It appears that NBC is once again denying the obvious, which brings to mind the blockbuster film “The Princess Bride” in which the villainous “Vizzini” utters the iconic line “inconceivable” and in which the hero “Inigo Montoya” replies, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
And that pretty much explains the apparent conflict of interest in tagging “Today” co-anchor host Matt Lauer to moderate the scheduled town hall forum between the two presidential candidates.
Moreover much like the villainous character played by actor Wallace Shawn, NBC continues to deny Lauer’s cozy relationship with the Clinton’s and as a donor to the Clinton Foundation.
Which prompted a statement by NBC, stating: “Matt Lauer was not and is not a Clinton Global Initiative member, he interviewed President Clinton from a CGI conference for the ‘Today’ show’s live broadcast, not for the conference.”
The apparent confusion centers around a website that listed prominent journalist as “notable members” to the Clinton Foundation, which also includes Anderson Cooper, Maria Bartiromo, Thomas Friedman, Christiane Amanpour and Greta Van Susteren.
The “Commander-in-Chief” town hall event is slated for September 7th and is being billed as “the first joint candidate event of the general election,” and will be aired live starting at 8 p.m. ET on both NBC and MSNBC.
Although the page referencing Lauer as a donor on the website has mysteriously disappeared, the fees to become a member requires a $20,000 donation, however some individuals are granted complimentary membership.
Do you think this is further proof of an anti-Trump liberal media bias?
