<p>On Tuesday, NBC&rsquo;s chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell took time out of her <em>NBC Nightly News</em> report from Switzerland on the Iranian nuclear talks to hail Secretary of State John Kerry as someone who <strong>&ldquo;doesn&rsquo;t give up easily&rdquo; </strong>and gush that a local pizzeria in the town where the talks are being held has decided to name &ldquo;a pizza after him.&rdquo;</p>

<p>Following a lead-in from interim anchor Lester Holt, Mitchell started by describing negotiators having the<strong> &ldquo;weary look of college students pulling an all-nighter&rdquo; </strong>and noted that <strong>&ldquo;President Obama had said they wouldn&#39;t go past March 31st&rdquo; </strong>but now will continue. It should be mentioned that, to her credit, she was the only network reporter Tuesday night to mention that fact.</p>
