Why Did NBC News Sit on the Trump Tape for So Long?

Stories get held at every news organization, but NBC doesnt look good here, and no amount of finessing will make them look any prettier.

As s the political world ponders whether the past 72 hours have delivered a fatal knockout blow to Donald Trumps presidential campaign, the nations media observers have been bedeviled by a separate question: Why did NBC News hold its story about the uncouth video starring Trump so long that the Washington Posts David Fahrenthold ended up getting the scoop?
Recorded in 2005 for the NBC-owned Access Hollywood entertainment show, the video captures backstage sexual boasting by Trump to the shows co-host, Billy Bush, who goads him on. Once NBC News learned that its Trump tape had been leaked to the Post and the paper was preparing a story, the network aired its own story, getting beat by about 10 minutes.

.

The story has upended the Trump campaign and dominated the opening minutes of Sundays presidential debate.

.

NBC doesnt look good here, and no amount of finessing will make it look any prettier. The NBC News tick-tocks published by the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and CNN portray the network as an overly cautious, lawyer-dominated entity, more interested in protecting its employee Bushwho has recently joined NBCs Today showthan performing like a hard-charging news outlet. It was, after all and in retrospect, the biggest story of the general election. When a secular organization blames the Jewish holidays for its tardiness, as an unattributed NBC News source does in the Times story, somebody is blowing smoke. When the Washington Post, no libel and invasion-of-privacy mill, can turn around the same story in five hours indicates that NBCs frets of legal problems were more imagined than real.

This has not been my experience with media lawyers. To a one, their philosophy has been, How can we get your story published? But in a media conglomerate like Comcast, which owns NBC and a string of federally licensed television stations, the corporate lawyers have more internal constituencies to serve than a free-standing newspaper like the Post, which is owned by one man.

.

Successful condemnation of NBC News would require us to believe that the network wasnt just dragging its feet on the Trump tapes story, but intended to suppress it semi-permanently. Nobody has suggested thisyetbecause by the time the tapes were shared widely within NBC, there too many people were aware of their existence to keep them smothered. Even if an NBC News employee hadnt leaked the tapes, as is presumed, its highly likely that the existence of the tapes would have been leaked, forcing NBC News hand.

.

Im not convinced that Access Hollywood planned to do its Trump tapes story on the Monday after Sunday nights presidential debate, an unattributed fact expressed without challenge in the Times story. But it could be true.
