On Wednesday, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt flaunted just how much he felt “fairness is overrated,” when he had his program censor an Inspector General report that busted a fake news narrative. About a year ago, the liberal media accused then-President Trump of having Lafayette Park cleared of Black Lives Matter protesters for a photo-op in front of St. John’s Church.

CBS Evening News calling it “vindication for the Trump administration.” But NBC was more interested in trying to get viewers deals for hot summer sales on bathing suits, lipstick, and other frivolous items. The network was also fascinated with a group of elephants migrating across China.

And then there was NBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell gushing over how President Biden was supposedly going to be harsher on Russian President Vladimir Putin than Trump was. Of course, she didn’t mention Biden waiving sanctions and allowing Russia to finish a pipeline to Germany.
