This week, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt tells Hillary Clinton how he “winced” when a young voter told the candidate that “people don't trust you,” even as Holt's scandal-scarred predecessor Brian Williams showed a stunning lack of self-awareness when he told MSNBC viewers on caucus night: “We will be the purveyors of truth and justice.” Plus, when Hollywood is accused of racism over the all-white Oscars, Danny DeVito blames the rest of America: “It's unfortunate that the entire country is a racist country.”
Tiny actor-director Danny DeVito can make a big charge of American racism on the controversy over the all-white acting nominations for the Academy Awards.
“It’s unfortunate that the entire country is a racist country. So it’s an example of the fact that even though some great people have given some great performances in movies, they weren’t even thought about. We are living in a country that discriminates and has certain racist tendencies
While interviewing actor Ed Helms about his role in 'Dr. Seuss' The Lorax' On Monday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer seemed puzzled that anyone would question the environmentalist message of the book or movie: "...believe it or not, Dr. Seuss has sparked controversy with this movie because Lou Dobbs weighed in on this..."
Lauer quoted criticism from Dobbs: "The Lorax is an example of the President's liberal friends in Hollywood targeting a younger demographic using animated movies to sell their agenda to children." Helms sarcastically joked: "I am so excited that Barack Obama, who is my best friend, got us going on this. Because we're going to indoctrinate a lot of people. If this goes well, I hope." He then exclaimed: "Lou, come on! What are you talking about?"
