NBC has been facing condemnation for days following two separate instances of antisemitism on its network. The two incidents occurred in the same week but on different shows that the network aired.
First, it was this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” where “Weekend Update” host Michael Che asserted Israel had only vaccinated its “Jewish half” of the population. American Jewish Committee’s Avi Mayer said it “promoted antisemitic myths” and called on NBC to apologize. He wasn’t the only one.
The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis Israel Director Tamar Sternthal called on “NBC and SNL to apologize for the blatant antisemitic smear, and to make clear that Israel is providing equal access to the coronavirus vaccine for its entire population, Jews and non-Jews alike,” in a letter send on Monday.
“We also continue to call on MSNBC to forthrightly correct the Israel is ‘burning down Palestinian villages’ falsehoods,” she added, referring to an incident earlier this month.
However, NBC has yet to apologize or take any action. It is all too common, say activists and religious leaders concerned about the growing tide of anti-Semitism in America.
Second and finally, it was an episode in the series Nurses, where an orthodox Jewish patient wouldn’t accept a bone graft he needed because it was coming from “a dead goyim leg.”
Rabbi Yaakov Menken wrote that the episode was “classic Antisemitic propaganda of the most vile kind.”
“Congratulations NBC, you’re now officially competing with the Nazis themselves to see who can do this better,” he said in a tweet.
NBCUniversal couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. This reporter spoke to an operator at NBCUniversal who couldn’t provide any contact information and said SNL’s team couldn’t be reached outside of their daily operating hours.
Deadline confirmed Wednesday that the network removed the Nurses episode from its digital platforms, citing a source who said they had been contacted by a number of Jewish organizations “and were keen to have conversations with them about the topic.”
Watchdog StopAntisemitism.org called the episode “viciously antisemitic” and said it was “filled with lies.”

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation
In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.
The charges against Hunter Biden include:
• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm
• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer
•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance
According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.
Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.
The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.
Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.
Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
