Chuck Todd: Embarrassed By JournoList or Not?
Publius Forum ^ | 07/30/10 | Warner Todd Huston

Today two stories have recently appeared reporting NBC Political Director Chuck Todd's reaction to the revelations of the JournoList, that website were avowed left-wing journalists congregated to talk about their profession and plot to foster a left-wing agenda in their work in the media.

Todd was reported to have found the JournoList revelations to be "very depressing" and said that the story had "kept him up nights" because of the overt leftist bias evinced by the list member's emails released by Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller website.

“Journolist was pretty offensive. Those of us who are mainstream journalists got mixed in with journalists with an agenda. Those folks who thought they were improving journalism are destroying the credibility of journalism."
But later that day another story claiming that Todd was taken out of context emerged that told a slightly different tale. In the afternoon fellow JouronLista Greg Sargent wrote in the Washington Post that Todd was more upset at the conservatives that were using the JournoList controversy to push their agenda and was much less upset that the story revealed a left-wing media conspiracy.

In other words, Journolist rides again to "spin" the news to their talking points rather than reality.

"Those of us who are mainstream journalists..."

Chuck Todd - you are NOT a mainstream journalist. You are a left-wing hack, a water-carrier for Democrats at the expense of freedom-loving Americans.

You are NOT EVEN a "Journalist." You are forever, a Jour-NO-list!
