Networks Go To War Over Michael Flynn

The network morning shows on Friday pounced on the announcement that Michael Flynn is Donald Trump’s choice for National Security Adviser, immediately branding the Army Lieutenant General “divisive,” “controversial,” fiery” and known for his “infamous” appearance at the 2016 Republican National Convention. In contrast, ABC and NBC saw Barack Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice as “hard-nosed,” “no-nonsense” and a “victim” of the conservative media. On NBC’s Today, Steve Kornacki warned of the Flynn choice: “To call this divisive might be understating the case. If you even talk to Republicans on Capitol Hill, this is a selection they are very uncomfortable with.” Co-host Savannah Guthrie admonished, “It is a key pick and it is not without controversy.”
