NBC Matt Lauer Gets Slapped Down by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed on Bias Reporting

Reed told Lauer that roads NBC showed leading into his interview, and earlier this week, are not in the city of Atlanta. The city does not have jurisdiction for the interstates that lead through Atlanta, Reed said.

The mayor also said Atlanta made an error in the way it released residents when the storm set in, but not in the way it prepared streets. He said he ordered all Atlanta streets pretreated by 9 a.m. The storm hit after lunchtime.

“If the cameras had focused on city limits, they would have seen that 80 percent were passable,” Reed told Lauer.

Reed: The photos that you are showing right now are not even the city of Atlanta

Lauer: They are the surrounding areas

Reed: Well you need to say that Matt
