    How much does Netflix want from NBC to be the exclusive news provider for Netflix???

    Billions?
    Zillions?

    I applaud NBC News for running, uncensored, Trump’s “shithole” quote during Peter Alexander’s piece at the top of the January 11th broadcast. But could the partisan FCC go after NBC affiliates for airing the segment if they wanted to? I hope not.

    It looks like some people already have http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/trump-shithole-fcc-complaints-1202662858/

    I guess time will tell. It a no-win situation here but on any other normal day they would have fined them but NBC and CNN have a good argument on why they did not censor it as The President of these United states use the word to describe other countries.

    CNN isn’t under the jurisdiction of the FCC.

    They (those people) were directly quoting the President.

    Nobody will be fined.

    Unless...
    The whole thing was just a lie and it's proven he never said shithole... Then would NBC be on the hook for the profanity???

    No.

    Nobody will be cited, no NAL's...no fines....no s**t.

    Lester Holt did a piece on North Korea. Considering the amount of time he was there they should've spend 3 days on the story instead of ultra editing it to a 4 minute segment.

    I'm sure they are sitting on plenty of other N.Korean fluff pieces. Those will be aired in the weeks to come.

    I imagine there are more for the Olympics. They were invited for that sole reason.

    On one of the reports they were told that they couldn’t record and requested that footage be deleted but continued to do so anyway. How exactly would they get around that? I thought I read that some cameras had a mode where you could hide that your recording (no lights or anything) but what about the files?

    So I saw Lester was back in New York this Sunday but the Olympics for still going on? Is this because of all the breaking news?

    I’m surprised they sent Kate Snow over. Would have made sense to have kept her here in case of breaking news like this.

    It wouldn't totally shock me - between the boiling point that seems to be happening over gun violence in the wake of Florida and things appearing to accelerate with Mueller's investigation, it's probably not the worst idea.

    Savannah did NN tonight from the Winter Games. Interesting, was Lester sick?

    He probably needed a lot of rest, he has been working non stop since he went to North Korea. They should have Kate Snow be Lester's back up fill in on the weekdays.

    They do, I wonder if the news events that happened caused him to come home early. Lester is the type of guy that will be the first to be there and the last to leave.

    I wonder if Lester is planning for a newscast from Florida.

    Yeah I was surprised to see Lester in the NN studio earlier this week. Did he come back specifically for the mass shooting news out of Florida?

    Lester got some criticism from media critics that he stayed in Korea while the news was breaking. I highly doubt the criticsm brought him home early, maybe something is going with a family member. Lester is the type of guy that will be there first and leave last. For him to go home early is unusual.

    He said on twitter that “the best way to cure jet lag is by working”. Which explains his appearance on Sunday.

    It may be a bit late for them to report from Florida but maybe there’s some exclusive waiting in the wings. His son Stefan has been on the air so maybe it isn’t family.
