NBC Picked the Wrong Partner to Take to the Republican Debate | Opinion

We are one year away from the 2024 presidential election and once again, the mainstream media is ignoring the threat of extremist propaganda machines. Today, the media, specifically NBC News, is failing the United States electorate.

Not just because NBC News is uncritically platforming misinformation as a co-host of tonight’s third Republican debate, but because the network is working with one of the far-right’s most powerful propaganda machines, Rumble, to do it. By co-hosting tonight’s debate with Rumble, NBC is legitimizing a video-sharing platform that bankrolls self-described misogynists and promotes right-wing conspiracy theorists.
