    “I think it’s clear mainstream media needs to do a better job of reporting on rural America.” – Chuck Todd, NBC News Despite the fact that Stella was a blockbuster - dropping up to 4 feet of snow along with wind gusts over hurricane force throughout  many rural areas in the East -  you haven’t heard much about it. “Where’s the snowblower?” “Right outside the door, honey.”That’s primarily due to the fact that New York City was spared. And despite what Chuck Todd said everybody knows that NYC is the epicenter of the country and nothing outside it’s borders...

    Things arguably got a little embarrassing for NBC moderator Chuck Todd during Sunday’s Meet the Press, after Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton had to explain to him that the claims of anonymous sources should be taken with a grain of salt. “Anonymous sources said Steve Bannon drove from the White House to the Department of Homeland Security to confront John Kelly, which we now know is not the truth,” Cotton reminded Todd, “That’s not like the tone of a conversation, that’s someone’s physical whereabouts.” Cotton’s schooling of Todd came as the NBC moderator pressed the Senator on when the media could...

    RUSH: I want to thank F. Chuck Todd of NBC for opening my eyes to this. For the longest time I’ve been genuinely curious why it is that media people think that they cannot be criticized. And they really do. They really think they can go out and research people and they can dig up dirt from anybody they want, their pasts, and they can broadcast it all over. And if somebody’s life, somebody’s marriage, somebody’s relationship, somebody’s kid gets destroyed or ruined, fine and dandy. They can do all of that they want, but you turn it around and...

    Appearing on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Friday, former United Nations ambassador John Bolton blasted NBC’s Chuck Todd for taking to Twitter on Thursday to attack President Trump’s “un-American” criticism of the media during a press conference: “I thought that tweet was one of the most foolish things I've seen from the media in a long time, and you know, that's a pretty low bar there. The media is not entitled to worship.” He continued: “It's not entitled to respect as an institution. It’s not entitled to deference by political leaders.

    NBC News anchor Chuck Todd said "press bashing" is not a fit activity for a president, just moments after President Trump laid into several reporters at the White House in his first solo press conference as president. Trump assailed the "dishonest" media for doing "a tremendous disservice to the American people." After, Todd warned that "this is not a laughing matter." He added, "I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is un-American."

    With One Tweet, Chuck Todd Reveals The Truth About the Mainstream Media It’s always the people inside a bubble who think they’re the ones with an outsider’s perspective on things. The mainstream media fits this profile perfectly. The big name press continue to deny there is anything wrong with the way they do things, or the things they choose to do. NBC’s Chuck Todd, for example, is happy to blame Donald Trump for his profession’s problems and abdicate any responsibility. They all are.Todd sent out this tweet when President Trump was going after the media during his press conference...

    Chuck Todd and the other journalists at NBC are openly fuming that Donald Trump continues to call out the biased coverage of his administration. During Thursday’s press conference, an angry Todd tweeted, “This not a laughing matter. I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is un-American.” He later whined, “Press bashing may feel good to folks but when it's done by people in power, it's corrosive. Take off your partisan hats for a second.” During live coverage, Lester Holt chided, “It was contentious. It was ugly at moments and we haven't seen anything like it.”

    NBC’s Chuck Todd confessed that he and others in the mainstream news media played down just how despised Hillary Clinton was in the heartland due to the fear of appearing “sexist.” What’s more, he admitted, the mainstream media failed to “tell the stories of all Americans.” “Where I think political correctness got in the way of what we all knew as reporters and didn’t fully deliver was how hated the Clintons were in the heartland,” the “Meet the Press” host admitted Thursday to former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in a interview for the “1947” podcast.

    Which explains his meltdown on Sunday Yeah, “alternate facts” made me cringe too. But maybe not for the same reason it made you cringe. I understand what Kellyanne Conway was trying to say in her exchange with Chuck Todd, and on substance she absolutely had the better of the argument. That’s why it’s so frustrating to see what happens when the Trump team gets into these shouting matches with blowhards like Todd. You use one ill-advised term - and yes, “alternate facts” was very ill-advised - and it takes all the focus off the fact that Todd’s position was indefensible.

So, when Chuck Schumer admits that “in all probability” Mike Pompeo will become the next CIA director, he’s really soft-selling the situation. Still, Chuck is Chuck.

He will never say a negative word about you in person. To your face. he will always compliment—always find a way to compliment. It’s every salesman trick in the book,...

