NBC News Anchor Chuck Todd Criticized Over Comments About Republican Disinformation

Published

on

Mainstream media outlets aren’t exactly shy about the biases they have toward the left, especially since President Trump was elected back in 2016, but it seems some folks care less about objectivity than others, going out of their way to bash Republicans and practically anyone who disagrees with the way they see the world.

NBC Host Chuck Todd, for example, is coming under heavy fire for comments he made stating that Republicans have “an incentive structure to utter the misinformation” connected to Russia.

Todd spoke with Rolling Stone for an interview that was originally published last week but Axios reported an excerpt on Thursday that put the piece back in the news. The “Meet the Press” moderator was asked about a recent interview with Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who was accused by Rolling Stone’s Peter Wade of using “Russian talking points to defend Trump.” Wade then asked why Republicans are willing to go on the NBC News political show and spread disinformation.

“The fact is, and by the way, this isn’t going to be easy to show, but I actually think when we outline this it will, the right has an incentive structure to utter the misinformation,” Todd said.

“Look, I’ll just be honest, when I had the third senator [to spread Russian disinformation], Sen. Ted Cruz, come on my show and do this — who I did not expect to do this — I started to think, he wants the confrontation. He wants to use this for some sort of appeasement of the right,” Todd continued. “I didn’t know what else to think. I was stunned because he’s a Russia hawk.”

“So I do think one of the things that I want to explore on this is the incentive structure. One of the things we don’t fully appreciate in mainstream media on these attacks is that it’s become fun to attack the press, if that makes sense, on the right. It doesn’t matter if we’re right or wrong, attack them anyway,” Todd said. “People that are the loudest chanters of fake news and accusatory of us are the ones who, under a lie detector, would probably take our word over any word they’ve heard from the other side on whether something was poisonous or not.”

These comments did not go over well with folks on both sides of the political spectrum.

Dan Gainor, vice president of Media Research Center told Fox News, “Wow, what an interview. The kindest thing I can say is it’s delusional. Chuck thinks Trump has turned media bias into ‘sport.’ He never connects that three years of the press falsely claiming the president is a traitor results in a legitimate amount of criticism. I do agree with Chuck on one point. He said, ‘I don’t assume I’m 100 percent right, ever.’ He’s certainly correct about that view. It’s the one Americans should embrace with vigor.”

Dan Bongino, a Fox News contributor, was also not a fan of Todd’s comments.

Liberal privilege on full display.

Imagine the kind of field day the press would have if a late-night talk show host treated Eric, Ivanka, or Don Jr. with kid gloves. They would go absolutely berserk. Then again, when you’re a liberal, there is literally nothing you can’t get away with. Lest we forget when it comes to the son of the current president, Hunter Biden is not only a drug addict but he fathered a child with a stipper and dated his deceased brother’s wife for a year. The guy is the whole package! From New York Post: Hunter Biden continued his lovefest with an adoring, understanding, thoroughly enchanted media last night with a lengthy spot on Jimmy Kimmel. Never have two people found crack addiction so funny, or international influence-peddling so banal, or obvious lies so easy to explain away. CONTINUED: “The laptop,” Kimmel said. Now this is the laptop that contains thousands of emails and texts from Hunter Biden to his father, wife, sister-in-law-turned-mistress, his sister-in-law’s married sister, who also becomes his mistress (try to keep up), drug dealers and prostitutes and colleagues at Burisma, the Ukrainian company that paid him $50,000 a month for God knows what.

Dem-Controlled House Schedules Vote on Reparations for Black Americans — Details

An issue none of us had ANYTHING to do with!

What kind of person with even a shred of pride would accept money for something that in no way affected their life? Conversely, what kind of person would support such nonsense? It is absolutely insane how far the left has taken things. From Fox News: The House took a step forward on a slavery reparations bill Friday by scheduling it for debate and a vote in the Judiciary Committee. The bill would set up a commission to study reparations. If voted out of committee, the matter would come up on the House floor for the first time since 1989. The late Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., introduced slavery reparations legislation in the House each session for nearly 30 years to no avail. CONTINUED: Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said the measure, which is widely opposed by Republicans, is “not intended to divide” but to “bring us closer to racial understanding and advancement.” “Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” Nadler said in a statement.
