NBC Passes Off Biden Supporters as “Undecided Voters” During Biden Town-Hall Event

Headlines Politics U.S.

NBC featured two undecided voters during a town-hall presidential election event with Democrat nominee Joe Biden. But the two had previously declared their support for Biden on MSNBC.

Peter Gonzalez, an attorney, and Ismael Llano, a marketing executive, both asked Biden questions during the town hall event. The network marketed the attendees as an “audience of undecided Florida voters.”

Gonzalez and Llano were part of a MSNBC segment in August in which they detailed their support for Biden.

“If we get four more years of Trump, good luck, and good luck with the future attracting younger voters,” Gonzalez said. Llano was also identified as “voting for Biden” and offered praise for the former vice president.

During the town-hall event, NBC’s Lester Holt said that Llano “voted for Hillary Clinton four years ago but has voted Republican in the past.” Gonzalez asked how Biden would guarantee the Democratic Party doesn’t become beholden to the “radical left.”
