The Ceeb's "Avuncular Old Lefist Coot" Michael Enright Disses Corporate Deadbeats

The don't pay any taxes!, he fulminates:
“When you are hunched over your dining room table in coming weeks,” said [Enright] “buried in paper, your stomach in knots, and your head swimming, here’s a sobering fact: 26 of the most powerful and profitable Fortune 500 companies paid zero dollars in federal income tax for the five years 2008 to 2012.” Boeing, General Electric, Verizon — all paid “nothing” in income taxes. “And the craziest part,” added Mr. Enright, “it wasn’t illegal. No one is going to jail.”
Here's another "sobering thought," one which the old leftist coot chose not to share with his similarly-minded  audience--in 2012, Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook also paid no income taxes.

I guess in oldcootworld, though, that doesn't count.
