Believe me, I didn't go looking in my Sunday morning TV viewing for more evidence of what a journalistically bankrupt operation NBC News had become. It's fish in a barrel these days. Turn to NBC News for almost any given broadcast, and you'll find more proof than you can use of how politicized and lost it has become. But when I heard David Gregory promoting an interview that Cynthia McFadden did with senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett I had to watch. And then, I had to try not to gag as Gregory introduced it by saying, "Our Cynthia McFadden was granted unique access and spent a day behind the scenes with Valerie Jarrett at the White House.

There are certainly hard choices in Iraq ( "Hard choices in Iraq," June 16). Although you didn't mention it, the lack of foresight by the George W. Bush administration to have an "exit" strategy in this war is the main cause. President Barack Obama didn't help by not demanding a Status of Forces Agreement. The big issue now is that Mr. Obama spends more time playing golf and fundraising than tending to his duties, but I am sure Valerie Jarrett is on top of this.

– For days President Obama had been hammered by critics — including Cardinal-designate Edwin F. O'Brien of the Archdiocese of Baltimore — over a regulation in the healthcare law that required religiously affiliated hospitals, charities and universities to provide birth control coverage for female employees even if that conflicted with church teachings. On Friday Obama tried to end the debate with what he called an "accommodation. " The employees still will be offered free birth control coverage.

Americans are losing the insurance they wanted to keep and are being forced to pay more for less as a result of Obamacare. In the meantime, the White House site still makes the claim "If you like your plan you can keep it and you don't have to change a thing due to the health care law. " This turned out to be a big lie by the Obama administration. Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to the president, tweeted, "FACT: Nothing in Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans.

A group of mayors that met with President-elect Barack Obama's transition team this week pushed for the federal government to send aid directly to the nation's cash-strapped cities rather than routing it through the states, Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon said at a news conference yesterday. "That is just one of the big issues that every mayor talked about," Dixon said. "If you eliminate money going through the state, it really provides more to the local jurisdictions." Dixon was one of 13 mayors who met with Valerie Jarrett, a senior Obama adviser, in Chicago on Thursday morning.

WASHINGTON - A campaign to persuade Republicans to support President Barack Obama's budget is morphing into something broader, with the White House political machine and its allies focusing pressure on conservative Democrats and anyone else who might be tempted to vote no.
