UPDATE: NBC just deleted their tweet. But thanks to the internet, we have it right here:
Donald Trump Jr. didn’t take too kind to this tweet at all, rebuking NBC for their bias against his father (h/t: DC Examiner):
In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands this should take care of it. The bias against @realDonaldTrump is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it.
Can you trust anything they say at this point?

Trump Jr. wasn’t the only one:
It’s weird to see you celebrate her speech on Weinstein behavior in Hollywood when you basically spiked @RonanFarrow ’s stories that brought it all about and he had to air them elsewhere and pay for a camera crew himself. https://t.co/9I0iyYCO8J— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) January 8, 2018
This tweet puts every reporter at NBC in a bad spot. Foolish thing for them to do. But at least now they are open about their bias. https://t.co/tIQtBodRkS— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) January 8, 2018
How is this a tweet from a national news outlet? https://t.co/a6s4aroHPn— Benny (@bennyjohnson) January 8, 2018
NBC acting like a super PAC https://t.co/EszSN3Iyzw— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) January 8, 2018
Yikes. Now people may start to think NBC staffers, including maybe even reporters, are institutionally irresponsible when it comes to Trump... https://t.co/RCLTLGkR8B— Omri Ceren (@omriceren) January 8, 2018
UPDATE 2: NBC just released a statement on the deleted tweet:
Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast. It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. We have since removed the tweet.— NBC (@nbc) January 8, 2018
