Criticism

Some media newsroom insiders have questioned Meredith Vieira's objectivity, claiming that some of her past reporting includes a liberal slant. [4] [5]

Rush Limbaugh

Vieira was interviewing Wesley Clark about comments Rush Limbaugh made about the phony soldier incident. Vieira said "why don't you just brush off these comments by Limbaugh like an annoying gnat instead of legitimizing them and bringing more attention to them?" [6]

Afghanistan War

Vieira interviewed Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai and she seemed so convinced that the U.S. had lost the war in Afghanistan she was perplexed when Karzai didn't share her assessment of failure. [7]
