DescriptionHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Sunday that one of the priorities of NBC is to undermine her prospects to be speaker of the House again.

Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, who filled in for anchor Joy Reid on NBC's sister network MSNBC, asked Pelosi whether she would consider allowing another Democrat to take over as the leader in the House. She responded by going straight at NBC's journalistic practices.

"First of all, I know NBC has been on a jag, this is one of their priorities to undermine my prospects as speaker," Pelosi said.

Capehart asked Pelosi about the growing number of Democrats who are running for Congress who've publicly stated they wouldn't support Pelosi becoming speaker. NBC News reported that over 50 Democratic candidates are opposing Pelosi, including nine incumbents.
