There must be something in the water at NBC News. From out of left-field Wednesday, NBC's senior political director Mark Murray compared the story of wounded war hero Cory Remsburg to Barack Obama's own story. Twelve hours earlier, MSNBC's newest anchor, Ronan Farrow, used Remsburg's wounds to make what is apparently a joke about Congress:
Cory "struggles on the left side." Congress relates.

After the highly-publicized and embarrassing staff problems NBC and MSNBC recently faced with Melissa Harris-Perry, Alec Baldwin, and Martin Bashir, whoever is in charge over there might want to fire off a memo explaining to its on-air talent just how inappropriate it is to use our veterans in any way, much less as a prop to make political statements.
The Washington Free Beacon points out that Farrow's tweet was not received well by his Twitter followers.
