<p>To the surprise of probably no one who visits NewsBusters, CBS and NBC went soft in their Tuesday evening newscasts previewing President Obama&rsquo;s farewell address, touting Obama as having been<strong> &ldquo;the embodiment of hope and the personification of change.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>With zero allusions on either network to his many scandals,<em> NBC Nightly News</em> instead showcased the first soundbite from anchor Lester Holt&rsquo;s ride on Air Force One to Chicago with the President in which Holt wondered if this speech will be<strong> &ldquo;a hard one&rdquo;</strong> to deliver.</p>
