Profile on NBC News

Brian Douglas Williams (born May 5, 1959) is an American journalist who was the anchor and managing editor ofNBC Nightly News, the evening news program of the NBC television network. Williams assumed the position on December 2, 2004.[2] In 2005, NBC News was awarded the Peabody Award for its coverage of the Hurricane Katrina story, the award committee stating that Williams and the NBC staff displayed the “highest levels of journalistic excellence” in their reporting.[3]

In 2015, Williams recanted and apologized for telling an inaccurate story on the Nightly News about personal experiences on board a military helicopter during the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.[4] Williams was widely criticized and on February 10, 2015, NBC News president Deborah Turness announced he would be suspended for six months without pay.[5]

Early life

Born in Elmira, New York, Williams was reared in a well-to-do Irish Catholic home.[6] He is the son of Dorothy May (née Pampel) and Gordon Lewis Williams, who was an executive vice president of the National Retail Merchants Association, in New York.[7][8] He is the youngest of four siblings.[9] He lived in Elmira for ten years before moving toMiddletown, New Jersey, when he was in junior high school.[10]

He graduated from Mater Dei High School, a Roman Catholic high school in the New Monmouth section of Middletown.[11] While in high school, he was a volunteer firefighter for three years at the Middletown Township Fire Department. His first job was as a busboy at Perkins Pancake House.[12]

After high school Williams attended Brookdale Community College, after which he transferred to The Catholic University of America, and then The George Washington University.[13] He did not graduate, and instead interned with the administration of President Jimmy Carter. He now calls leaving college one of his “great regrets”.[14]Williams completed a total of 18 college credits.[15]

Early broadcast career

Williams first worked in broadcasting in 1981 at KOAM-TV in Pittsburg, Kansas. The following year he covered news in the Washington, D.C. area at TV station WTTG, then worked in Philadelphia for WCAU, then a CBS affiliate.[16] Beginning in 1987 he broadcast in New York City at WCBS. Williams joined NBC News in 1993, where he anchored the national Weekend Nightly News and was chief White House correspondent before serving as anchor and managing editor of The News With Brian Williams, broadcast on MSNBC and CNBC.[17]

Nightly News

Williams became anchor of NBC Nightly News on December 2, 2004, and his first year in that post was marked by coverage of two disasters: the Asian tsunami andHurricane Katrina. His and NBC’s Katrina coverage was widely praised, and Williams in particular was applauded “for venting his anger and frustration over the government’s failure to act quickly to help the victims.”[18] NBC News was awarded a Peabody Award for its coverage, the Peabody committee concluding that the staff of NBC Nightly News “exemplified the highest levels of journalistic excellence in reporting on Hurricane Katrina.”[3] NBC Nightly News also earned the George Polk Award[19] and the duPont-Columbia University Award for its Katrina coverage.[20]

In 2009, Williams was awarded the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism by Arizona State University.[21] At the announcement of the award, Cronkitesaid he was one of Williams’s “ardent admirers” and described him as a “fastidious newsman” who brought credit to the television news reporting profession.[21]

Since he began anchoring the ‘’Nightly News’’, Williams has received 12 News & Documentary Emmy Awards. For “outstanding” work as anchor and managing editor of the ‘’Nightly News’, he received one Emmy in 2006 (for ‘’Nightly News’’ coverage of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina),[22] two in 2007,[23] one in 2009,[24] two in 2010,[25] one in 2011,[26] one in 2013,[27] and one in 2014.[28] He also received a 2012 Emmy for his interview program ‘’Rock Center’’,[29] a 2013 Emmy for being one of the executive producers and editors of a documentary on the JFK Presidential Library & Museum,[27] and also shared a 2014 Emmy awarded for an NBC News Special on the Boston Marathon bombings.[28]

Based on the Nielsen ratings, from late 2008 Williams’ news broadcast consistently won more viewers than its two main rivals, ABC‘s World News Tonight and CBSEvening News.[30] In fact, from late 2008 to late 2014, NBC Nightly News beat the other two network programs in the Nielsen ratings all but one week.[30]

NBC pays him $10 million per year.[31] His recent scandal for inaccurate reporting will cost him $5 million in lost income according to CBS.[32]

