After being no-shows on Monday’s NBC Nightly News, NBC arrived via Tuesday morning’s Today to Devon Archer’s damaging remarks behind closed doors to the House Oversight Committee about what he saw in his time as Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner and confidant, including their stint on the infamous Ukrainian energy company, Burisma.

This wasn’t entirely surprising as Today had been the only flagship network morning or evening newscast to allude to the hearing in the run-up to Monday with a seven-second nod on Friday.

However, the segment mirrored those on ABC and CBS in downplaying the seriousness of Archer’s testimony that Hunter did, in fact, put his father on speaker phone while in the presence of his odious pals. Across the three networks between Monday night and Tuesday morning, the coverage total stands at eight minutes and 37 seconds.
