<p>On Tuesday, all three network morning shows expressed shock and dismay at allegations that Facebook censored conservative political news from its supposed trending news feed. At the top of NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em>, co-host Savannah Guthrie declared: <strong>&ldquo;Censored by Facebook? The popular social network being accused of routinely suppressing conservative stories from its trending feed. The claim coming from former workers.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>In the report that followed minutes later, fill-in co-host Natalie Morales worried: <strong>&ldquo;Well, now to this troubling accusation leveled against Facebook</strong> that&#39;s getting a lot of attention this morning.&rdquo; She noted that social media company was <strong>&ldquo;scrambling to respond to surprising accusations of political bias.&rdquo;</strong></p>