Inaccurate Iraq war recollections

In February 2015 Williams recanted a story he had told about being aboard a helicopter hit by RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) fire and forced to land on March 24, 2003, during the U.S. invasion of Iraq.[33] His initial and subsequent reportings of the incident indicated that a helicopter in front of his was hit by the RPG. However, in a 2013 interview[34] and during the NBC Nightly News broadcast on January 30, 2015 Williams inaccurately recounted the incident, stating that it was the helicopter he was on that was “hit and crippled by enemy fire”.[35] His story was soon criticized by Lance Reynolds, a flight engineer who was on board one of the three helicopters that had been attacked.[36] Reynolds and other crew members said they were forced to make an emergency landing, and that it was a half hour to an hour later that Williams’ Chinook helicopter arrived on the scene.[33][37] Williams’ retelling of the helicopter incident in 2007 also differs from the recollections of on-site military personnel.[38] Williams said in the interview, “… I looked down the tube of an RPG that had been fired at us, and it hit the chopper in front of us.”[38]The statement varies with the recollections of crew on the helicopter that sustained RPG damage, that it was at least a half hour ahead of Williams’ craft, making it impossible for him to “look down the tube” of the RPG that damaged the other helicopter.[38]

On the February 4 broadcast of Nightly News, Williams apologized and said he had “made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago.”[39] NBC News President Deborah Turness announced on February 6 that there would be an internal probe into Williams’ Iraq reporting.[40] The next day Williams announced that he would step aside from anchoring the Nightly News broadcast for “several days” to remove a distraction during an NBC investigation of his actions.[41] The New York Times reported that Williams’ credibility dropped after he acknowledged the false recollections.[42]

On February 10, 2015, NBC News president Deborah Turness announced Williams’ suspension from NBC for six months without pay.[5] NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke stated that Williams’ actions were inexcusable and the suspension “severe and appropriate,” but that Williams also “deserves a second chance” to win back trust.[5]

Hurricane Katrina reporting questioned

Williams’ comments made in a 2006 interview concerning Hurricane Katrina have received critical scrutiny.[43][44] Williams said he stayed at a French Quarter hotel, the Ritz-Carlton on Canal Street, according to an ‘’NBC’’ source.[40] Williams said he looked out his hotel window and saw a dead body floating by face down.[40][43][44] The hotel manager at the time has said neither she nor her staff saw any floating bodies, though such bodies were seen elsewhere on Canal Street.[40][43][44][45] The French Quarter in fact received little flooding, but a New Orleans geographer states that Canal Street in front of the hotel was flooded.[46] AnAssociated Press news photographer also reported that flood waters in front of the Ritz could accommodate a flat-bottomed boat and that he photographed, a few blocks from the hotel, a dead body floating on Canal Street.[40]

Williams also said that he accidentally ingested flood water and came down with dysentery.[43][44] A 2005 study of the Katrina disaster by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that there were documented reports of “clusters of diarrheal disease” among those in evacuation centers, but no cases of dysentery.[47] Shortly after the storm a hotel guest said doctors at a makeshift clinic had treated what they believed was dysentery.[47][48]

According to a CNN news report, Williams also referred inconsistently to a suicide that took place inside the New Orleans Superdome at the time of Katrina.[49] It reported that in a 2005 television documentary Williams indicated he was not a witness to the suicide, stating, “We heard the story of a man killing himself, falling from the upper deck.”[49] In a 2014 interview Williams said, “We watched, all of us watched, as one man committed suicide.”[49]

Critics have also been skeptical about a 2014 Williams statement that the Ritz-Carlton was “overrun with gangs” when he stayed there.[50] Also, based on interviews conducted with Williams and other NBC News employees, Douglas Brinkley wrote that “armed gangs” broke into the hotel, “brandishing guns and terrorizing guests.”[51] Richard Rhodes, a Seattle business executive staying at the Ritz-Carlton at about the same time as Williams, said he saw no “criminal gangs” there but that “a kind of criminal element” had gotten inside. He said that “two off-duty police officers were running around keeping the peace,” and that there were “scary moments” during his time at the hotel.[52] News reports at that time described the area around the hotel as unsafe. In a September 2, 2005 report, CNN paraphrased a hotel guest about the security there as follows: “Off-duty police officers were guarding the hotel with shotguns to protect [guests] from bands of looters outside, she said.” An August 30, 2005 USA Today report describes looters ransacking jewelry and clothing stores on Canal Street near the Ritz-Carlton.[53]In addition, the city’s director of homeland security described some of the looting in the city as being done by “large groups of armed individuals.”[54] In contrast, on September 26, 2005 the New Orleans Time-Picayune reported that Katrina-related violence in the city had been overblown, and provided a representative anecdote involving the Ritz-Carlton.[55] New Orleans Police Chief Eddie Compass, whose daughter stayed at the hotel during the storm, had heard from “civilians” that “a band of armed thugs had gotten into the Ritz-Carlton hotel and started raping women,” including his daughter. Compass rushed to the Ritz, “only to find that although a group of men had tried to enter the hotel, they weren’t armed and were easily turned back by police.”[55]

