CNN fact check

CNN fact checks Obama skit, but never fact checks skits about Bush or Palin. Maybe that is why CNN was called the Clinton News Network.

KN: Jon Stewart is funny. Makes fun of Fox News for not showing the gay march(not many news programs had it, or spent much time on it) , than will turn around and make fun of what Fox News does show. The guy is just a comic. I say if he doesn't like (top rated-by a long shot) Fox News, don't watch it. Very simple. Keep watching NBC or CNN.
The State run media outlets.

What does it mean? Nothing! Gay rights is not on my radar screen.

I don't care one way or the other about gay rights. If gays want to get married, I don't care. You want to get rid of " don't ask, don't tell" I don't care. Get rid of it.

I and 90% of the country have other things to be concerned about.
Like protecting the country and the peoples rights.
And getting the country growing in the right direction.

Geithner Aides Reaped Millions Working for Banks, Hedge Funds

By Robert Schmidt

Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) — Some of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s closest aides, none of whom faced Senate confirmation, earned millions of dollars a year working for Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Citigroup Inc. and other Wall Street firms, according to financial disclosure forms.

The advisers include Gene Sperling, who last year took in $887,727 from Goldman Sachs and $158,000 for speeches mostly to financial companies, including the firm run by accused Ponzi scheme mastermind R. Allen Stanford. Another top aide, Lee Sachs, reported more than $3 million in salary and partnership income from Mariner Investment Group, a New York hedge fund.

As part of Geithner’s kitchen cabinet, Sperling and Sachs wield influence behind the scenes at the Treasury Department, where they help oversee the $700 billion banking rescue and craft executive pay rules and the revamp of financial regulations. Yet they haven’t faced the public scrutiny given to Senate-confirmed appointees, nor are they compelled to testify in Congress to defend or explain the Treasury’s policies
