1. Oh yes. Thanks for the reminder

He was so biased one had to wonder why he was there. Was not a debate, just questioning each at a time but still.

I assumed his lousy performance in those debates was because he wasn't used to being on air that long without a break for a cooking demonstration.

6. NBC is Comcast. My guess would be this mega-billion dollar media company has agendas if its own.

More deregulation, the elimination of net neutrality and lower taxes being at the top of the list. If they thought Trump was a better option in that respect they would skew their coverage accordingly.

7. Sometimes sexism is an easy target

but I'd say lauers performance at the debates was politically motivated. George Clooney could have been the candidate and lauer still would have gone easy on trumpft.

Sexism, like racism, is a good tool to whip up the masses. But the real issues are political. They want their tax brakes and de-regulation, and democrats aren't going to give it to them.

analyzing the news. They are ALL Comcast. It's a type of slight-of-hand being performed by our owners.

never watch him. Has he come out against the tax bill and net neutrality?

i remember that. I was pissed off about the open hostility he showed to her, particularly when you compared it to the cozy way he dealt with trump. He seriously disrespected her!

So if this is his karmic comeuppance, then so be it. I'll take what I can get.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that they all seem to have made it their mission to take down our nation's first viable female candidate for president. Is Chuckie Todd next?

That's a ridiculous statement. Nor was it Rose's job, or Halperin's.

I have no idea who Thrush is.

41. Todd went after HRC relentlessly on the phony email scandal

After the election he actually lamented that he and others in the media couldn't portray HRC as negatively as they wanted to (!) because they would be painted as misogynists. If the shoe fits, Chuckie.

Halperin's animus toward HRC is well-documented. Google "Mark Halperin Hillary Clinton" for some examples.

Thrush is a (now suspended) NY Times reporter who, along with Maggie Haberman, has been a Hillary-hater extraordinaire. His Twitter account went dormant right before he was suspended from the Times for sexual harrassment claims. That was right after he posted an unhinged tweetstorm in which he claimed HRC deserved all negative coverage she received and the MSM did nothing wrong in 2016.

Maybe before you rudely call someone else's statements ridiculous, inform yourself.

how rude he was to Hillary, rushing her when she responded to his questions, claiming they only had so much time. Then he let Trump do whatever he wanted. Lauer disdain and disrespect for Clinton was so in-your-face.

I never understood why this talentless, unappealing buy had such a high paying job on television.
