Why would they go crazy over waterboarding, but ignore the drone strikes … because they’re protecting the president.
Bill O’Reilly • Explaining why he thinks NBC is ignoring the drone strike memo leak—you know, the one exclusively obtained by NBC News’ Michael Isikoff—while responsible networks like Fox News discuss it at every opportunity, It’s unclear how O’Reilly and his staff were unaware that NBC broke the story, or that Isikoff made appearances on numerous NBC and MSNBC broadcasts this week, but the O’Reilly Factor host is expected to discuss his mistake on Thursday night’s broadcast. Anybody think he’ll apologize? source

There was a media blackout on this story, but Gawker notably broke it. Fortunately, NBC News journalist Richard Engel and the rest of his team were able to escape harm after being kidnapped in Syria last week. They were freed after a firefight at a Syrian checkpoint. “It is good to be here. I’m very happy that we’re able to do this live shot this morning,” Engel said. Very glad to hear he’s OK; Engel is one of our best.

Yesterday, we made an editorial call resulting in the Sept, 11 moment of silence not being seen. While we dedicated a substantial amount of airtime to anniversary events, we still touched a nerve with many of your viewers … and for that we apologize.
NBC News chief Steve Capus • Apologizing for something that made them look particularly off on Tuesday — instead of airing the moment of silence to honor the victims of September 11 (unlike every other network), they aired an interview with Kris Jenner, the mother of the Kardashians, about her breast augmentation — a questionable interview choice which drew attention to the oversight. The network says it had not regularly aired the moment of silence on since 2006, with the exception of the ten-year anniversary.
