NBC News is in the forefront of mainstream media fake news outlets. Its reputation and integrity for credible journalism was dissolved during its participation in the Trump-Russia conspiracy hoax. NBC Washington D.C. correspondent Ken Delanian actively fed false news narratives from the Comey FBI to undermine the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Neither NBC News nor its subsidies, MSNBC and Vox Media published retractions for their false and defamatory reporting, which destroyed the lives and reputations of dozens of Trump campaign and administration officials. Ken Delanian had been fired by the Los Angeles Times when his employer discovered Delanian betrayed independent journalism ethics and was also employed by the CIA as a propagandist; Delanian immediately was hired by NBC News.
