<p>During Tuesday&rsquo;s <em>NBC Nightly News</em>, one of the segments focused on a movie set to be released in theaters January 16 starring Julianne Moore as a woman faced with Alzheimers. While the movie, entitled &ldquo;Still Alice,&rdquo; focuses on an important topic and covering upcoming movie releases is nothing new for the networks, an executive producer for the movie is none other than NBC News correspondent Maria Shriver.</p>

<p>In what was already a conflict of interest by covering the movie, the network also allowed Shriver to play the role of reporter in promoting a venture that could benefit her financially in a two-minute-and-28-second segment.</p>
