| A Refreshing Return to Objective Journalism
I've been watching NBC Nightly News for the majority of my life, and have found Lester Holt to be the best host thus far. In an era plagued by partisanship from the shameless far-right bias and downright promotion of falsehoods on Fox News, to the solid leftward bend of MSNBC, Lester Holt provides a return to the era objective news so many Americans long for. Holt and the team of correspondents consistently manage to push aside politics and their own political beliefs (many of which can be easily found simply by watching them on MSNBC during the day) to provide coverage that only the most partisan of partisan hacks could describe as biased. I myself identify as a proud Democrat, but perhaps to my surprise recently I found out that Lester Holt had been a registered Republican for most of his life up until 2018. The fact that I never noticed this while watching, and would never describe Holt's coverage as "too conservative" or "right leaning" is a true testament to his character. For anyone who feels lost and disaffected by the partisanship of Fox and MSNBC, or just the sensationalism of CNN, I highly recommend this newscast. Lester Holt has, and will continue to be one of the greats.
