Instead of treating Hillary Clinton as a possible presidential candidate who must be vetted, NBC framed her as a sympathetic victim of a "brutal" and personal attack on Monday's Nightly News.
Andrea Mitchell bemoaned that "inflammatory excerpts" of "once-private papers" of Clinton's close friend were published on an "anti-Clinton website."
Brian Williams said the report was an opportunity for an ugly GOP ambush.
These papers have been available for years. Why shouldn’t they be used to help vet a possible candidate for the highest political office in the land?
In a true world Andrea Mitchell and Brian Williams would be recognized as the biased news readers they are and NBC would be recognized as the most politically biased commercial network.
