Journalists keep demonstrating that they believe they are above criticism. Any effort to criticize their reporting or do any investigative digging into their lives is somehow equated to dictatorial regimes. This seems odd. If you are not allowed the freedom to criticize the press, who is encouraging an authoritarian regime? On Tuesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd uncorked an angry "I Am Obsessed" commentary about an Axios report that Trump backers are organizing a campaign to criticize national journalists.
Over the past several days, the networks have delivered the latest example of the dominant liberal media suddenly taking notice of a normal government activity done by the Donald Trump administration and treating it as outrageous even though there was no media scrutiny when the same activity was also done by the Barack Obama administration.
Hours after President Trump blasted NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander for being “the most biased reporter” in the press corps, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd predictably rushed to his colleague’s defense during MSNBC’s MTP Daily Wednesday afternoon: “There is nothing better for a journalist than to get attacked by Donald Trump.”
On MTP Daily Wednesday evening, Trump-deranged host Chuck Todd commiserated with fellow liberal MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell over Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress. Mitchell sadly conceded that this whole Russia investigation was probably finally over, but she couldn’t help but take swings at “shameful” Republicans while expressing her disappointment.
In the wake of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex’s disgusting use of concentration camps imagery to attack ICE and Border Patrol, members of the liberal media, most notably CNN’s Brian Stelter, Andrew Kaczynski, Chris Cuomo, and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, rushed to defend her and spin the comments. But during Wednesday’s MTP Daily, NBC political director Chuck Todd put his foot down and stood above his colleagues as he called out Ocasio-Cortez and gave her a lesson on the Holocaust.
On Tuesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd again put on display the fact that journalists are so far to the left on abortion that they actually sometimes press Democrats to go even further left instead of making an effort to look balanced. As Emily's List president Stephanie Schriock appeared as a guest, Todd repeatedly suggested that Democrats should be more strident about pushing abortion rights, even hinting Democrats should cut funding for rare pro-life Democratic candidates.
On Wednesday's MTP Daily, host Chuck Todd cited two polls suggesting the public was mostly supportive of abortion. By contrast, a couple of days earlier when Steve Kornacki was fill in host for the same show, he was more accurate in admitting that polling can also be found that suggests most Americans oppose abortion.
With his arms flying around the screen, self-proclaimed politics referee Chuck Todd seemed more like an armchair quarterback shouting plays at the TV during Tuesday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC. Todd was literally up in arms over the apparent utter lack of strategy and prioritization from Congressional Democrats looking to get rid of Trump.
The bar for “collusion” just keeps getting lower. According to MSNBC political director Chuck Todd, an Attorney General briefing his own President about a soon-to-be-released report now meets the standard.
MSNBC host and self-appointed referee of American politics, Chuck Todd was visibly irritated Wednesday evening after Attorney General William Barr admitted before Congress that the Trump campaign was spied on in 2016, and he planned to investigate it. Suggesting Barr was “perpetuating” a “fact-less conspiracy theory”, Todd denied known facts of the case and spun a series of falsehoods while declaring Barr had “gaslit the country”.
The liberal media had their hopes raised of seeing President Trump jailed raised by the recent dubious reports by The New York Times and The Washington Post claiming that members of the Special Counsel felt Attorney General Barr mischaracterized their findings. Few in the liberal media would dare to admit the questionable nature of the sourcing of their reporting, but that’s what MSNBC host Chuck Todd did during Thursday’s MTP Daily.
On Tuesday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur fretted over the refusal of many Senate Democrats to vote in favor of the Green New Deal program when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought it up for a vote. Tur wanted to blind her guests with "science." The "science" demands radical change.
