My complaint:

I have refrained from writing previously about Savannah Guthrie’s unprofessional behavior when conducting interviews with individuals offering opinions different from her own. When she attacked Nicholas Sandmann, I was appalled. Since then I have witnessed the same biased behavior several more times. She does not work alone. The NBC Network team is responsible for and involved with the framing of these interviews and any news reporting. The NBC Town Hall Meeting finally moved me from my silent majority stance to voicing my concerns about what I see happening with all of our major networks. Biased and omitted reporting of news stories are the trend. The American people are not stupid. For every person you think you are pleasing with bias, disrespect, badgering and the sin of omission, you are offending an equal, if not greater, number of Americans. Savannah’s remark “not like someone’s crazy uncle” only served to portray her as someone’s not so nice niece. Respect for the Office of the President of the United States should never be ignored no matter who holds that position. I believe you will be hearing more from the silent majority unless NBC, and all of the other Networks, begin treating their ENTIRE audience with the respect they deserve. We have had it with all of you who wear or hold microphones. Give us the straight facts – all of them! We don’t need anyone to tell us how to think. Thank you.

Suggested solution:

Remove all biased reporting. Report all the news. Ensure professional and ethical reporting at all times. When you host a Town Hall, make it a Town Hall, and not a debate. Assign the role of moderator to someone who can handle it.
