Skip to comments.NBC News' Chuck Todd Mocks FReeper Over Media Bias Charge
Posted on 09/20/2012 5:47:48 PM PDT by kristinn
NBC News reporter Chuck Todd mocked this FReeper on Twitter tonight for my pointing out that the media would rather lose money than cater to conservative consumers of news. The conversation started over a comment by Slater reporter Dave Weigel on media bias in polls:
Do people actually think news networks would pay for unreliable polls with bad samples b/c they love Obama so much? Don't answer that.
I replied: News media has deliberately alienated conservatives, willfully losing money to further liberalism. Skewed polls just a part.
Weigel retweeted my comment with a slight modification to his 75,849 followers: MT @KristinnFR: Media has deliberately alienated conservatives, losing money to further liberalism. Skewed polls just a part.
Chuck Todd chimed with his comment that went to his 245,862 followers: that is some "logic"; so our corporate parents deliberately want us to lose money? N-V-T-S nuts nuts nuts (N-V-T-S is a Ron Carey reference from the Roman Empire section of Mel Brook's film History of the World Part One.)
I replied to Todd: Newsweek. Sold for a buck to keep it out of conservative hands.
Someone else asked for empiracle evidence. I told him: Proof is in market place. Conservative radio, internet, news empires built to meet demand eschewed by MSM.
Chuck Todd got permission from Jay Carney to reply to a FReeper earlier today....
the 4th estate is a 5th column.
You are truly in the thick of it. Good job!
Good job. I recall that the New York Times refused an offer from a conservative buyer.
Sometimes the leftist put their agenda ahead of making money or even political popularity.
Clinton was such an anti-gun zealot that he supported the assault weapon ban even tho he knew it would hurt him. I do suspect he didn’t expect the results of the 94 elections tho.
That is the only thing keeping Obama from trying to get more gun control passed.
Almost threw something at the TV.
Chuck Todd’s sponsors get IRS tax breaks (zero taxes
previously through GE) exactly for their
absolute support of all things Obama,
the DNC and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac.
No one in America believes Todd and NBC anymore.
They have wasted the all confidence of what once was
It’s true, they would They’ve been alienating the non-PC crowd for decades, and they know it. They also know that’s the monied class, the advertisers, the subscriber base, yet they continue to promote a one-sided PC agenda of the lowest of the lowlife.
Chuck Todd is a poofter with an average intellect and an extroadinary opinion of his bad self. WGAS what he tweets.
Fox is #1 in audience. Why aren’t they copying success?
These people and their organizations are too stupid to survive.
The MSM has become nothing more than a propaganda arm for Dear Reader and they know it.
They no longer have any credibility. Nor should they.
Hey chuckie, see the emperor’s interview with Univision today if you ever want to know what a unbiased reporter looks and sounds like.
In less than a year, Today show host Matt Lauers likability has plummeted 25%, according to the Q Scores, an influential survey used by companies and advertisers to help make major decisions.
Kris...I have been killing Todd’s twitter all night long...totally cornering him as well...been a lot of fun...have a few hrs to kill tonight...think I will keep it up!
Like throwing holy water on a vampire.
Naturally they deny the evidence that goes against their dogma. It is after all, the Obama way. Eventually they will jump ship...as soon as they can do it and make it seem like it was their idea all along.
But they live in a bubble, so until that happens, YOU are the crazy one. The bubble says so.
When Bush claimed to end Operation Mockingbird as the new head of the CIA he welcomed voluntary unpaid cooperation of journalists.
The media has a long history of promoting agendas.
You should have made fun of his front comb over hair.
F Chuck Toad’s polls are fake but accurate. Just ask Dan RaThEr.................
Good work, kristinn. You’re long overdue for another FReeper award.
Years ago, Ten, they did 30 pages with real content, propaganda, for the local rats. I don't see them around much longer, nothing there.
Whenever the news is bad for Obama, Todd is famous for tweeting sports scores. And then get back to regular programming of slamming Romney/GOP.
Don’t forget to get your shots updated if you insist on playing with the rabid
His mug reminds me of the south end of a north bound alpaca.
1.) Is Chuck Todd admitting that news outfits' corporate parents DO manipulate the news for profit?
2.) It's perfectly reasonable for a company to willingly suffer a loss in one product or segment in order to profit elsewhere. Large corporations profit from fascist statism that subsidizes them and protects them from free market competition. They would happily lose some ad revenue in their news divisions in exchange for that.
They are the flak chuckers.. today masquerading as fact checkers; they are who Lincoln described watching us from "the other side"
You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.
Why would I? What can NBC teach or show anyone other than progressive dogma and propaganda?
Screw them and their sponsors. I don't need or want any of them and won't knowingly support them in any way.
I think Kristinn and the rest of you who go after all these mainstream media libs on Twitter are great. Keep up the good work.
I did follow F Chuck Todd on twitter up until last weekend when he was going over the top ripping Rommey for his Libya comments. You remember, the ones that lost him the election before his secret video comments this week that lost him the election. These of course are before he has his first debate, that the media will pronounce lost him the election next week.
You are correct that Todd starts tweeting sports crap on days where Obama is having a bad news cycle. Challenge him to report on POTUS when he starts in with the sports crap.
Love it. Following you on Twitter now, too!
Hey Chuck, two words....
You make a good point. They don’t even try to compete for the conservative audience.
The answer was “yes” a parent company of MSNBC, GE, willfully loses money to get acquisition rights to sweetheart deals from the Obama administration.
MSNBC Commentators Hide Their Corporate GE Bosses Fed Bailout
O’Reilly Claims ‘Corruption’: GE Using CNBC, MSNBC to Promote Cap-and-Trade for Financial Gain
No, but MSNBC caters to a far left kook audience and manages to attract a few hundred thousand viewers and at times a million or more. And the other lap dog networks play the same game, only with a little more finesse than MSNBC.
They're playing to a target audience, with some moderate success.
I do appreciate that reporters make themselves available on Twitter for questions, comments, snarks and criticism. Mark Knoller is everyone’s fave for live news reporting. Others expose their bias with some of their tweets.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.
I would ask Todd: “Isn’t the MSM afraid that the Republicans will eventually tire of the bias enough to use the antitrust laws to bust up the media oligopoly?”
It get’s better than that, when there is a very serious important event or news happening ? they open up with lame irreverent news like the price of tea in china or stories as filler material to keep any news that would make Obama, or them look bad off the news.
They have been monitoring FR since Kristenn came on board, ask JR for verification.
