Trying to decide which major channel is worse on news is not easy, thanks to all of them vying for the title of least trustable. Here's some of NBC's lowlights.

Examples

  • 2018.10.12 - Robert E. Lee - Trump does a speech in Ohio, on how great Ulysses S. Grant was (an Ohio native). And to do so, you mention the greatness of the foes he overcame: so in passing, he mentioning that Robert E. Lee was a great general... and was defeated by Grant. NBC spun that sentence fragment into a “WATCH: President Trump says ‘Robert E. Lee was a great general’ during Ohio rally, calling the Confederate leader ‘incredible.'” -- and creates a twitter and media storm about how tone deaf and racist Trump is. Only Trump said that Grant was the "incredible" one. It took NBC two days to quietly retract -- but as usually, there 3,000 retweets and 6,000 likes of the FakeNews, and FakeNews is inventing a meme by omitting context and inventing "of course Trump loves the confederate General" through sloppy reporting.

    • P.S. Robert E. Lee was a great General, he gave up slaves before the war and before Grant did, he spoke/wrote against the institution of Slavery, he gave us Arlington Cemetery, and was a celebrated American general both before and after the Civil War. So whether he was a Confederate or not, doesn't change what he was, despite the left's Stalin'esque efforts to whitewash history.
