse Waters ambush General Electric Executives at annual stockholder meeting again this year.

The hostility between Fox News Channel and MSNBC reached a fever pitch Wednesday when a Fox producer infiltrated the GE shareholders meeting.

Just before GE re-elected board members, company brass were hit with questions from shareholders critical of an alleged leftward political slant at MSNBC.

But one of those questions came from Jesse Waters, a producer on “The O’Reilly Factor” whose criticisms were cut short when his microphone was cut off, according to several attendees. Waters apparently did not publicly identify himself as a Fox employee.

Waters has built a reputation as an ambush interviewer, specializing in on-the-street confrontations. But this is arguably the boldest move by a Fox newsie to utilize the tactic inside their chief rival’s tent, as it were.

O’Reilly and MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann have been involved in a running feud for several years, but the pissing match between the two has of late started to envelope other parts of the News Corp. and GE empires.

GE pointed out that Waters had Fox News cameras waiting outside the Orlando meeting.

Attendees who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter said shareholders asked about 10 politically charged questions concerning MSNBC as well as one about CNBC.

It should be noted that Jesse Waters is a shareholder of General Electric and asked questions last year at the annual meeting. Apparently, the shareholders were upset with MSNBC because of its leftward lean politically.

When he got the floor, Waters focused his question about MSNBC on Olbermann’s interview of actress Janeane Garofalo, who likened conservatives to racists and spoke of “the limbic brain inside a right-winger.”

“He (Waters) was complaining that Olbermann didn’t bother to challenge her,” another GE shareholder said.

Immelt told the assembled he takes a hands-off approach to what is reported on the company’s news networks, which prompted a shareholder to criticize him for not managing NBC Uni more effectively.

But, it is not just MSNBC’s talking heads that are ALL LEFT all of the time. The NBC News division both national and Los Angeles are filled with left-leaning stories, interviews and personalities.

So, are the GE shareholders worried about the sinking of the once mighty General Electric Corporation?

I wouldn’t own their stock.

Update:

Here is the audio of Jesse Water’s asking his question. Note the applause and the boos that follow Immelt’s response.

share save 120 16 Video: The Obligatory David Letterman Calling Bill OReilly a GOON Post
Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly on last night’s David Letterman Show

Bill O’Reilly is on a tour of the television talk shows to celebrate his TV ratings and hype his best selling book. This is average and fair reciprocating hype.

But, Letterman just cannot resist slamming O’Reilly.

DAVID LETTERMAN (holding up O’Reilly’s book): I want to tell you and this book is a crazy best seller. How many weeks has it been on the best seller list?

BILL O’REILLY:  Six months on the best seller list.

LETTERMAN: Here’s what breaks my heart about this. Because in my mind I think of you as a goon. But then when you look at this picture, look at how sweet and adorable that kid is and it breaks my heart because I have a sweet and adorable kid like that and I think, “Oh great! What if he too becomes a goon!

Flap wonders when Fox will field their own conservative oriented late night comedy show?

Soon…….

Totally understandable. Flap likes walks to clear his mind as well.

But, Keith Olbermann? Well, Olby is conflicted.

share save 120 16 Bill OReilly Skewers Think Progress Blogger Amanda Terkel For Attacking Rape Victim Alexa Branchini
Bill O’Reilly attacked Far Left bloggers for attacking rape victim Alexa Branchini at a fundraiser this past week in Florida. O’Reilly producer Jesse Waters confronted a clueless and dishonest Amanda Terkel from Think Progress during the segment.

And, Terkel is just SHOCKED that the RIGHT might actually use the same tactics as the MSM and the Far Left Media.

Is there a lesson to be learned here?

Update:

At the request of some commenters I am supplying some background links to further explore the flap between O’Reilly and Terkel:
