<p>In addition to its slanted coverage of the news regarding Cuba, <em>NBC Nightly News</em> on Thursday offered up a biased segment against the growing transportation company Uber by using two incidents involving its drivers to conclude that Uber&rsquo;s currently experiencing <strong>&ldquo;a rough ride&rdquo;</strong> over<strong> &ldquo;increasing concerns&rdquo;</strong> regarding safety.</p>

<p>NBC News correspondent Janet Shamlian only interviewed two individuals during her entire two-minute-and-19-second segment, with both being firmly against Uber and using the company as well.</p>
