Complaint: DUELING TOWNHALLS

New complaint

My complaint:

I have been an avid watcher of NBC News for decades…from the Today Show in the morning to NBC Evening News with Lester Holt (and all the other anchors that preceded him) in the evening and MSNBC during the day. Now that NBC has decided to broadcast a Town Hall with Trump in the same time slot that ABC News is broadcasting a Town Hall with Joe Biden, I will NO LONGER BE WATCHING ANY NBC NEWS OR MSNBC BROADCAST. It is absolutely despicable what NBC is doing in putting their ratings and advertising earnings before the needs of the American public. This election is probably one of the most important of our lifetime and NBC pulls this grossly shameful negligent stunt. I will be boycotting NBC and I suggest others that are as disgusted with them as I am do the same.

Justified complaint?

Suggested solution:

Reschedule the Trump Town Hall to not conflict with the Joe Biden Town Hall on ABC

I watch MSNBC throughout the day. I am very disappointed by the decision to show Trump’s town hall at the same time as Biden’s I hope You reconsider. If not, I will have to switch to another channel for news.

I think it is disgusting that you scheduled Trump’s Town Hall on the same night as
Vice President Biden. I am disappointed that Samantha agreed to do this. I usually watch The Today Show but now I will watch CBS. You are doing this country a disservice. Molly

Apart from the fact that the CEO of Comcast, Brian Roberts is President Trump’s golfing buddy and maybe there was a casual conversation between a former NBC Reality performer and a CEO discussing ratings. However, it shows NBC have very little respect for the democratic election process and allowing the American voices to be heard. It is both disrespectful and undignified for NBC to schedule a Town Hall with President Trump at precisely the same time as the former Vice President Biden is holding a Town Hall Meeting on a competitive network, ABC. NBC are now turning this procedure into… Read more »

Don’t care why NBC decided to hold this trump show at the same time as Joe Biden’s Town Hall when trump agreed to a debate then flaked out. I will miss some of NBC’s normal programs (This is Us WAS my favorite)but this was a disgusting ratings move that I cannot support!

Savannah Guthrie was absolutely disgusting last night! She was rude, disrespectful and combative. I’m done with the Today show and NBC.

What an absolute disgrace to OUR Elected President. Being challenged at every turn by the moderator which I thought was supposed to be neutral. What a disgrace to your network work! Biden being served softballs that he has rehearsed for probably two weeks and still needed his ear piece.Pretty sure George was not only NON confrontational but served up the perfect softballs for Joe to answer and the people selected to ask Joe questions were all very PRO democratic party. Did he Joe even have one person disagree with him? The LOVE fest was SICKENING!!!!! Fire her ass!! Have some… Read more »