Rock Center with Brian Williams

On Tuesday, October 4, 2011, it was announced that Williams would be the host of Rock Center with Brian Williams, a newsmagazine program premiering on Monday, October 31, 2011, at 10:00 pm Eastern, replacing the cancelled drama series The Playboy Club.[56] Named after the nickname of Rockefeller Center, theNew York City landmark where NBC Radio City Studios are located, the program would become the first new NBC News program to launch in primetime in nearly two decades.[57]

NBC cancelled Rock Center on May 10, 2013, after low ratings and having trouble finding a permanent time slot for the program. The last show aired on June 21, 2013.[58] Williams reportedly felt “insulted” by the program’s cancellation.[59]

Other programs

Williams frequently appears on The Daily Show as a celebrity guest interviewed by Jon Stewart. He appeared on the Weekend Update segment of Saturday Night Live on the season 32 premiere hosted by Dane Cook before hosting a season 33 episode on November 3, 2007, the last episode to air before the show went on a three-month hiatus due to the 2007-08 Writers’ Guild strike. With this episode, Williams is now the first and (so far) only network news anchor to host SNL.[60]

On February 22, 2010, while providing coverage of the Winter Olympics, Williams did a skit with Brian Williams, the Canadian sportscaster of CTV‘s on the CTV Olympic set.[61][62] Some in the media dubbed this the new “Battle of the Brians,” as NBC’s Williams compared his own modest set to CTV’s expensive Olympic studio.[63]

Williams regularly appears on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where he slow jams the news of the previous week as Fallon sings and reiterates what Williams says, with The Roots providing the musical backing. A mash-up video created by Fallon, where he appears to rap to hip-hop instrumentals, became viral within a few hours.[64] He has also made numerous appearances on Late Show with David Letterman despite it being on CBS, a competing network. During an appearance on July 26, 2011, Williams demonstrated a skilled vocal impersonation of TV personality Regis Philbin. Williams has also appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brienwhere he took part in numerous skits and interviews.

… And then I pull off my mask, and I’m alizard person, too. Blackout. End of episode.
—Williams on 30 Rock, proposing a new NBC show to Jack Donaghy[65]

Williams also frequently made guest appearances on NBC’s television comedy 30 Rock as a caricatured version of himself. In the episode “The Ones“, he’s seen at home receiving proposition calls meant for Tracy Jordan. In “Audition Day“, he auditions to be a new TGS cast member. He also is seen once on the show taunting Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon. In April 2012, on the West Coast installment of the 30 Rock season 6 live show, Williams portrayed a news anchor covering the Apollo 13 story.

Williams appeared on Sesame Street in a 2007 episode, announcing the word of the day, squid, in a special broadcast. Williams appeared on Sesame Street again in a 2008 episode reporting for Sesame Street Nightly News about the Mine-itis outbreak where he becomes a victim of it. He also was the host of the 2009 Annual Sesame Workshop Benefit Gala.

In May 2012, Williams spoke at the George Washington University commencement on the National Mall.

He was the commencement speaker for Elon University‘s graduating class of 2013 of which his son Douglas was a member.

Personal life

Williams married his wife, Jane Gillan Williams (née Stoddard) at the First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan, Connecticut on June 7, 1986.[66] He currently lives in New Canaan, Connecticut with his wife.[67] His daughter Allison is an actress who currently stars in HBO‘s Girls. He received an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Bates College in 2005.[68]

Washington DC rally, Tea Party Express, September 12, 2009

The American people marching in Washington D.C. were shouting “Where’s the press?”.

Good question.

The major networks ABC, CBS, and NBC apparently could not find the time from their worshiping of Obama to cover the two million tea party patriot march on Washington, D.C.

So, what will the American people do about that?

Simple, watch FOX.

Expect more layoffs at the major networks as advertisers switch to FOX and the Glenn Beck show, where there are viewers not worshippers.

Looks like new media is cleaning old media’s clock.

Capitalists create wealth and jobs.

Socialists redistribute wealth and create unemployment!

