    The following comments are based on the article, "NBC's Matt Lauer confronts Trump over his tweeting: Are you having a 'difficult time breaking' this habit?" from Business Insider.This morning on NBC’s “Today” show Matt Lauer talked to Donald Trump about his tweet addiction. Matt asked “I have not see you backing off fights on Twitter,” referring to Trump's attacks on Boeing for cost overruns, the cast of Hamilton, The New York Times, “Saturday Night Live,” and the media in general. Trump replied "No, I think I am very restrained, and I talk about important things.” Trump went on to...

    Grant Tinker, former chairman and CEO of NBC, died on Tuesday, Nov. 29. He was  90. In 1969, Tinker and his then-wife, actress Mary Tyler Moore, launched MTM Enterprises. The company became an indie powerhouse, producing such popular series as the ground-breaking The Mary Tyler Moore Show, starring Moore, Rhoda, The Bob Newhart Show, WKRP in Cincinnati, Hill Street Blues and St. Elsewhere. In 1981, Tinker left to become chairman and CEO of  then-last-place network NBC. There, guided by his famous motto “First be best, then be first,” Tinker, with Brandon Tartikoff as his entertainment president, spearheaded a ratings turnaround...

    President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. “The meeting took place...

    With many liberals across the country freaking out about Donald Trump becoming president, SNL tonight aired a mock ad offering liberals a bubble of their own to live in. Yes, this bubble keeps liberals from hearing or experiencing things that go against their worldview. Also Bernie Sanders is on money and people only get access to the “good” websites. But it turns out that every safe space comes with some teensy tiny drawbacks…

    NBC News ^ | Nov 15 2016, 10:21 pm ET | Alexandra Jaffe & Ali Vitali
    In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going. The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media. The only way the press eventually ascertained his whereabouts was after a Bloomberg reporter, who happened to be dining at the 21 Club, tweeted a photo of Trump and some of his transition team in the Midtown steakhouse. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks later told NBC News. "He is having dinner with his family."

    Months after voters in the United Kingdom defied surveys and chose to leave the European Union — after pollsters had widely predicted the country would remain — Donald Trump is betting on the American electorate delivering another polling surprise. "Believe me, this is Brexit times five," Trump said in Pennsylvania last week. But experts say a polling upset on November 8th is incredibly unlikely, and that the Brexit comparison just doesn't hold water. The only real similarity is that British voters that opted to leave the European Union and Trump supporters are both driven by the same kind of anxieties...

    On Thursday’s NBC Today, correspondent Ronan Farrow devoted a five-minute report to promoting liberal claims of Republicans trying to suppress Democratic voter turnout on election day by targeting minority groups with voter ID laws. Farrow warned: “According to one recent survey, one in five voters lives in a state that requires photo ID to vote but don’t know it....a wave of new laws making it tougher than ever just to cast a ballot.” He highlighted one victim of the policy: “Charda Hanamadas lives in Wisconsin.

    Appearing on MSNBC’s MTP Daily today, NBC News’ justice correspondent Pete Williams refuted much of the reporting from Wall Street Journal and Fox News regarding a likely indictment regarding an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Fox’s Bret Baier later backed off slightly, saying the indictment comment was “inartfully answered.” Speaking to host Chuck Todd, Williams claimed that via his own law enforcement sources, there doesn’t actually appear to be much of an investigation, let alone one that will result in indictments. “There really isn’t one,” Williams answered Todd regarding the status of the investigation. “Few want to call it...

    Following the recent discovery of e-mails, possibly pertinent to the Hillary Clinton private server investigation on a device belonging to Anthony Weiner, FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress Friday to inform them. Beyond the waves that the letter created, it appears to have left NBC’s reporter and Clinton super-fan Andrea Mitchell absolutely distraught over when this means for her candidates’ campaign. “This is just the worst possible situation for the FBI, for the country, for Hillary Clinton certainly,” Mitchell exclaimed during Meet the Press on Sunday. Mitchell praised Clinton for going “nuclear” on the FBI director as...

    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife who’s active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23). But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year.

