Chuck Todd: Hillary miniseries a "total nightmare" for NBC NewsTopics:
"This mini series is a total nightmare for NBC News," Todd said. "There's this giant firewall, we have nothing to do with it, we know that we'd love probably to be as critical, or whatever it is going to be, if it comes out. But there's nothing we can do about it."Ed Morrissey is unimpressed with that "giant firewall" that Todd speaks of:
"We're going to only own the negatives," he continued. "Whether it's negative because it's the Clinton people are upset that it's too tough on them, or negative because the Republicans think it's this glorification of her -- no matter what, only we are going to own it, because people are going to see the peacock and NBC and see NBC News and think: "Well, they can't be that separate.""
""The giant firewall to which Todd refers has enough open doorways to allow news anchor Brian Williams to make plenty of humorous cameos on 30 Rock for the Entertainment division's benefit, and the Today show certainly straddles that firewall on a regular basis, too. MSNBC isn't exactly a hard-news effort, for that matter, as the channel's management readily admits. NBC will spend millions airing this miniseries, probably just on Diane Lane's salary alone, and that speaks to a certain organizational commitment that talk of "giant firewalls" just can't erase.""Good luck with your pro-Hillary kabuki dance, NBC (and CNN)
