An Unmentionable

Last week it was first reported by the New York Times that General Electric Co. earned $14.2 billion in profits worldwide, including $5.1 billion in the United States, but paid nothing to the United States Treasury in federal taxes. "NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams" failed to mention this tidbit of information about its parent company, presumably deeming the item insufficiently newsworthy.
