I doubt there will be a correct response from NBC news, but it is getting hard to determine the difference between NBC News and MSNBC opinion. This is a great letter from Ed Gillespie who is Counselor to the President.
Some great quotes in here, but let me just highlight two of them:
Are there numbers besides the “government number” to go by? Is there reason to believe “the government number” is suspect? How does the release of positive economic growth for two consecutive quarters, albeit limited, stop “just short of the official declaration of a recession”?
So now NBC “News” doesn’t believe the government numbers…. Because they (NBC) knows better?
And this choice quote:
I’m sure you don’t want people to conclude that there is really no distinction between the “news” as reported on NBC and the “opinion” as reported on MSNBC
Good luck getting a response….
