NBC has a long history of making news rather than reporting news. Remember when they manipulated GM vehicles to make them blow up? They felt justified making up the news because they were attacking a big, bad car company. Yesterday, NBC released a taped private conversation between Donald Trump and actor Billy Bush. Here’s what I wondered, too:
Simple question for @NBCNews. When were you planning to tell us?

This tape could have been released during the primaries, but NBC, and all the major media, serves as political arm for the Democrats.
NBC held the tape because they were making business and political considerations. They were not reporting the news in a timely matter.They robbed half the electorate of making an informed choice. When, some time down the road, all the details of this editorial decision becomes known, the damage will have been fully done, and NBC will pay no consequence for their malfeasance.
No matter what happens with the Trump candidacy, the Republican party will be running against the media.
GOP now in a no-win political situation. Withdraw endorsements and lose base support. Continue to endorse, lose swing voters. House in play.
