    In a ridiculous discussion that sounded as though it belonged in a forum of a left-wing website, the panel on Sunday’s Meet the Press bemoaned how the country’s attitude towards women cost Hillary Clinton the White House. Moderator Chuck Todd read from the recent NYT column of Nicholas Kristof, who described Clinton’s idea of Trump voters as “I don’t agree with him, I’m not sure I really approve of him, but he looks like somebody who’s been president before.” Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that “she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it’s been analyzed by many...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd said President Donald Trump must accept “the fact” that Russia interfered in this election or he will be “on the brink of becoming a temporary lame duck presidency.” Todd said, “You have a presidency right now that I think is, it’s beyond saying it’s in crisis mode, it’s, you know, it’s on the brink, the question is on the brink of what? Is it on the brink of collapse? Is it on the brink of becoming a temporary lame duck presidency? Maybe it feels lame-duckish temporarily right...
  • Documents: Hillary Clinton May Have Killed Investigations into Pedophile Ring at State Dept.

    While I am skeptical of where this will lead, it is noteworthy to see that this report comes from NBC and more specifically Chuck Todd.  In a report earlier this week, NBC reported that there were allegations that while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the quashed investigations into a prostitution and pedophile ring that was operating inside the department in order to avoid scandal and protect high-ranking employees and an ambassador. “Serious allegations concerning the State Department,” the NBC anchor said.  “According to internal State Department memos the agency might have called off or intervened into investigations into possibly...

    “I think it’s clear mainstream media needs to do a better job of reporting on rural America.” – Chuck Todd, NBC News Despite the fact that Stella was a blockbuster - dropping up to 4 feet of snow along with wind gusts over hurricane force throughout  many rural areas in the East -  you haven’t heard much about it. “Where’s the snowblower?” “Right outside the door, honey.”That’s primarily due to the fact that New York City was spared. And despite what Chuck Todd said everybody knows that NYC is the epicenter of the country and nothing outside it’s borders...
  • MTP: Tom Cotton Schools Chuck Todd About Relying Too Much on Anonymous Sources

    Things arguably got a little embarrassing for NBC moderator Chuck Todd during Sunday’s Meet the Press, after Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton had to explain to him that the claims of anonymous sources should be taken with a grain of salt. “Anonymous sources said Steve Bannon drove from the White House to the Department of Homeland Security to confront John Kelly, which we now know is not the truth,” Cotton reminded Todd, “That’s not like the tone of a conversation, that’s someone’s physical whereabouts.” Cotton’s schooling of Todd came as the NBC moderator pressed the Senator on when the media could...

    RUSH: I want to thank F. Chuck Todd of NBC for opening my eyes to this. For the longest time I’ve been genuinely curious why it is that media people think that they cannot be criticized. And they really do. They really think they can go out and research people and they can dig up dirt from anybody they want, their pasts, and they can broadcast it all over. And if somebody’s life, somebody’s marriage, somebody’s relationship, somebody’s kid gets destroyed or ruined, fine and dandy. They can do all of that they want, but you turn it around and...

    Appearing on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Friday, former United Nations ambassador John Bolton blasted NBC’s Chuck Todd for taking to Twitter on Thursday to attack President Trump’s “un-American” criticism of the media during a press conference: “I thought that tweet was one of the most foolish things I've seen from the media in a long time, and you know, that's a pretty low bar there. The media is not entitled to worship.” He continued: “It's not entitled to respect as an institution. It’s not entitled to deference by political leaders. It is entitled under the First Amendment to say what...

    NBC News anchor Chuck Todd said "press bashing" is not a fit activity for a president, just moments after President Trump laid into several reporters at the White House in his first solo press conference as president. Trump assailed the "dishonest" media for doing "a tremendous disservice to the American people." After, Todd warned that "this is not a laughing matter." He added, "I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is un-American."

    With One Tweet, Chuck Todd Reveals The Truth About the Mainstream Media It’s always the people inside a bubble who think they’re the ones with an outsider’s perspective on things. The mainstream media fits this profile perfectly. The big name press continue to deny there is anything wrong with the way they do things, or the things they choose to do. NBC’s Chuck Todd, for example, is happy to blame Donald Trump for his profession’s problems and abdicate any responsibility. They all are.Todd sent out this tweet when President Trump was going after the media during his press conference...

