Earlier today, I made note that I was surprised how little NBC had referenced the fighting in the Ukraine, and in particular how much it had been ignored on the primetime broadcasts. I was surprised about primetime not just because this was a reflection of NBC News, but also since it was the kind of thing that Bob Costas doesn't shy away from.
Happily, to Bob Costas's full credit, he did address it tonight, for 2-3 minutes, and in a thoughtful, graceful but blunt manner. It's still a small amount for NBC, but happily Costas was back in the anchor seat, because otherwise we might not have even got that.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
