  • Valerie Jarrett interview shows how low 'Meet the Press' has sunk

    Believe me, I didn't go looking in my Sunday morning TV viewing for more evidence of what a journalistically bankrupt operation NBC News had become. It's fish in a barrel these days. Turn to NBC News for almost any given broadcast, and you'll find...
