    NBC "News" is perfectly demonstrating why the American people distrust the media's professed belief in facts, or their supposed approach of holding a story until they have enough documented evidence. The latest shameless exhibit? Championing former "Apprentice" star and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman's new "tell-all" book in which she claims President Donald Trump is a racist and a bigot. She claims that she has heard a tape recording (which she did not produce) of Trump saying the N-word on the set of his NBC reality show. In the book, Newman describes hearing about the tape but not hearing...

    Omarosa Manigault-Newman appeared irritable and fumed at Savannah Guthrie before abruptly cutting off an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show on Monday morning, claiming she had another interview to get to minutes after proclaiming, “I’ve got all the time you need.” Manigault-Newman was on the morning show to share a recording of a conversation she says she had with President Trump the day after she was fired by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. Guthrie began the interview by playing the recording and plugging Manigault-Newman’s new book, “Unhinged,” but things quickly turned awkward. Guthrie asked the former “Apprentice” star if...

The story involves varying allegations against senior NBC News executives, and relates to alleged misconduct from years ago as well as more current allegations against network brass. One source told Mediaite that executives at NBC News are “panicked” by the reporting. NBC News did not provide comment. The Beast’s reporting comes in a tumultuous year for NBC News.

    This week marks Andrea Mitchell’s 40th anniversary at NBC News, and the network has been filled with tributes to her. But when it comes to gushing, it will be hard to top Willie Geist’s effort, which aired during Mitchell’s MSNBC show today: “You are one of a very small handful of icons in our business, about whom a young journalist thinks: I can’t even believe I work in the same news division where she works. It always has been a privilege, and that awe has never gone away.” The tribute ended with a still shot of Mitchell warmly holding hands...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Even the fake news media’s pieces admitting media bias subconsciously display the media’s bias. – NBC has a piece at what it calls its “Think” website this morning that actually admits that the media is biased against conservatives. Yippeee!!! Happy days are here again!!!! All the fake reporters have realized the error of their news-faking ways and are going to start reporting real news again!!!! Ok, don’t get too excited. This isn’t that, not remotely close to it. The piece is actually just another hit piece on President Trump and his supporter...

    In a fawning profile for NBC News Foreign Correspondent Andrea Mitchell for the latest issue of InStyle magazine, colleague and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd gushed that the veteran liberal reporter was “like the LeBron James of foreign correspondents.” He added: “It’s the same awe that I have watching him play after all these years. Why are you still this good? Aren’t you tired?” On Tuesday’s Today show, correspondent Stephanie Gosk touted the article: “The magazine hits news stands on July 6. It includes profiles of dozens of women, from Serena Williams to Aly Raisman to our own Andrea...

    Not that this will come as a surprise, but it is entertaining to watch NBC’s John Heilemann gleefully explain how “we” have a great opportunity to bludgeon President Trump and the GOP with the faux crisis at the border. In a mere 47 seconds, he gives the game away on a couple of fronts:

    NBC was slammed on Twitter Wednesday after it conducted an internal investigation into how the network handled allegations of sexual harassment against Matt Lauer and found there is "no evidence" any NBC senior executives knew about Lauer's behavior. Lauer was fired from NBC in November after allegations of sexual harassment became public and scandal permeated the widely watched "Today" morning show, the Washington Post reports. "We found no evidence indicating that any NBC News or Today Show leadership, HR or others in positions of authority in the News Division received any complaints about LauerÂ’s workplace behavior prior to Nov. 27,...

    White House chief of staff John F. Kelly hit back at a media report Monday that accused him of calling President Trump an “idiot.” “I spend more time with the president than anyone else and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship,” Mr. Kelly said in a statement. “He always knows where I stand and he and I both know this story is total BS.” NBC News, citing current and former White House officials, reported that Mr. Kelly has referred to the president as an “idiot” multiple times and views himself as the savior of the country.

    NBC "News" ^ | February 5, 2018 | by Patrisse Cullors
    Trayvon sparked a movement that stands up to fascism and white supremacy. We need to hold him in our memories. February 5th marks five years and 339 days since Trayvon Martin’s memorial service; it would also be his 23rd birthday. The day is necessarily somber. Nearly six years ago, Trayvon’s death at the hands of white supremacist vigilante violence indicated the beginning of an escalating attack on Black lives and demanded that this nation confront its overtly racist past and present. The urgency of #Justice4TrayvonMartin turned into a global urgency to fight for Black lives — one which persists today....

    Katie Couric has finally broken her silence over Matt Lauer’s sexual assault accusations and his firing from the “Today” show. “The whole thing has been very painful for me,” Couric told People Magazine. “The accounts I’ve read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it’s completely unacceptable that any women at the ‘Today’ show experienced this kind of treatment.” Couric co-hosted NBC’s “Today” show with Lauer for 15 years, but left in May 2006 to anchor “CBS Evening News.” “I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left,” she continued. “I think...

    Daily Caller ^ | 1-1-2018 | Amber Athey
    MSNBC Host Chris Matthews runs an at times openly derisive and brazenly sexist news operation that has led at least some staffers to describe themselves as victims of “battered wives syndrome,” according to three of his show’s guests and two former producers who spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller. Two former NBC producers independently alleged Matthews would rate the looks of his female guests on a scale and said Matthews was so abusive that staff joked about being battered women. The interviews in total paint Matthews as a tyrant liable to fly off the handle at the slightest mistake, who...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had some fun with NBC reporters who questioned her on the tax plan and the government funding agreement. “Hopefully you’re one of the NBC reporters that’s getting one of those bonuses,” Sanders quipped to NBC White House reporter Kristen Welker on Thursday after a group of reporters asked her questions on the White House driveway. “Not yet,” Welker replied. Comcast announced on Wednesday that their employees, which includes MSNBC, CNBC, and NBC, would get a $1,000 bonus after the tax plan passed. The statement from Comcast read: Based on the passage of tax reform...

    Donald Trump this morning tweeted another love letter to Fox News Channel’s morning show Fox and Friends, faux-asking “Was @foxandfriends just named the most influential show in news?” On Wednesday, web site Mediaite had named the FNC morning show the Most Influential In News Media for 2017, topping a list that also included, in reverse order, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Matt Drudge, FNC star Sean Hannity, and CNN chief Jeff Zucker. Mistaking Mediaite’s “most influential” for “best,” Trump crowed that the Trump News Network morning show hosts “deserve it” and that “the many Fake News Hate Shows should study your formula...

    "I've always heard stories about, you know, him kind of fooling around or whatever," Brzezinski said. Scarborough said he attended a Friars Club event several years ago for a roast of Lauer, and said many jokes were made about his sexual pursuits at work. "The most powerful people in media, and everybody that came up were making fun of Matt Lauer, not pushing himself on people, but the whole thing was, he does his show and then he has sex with people, with employees," Scarborough said.

    It wasn’t just the executives that knew, either. Variety’s sources claim at least one of Lauer’s co-hosts knew full well what was happening, a point that might require answers from the women who claimed on air to know nothing about Lauer’s actions:
