House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was among the U.S. delegation in Normandy, France on the 75th anniversary of D-Day, and during her interview with NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell, the Trump-era “journalism” was apparent:

Via Mediaite, Mitchell couldn’t serve up a question for Pelosi without some of the requisite editorializing that’s so much more common these past two and a half years:
“I was here when Ronald Reagan was here in 1984. For all the disagreements over how to handle missile deployments, there were a lot of tensions then. We didn’t have the divisions with Europe that we have now. America is less respected in Europe than at any time in post-war history,” Mitchell said.
“Let’s throw on the positive possibilities. I think every one should re-read Ronald Reagan’s speech of that day. It’s beautiful. It talks about the importance of alliances and working together,” Pelosi responded.
And that sparked a good question:
Which one is the politician and which one is the “journalist?”

It sure can be hard to tell sometimes.
It's pretty bad when the journalist is saying the thing that the politician would be expected to say. https://t.co/gA52IIY7e8

Andrea Mitchell is an embarrassment, even Pelosi wouldn’t go along with her hack interview.https://t.co/SKanU0W8R0

That’s not an uncommon reaction to the MSM.
