Staffers at NBC News are scandalized( and a bit muddled) after President Trump viciously criticized their network’s White House correspondent, Peter Alexander, at Friday’s coronavirus briefing. Alexander, if you didn’t hear, expected Trump what he would say to Americans who are feared amid the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of refuting, Trump respondedby rejecting the issues( “nasty” ), affecting Alexander( “terrible” ), and assailing NBC News’ parent busines Comcast( “Con-Cast” ).
