This Week in Media Bias History: NBC Journalist Smears War Hero as ‘Racist’ 'Killer’

Some quotes featured in This Week in Media Bias History are so awful, they end up becoming infamous. This edition has one of those quotes.

He slimed Kyle as a “racist” who went on "killing sprees.” The quote would go on to win the Media Research Center’s 2015 “DisHonors” award
