NBC Frets Over GOP ‘Taking Aim’ at Clinton Aide (NewsBusters)

On Monday, NBC’s Today devoted a full report to Donald Trump and Republican members of Congress criticizing longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Fill-in co-host Willie Geist declared: “One of Hillary Clinton's top aides, Huma Abedin, is in the headlines this morning, with Republican lawmakers and Donald Trump taking aim at her position, and in Trump’s case, her marriage.”

In the report that followed, correspondent Kristen Welker touted Abedin as one of “Hillary Clinton's closest confidants” and “a second daughter.” Welker then noted that the campaign adviser “is facing some of the same ethical questions that are plaguing Clinton” and “became the target of an attack usually saved for candidates.”
