Please call NBC to tell them this is wrong!
There's no such thing as bad press... it's ALL promotion. NBC knows that, and is being led by the nose by the maga agenda.
First there was Fox, and then we lost CNN... if we lose NBC as a sane voice of facts then we might as well call the ballgame. We be Effed.
Keith Olberman conveniently reminded us that Welker was one of the DC Beltway hacks that attended a very fancy and expensive dinner hosted by Jason Miller and two of Trump's other lackeys just a few short weeks ago. Given that, can anyone be surprised that her inaugural outing is canned interview, surely carefully edited, with Agent Orange? I have thought Welker was little more than a female Chuck Todd, accomplished in little more than the art of both-siderism. This proves it.
Call made, voicemail option only, but I shared my disgust and feel better for it Thank you.
This is totally disgusting. They know exactly what happened when CNN just did this! And why do these networks keep using (abusing) WOMEN to do this dirty work? Utterly disgraceful
I just tried & got disconnected mid-comment, something about being unable to complete the call. Probably too much to hope for, but maybe people are blowing them up with calls. I’ll keep trying though, what a goddamn disgrace the American media’s become
FFS. Chuck Todd already sullied the reputation of this once hard-hitting program. It appears that this new iteration signals NBC’s desire to finish it off once & for all. Profit over public service every time. Is it any wonder that Mitt Romney was the last GOP MoC to act in service to the public & not their own self-interest.
I tweeted this yesterday when I found out they were having him on. "I haven't watched the Sun. shows in years because they have the same old white guys who created our problems offering solutions. I was going to watch Sunday to see how Welker does. They learned nothing from 2016. Shame on them for giving this traitor a platform. I won't watch." I just left a voicemail saying the same.
What do you think about Biden going on the next weekend to discuss all of his accomplishments? Would it matter? Trump will probably get the whole hour and Biden would only get the first 5 minutes.
I called NBC and left a message objecting to NBC giving Trump a platform to spew his dangerous and damaging rhetoric against our democracy. I urge you to do so as well at 212 664 4444. Thanks and please consider sharing this message to keep trump off our airwaves. Thank you.
This is disgusting, appalling and so wrong, he's being treated like a celebrity. I rang my friend in America on WhatsApp only last night and we spoke about how wrong this is, this is Dark Money. How awful it was to see him arrive for his arraignment in a motorcade, like some film star. This just shouldn't be happening, a normal person would not be given any of this, they'd have been in prison long ago. This makes a mockery of the US judicial system, I can't quite believe this is happening.
The only American journalist I trust to interview Trump is Mehdi Hasan.
Trump will run roughshod over most mainstream journalists.
Called, threaded and shared. Thank you for the heads up. Dean.
On my SiriusXM show on Wednesday, I urged listeners to call NBC and voice your views on how dangerous booking Trump for this show is by calling 212-664-4444. I urge you to do the same. The call will take literally one minute.
Thank you for this number.
We desperately need more public news sources. Call your Senators and Representatives also.
I think this is despicable and you are giving him more air time and making him legitimate. They need to cancel this interview. She is not the proper person to interview him and he does not deserve an interview
Didn’t they learn anything from the CNN fiasco? I stopped watching MTP a long time ago. I was looking forward to the new host Kristen Welker, who I respect very much. But I certainly won’t watch it now or ever again.
Totally agree...the utter manipulation of the press trying to NORMALIZE a criminal psycho is so upsetting...HE should not even be talked about anymore...Garland caused this disgrace by not doing a thing about Jan6th for too long...
