Meet the Press
In the midst of interviewing government officials responsible for coordinating the federal response to Hurricane Florence, all three broadcast Sunday shows harangued those relief workers with questions about President Trump’s recent comments about Hurricane Maria.
On Monday Meet The Press host Chuck Todd challenged the media in a piece for The Atlantic to embrace what most of them are already embracing and in effect become part of the "resistance" by urging them to "stop complaining---and start fighting back." Only a day later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson challenged Todd to take a break from "fighting back" and explain what he knew about the NBC coverup of the Harvey Weinstein story.
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, moderator Chuck Todd offered a brief report on the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing President Trump’s approval rating remaining virtually unchanged despite a week of news focused on the conviction of Paul Manafort and guilty pleas from Michael Cohen. However, Todd revealed that the network was so skeptical of the results that it actually conducted a second survey to verify the numbers.
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 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.
During Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd interviewed Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois. A majority of the conversation focused on the Supreme Court vacancy and how Democrats would attempt to prevent President Trump from putting his desired candidate on the bench. For the past two years, the Democrats have done their best to make sure that Republicans do not forget that they failed to hold hearings for Merrick Garland, the judge President Obama nominated in March 2016 to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, less than a year before the end of his Presidency.
On Fox News Sunday, substitute host Dana Perino did something that the more liberal journalists never do as she confronted NARAL president Ilyse Hogue with poll numbers suggesting that most Americans support significant restrictions on abortion in spite of surveys that find most voice support for Roe v. Wade.
President Trump will be meeting with U.S.’s NATO allies in just a few days and afterward, he is scheduled to fly to Helsinki, Finland for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Of course, the upcoming meeting had the liberal media in a tizzy as many most likely felt the President was meeting with his handler. On NBC’s Meet the Press, the mostly liberal panel was in an utter panic about what damage Trump would do to the U.S. while in a one-on-one meeting with one of America’s greatest foes.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rocked the Democratic Party last Tuesday after she toppled New York Congressman Joe Crowley. The millennial identifies as a Democratic Socialist and, as would be expected, she became an overnight media darling. Since socialism has led to the poverty and suffering of millions of people around the world, there’s no wonder many people fear its horrific effects. But on Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, moderator Chuck Todd let the potential congresswoman define the ideology on her terms.
On Sunday, Washington Post “conservative” George Will won the admiration of his liberal peers when he penned a column calling for the Republican Party to lose control Congress. His anti-Republican screed was featured on CNN’s Inside Politics and ABC’s This Week. But on NBC’s Meet the Press, moderator Chuck Todd put it up for a panel discussion during the show’s “End Game” segment.
During Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd interviewed Rep. Mark Sanford (R), who recently lost renomination for his House seat in South Carolina after President Trump criticized him while endorsing his primary opponent on Twitter. Hoping for an intra-party fight to break out, Todd read aloud a quote from Senator Bob Corker, also a Trump critic, comparing the GOP to a cult. Todd then asked Sanford “would you use that word?” Later in the interview, Todd asked Sanford if he had any plans to run against President Trump in 2020.
President Obama constantly told falsehoods to the American people about how his policies worked, how they would be implemented, and what the benefits were. His most famous one, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it” got him the Lie of the Year. But when President Trump does his own spinning, it all of a sudden becomes a moral conundrum for the liberal media. The stacked anti-Trump panel on NBC’s Meet the Press proved this point on Sunday when they debated when to call him a liar.