    Chuck Todd and the other journalists at NBC are openly fuming that Donald Trump continues to call out the biased coverage of his administration. During Thursday’s press conference, an angry Todd tweeted, “This not a laughing matter. I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is un-American.” He later whined, “Press bashing may feel good to folks but when it's done by people in power, it's corrosive. Take off your partisan hats for a second.” During live coverage, Lester Holt chided, “It was contentious. It was ugly at moments and we haven't seen anything like it.”

    In a tweet sent during President Donald Trump‘s Thursday press conference, MSNBC host Chuck Todd indicated he didn’t find the bizarre hour-long back-and-forth with reporters all that humorous. The Meet the Press host live tweeted the spectacle, at times sending tweets that indicated he didn’t believe the president was telling the truth, and that the rambling press conference would damage his relationship with Congress. {..snip..}

    NBC’s 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.” What’s 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 didn’t 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.

    Hugh Hewitt sets up Tom Barrack's Sunday "Meet the Press" interview with Chuck Todd and himself. Mr. Barrack is the Chairman of the Inaugural Committee and says that his team was responsible for providing the White House with the crowd numbers. Not included was Chris Matthews noting how reasonable and intelligent Barrack is and follows that up with saying Trump is the same way in person. Adding that Trump is a great listener as well. Matthews continues to say that the public gets a Trump that everyone who personally has met and knows him does not recognize. You can watch...

    Which explains his meltdown on Sunday Yeah, “alternate facts” made me cringe too. But maybe not for the same reason it made you cringe. I understand what Kellyanne Conway was trying to say in her exchange with Chuck Todd, and on substance she absolutely had the better of the argument. That’s why it’s so frustrating to see what happens when the Trump team gets into these shouting matches with blowhards like Todd. You use one ill-advised term - and yes, “alternate facts” was very ill-advised - and it takes all the focus off the fact that Todd’s position was indefensible.

    Blind squirrel finds nut. ...Sort of Barring a miracle or a disaster, President Trump’s nominees are going to be confirmed. There’s essentially nothing the Democrats can do to stop it. So, when Chuck Schumer admits that “in all probability” Mike Pompeo will become the next CIA director, he’s really soft-selling the situation. Still, Chuck is Chuck. If he can make things more difficult for the new administration - even the slightest bit - he’s going to do it. It’s pointless, vain, and doomed to fail, but that’s the plan. ...And, lo and behold, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has...

    During a discussion of BuzzFeed’s story on a dossier regarding Russia and President-Elect Donald Trump on Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” host Chuck Todd told BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith “you just published fake news.” Todd said BuzzFeed’s decision to publish the dossier was an instance where they “would not have made the same decision in the pre-Trump era.” Smith stated that it was more “the pre-Internet era.” And that there was a time “where we could act as gatekeepers. Where we could say, you know what, crazy people are claiming that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is forged, but we’re...

    Chuck Todd, the moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” told Politico’s “Off Message” podcast earlier this month that President-elect Donald Trump was a “salesman” and has an ultimate goal to be “popular.” Todd said of Trump, “He is a marketer. He is a salesman. I’ve never met a salesman that didn’t exaggerate or worse. And one of the things we have to remember about him because it’s the salesman mentality. He will never say a negative word about you in person. To your face. he will always compliment—always find a way to compliment. It’s every salesman trick in the book,...

    One of the big changes of the new Trump era is that when the mainstream media attempts to promote fake news, there will be consequences. And one of the consequences is that the purveyors of such fake news will be humiliated on national television as happened on both Saturday and Sunday over whether Russia hacked the Republican National Committee as was claimed in a Friday New York Times fake news story.RNC Chairman and incoming White House Chief of Staff for President-elect Donald Trump, Reince Priebus, went way beyond merely schooling Chuck Todd on Sunday's Meet The Press. He flat out nailed him to...
