Larry Dovichi: NBC - News noBody Cares about

July 17, 2014 

I swore I would never watch NBC News again, but Sunday night, I did. Big mistake. A full eight minutes on the Israel-Palestine conflict; three minutes on the weather; two each on Alzheimer’s testing and babies in Ethiopia; one minute each about Candlestick Park, The Lone Rangers uniform (not kidding), the Concordia, Spain’s running of the bulls and an Italian bike racer; and three minutes on America’s newfound love for soccer. Kind of wish George W. Bush was still president as I am sure they would have our border disaster highlighted for most of their biased broadcast. Their peacock has its head in the sand.
