    In the run up to the Democratic National Convention NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday held a panel discussion to determine what the event would mean for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Since the topic for discussion had to do with Clinton NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell got very excited and began to prattle on, “Well, what they are going to do is— they’re going to have gauzy films, the same kind of films you saw in 1992, the same producers.” She did the same thing when gushing about a staged photo-op for Clinton and President Obama on July 3. “They will have...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” radio talk show host Glenn Beck said if Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who he campaigned for throughout the Republican presidential primary, endorsed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump that would mean he can not trust anyone in Washington D.C. Beck said, “I will tell you if that if Ted Cruz comes out and —what is it Monday or Tuesday night when he gives his speech and he endorses, even a soft endorsement of Donald Trump I will officially have no person in that I can trust says what they mean and mean what they say.”

    Crisis Managed is not Crisis Ended If you tuned in Sunday morning to see the “inevitable” candidate’s Meet The Press interview with Chuck Todd, you likely noticed the moment of “the big fail.” Yes, the whole segment was another in a long line of Hillary Clinton’s poor performances, but one question really stood out as problematic. Check Todd acknowledged that Democrats are nervous over Hillary’s seemingly endless scandals, and he offered her the chance to reassure them that there was nothing more to the email story:
  • Hillary Supporters All Have Suspiciously Identical Feelings About Meet the Press Interview

    In a massive coincidence, every single Hillary Clinton staffer and surrogate who watched the Democratic presidential candidate’s Meet the Press interview had the exact same thoughts, sometimes using identical language.... Now at first, it may appear that these responses were all coordinated in some fashion. However, it would be against the law for campaign officials to coordinate with a pro-Clinton Super PAC director like Brad Woodhouse. So clearly it’s a coincidence that his tweet was identical to Clinton staffer Karen Finney’s.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Sunday that there is a "very severe problem" with some Muslims, and declined to say whether he'd support a Muslim president of the United States. In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Trump said that he feels "strongly that Muslims are excellent. I know so many Muslims that are such fabulous people. But he continued,"We can be politically correct and say there is no problem whatsoever, but the fact is, there is a problem with some and it's a very severe problem and it's a problem that's taking place all over the world.

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell came out in support of President Obama’s agreement to curb Iran’s nuclear program, calling it a “pretty good deal.” Powell, a retired general who led the State Department under GOP President George W. Bush, said he had vigorously studied the deal and listened to arguments from both supporters and opponents. “My judgment after balancing those two sets of information is that it’s a pretty good deal,” Powell declared on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “The great concern from the opposition is that we’re leaving open a lane for Iran to create a nuclear weapon in...

    Former Secretary of State and Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell backed the Iran deal on Sunday. The retired statesman, who played a key role in the push for war in Iraq, later supported Barack Obama for president. Powell made his announcements on NBC News’ Meet the Press on Sunday. “My judgment…is that it’s a pretty good deal.” Powell said that while Iran could continue working toward a nuclear weapon when the deal expires, the agreement would at least slow that down. “We have stopped this highway race that they were going down.” Powell added that “they get nothing”...
  • Dept. of Homeland Security: State Dept. never told us about Hillary Clinton’s secret server either

    Readers may be tempted to respond Join the club, but this is — in the words of the Obama administration’s most eloquent figure, a big effin’ deal. The White House has demanded more authority and jurisdiction over private networks as part of its push to improve cybersecurity in the US, even while it has botched its own network security at OPM, the Pentagon, and even the State Department under both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. The Department of Homeland Security is tasked with auditing the security of federal government networks, but no one at State ever told DHS about...

    The latest news show to benefit from Donald Trump is Meet the Press. Capping off a stretch of several strong weeks for the NBC show, Chuck Todd's interviews with the Republican presidential candidate (his only appearance on the Sunday shows) and Sen. Bernie Sanders drove ratings to its biggest audience since February 2014. That easily makes it the most-watched since Todd took over from David Gregory last August. Meet the Press averaged 3.612 million viewers on Sunday, averaging 739,000 more than ABC's This Week and 775,000 more than Face the Nation. Compared to last year when the struggling Meet the...

    Donald Trump went back and forth with NBC host Chuck Todd on Sunday in one of his most combative interviews since announcing his presidential candidacy earlier this summer. In a 37-minute conversation on "Meet The Press," Todd pushed Trump on a wide range of issues with which the real-estate magnate would presumably be confronted if he won the presidency in 2016. It forced Trump to be on the defensive on everything from his college record, to outsourcing, to the US role in NATO.
