NBC News had its “fact-checkers” doing live “fact checks” during the debate, but they only seemed to be checking one candidate: Donald Trump. And, unsurprisingly, the NBC News team declared every one of Trump’s statements they “fact-checked” to be false.
First was when talking about Hillary Clinton wiped her secret email server clean:

Clinton used “BleachBit,” a program designed to ensure data recovery is nearly impossible, to wipe her server. Trump said Clinton “bleached” her server, but he didn’t use the program’s full name. For this, NBC News declared his statement false.
Next was Trump’s response to Clinton’s claim Russia was hacking Democrats’ communications because they want to help Trump.
