The 2022 NFL season begins on Thursday with the Buffalo Bills visiting the Los Angeles Rams, and as a result, NBC’s “Today” show is getting in on the coverage.

Beginning this week, “Today” will debut special coverage of the NFL, including exclusive behind-the-scenes access in a brand new series titled “Inside The Game” (h/t TV Newser).

“Today’s” series will grant fans an inside glimpse at each week’s NFL matchup on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. Anchors and correspondents for the morning show will feature on-the-ground coverage of NFL teams and players across the country.

“Today” will have a watch party for the Bills-Rams game on Thursday night at Rockefeller Plaza, co-hosted by Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.

On Sunday, Guthrie will then travel to Arlington, TX, providing never-before-seen game day access at AT&T Stadium. Additionally, Guthrie will be on the field, in the locker room, and in the stands as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off against the Dallas Cowboys. 

Last year NBC and the NFL negotiated a new 11-year $2 billion contract, which runs through 2033. As a result, NBC wants to get the most out of this agreement with the league. 

Here are other highlights fans can expect from “Inside The Game”: 

  • Friday, September 9: Craig Melvin joins the Buffalo Bills and shares what it’s like to take an NFL team on the road.
  • Monday, September 19: “Today” gets special access to Green Bay’s Lambeau Field as it gets fan-ready for the game against the Chicago Bears.
  • Monday, September 26: Sheinelle Jones will report from Denver and give fans an inside look at the iconic Bronco mascot.
  • Monday, October 3: “Today” highlights the Kansas City Chiefs v. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game.
  • Monday, October 10: “Today” profiles Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker during the Cincinnati Bengals v. Ravens game.

Mehdi Hasan: ‘Liberal Media’ Downplayed New Italian Prime Minister’s ‘Ties to Fascism’

“How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things?”

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan took aim at the “quote unquote liberal media” for its lack of criticism of new Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and her ties to fascism.

The Mehdi Hasan Show host began Sunday’s show by defending a recent tweet discussing Meloni’s victory in Italy’s election, and the problematic nature of some of her comments.

He mentioned he expected Republicans to embrace the new Italian Prime Minister, saying they are “at best, to quote the President, semi-fascist themselves”.

Hasan continued by saying “what has been so depressing, is just how much of the quote unquote liberal media — the mainstream media — are giving her a pass or playing down her and her party’s fascist roots, focusing more on the fact that she is female, and less on the fact that she is a fascist. That has been deeply, deeply depressing to see.”

He concluded by equating headlines from The Washington Post and The New York Times, among others, to those surrounding the 2020 election that said Donald Trump wouldn’t participate in a coup attempt.

“Look, I have a humble suggestion for many of my colleagues in the quote unquote liberal media,” Hasan said while he ended his monologue. “How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things? People who want to overturn elections and ban Muslims. People who, as in the case of Italy’s next Prime Minister, spout great replacement theory, while running a political party that has a direct connection back to Benito Mussolini himself? Can we try doing that? Please?”

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld expressed outrage at the way some media outlets cover stories of random violence being carried out against innocent people. 

During “The Five” on Friday, Gutfeld said that he believed the viewing public is becoming numb to stories in which innocent people are hurt. 

“These things are happening with such mundane patterns or activity that we’ve gotten used to it,” he said. “Also, the media is not interested in [covering] it. We are doing it, but I don’t think this is on MSNBC or CNN, but I don’t know that because I don’t watch them.” 

Gutfeld was referencing the story of a New York City Emergency Medical Service, Lt. Alison Russo-Elling, who was stabbed to death by a random stranger. Russo-Elling was heralded for her service during 9/11. She worked for the city for 25 years.  

“It seems like the mainstream media is too interested in racism, activism, and pronouns and then when they do their stories, they just go onto Twitter to see how clever they can be.” 

“This woman survived 9/11 but couldn’t survive a trip to the bodega,” he said. “The crazy person aspect is becoming this thing with every story.” 

Gutfeld added that elected officials care about stories like this when their job is up. 

“They don’t care about people in marginal populations like the drug addicted or homeless,” he added. “The people that are committing a lot of these crimes are complete cowards.”
