<p>While a series of Obama administration scandals have left many Americans questioning the trustworthiness of government officials and bureaucrats, NBC News decided to use the recent National Security Agency leaks by Booz Allen contractor Edward Snowden to bash the role of the private sector in assisting with intelligence gathering.<br /><br />Chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman summed up the network's smear campaign during a panel discussion on Wednesday's NBC <em>Today</em> about the NSA snooping controversy: "...the number of contractors who aren't government workers, who are hired because they're young and geeky and they have computer skills....<strong>But they also are rather unmoored, they don't have a sense of patriotism, they don't really belong anywhere</strong>, so their sense of right and wrong is very different than how we see it."</p><p><em>More in the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2013/06/12/nbc-nsa-leaks-show…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC's NewsBusters blog. </em></p>
