The term "mainstream media" gets thrown around a lot these days. It's become synonymous with anti-conservative bias. So when a member of that conclave is willing to say something unflattering about the president, it can be surprising.

Enter Richard Engel.

Engel is a longtime foreign correspondent for NBC. After Tuesday night's State of the Union address, anchor Brian Williams asked him what he thought of the speech, especially the foreign policy parts.

“It sounded like the president was outlining a world that he wishes we were all living in but which is very different from the world that you just described," Engel said.

He went on to criticize Obama's talk about the Islamic State, Syria and the Middle East in general, adding that Obama had "suspended disbelief" and that there are "not a lot of success stories to be talking about in foreign policy right now."
