The woes of NBC

Hosted by

The bad news keeps coming for NBC, and some say it’s a cautionary tale about a network trying to be too many things to too many people. NBC is expected to formally oust “Today” show host Billy Bush any day over the now-infamous “grab them by the p***y” tape of Bush and Donald Trump talking about women leaked last week. But the whole scandal over that and why NBC News didn’t report on the tape first is only the network’s latest woe. Before that, there was Bush’s embarrassing interview with Ryan Lochte and Matt Lauer’s widely panned interviews with Trump and Hillary Clinton. What’s going on at NBC?
