NBC News: Obligation to Inform?


Here is how NBC News covered the presidential candidates from other parties in the 2016 campaign. The video seems to be messed up, but the audio seems to match what I heard.


If NBC News seriously thought it had an obligation to inform the public, would they have produced a piece like this? They start with and devote significant time to narrowly focused candidates. They then minimally cover broadly focused candidates with serious platforms. They don’t even tell you a thing about what Jill Stein stands for. You know that NBC News cannot possibly think that a piece like this will help its audience understand the choices they have before them.

NBC is effectively satirizing its own news show.
