Google: NBCNews Trouble With GoogleBot?

He wrote, "NBCNews website vs. GoogleBot" followed by a screen shot showing how GoogleBot was only able to pull the title of the page but not the content or the image.

Here is his image:

The weird thing is that later, I tried it, and GoogleBot had no issues crawling the content and images on that page:

I guess GoogleBot figured it out or maybe NBCNews had a temporary glitch?
