On Friday morning, NBC’s Today show actually devoted a nearly four-minute report to criticism of hypocritical left-wing celebrities taking private jets and yachts to a climate change event in Italy hosted by Google.

Appearing on MSNBC Live With Craig Melvin late Monday morning, NBC News foreign correspondent Keir Simmons assured viewers that despite how well President Trump’s state visit to the United Kingdom was going so far, the British and American press would surely pick it apart and find negative headlines to write in the coming days.
President Trump is visiting the United Kingdom and France this week to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

On Friday, NBC’s Today show aired an exclusive interview with Khaled Al-Batsh, one of the leaders of the Palestinian terrorist organization Islamic Jihad.

Throughout Friday’s Today show, NBC hosts and anchors engaged in climate change hysteria. Humans were condemned for being “greedy and lazy,” accused of making the planet “a tougher place to live.” In addition, dire warnings were issued about Alaska experiencing “an environmental disaster,” with residents being “the first climate change refugees in our country.”
All three networks spent Thursday morning gushing in favor of New Zealand’s new gun ban, touting that it had “widespread, bipartisan support” with “very little opposition.” ABC, NBC and CBS also spent time shaming the U.S. for not adopting a similar buyback measure.
An NBC reporter horrified MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace on Friday by failing to sufficiently condemn President Trump's handling of the North Korea summit. The Deadline: White House host's mouth hung agape and she stared on in disbelief while foreign correspondent Keir Simmons meekly suggested that perhaps the President had not completely doomed both the U.S. and North Korea to destruction by nuclear hellfire.
In a stunningly tone deaf report for NBC’s Today show on Wednesday, reporter Keir Simmons touted “a week inside North Korea” and gaining “rare access to the people there,” which included riding bumper cars at an amusement park in Pyongyang and sampling beer at a local bar.

Reporting live from the site of the upcoming G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Wednesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Keir Simmons promised that “President Trump faces a tough trip here with some uncomfortable conversations.” The reporter hyped how Trump “does not see eye-to-eye with the German chancellor” and that “all eyes will be on that meeting with President Putin.”
During an interview with the stars of the Hollywood’s latest anti-capitalist screed, Money Monster, on Friday’s NBC Today, correspondent Keir Simmons summed up the plot of the film: “In the movie, [George] Clooney is forced to wear an explosive vest by British rising star Jack O'Connell. Who lost his dead mother's money on stocks.” Simmons noted: “This guy is a terrorist, who you end up feeling sympathy for.”
NBC's Today on Monday aired a sensationalistic report on the upcoming release of two books that are "exposing alleged corruption and infighting within the Catholic Church." Keir Simmons boosted a statement from one of the publishers involved, who claimed that "if the Vatican were a company they'd be in Chapter 11, and heads would be rolling from all the mistrust and financial abuses." Simmons also injected the political into his segment, underlining that "Pope Francis has introduced controversial changes opposed by some of the more conservative Church officials."
