Taking to Twitter Tuesday morning, NBC’s Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd lost it over anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok being fired and President Trump praising the dismissal. Ranting that the president’s criticism of Strzok was “extraordinary and un-democratic,” Todd feared that other “civil servants” would be intimidated by the supposed effort to “character assassinate.”
On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters.
On Wednesday, the network morning shows all claimed the outcome of Ohio’s 12th Congressional District special election was “too close to call” despite Republican candidate Troy Balderson seeming to have won a narrow victory over Democrat Danny O’Connor. Despite that apparent result, reporters desperately spun the likely Democratic defeat as a “moral victory” and predicted electoral doom for the GOP in November’s midterm elections.
Fresh from spreading #FakeNews about who President Trump targeted with insults about intelligence on Sunday, moderator Chuck Todd kick off his Meet the Press interview with Missouri Senator Roy Blunt (R) by badgering him about the President’s attacks on the press and refusing to acknowledge that the media does, in fact, put out fake news.
It’s well known that President Trump has no problem with lobbing insults that opponents and those who attack him. It’s something the liberal media whines about almost every day. But on NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd misled viewers by appearing to insinuate that the President reserved insults of intelligence to African-Americans. Thus calling him a racist yet again.
On Thursday, at the direction of President Trump, America’s national security and intelligence chiefs lined up and spoke from the White House briefing room to reassure the country that they were doing everything in their power to combat Russian meddling in our elections. It was something the liberal media had been crying about for a long time, but the liberal media can never be pleased as CNN and MSNBC hosts decried the timing, moving the goal post.
NBC's Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd has an ongoing conflict of interest in political coverage with his wife, Kristian Denny Todd, whose Maverick Mail & Strategies firm does direct-marketing campaigns for Democrats. A search of the campaign-finance database Open Secrets shows Mrs. Todd has donated $13,250 to federal candidates so far in this election cycle, all of them Democrats.
According to Chuck Todd, booing and nasty language towards reporters could well lead to the killing of journalists. Specifically, he compared a Trump rally this week to the horrific car killing (and injuring of multiple others) by a racist white nationalist in Charlottesville. Todd began by lecturing his MTP Daily viewers on Wednesday: “Tonight, I'm obsessed with how we're no longer obsessed over the things President Trump says.”
It was only a matter of time before the liberal media’s derangement got so out of control that they would start accusing the entire conservative movement of working for Russian interests, and it finally happened. During Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC moderator Chuck Todd used the recent indictment of Russian national, Marina Butina to suggest that not only was the National Rifle Association infiltrated by Russians but “all levels of the conservative movement” were as well.
Seconds after President Trump concluded a White House address on Friday rightfully touting strong economic growth, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd joined NBC live special coverage to immediately throw cold water on the news and accuse the president of having “over-hyped” the 4.1% increase in the gross domestic product.
MSNBC’s Chuck Todd decided to thrill viewers on Thursday’s MTP Daily with a highly analytical deep dive into President Trump’s tweets, focusing specifically on whether they might somehow constitute obstruction of justice. Sometimes, a single leak or piece of information can drive an entire news cycle. Such was the case on Thursday when The New York Times reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was examining the President’s tweets in his “wide-ranging obstruction inquiry.”
An overseas trip has done nothing to quell the liberal media’s war of words with President Donald Trump, but when Barack Obama went on his first Euro-trip as president, he and First Lady Michelle Obama were lavished with bouquets from the press. The following are just a few examples of over-the-top gushing the Obamas received from the liberal media from their 2009 European trip, as culled from the MRC archives.