    NBC seems to have gone out of the news business. The network has been remarkably shy about reporting on the massive amount of e-mails being released through WikiLeaks, but more than willing to give time to anyone who says anything bad about Trump. Competitor CBS, on the other hand, seems to be dividing up with time equally into a “Bad Donald, Bad Hillary” segment. NBC, of course, is the network that employs John Harwood, a CNBC correspondent who sent love notes to the Clinton campaign and even generously offered his advice. I hope Harwood was auditioning for a job with...

    The top fundraisers for Clinton include lobbyists who serve the parent companies of CNN and MSNBC. The National Association of Broadcasters, a trade group that represents the television station industry, has lobbyists who are fundraising for both Clinton and Republican candidate Marco Rubio. Presidential campaigns are obligated by law to send the Federal Election Commission a list of lobbyists who serve as “bundlers,” collecting hundreds of individual checks on behalf of a candidate’s campaign. CNN’s parent company, Time Warner, is represented on Capitol Hill by Steve Elmendorf, an adviser to Clinton during her 2008 campaign, who is also known as...

In 2012, about 12 million voters cast ballots before Election Day in these same states.

Instead, the video jumped ahead to Mika Brzezinski’s reading of the poll results themselves, which showed Hillary Clinton with an 11-14% lead. Scarborough’s point was that NBC sampled only during the height of the hot mic hysteria, but didn’t include sampling from after the debate, widely viewed as having been won by Trump. Joe obviously knew he...

    NBC News knows the "Commander-in-Chief Forum" was not Matt Lauer's finest hour. One executive, speaking anonymously, was blunt about it: "Disaster." The morning after Lauer's back-to-back interviews of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, several high ranking sources at the network said they hear the criticism and agree with at least some of it. Lauer was widely criticized for failing to fact-check or follow up when Trump falsely claimed that he was opposed to the Iraq war when it started. Some viewers thought Lauer held Clinton to a higher standard than Trump. Several people who were sitting in the audience told...

    Hillary Clinton was sporting a mini earbud wired to receive stealth communications from her campaign handlers during Wednesday's Presidential Forum carried live on NBC, True Pundit has learned. While Clinton was fielding questions from NBC's Matt Lauer and the public Wednesday night on live television, a quiet buzz started circulating in New York law enforcement circles about Hillary’s left ear. NYPD sources confirm Clinton was wearing an 'inductive earpiece,' the same technology employed by almost all lead Broadway actors to receive forgotten lines and stealth off-stage cues from directors. The flesh-colored earbud is easily concealed. There are no wires...

    NBC News is facing harsh criticism from Hillary Clinton's campaign and her supporters for publishing an article on a coughing fit the Democratic presidential nominee experienced on Monday in Cleveland. The five-paragraph story, "Hillary Clinton Fights Back Coughing Attack," noted that Clinton quickly turned the coughing issue into a dig at her GOP rival, Donald Trump. Reporter Andrew Rafferty wrote: "I've been talking so much," Clinton said with a hoarse voice. "Every time I think about Trump, I get allergic." … The frog in Clinton's throat on Monday was one of the most aggressive she's had during her 2016 run...

    On Wednesday, Sept. 7, NBC News and MSNBC — along with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America — will host the “The Commander-in-Chief Forum” in New York City. It will be one-hour forum where Clinton and Trump will answer questions about national security, military affairs and veterans issues in front of an audience mainly made up of members of the military. The two candidates will not be on the stage at the same time, but will instead go back to back. It’s worth nothing that Lauer is listed as a “notable past member” on the Clinton Global Initiative’s website...

    On the Tube in London there’s a sign saying “Mind The Gap” to warn riders to be careful when stepping on the train – NBC might want to pay attention to the expression when it comes to Olympics ratings. With a 4.0/14 rating among adults 18-49 and 16.85 million viewers for the Closing Ceremony of the Rio Games, NBC is looking at the worst Summer Olympics results in decades. Not only are fast affiliates down to the second lowest result of the 2016 Olympics for the Comcast-owned net’s primetime coverage but they took a whooping 56% fall in the...
