Revealed: What NBC Did To Trump Behind The Scenes While He Was Speaking At Network’s Forum


NBC’s “Commander-in-Chief” forum served up an interesting night of TV to viewers Wednesday, offering a chance to hear both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton answer questions about the military and foreign policy.

But after the prime time program ended, people began to notice an apparent bias on NBC’s part.

Young Conservatives pointed out on its website that NBC was doing everything possible to push back from Trump appearing to be a reasonable and positive choice for voters.

Looking at NBC’s Twitter timeline during the forum, you clearly get a sense that the network had an alternate agenda.


While Clinton was on stage, NBC’s Twitter feed was largely nothing more than a recap of her answers to the various questions being asked.

While Trump was on stage, there were not only his answers, but stories such as a piece on former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell saying Trump doesn’t understand how Russian president Vladimir Putin is “playing him,” a list of issues where Trump has shifted his positions, re-tweeting statements Trump made in 2013 on sexual assault in the military, and comments from the network’s political analysts on what they perceived as flaws in Trump’s performance.

Even CNN showed a bit of favoritism towards Clinton, calling one part of Trump’s sit-down “the most stunning sequence” because the businessman had called Putin a better leader than Obama.

“I mean, the man has very strong control over a country. And that’s a very different system and I don’t happen to like the system. But certainly in that system he’s been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader,” Trump told moderator Matt Lauer.

“If he says great things about me, I’m going to say great things about him,” he added.

Trump also refused to detail his plans for defeating ISIS, and noted the American military had eroded under Obama.

“Under the leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble,” Trump said. “They’ve been reduced to a point where it’s embarrassing to our country.”

Clinton’s attack strategy was to point out that Trump was not to be trusted with nuclear weapons. She claimed that an occupant at the Oval Office should have a tough but steady posture and attacked her Republican rival’s temperament.

Noting the discrepancy in coverage, Young Conservative joked, “Just another day of bias at NBC.”
