Chuck Todd Disputes that 96 Percent of Media Donations Went to Clinton

NBC’s Chuck Todd tried to continue peddling the agenda of the “Big Three” networks and cover up the media’s deep connections to the Hillary Clinton campaign, on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Donald Trump’s Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway joined Todd to discuss Trump’s Saturday “reset” speech, but all Todd seemed to want to do was harp on how Trump wanted sue his accusers.

Conway noted to Todd that he was only focusing on a small part and reminded him Trump went after the corrupt system as well, “And it did, unfortunately, include some in the media, not most not all, but it does include some.”

“We’ve seen all these revelations Chuck, 96 percent of the donations, politically, went to Hillary Clinton by working journalists. 96 percent, there's no arguing--” she began to explain before Todd cut her off and tried to discredit the facts:

There was no political journalists in there. It is a-- I get where you're going with that, but that includes people that cover sports or entertainment. I mean, I'm just saying. Let's give it some nuance here.

Conway struck back hard against Todd’s denial, quipping, “Okay, let's give it nuance:”

You have a print reporter from a major outlet saying, “Hey, I'm now just a hack, John Podesta. So here Hillary campaign chairman, do you like what I'm saying in the article? Here's some editorial latitude for you if you want to change anything,”

She also reminded Todd what Trump’s campaign was all about, “This is about people who feel like their pressing their nose against the glass of the rigged system and can't get in.”

That seemed to be all the opposition Todd could muster on the topic of the media’s favoritism to the Clintons and Democrats. Todd himself is on shaky ground when denying such bias, since WikiLeaks recently exposed how he allegedly hosted a private upscale party in 2015 for Clinton campaign staffer Jennifer Palmieri and her husband. Todd, among many other journalist, even attended President Barack Obama’s final state dinner at the White House.

WikiLeaks also released an e-mail that documented how the Clinton campaign had a list of journalists who they viewed as favorable to them. Many of Todd’s colleagues at NBC and MSNBC made Clinton’s list of reliable journalists. And just because some of the reporters on the donation list don’t cover politics doesn’t lessen the fact that it proves liberal bias permeates the industry. Journalists who cover politics can contribute in other ways, such as omitting the fact that liberals were caught on camera admitting to starting fights and riots at Trump rallies.

CHUCK TODD: You know, so yesterday then it made a lot of sense that you guys had a reset speech. Donald Trump going to Gettysburg to try and-- he quoted Lincoln at the top. Talking about healing divisions but before he got to the first 100 day agenda items-- it was as substantive as a speech as he's given in a couple of months, he started out talking about threatening to sue all of the accusers who have come out alleging sexual misconduct. Is that a way to reset the last 16 days of this campaign?

KELLYANNE CONWAY: It's a way to defend himself and remind everybody what he has said many times which is none of this is true. They're fabrications, they’re all lies. He dispensed with that in a sentence or two. But he did talked about the rigged, corrupt system. And it did, unfortunately, include some in the media, not most not all, but it does include some. We’ve seen all these revelations Chuck, 96 percent of the donations, politically, went to Hillary Clinton by working journalists. 96 percent, there's no arguing –

TODD [Interrupting Conway]: There were no actual—There was no political journalists in there. It is a-- I get where you're going with that, but that includes people that cover sports or entertainment. I mean, I'm just saying. Let's give it some nuance here.

CONWAY: Okay, let's give it nuance. Get it down from a couple of points from 96 percent. There is no nuance. There is no nuance in some of these revelations, Chuck. You have a print reporter from a major outlet saying, “Hey, I'm now just a hack, John Podesta. So here Hillary campaign chairman, do you like what I'm saying in the article? Here's some editorial latitude for you if you want to change anything.”

I mean, this just should not be. So when he talks about the rigged, corrupt system, remember, he's standing up for the forgotten man and the forgotten woman. This is not about him. This is about the people. This is about folks who are white knuckled at the end of each month trying to paying the bills. This is about people who feel like their pressing their nose against the glass of the rigged system and can't get in. They're just watching everybody else benefit. He’s speaking for them. He has legitimacy here, Chuck, is because he was once an insider. He said that yesterday--

TODD [Interrupting Conway]: I understand that. But he didn’t speak about that. He instead focused on himself. He instead talked about the allegations and he instead brought it up. I mean, this is campaign –

CONWAY: That was a small piece of a 42-minute speech. A small piece.
