If you want to do something about carbon dioxide emissions, then you ought to build nuclear power plants. They donít emit any carbon dioxide. They donít emit greenhouse gases.
Vice President Dick Cheney to Chris Matthews on General Electric owned MSNBC property, Hardball, August 2, 2001
There is an allegation making the rounds that Jack Welch actually intervened in NBC's decision to call the election for George Bush....I would hope the allegation is untrue. If it were, it would be absolutely inappropriate. But I've been told that Mr. Welch's actions were observed by others and in fact were even captured on tape, filmed by NBC's advertising and promotions department. It is difficult for me to believe it is true, but it seems there is a simple way to either confirm or debunk this allegation. I would like to have you... assure us that we would get that tape."
United States Representative Henry A. Waxman (D - CA) in a letter to NBC President and Chief Operating Officer, Andy Lack, August 2, 2001
Almost all of our shared values are inspiring, uplifting, positive. But one is not - our visceral hatred of bureaucracy stems from the evil and harm it wreaks on the spirit of a company, any institution, and its people, and its dilutive effect on every other value which we believe. Bureaucracy hates change, could care less about the customer, loves complexity, is afraid of speed and incapable of it, and inspires no one.
Jack Welch, Chairman of the Board of General Electric, Annual Shareowners Meeting, Atlanta, GA April 25, 2001
Contrary to the Vice Presidentís statements, we are not interested in obtaining his daily schedule or reviewing communications involving the President, the Vice President, the Presidentís senior advisors and others...We are simply asking for facts that the Vice President, as Chair of the National Energy Policy Development Group, or others representing the group, would be in a position to provide to GAO.
The United States General Accounting Office, following a refusal by Vice President Cheney to reveal names, costs, procedures or activities relating to the National Energy Policy Development Group.
