On Thursday night after the conclusion of the virtual 2020 Democratic National Convention, NBC made sure viewers knew they loved Joe Biden’s acceptance speech, calling it an “intimate,” “not partisan,” “optimistic,” “upbeat” “fireside chat” that sound like it was given by “a preacher at the pulpit.”

NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt led off by asserting that it wasn’t a speech but instead “a fireside chat” to which Today co-host Savannah Guthrie concurred (and was repeated over on CNN). 

Guthrie herself swooned that the “deeply optimistic,” “hopeful,” and “intimate” address “took on the tone at the end of almost a preacher at the pulpit.”
