<p>On Wednesday's NBC <em>Today</em>, news anchor Natalie Morales complained about having a flight delayed due to the FAA furloughing air traffic controllers in the wake of the sequester: "I was traveling to Boston yesterday, which is a 50-minute flight, shuttle. And it took me about two and a half hours to get there....the pilots got on and they said, 'It's not the airline's fault....you can go online and sign the petition to end the furloughs.'"<br /><br />The account echoed a similar report from CNBC's Jim Cramer, who on Tuesday's <em>Squawk Box</em> explained: "We were about to take off and the pilot comes back and doesn't see me initially, CNBC. And says, 'look, we just got word the FAA says that we don't have enough air traffic controllers to take off. It's part of the sequester.'"</p><p><em>More in the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2013/04/24/nbc-host-recalls-p…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC's NewsBusters blog. </em></p>
