Morning Joe Breaks Out Into General Electric Infomercial (VIDEO)

With General Electric's stock price hovering somewhere in the vicinity of seven and a half dollars, the possibility of the company becoming a fully-owned subsidiary of the Sheinhardt Wig Company or being devoured by krakens, in accordance with the prophesy, has never been greater. That's probably why General Electric employee Erin Burnett went on General Electric's Meet The Press to tell General Electric employee David Gregory that right now, it would be nice if the media stopped using such alarming terms as "carnage, apocalypse, bleeding, hemorrhaging, [and] crash." That's also probably why MSNBC's improv comedy troupe, Morning Joe, broke out in an impromptu infomercial for General Electric today on the air.

SCARBOROUGH: The thing is, while Jack's children and grandchildren are disappointed in GE's stock level, I'm actually excited for my children and grandchildren. This is how recessions work and this is how the market turns recessions around, into rallies, because I'm going to start investing heavily in General Electric because they've actually created things over the past twenty-five years. It is not some Wall Street organization that just shuffled around money and played shall games. And Mike, we know the future for General Electric, it's our parent company, I know. I'm just saying, that's the type of company I can build an economy on over the next twenty-five years. There are so many other companies that are collapsing because they don't have the fundamentals right.

BARNICLE: You know what the key to what you just said is? GE makes things.

SCARBOROUGH: They make things. America has stopped making things, for the most part. GE makes things.

I believe the line you are looking for is "GE brings good things to life!" Anyway, SAVE OUR BLUTHS!
