Chris Jansing, NBC News Chief White House Correspondent, filled in as moderator on Meet the Press and did her best to hit Governor Jay Nixon (D-MO) from the left over his handling of the ongoing violence in Ferguson, Missouri. Speaking on Sunday, August 24, Jansing promoted liberal talking points surrounding the police tactics used to stop the violent protests in the Missouri town. The NBC reporter also did her best to ignore Governor Nixon’s recent controversial comments in which he called for a "vigorous prosecution" of the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown.