Celebrating the 9/12 rallies; Update: Turnout estimated at 2 million

By Michelle Malkin

“…I can’t make it to Washington DC today for the national 9/12 march, but I’m with all the marchers in spirit.

It’s been an unprecedented year for limited government activism. It would never have been possible without the early initiative of grass-roots leaders in the #tcot community on Twitter, Smart Girl Politics #DontGo — and concerned moms like Keli Carender and Amanda Grosserode who stood up in their communities against reckless spending in Washington before anyone was listening. Before the cable news was paying attention. Before it became fashionable for politicians to latch on.

Activists were derided as amateurs who couldn’t turn out a crowd. Then they were smeared as corporate shills. They were criticized for not having a coherent message. Then they were mocked for ideological single-mindedness. They are resented by professional strategists who accuse them of organizing empty protests that won’t translate into electoral gains. But the movement has given birth to a new generation of movers and shakers who have rejected establishment partisan politics for nimble, Internet-facilitated, issues-based advocacy.

The success of the Tea Party movement and its allies/successors shows that there’s no monopoly on “community organizing.”

You are the change we’ve been praying for.

March on!

Yes, the picture is real, nutroots

By Michelle Malkin  



“…I was offline for most of the afternoon and early evening — and just learned that the nutroots are claiming that the screenshot of the 9/12 march in D.C. that I posted — taken from a livecam of the event that I linked to here — is somehow “fake.”

The claim is that the shot came from the Kennedy procession or a previous left-wing protest and that the flag at half-mast proves that it was “fake.”

Newsflash for the clueless: Flags were still at half-mast earlier today in honor of the murder victims of the 9/11 jihadi attacks.

Guess the 9/11-was-an-inside jobbers are still that much in denial.

The spark that has triggered rebellion

By Ellen Sauerbrey
“…They are coming to protest the most fiscally reckless and irresponsible White House and Congress in our history.  They understand that the U.S. is on the road to fiscal ruin with massive spending – soaring deficits and mountains of debt that can never be paid off except by running the printing press, generating phony money, creating inflation that ruins lives, and allowing government bills to be paid with worthless dollars.  

They are protesting Congress and the White House crafting new ways to bankrupt America — through cap and trade, nationalized health insurance, pork barrel earmarks, and new across-the-board regulations on the financial industry.
They are protesting that people, who have never even run a candy store, are taking over the running of our auto industry, our banks, and other financial institutions.  And they are protesting the massive shadow government of unaccountable czars layered on top of the existing government bureaucracy.
Most of all, they are protesting because they see the capitalist system being dismantled day by day and the nation heading pell-mell down the road to socialism. …”

‘Tea party’ movement takes protest to Washington

By Andrea Stone, USA TODAY

“…The conservative activists who staged taxpayer tea parties last spring and packed town-hall-style meetings to rail against “Obama care” this summer plan to march here Saturday to protest what they call out-of-control government spending.


Encouraged by conservative commentators such as Fox’s Glenn Beck and organized virtually on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites, the march will constitute “the largest gathering of fiscal conservatives ever,” says Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks. The advocacy group led by former House majority leader Dick Armey is planning the event, although other organizers say theirs is an unprompted movement.


“There is no leader. This is so incredibly organic and grass-roots,” says Mark Williams, a conservative talk show host who spoke from El Paso during a stop on the Tea Party Express, a 34-city, 7,000-mile bus tour that began in Sacramento Aug. 28 and ends here Saturday.


FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe says “tens of thousands” will march. “They are opposed to President Obama’s multitrillion-dollar government takeover of health care, opposed to his massive tax on energy … and opposed to spending money we don’t have to bailing out homeowners and auto companies,” he says. “Our motto is ‘Government goes to those who show up.’ “


Kibbe says it is “quite possible” most marchers didn’t show up to vote on Election Day because they were “disgusted” by the choice between Obama and Republican John McCain.


Now, many have heeded the call first put out in February by CNBC’s Rick Santelli for “tea party” protests of the federal mortgage bailout that has grown into a movement that offers adherents talking points to take to congressional town hall meetings.


Saturday’s march grew from Beck’s idea for a 9/12 Project to bring back the unity of the day after the 2001 terrorist attacks. That’s when, according to its mission statement, “we were not obsessed with Red States, Blue States or political parties.”


More than two dozen conservative organizations, including the National Taxpayers Union, have signed on. They say their cause crosses party lines — Beck’s website calls it “a non-political movement” — but those marching from near the White House to Capitol Hill appear united in one thing: their disdain for the Democrats who control Washington. …”

GE–General Electric Plugged Puppet President Pinocchio–P3–Time To Unplug Jeff Immelt and GE!