And one of the consequences is that the purveyors of such fake news will be humiliated on national television as happened on both Saturday and Sunday over whether Russia hacked the Republican National Committee as was claimed in a Friday New York Times fake news story.RNC Chairman and incoming White House Chief of Staff for President-elect Donald Trump, Reince Priebus, went way beyond merely schooling Chuck Todd on Sunday's Meet The Press. He flat out nailed him to...

    MSNBC's Chuck Todd grilled Hillary Clinton over the scathing inspector general's report released on Wednesday that determined she "did not comply" with State Department rules in using a personal email address to conduct government business. The report "seemed to contradict many of the things you've said about the emails," Todd said, before asking Clinton if she accepts everything the report said as fact. Clinton argued that the report made clear that personal email use was allowed under State Department rules, though she acknowledged she realized people have "concerns." Snip... The existence of at least three previously undisclosed email correspondences between...

    Hillary Clinton says she welcomes businessman and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's interest in potentially becoming her vice presidential running mate. In an interview that aired Sunday, Clinton opened the door wide open to Cuban and other business leaders, who could serve to counter the likely Republican nominee, real estate mogul Donald Trump. "I think we should look widely and broadly. It's not just people in elected office. It is successful businesspeople," Clinton told NBC News's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press." "I am very interested in that." "And I appreciate his openness to it," she added of Cuban's comments....

    It’s been nearly four years since a September 11, 2012, raid on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, left four U.S. citizens dead, including an ambassador, and more than two years since the House of Representatives formed a special committee to investigate the attack. The House’s report on the events is coming soon – very soon. It just might not be the whole report. In an interview with Chuck Todd on “MTP Daily” Friday, committee chair Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican from South Carolina, said he plans to release the much sought-after draft in June. “We’re going to get...

    Ah, I remember that speech well. It was high-five material on conservative blogs for days, back when Cruz was still a populist hero to Trump fans rather than “Lyin’ Ted.” He delivered it last July, a month after Trump declared his candidacy, with the Trump/Cruz bromance still in full flower. Cruz was eager to impress Trump’s supporters in the belief that they’d soon stampede towards him as Trump inevitably collapsed in the polls. Fast-forward eight months and here we are: Sixty-three percent of Trump’s supporters say that if he earns more delegates than the other candidates but does not become...

    Ted Cruz stands by his claim that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a liar arguing, “Every word I said there was true and accurate.” In a town hall on MSNBC hosted by the moderator of “Meet the Press” Chuck Todd on Thursday, Todd asked Cruz, “You called Senate Majority Leader a liar on the Senate floor. That has not sat well with your colleagues. Do you regret calling him a ‘liar’ on the Senate floor?” “You know, Washington is an amazing place,” Cruz said. “When somebody stands up and lies to you, and someone else points out that they...
  • Hillary Surrogate: Bernie Sanders a 'Wholly-Owned Subsidiary of the NRA'

    If Bernie Sanders is a subsidiary of the NRA, they really should spin him off. . . On today's MTP Daily, Hillary surrogate Hakeem Jeffries, a NYC congressman and Hillary surrogate, claimed that "Senator Bernie Sanders has effectively functioned as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Rifle association for the entirety of his career." Really? Let's go to the scorecard. Sanders current NRA rating is a subterranean D-. Since 1992, he has racked up four Fs. His highest score was a C-. Kudos to Chuck Todd for reacting with incredulity: "can you really refer to him as a wholly-owned subsidiary...

    NBC anchor Chuck Todd isn’t buying the National Enquirer hit piece on Ted Cruz. On the March 27 edition of Meet the Press, Todd commented that “there’s more evidence that ties Trump to planting the story, than there is to the story itself tying anything to Cruz.” Todd also accused Trump of taking a page out of the “LBJ playbook.” Discussing the story with NBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell, Todd retorted that “Trump is almost trying to borrow a page from the LBJ playbook, when he put out a statement on the National Enquirer – let me put...

    Donald Trump will no longer be allowed to call into NBC's signature Sunday news show "Meet The Press," according to a Sunday report in The New York Times. "Meet The Press" moderator Chuck Todd told the Times on Friday that the frontrunner will have to appear in-person. From the Times: On Friday, Chuck Todd, the moderator of “Meet the Press,” told me he had only grudgingly allowed Mr. Trump to call in to his show earlier in the campaign, determining that he would rather have Mr. Trump take questions via phone than not at all. Now, Mr. Todd said, he...
