— NBC Nightly News (@NBCNightlyNews) January 30, 2017
Lester Holt is anchoring tonight’s NBC Nightly News with the Statue of Liberty in the background.
Holt explained why thusly:
“In many ways, it’s become a symbol of a country right now wrestling to reconcile its creed versus its security needs.”
So yes, with much debate going on about the president’s U.S. entry ban on refugees and individuals from 7 predominantly Muslim nations, the newscast decided the symbolism of the Statue of Liberty was of particular relevance.