Posted on April 28, 2009. Filed under: Blogroll, Climate, Economics, Employment, Energy, Investments, People, Politics, Quotations, Raves, Science, Strategy, Technology, Video | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |


Obama’s Watergate?: GE Using CNBC, MSNBC to Promote Cap-and-Trade – OReilly


Glenn Beck & Bill O’Reilly: GE, NBC & MSNBC in Corruption Racket with Barack Obama Admin?


Glenn Beck: GE [NBC News/MSNBC/CNBC/Gov’t Contracts] Merges With The Obama Administration


GE [NBC/MSNBC/CNBC] CEO Joins Obama’s Team


GE Shareholder Meeting: Investors of Tanking Co. Outraged over NBC, MSNBC Bias




General Electric used both NBC and MSNBC to promote the candidacy of now President Barack Obama.

The usual description was that NBC and MSNBC were in the tank for Obama.

Both NBC and MSNBC continue to promote both President Obama and the radical socialist Democratic Party by denigrating their opponents in both political parties. 

The most recent example was the Tea Parties across the nation organized by individuals in protest of the bailouts, stimulus package, skyrocketing deficits and the proposed new cap and trade carbon dioxide tax.

Rachel Maddow On The Tea Parties–She Slammed Them With An Offensive Label–”Tea Bagging”–Throw Tasteless Double Entrendre Maddow Off The Air!

Why? Jeff Immelt and General Electric wanted President Obama to get behind the cap and trade carbon dioxide tax so that their company would benefit from government contracts for alternative energy from wind turbines.

President Obama fully supports the proposed cap and trade carbon dioxide tax.

Cap and Trade Carbon Dioxide Tax: Gore’s and Obama’s Revenge on The American People–Let Them Freeze and Sweat!


The Cap and Trade Carbon Dioxide Tax–The Radical Socialist Goal–Turning Your Lights Out!


The reason given for this new carbon dioxide emissions tax is that by limiting carbon dioxide emmissions, man can stop global warming.

This is the government funded junk science of computer climate models promoted by Al Gore and the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Unfortunately for Al Gore and the IPCC the observed evidence does not support the theory that man’s carbon dioxide emissions is the cause of global warming.


Professor Fred Singer on Climate Change pt 1


Professor Fred Singer on Climate Change pt 2


The exact opposite is true. Naturally rising temperatures cause a rise in carbon emissions over time.

Man is not the primary or even secondary cause or driver of global warming.

The many natural causes of global warming include sun activity variabliity, cosmic rays, clouds, watervapor, volcanic erruptions, just to name a few.

In order to justify the cap and trade carbon dioxide tax the radical socialist Democratic Party need to convice the American people that humans are responsible for global warming or climate change and not natural causes.

The majority of the American people believe that man is not causing global warming.

Also the majority of the American people do not support a new tax on energy — the cap and trade carbon dioxide emissions tax.

The American people do not want to pay more for electricity, heating oil and gasoline.

The Americdan people do not want to pay more for all the goods and services that need electricity and gasoline to be produced.

The American people do not want to pay more for everything they purchase as a direct result of huge bailouts and deficits leading to rising general prices or inflation.

The nationwide Tea Parties and End The Fed rallies were organized at the grassroots level by individuals exercising their rights of free speech and assembly.

The American people attending these events are tired of being betrayed by elites of both political parties, Democrats and Republicans.

The American people want the unconstitutional bailouts to stop, a balanced budget, no new taxes and the past tax cuts made permanent.

The American people do not want their children and grandchildren to be burdened with the massive growth in the national debt by skyrocketing deficits.

President Obama promised change.

Instead he conned the American people.

The executives and directors of General Electric and the financial institutions on Wall Street  such as  J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup, and Goldman Sachs provided candidate Obama with huge campaign contributions in exchange for his support of massive government bailouts of these same financial institutions and government contracts and subsidies for electricity produced by “so-called” alternative energy, namely wind and solar power to be funded by the new cap and trade carbon dioxide emissions tax.

Since General Electric owns both NBC and MSNBC with Microsoft, Jeff Immelt and General Electric made sure that both candidate and President Obama received positive coverage while his opponents were either ignored or received negative coverage.

This situation is called pay for play.

