It’s not exactly a secret that Democratic politicos, liberal commentators, and the American media (but I repeat myself) have absolutely lost their minds over the successful strike against Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq, which happened last week.
But NBC News has taken “lost it” to a whole new level this week by way of their coverage of Qassem Soleimani’s funeral and his body being laid to rest in Iran.
On Tuesday night, the “news” network breathlessly promoted “live coverage” of Soleimani’s burial in Iran:
Watch live coverage as Gen. Qassem Soleimani is buried in his hometown of Kerman, Iran. https://t.co/CUsh8osifL

Both “journalists” (anchor Alison Morris and reporter Cal Perry) talking about the burial spoke about how watching people handle Qassem Soleimani’s body was an “incredible” sight to witness, and how the eyes of his supporters were “glued” to what was happening, which “gave a sense” of “how important” his burial was to the crowd that had gathered. Watch the three minute segment where they discussed this “truly historical moment” below:
Here’s another video of live shots NBC News did as Soleimani’s coffin was being carried through huge crowds in Tehran Monday:
Twitter users let them have it:
NBC should relocate to Iran.

Wow. Just when I thought NBC was at the rock bottom, they preservered and broke through a new, sewage filled level of reporting purgatory.

NBC drumming up sympathy for the enemy.

That’s exactly what they’re doing. They’re telling the American people, in so many words, look what that warmongering bully President Trump has done to a “hero” and “icon” who was so “respected” by millions of Iranians in the region.
People are understandably furious with NBC news for basically turning itself into a propaganda outlet for the Iranian mullahs because Orange Man Bad. Unfortunately, they aren’t the only network treating the Iranian regime with such reverence.
