Chuck Todd Calls Biden’s Staff Influencing Pool Reports An ‘Outrage,’
Mediaite ^ | 12:18 pm, August 16th, 2012 | by Noah Rothman |

On Thursday, Chuck Todd, NBC News’ White House Correspondent and Political Director, called a Politico report which revealed that Vice President Joe Biden’s staff actively attempted to edit pool reports, which are used to inform reporters about events on the campaign trail, an “outrage.” He said that the system of distributing pool reports through political staffers may have to change as a result of Biden’s staffer’s behavior.

Politico reporter Jonathan Martin, who originally reported the infraction by Biden’s staffers, said the attempted influencing of pool reports was “unheard of.”

“The Biden aides are trying to edit wants in there while it’s being drafted, and then after you send it to them reviewing it and looking for potential land mines,” said Martin.

“And the only reason it gets sent through them – and I think we’re going to have to change this system – this is an outrage that they do this,” said Todd. “The only reason why we send it through them is it’s the fastest distribution vehicle.”

“It’s for us and by us,” said Washington Post political editor Chris Cillizza, shaking his head. “It’s remarkable.”

“The Biden staff is determined to police him and to really save him from himself,” Martin concluded.

Four years ago the MSM told us Palin was the unqualified VP candidate.

...most – not some – members of the print media establishment with access to the White House submit their copy to government officials for review, “correction” and approval before it reaches the American people!...

You almost sympathize with the staffers. Trying to dress up Slow Joe for public appearance is an impossible job.

Is it all part of Obama’s campaign to drop Slow Joe and add some drama to his floundering by adding Hillary or some other socialist?

Is Chuck U Todd a Clintonite or an Obmamatron?

I will never assume these people mean what they say, but rather always have a motive.

I think this is more a case of a media propaganda bot faking outrage to deflect attention from the fact they have been caught doing what they always denied doing before.

These guys aren’t just saying this 4 YEARS LATER for nothing.

You are telling me that all of the gaffs from 2008 to now were all hush-hush, but all of a sudden it’s “OMG, how dare you”?
