Political donation records suggest that this may not be true of NBC.

Comcast's employee donations
show $200K to Obama; $20K to Romney.

GE affiliates employee donations
show that the three biggest-donating divisions of NBC gave 93%, 72%, and 
85% of their donations to Democratic candidates.

Also, GE CEO Jeff Immelt joined the President's Council of Economic 
Advisors in January.
