UPDATES NBC Uses Obama To Plug Conan & SNL

This should only bolster the right’s contention that NBC is in the tank for the Obama administration. Now the network has Hillary Clinton flacking The Tonight Show as the NBC PR machine claims she will “attempt to broker a truce” in the phony baloney 3-week-long “war of words” between Conan O’Brien and Newark Mayor Cory Booker. This, after President Obama himself already flacked Conan’s show. First, why does NBC think Hillary can help ratings? And, secondly, you mean to tell me the U.S. Secretary Of State doesn’t have anything better to do?
