During Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, NBC’s chief environmental affairs correspondent Anne Thompson enthusiastically promoted the global warming agreement between the United States and China that was announced on Wednesday, but fretted that Republicans were “already putting up roadblocks if congressional action is needed.” Anchor Brian Williams hyped that it was “[a] surprise announcement” and “a history making deal” that will “greatly reduce carbon emissions.” Those generous descriptions segued into Thompson’s report as she mentioned that deal between the two nations that were responsible for “producing 39 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases last year.”

Nets Ignore Far-Left Agenda of ‘Fringe’ Mob’s Attack on U.S. Sailors in Turkey

 

ABC, CBS, and NBC’s evening newscasts on Wednesday glossed over the radical left-wing ideology of the Turkish protesters who assaulted three U.S. sailors in Istanbul earlier in the day.

NYT Writer Defends Gruber on MSNBC; Voter Expectations on Health Care Are ‘Completely Incoherent’

 

During a discussion on MSNBC’s The Cycle about the disparaging comments ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber made about the law’s passage and the “stupidity” of voters, New York Times writer and substitute Cycle co-host Josh Barro sought to defend him by blasting the expectations that Americans have about health care as “completely incoherent” and lying was the only solution to make them happy. Barro told fellow panelists and guest Lauren Fox of National Journal that “what drives me crazy about this story” is “Jonathan Gruber was right. Public opinion on health care policy is just completely incoherent.”

Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of Meet the Press, just released his latest book The Stranger: Barack Obama In the White House chronicling the Democrat’s first six years as president.

Not only does Chuck Todd concede that MSNBC is openly leftist, the NBC host writes that “perhaps most frustrating to Team Obama was that even their allies weren’t always allies.”

 

Obama Set to Award Medal of Freedom to Media Ally Tom Brokaw

 

On Monday, the White House announced that President Obama would award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to former NBC Nightly News anchor and current special correspondent Tom Brokaw – among other 2014 recipients. Today news anchor Natalie Morales touted the announcement on Tuesday, noting: “Obama said in a statement, these citizens have made extraordinary contributions to our country and the world.” Brokaw has repeatedly taken the opportunity to boost or defend Barack Obama throughout his presidency. That made it no surprise that the commander-in-chief would want to reward such a loyal media supporter.
