<p>[See <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2016/05/24/well-that…; for more.] When liberal MSNBC provides more balanced coverage than NBC, you know there&rsquo;s a problem. On Monday night, <em>Nightly News</em> completely ignored the gaffe of Barack Obama&rsquo;s Secretary of Veterans Affairs comparing wait time for medical treatment to that of lines at Disneyland. On Tuesday, the <em>Today</em> show, a four hour-long program, allowed a scant 35 seconds on the controversial remarks. Yet, MSNBC&rsquo;s Andrea Mitchell actually grilled Secretary Robert McDonald. Talking to the official, she demanded, &ldquo;Can you understand why people were offended by your analogy of the Disney lines to the wait times for care for people, some of whom have actually died, according to all the testimonies, while waiting to be seen by the VA in the past?&rdquo; After he avoided apologizing, Mitchell followed-up: &ldquo;Given all that, are you sorry you said what you said?&rdquo;</p>
