    I wonder why Bloomberg didn't do an article on G.E., who was charged with the same offense by the Securities and Exchange Commission??? Could it be that they ignored G.E. because they are an Obama favorite child ???
    Yeah, and OJ wasn't guilty and no innocent people are ever jailed. In the US judicial system which is much more closely tied to political entities than most, money can buy verdicts.Apples and oranges - GE was doing bribes in Iraq. Koch Brothers are selling to Iran - a country that US firms are expressly forbidden to sell to and violating a UN ruling as well. Very different.

    Sorry to break this to you, but this was a European company that hired/fired a European. The judge and court was in Europe. The U.S. judicial system had nothing to do with it.


    Apples and oranges - GE was doing bribes in Iraq.
    Koch Brothers are selling to Iran - a country that US firms are expressly forbidden to sell to and violating a UN ruling as well. Very different.
    GE was also doing business with Iran..........

    General Electric becomes the second U.S. company in a week to announce it will no longer seek new business in Iran. American companies are forbidden by law from doing business in Iran, but many have gotten around the law by working through foreign subsidiaries.

    Got anything else ??

    Here is another story you won't be seeing on FoxNews: BBC News - Nobel prize for economics awarded to two Americans
    The reason? These two economists go the award for proving that the economic interventions that Obama has been pushing and GOP has been obstructing work.
    To bad you didn't offer a bet ...... The Nobel prize story was on Fox as soon as it was announced.

    That Koch Brothers is still doing this and the right isn't willing to condemn them for doing this speaks volumes about the ethics of the right.

    Re: Koch Brothers Flout Law With Secret Iran Sales

    Novel prize is useless anymore as its political agenda had them giving Obama an award two months after him taking office, and he had done nothing......pfft...File it the who the hell cares section.
    I would agree that's the case with the Nobel Peace Prize. Not for the other Nobel prizes. All you have to do is look down the list to there is no lack of "conservative" economists.

    Admitting I was wrong on this one. I did look before I spoke. It is on Fox, it is just buried real deep

    Funny, it was on the first page of the World News on my Fox News app.

    No, Koch stopped about the same time as GE and dozens of other companies that were selling products to Iran.

    Your excuses for GE, while condemning Koch speaks volumes about the ethics of the left.

    It is in FoxNews reports of news from other sources in two places on FoxNews website - one in US news from AP and one in Market news from Reuters. I was not able to find something written by FoxNews on their site. Free free to find it for me if you wish.
