Xerox Funds Latest MSNBC '30 Seconds To Know' Initiative

On Tuesday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Xerox is funding MSNBC’s new “30 Seconds to Know” initiative. It’s MSNBC’s version of VOX which offers 30 second videos of MSNBC pundits explaining the news. Clearly, reasonable, restrained MSNBC journalists are the best people for that job.

Ursala Burns, the CEO of Xerox, as the Free Beacon pointed out, is a staunch supporter and financial donor to the Democrat Party and is ranked as one of the worst CEO’s in the country.

It has yet to be seen if MSNBC’s “30 Seconds to Know” program will actually take off or accomplish anything, but it should give pause for concern knowing that this is just another example in a long list of corporations led by left-wing CEO’s fueling left-wing media and politics.

The webpage for MSNBC’s “30 Seconds to Know” features the Xerox logo and keeps a running sidebar of tweets from Xerox. Currently in the “Speak Out” portion of the site there’s a poll on the website asking, “Do you think the House could successfully vote to impeach Obama?”

The Media Research Center's Brent Baker has documented the ties that MSNBC hosts and contributors have to the Obama Administration in one way or another.
