  • Sen. Lankford: 'Many More Shootings Occur With a Pistol Than They Do With a Rifle'

    02/18/2018 3:04:55 PM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | February 18, 2018 | Timothy Meads
    Today on NBC's Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) chatted with host Chuck Todd about the proper solutions to end mass shootings such as the one that occurred last week in Parkland, Florida that left 17 innocent Americans killed. Sen. Lankford argued for more extensive background checks, but maintained that the right to own guns is still a constitutional right that must be respected and recognized. Sen. Lankford also emphasized that the ultimate problem is not the type of gun used, but the intent of the person wielding the gun that makes the difference.  The host asked Sen. Lankford what,...
  • Sen. Lankford Corrects Chuck Todd: Handguns Far More Popular for Crime Than AR-15s

    During a February 18 appearance on NBCs Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) told Chuck Todd that handguns are used for crime far more often than AR-15s. Lankfords statement followed Todds focus on how an 18-year-old can buy an AR-15 in Florida, but must be 21 in order to buy a handgun. During the live broadcast, Lankford responded, An AR-15 is a rifle, a handgun is obviously a handgun[and] there are three, four, five times as many crimes committed with a handgun than there are with a rifle. He added, When you look at the statistics, many, many, many,...
  • Senator Cotton Slams Media for Buying Schumers Ridiculous Border Offer

    01/21/2018 7:13:52 PM PST · by Kaslin · 30 replies ^ | January 21, 2018 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    On day one of the 2018 government shutdown, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) came out and claimed that he offered President Trump funding for his border wall in exchange for protection for so-called Dreamers via the Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and he turned it down. Since then, the liberal media have been running around claiming that Trump was the reason an agreement couldn’t be reached. But during Sunday’s Meet the Press, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) chastised the media for buying the claim “hook, line, and sinker.” The dust-up with NBC host Chuck Todd began after Cotton was explaining that...

    Don "Dr. No! No!" Lemon of CNN shouts down contrary opinions he doesn't want to let his audience hear. Chuck Todd has a bit more subtle yet equally annoying method of accomplishing the stifling of inconvenient facts. He overtalks the interviewee. The more uncomfortable the fact is to liberal orthodoxy, the more desperately Todd performs his overtalk shtick. An example of Todd overtalking in order to suppress facts he doesn't want his audience hear happened on Tuesday's Meet The Press Daily on MSNBC when he was interviewing Republican Congressman Mark Meadows. Because Meadows was presenting solid evidence of bias against...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday chided NBC's Chuck Todd for not asking her about tax reform during his interview of her that focused mostly on sexual misconduct claims made against members of Congress. Todd was set to close the interview, airing on "Meet the Press," without asking about the Republican tax reform plan, when Pelosi cut him off. "You mean we're not even going to talk about taxes?" Pelosi said. "You see, you have fallen into the place, where they [Republicans] are doing something that is going to increase the debt enormously, it's going to be a job...
  • Speier: U.S. House Paid $15 Million to Its Secret Sexual Harassment Victims

    Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBCs Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday that the U.S. House of Representatives has paid $15 million to alleged victims of sexual harassment by its own members in recent years. We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last ten to 15 years, she said. 15 million dollars has been paid out over sexual harassment claims, Todd replied, somewhat shocked. So, obviously more than one member of Congress. Pressed for details, Speier said she did not know how...

    MSNBCs self-crowned political referee, Chuck Todd, appeared to throw in the towel on enforcing D.C.s political rules, or at least the journalistic ones. During the first segment of Mondays MTP Daily, Todd and two of his panelists, Brian Karem and David Folkenflik, whined about how the media was expected to be impartial with President Trump attacking them. But look, two generations of us as reporters. We're trained and conditioned to don't show emotion, we're the umpires and the referees. Todd claimed. When somebody is insisting on making you the story, what do you do? I struggle with it. It...

Such a lovely, peaceful nitwit. The fake reporters, anchors, editors, and management at CNN celebrated the nations birthday by learning that all their fake reporting and retracting stories and firing fake journalists led to a 20% decrease in the fake news networks prime time audience during the...

    In a ridiculous discussion that sounded as though it belonged in a forum of a left-wing website, the panel on Sunday’s Meet the Press bemoaned how the country’s attitude towards women cost Hillary Clinton the White House. Moderator Chuck Todd read from the recent NYT column of Nicholas Kristof, who described Clinton’s idea of Trump voters as “I don’t agree with him, I’m not sure I really approve of him, but he looks like somebody who’s been president before.” Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that “she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it’s been analyzed by many...

    Friday on MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell Reports, NBCs Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd said President Donald Trump must accept the fact that Russia interfered in this election or he will be on the brink of becoming a temporary lame duck presidency. Todd said, You have a presidency right now that I think is, its beyond saying its in crisis mode, its, you know, its on the brink, the question is on the brink of what? Is it on the brink of collapse? Is it on the brink of becoming a temporary lame duck presidency? Maybe it feels lame-duckish temporarily right...

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 havent heard much about it. Wheres the snowblower? Right outside the door, honey.Thats primarily due to the fact that New York City was spared.

    Things arguably got a little embarrassing for NBC moderator Chuck Todd during Sundays 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, Thats not like the tone of a conversation, thats someones physical whereabouts. Cottons schooling of Todd came as the NBC moderator pressed the Senator on when the media could...

And if somebodys life, somebodys marriage, somebodys relationship, somebodys kid gets destroyed or ruined, fine and dandy. They can do all of that they want, but you turn it around and...

The media is not entitled to worship. He continued: It's not entitled to respect as an institution. Its not entitled to deference by political leaders. It is entitled under the First Amendment to say what...

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 Thursdays 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.
