NBC news has a history of slanting the news and creating its own reality.
Lester Holt, who conducted the first presidential debate, showed his bias and immediately in the first question.
He claimed that “There’s been a record six straight months of job growth and census data show that incomes have grown at a record rate.” This is the liberal media’s way of slanting the news that the economy is doing well.
That’s a lie.
This lie enabled Hillary Clinton to spread the lie by repeating Lester Holt’s liberal commentary.
The fact is, we have the longest prolonged stagnation of the economic in history.
The fact is that the underemployment and the people who have given up looking for work is at a historic high.
The fact is that unemployed, especially among millennials and minorities is tragic and historic.
The economy is not moving ahead for the vast majority of Americans. This could be a vibrant economy.
Other areas of bias …
Lester Holt challenged Trump at least five times. He also silenced the audience when they applauded for Donald Trump, but allowed Hillary Clinton supporters to show their support.
Holt asked Trump about his tax returns, but did not ask Hillary Clinton about her emails, Benghazi, or her incendiary remarks about minorities.
Overall, despite the bias of the debate moderator, Hillary Clinton earned a B-, and Donald Trump a C-
Hillary Clinton was able to rally her base, and carefully articulated her positions. It was obviously well-rehearsed, well [-prepared, and was good for her base, and to generate support.
Donald Trump was obviously not well-prepared did not make all the points he could have made, but still he was able to show himself presidential. He made some significant points that resonated with his base.
Did either of them persuade the persuadables? That’s the big question. The answer is: “Probably not”.
The next two debates coming up will be critical for both candidates.
The question is: will the moderators continue to be biased?
