NBC News' Chuck Todd Mocks FReeper Over Media Bias Charge
Thursday, September 20, 2012 | Kristinn

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.

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.

Don't usually watch local news, but last night there was a problem at a local theme park.....folks stranded 300feet up in the air for 4 hours. Checked on a local station - missed the report on this incident, but caught the info babe (thanks, Rush) talking about "President Obama" and "Romney".

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
journalistic integrity.

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.

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.

True, I read the local mouth piece for the rat party at my sons house in Haverhill, Mass. 16 Pages 4 of news and filler, mostly Police report, 3 of school happenings, rest classified, and a couple of inserts.

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.

that is some "logic"; so our corporate parents deliberately want us to lose money? N-V-T-S nuts nuts nuts

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.

Look these aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue are the very ones Tom Wolfe wrote about in Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers.

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.

F. Chucky, of course the pollsters are going to tell you what you want to hear, especially pollsters for PMSNBC. They are employed by fanatical liberals [you] and they are very likely liberals themselves.

If Limbaugh didn't bring him up from time to time, I'd never know he existed.

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.

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.

How about it MSM ? you lie with impunity.

The thing is ? Liberalism, the MSM dinosaur is running it's course gasping for air on it's way into the history books.

The best example of them deliberately trowing money at a problem expecting a different result even though they know it's a failure is the public school system, government boondoggle projects.

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.

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.
