On Wednesday night, the major broadcast networks came out in full force to praise a “defiant” President Barack Obama for having made a “sweeping speech with fiery words” on the Iran nuclear deal that included the President following some in the media by comparing Iranian hardliners to Republicans against the deal (even though some Democrats are opposed to it as well). 

Leading the way was NBC Nightly News as anchor Lester Holt began the program’s coverage of the speech by observing that “[t]he battle over the Iran nuclear deal grew even more intense today as President Obama gave a sweeping speech with fiery words for critics.”
