Skip to comments.NBC's Chuck Todd: Susan Rice 'victim' of conservative 'advocacy media'

NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd today called U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice a "victim" of conservative "advocacy media" while addressing her decision to withdraw from consideration for secretary of state.
"She became victim of the attacks. ... and it was all driven, in many cases, by conservative outlets who were making her the center of the Benghazi story," Todd told MSNBC's Martin Bashir. "There were legitimate questions to ask about the Benghazi story, but the idea that she belonged in the center of those attacks never made a lot of sense. She sort of became a victim of this.
"It's too easy now in the way our media landscape is set up: You can become collateral damage in a hurry, in the way you can just get piled on whether it's Twitter, whether its advocacy journalism, talk radio. ... That's what she was. Make no mistake, she was political collateral damage," Todd said.

Susan Rice is a “victim” of low personal ethics.
Obviously Chucky Bumps didn't get up in time to watch those five Sunday morning shows where Rice tried to blame a goofy YouTube video for Barry's stand down at Benghazi.
Andrea Mitchell must have gotten the same talkingpoints memo.
I was channel surfing and caught a few moments of NBC Nightly News.
Andrea Mitchell was reporting on Rices request to not be considered for the SoS position. Mitchell was claiming the mean ole obstructionist Republicans who were threatening to oppose Rices nomination as being behind Rices decision to not seek the position.
Mitchells allegations to blame the Republicans was extremely convoluted, but she gave the report with a straight face.
Truth is the victim of the Orwell-Stream Media.
Susan prostituted her high position of authority for some stupid political points on behalf of brocko. You just don’t do that. The fact that her points were bald-faced lies did not help.
These people don’t think. They’re brocko-bots.
Hey Chuck Todd, I never saw you defend Mia Love or Allen West who were being called every nasty, disgusting name in the book by the left. Hey Chuck, here’s an idea, type in Mia Love on twitter and see what your lefties have said about her..the use of the N word would make the seasoned racist blush..but oh yeah I forgot, West and Love both deserved it since they are both black Conservatives, therefore they are not considered to be human beings according to leftist scum

Pssssst- Chucky- Susan rice is a victim of the ignorance o nthe left- which you have amply provided evidence of
What conservative media? Oh FOX? Sort of.
Criminal Marxist that brings death where she goes.
She is a person of low character.
She took one for “the team”....she chose the wrong team.
Oddly enough, NBC never asked those questions: not the day of the attacks when everyone with common sense concluded that the rape/murder of our ambassador was a planned terrorist attack, not the same day in the face of a White House trial balloon that the attack was a negative film review complete with coordinated mortar fire, not when Susan Rice days later explained what happened with answers that made no logical sense and that were contradicted by obvious facts, and not today when NBC finally admits that there were "legitimate questions" but still fails to inquire regarding the answers to those questions. Journalism has a long and sad history of dishonest, one-sided reporting. Any brief shining moment of professionalism and integrity in the past has been totally obscured by a level of bias that even Joseph Goebbels would not have dared to order.
And what were those 4 Americans who died needlessly in Benghazi victims of?
Just caught a few moments of another Democrat spokesperson, a Black Woman of course, on Hannity.
She not only blamed the mean old Republicans, she singled out John McCain for his comments regarding Rice. I guess that means RINO McCain is a Racist just like those Tea Party GOP guys.
Talk to the DEMs. She had the votes in the Senate. Why back out?
Well, at least he's not biased!
My dad, a career military oficer, always told me that truth is the first victim of war.
Not even Hillarious Klinton believes that she is capable of Sect. of State so , why the uproar ?
“We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue. ... The only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield.” — George Orwell, March 22, 1946 ( by Kaslin )
There is no surprise here. Of course NBC would see nothing wrong with Rice lying through her teeth about what happened. NBC does it all the time.