The company supporters of Obama paid campaign contributions from their company’s executives, directors, and employees in exchange for government bailouts, expenditures,  subsidies, contracts, and policies that would directly benefit their companies.

Who pays the bill?

The American people in higher taxes, higher prices for goods and services, lower purchasing power of their dollars, and lower values of their investments and retirement plans

Barack Obama and his pay and play pals are part and parcel of the Crime of the Century–criminals–robbing the American people–by using the Federal Government Treasury and the Federal Reserve–to facilitate the crime.

Do not purchase any goods or services produced by companies and banks that accept bailouts.

I will no longer be purchasing cars or trucks produced by General Motors or goods and services produced by General Electric.

As far as I am concerned they should change their names to Government Motors and Government Electric.

Both brands have lost their luster by forgetting who brought them their success in the past–the American people.

Damn shame.

General Electric forgot to dance with the one that brought you.

Obama’s hidden bailout of General Electric

By: Timothy P. Carney
Examiner Columnist

“…While many companies hire lobbyists to win earmarks, General Electric’s unmatched lobbying force has secured a tax increase — or its equivalent — in President Barack Obama’s budget.

Labeled “climate revenues” and totaling $646 billion over eight years, this line item in Obama’s budget has inspired confidence in GE Chief Executive Officer Jeff Immelt. As Immelt put it in a letter this week, he believes that the Obama administration will be a profitable “financier” and “key partner.” …”


“…This isn’t altruism or public relations. GE has started a joint venture called Greenhouse Gas Services, which invests in — and hopes to manage the trade in — greenhouse gas credits. But these investments and this trading floor are of basically no use and nearly no value without government restrictions on greenhouse gases.

Hence the lobbying, buttressed by generous campaign contributions: Employees and executives gave $1.35 million to politicians in the past election while GE’s political action committee shelled out $1.55 million. About 64 percent of this $2.9 million went to Democrats, with Obama easily the top recipient of GE money.

Obama’s budget includes the payoff, promising to start a multibillion-dollar greenhouse gas industry by 2012. In a letter this week, GE’S Immelt told shareholders that current events present an “opportunity of a lifetime,” because “capitalism will be ‘reset.’ ”

Immelt wrote: “The interaction between government and business will change forever. In a reset economy, the government will be a regulator; and also an industry policy champion, a financier, and a key partner.”

In short, GE plans to get rich by being one of the government’s closest partners — which it has always been, thanks to its unmatched lobbying efforts.

The environmentalist at this point might respond, “Well, good for GE. if they can get rich while helping the planet, more power to them.” But this ignores important issues. First, restraining greenhouse gas emissions will cost Americans dearly. Gas, electricity and heating prices will all go up. The prices of manufactured and shipped goods will go up. A Clemson University report on similar cap-and-trade proposals forecast a 1 percent decline in he U.S. gross domestic product by 2015 if they were implemented. …”


United States Climate Action Partnership

“…United States Climate Action Partnership (USCAP) is a group of businesses and leading environmental organizations that have come together to call on the federal government to quickly enact strong national legislation to require significant reductions of greenhouse gas emissions. USCAP has issued a landmark set of principles and recommendations to underscore the urgent need for a policy framework on climate change. More >  …”


GE’s Immelt backs Obama

In any event, Immelt’s rosy outlook may not be shared by his fellow CEOs.

Most CEOs surveyed by the Business Roundtable said they see no prospect of a recovery in the next six months. I wonder if Immelt will be able to last that long. …”  





Immelt Says GE Is Braced for a Storm





“… General Electric Co. Chief Executive Jeffrey Immelt said the company is preparing for a once-in-a-generation “reset” as it tries to weather what he called the worst recession in 80 years.  

Speaking at GE’s annual meeting Wednesday, Mr. Immelt outlined planned changes at the conglomerate, and tried to appease investors disheartened by the company’s recent performance

The meeting came after a rough year for GE, largely because of growing losses inside its finance unit, which had been providing roughly half of the Fairfield, Conn., firm’s profits. GE shares are down 63% in the past year, though they gained 0.9% to close at $11.80 in 4 p.m. trading Wednesday.

Many of the roughly 600 attending shareholders were upset about GE’s plan to cut its dividend by 68% for the second half of the year, to 10 cents per quarter. The dividend cut, announced earlier this year, is the company’s first since the Great Depression.

Chief Financial Officer Keith Sherin said the dividend cut “was the toughest decision we have ever wrestled with. We had lots of debates with the board. In the end, the decision to protect the franchise was the right decision.” …”
