NBC's Tom Brokaw blasted Joe Biden's debate antics on Friday's Morning Joe. "I mean he just can't contain himself," note Brokaw. "And he's become a caricature on the talk shows."
"I just don't think you should be laughing during a discussion about
thermonuclear war with Iran," Brokaw called out Biden, who repeatedly
shook his head at opponent Paul Ryan while smiling and laughing. [Video

The ABC and NBC morning shows on Friday showed no interest in fact
checking some of Joe Biden's misstatements during Thursday's vice
presidential debate. CBS This Morning partially debunked some
of Biden's claims, ignoring the Vice President's suggestion that he
opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
During the debate, Biden asserted, "It came from this man [Paul Ryan]
voting to put two wars on a credit card...I was there. I voted against
them. I said, ‘No, we can’t afford that.’" Actually, the then-senator voted to authorize force in both Afghanistan and Iraq. However, this point was ignored by ABC's Good Morning America, NBC's Today and CBS.
