Skip to comments.NBC’s Chuck Todd: Media knew how ‘hated’ Hillary was in heartland and we ‘underplayed’ it
Posted on 01/27/2017 11:11:15 AM PST by ColdOne
NBCs Chuck Todd confessed that he and others in the mainstream news media played down just how despised Hillary Clinton was in the heartland due to the fear of appearing sexist.
Whats more, he admitted, the mainstream media failed to tell the stories of all Americans.
Where I think political correctness got in the way of what we all knew as reporters and didnt fully deliver was how hated the Clintons were in the heartland, the Meet the Press host admitted Thursday to former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in a interview for the 1947 podcast.

Fake News Alert!
Media admitting their own prejudice and why they can’t be trusted.
Wait, What, a moment of honesty... oh my
No one cares what he thinks NOW.
So your policy of only reporting negative news on Republicans and positive news on Democrats bit you in the ass Upchuck. This is why you aren’t trusted.
Chucky, if you keep confessing like this you’ll be kicked out of the Ministry of Propaganda.
Nothing they hate more than the truth.
We don`t need you or the rest of the media to “tell us stories”Chuck. Report the truth and we`ll take it from there. It really is just that simple.
But we DID despise her.That part is not fake
They all knew how hated Hillary is - they opted to try to bury it and Trump leveraged their fake news to his (our) advantage. She was the worst candidate ever and they all know it. I’m thanking God she was their nominee.
Hillary isn’t hated.
Trump is hated.
He’s only telling half the story.
It would really help FR if every post had a FAKE NEWS indicator. I would love to filter out the fake stuff to see just the REAL NEWS.
“No member of the press corps wants to look like theyre singling out a group and making a group feel bad, right, whatever that [group] is.”
Are they really that clueless????? Do they even listen to themselves????? That statement might apply to one of their revered and “sainted” depraved groups they support, but Christians? Conservatives? Etc.? Could have fooled me... /sarc
Funny. That didn't stop them from viciously attacking Sarah Palin. The media types even lie when confessing a previous lie.
Where's the outrage/ridicule!
And day after day and poll after poll, the media said people love Trump less than Hillary.
Well, that’s a lot more honestly than we get from a lot of the propaganda corps - like Dan rather
What do I think we did wrong in this election? The biggest thing is we didnt tell the stories of all Americans, Mr. Todd said. We told the stories of coastal Americans. And ultimately, thats like the larger trust issue.
Another way to say it is the media was totally biased.
And another way would be it was so biased it was working directly to help the DNC.
And yet another way would be it was so biased it was working directly FOR the DNC.
And yet even another way to say it would be the media bias is so strong that it is now effectively the propaganda arm of the DNC.
