<p>Friday&rsquo;s edition of Dateline NBC featured the long-planned hour-long special<em> Reality of Hope </em>dedicated to outgoing President Barack Obama and, naturally,<em> NBC Nightly News</em> anchor Lester Holt stayed clear of all Obama scandals in lieu of gush over his so-called accomplishments.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Holt promised <strong>&ldquo;an evening of hard questions,&rdquo; </strong>but they instead boiled down to how Obama will want himself remembered, if he felt<strong> &ldquo;free&rdquo; </strong>when he sang Amazing Grace in South Carolina, and how he <strong>&ldquo;had a tough time getting what you wanted through&rdquo; </strong>thanks to Republicans.</p>
