He’s Just LYING Now: Chuck Todd Denies ‘Editorial Point of View’ on MSNBC Daytime
“Sometimes you have to question the point of a lie that is so obviously, totally, demonstrably false. Chuck Todd uttered such an example on Wednesday, ridiculously insisting that MSNBC, a network that has opposed everything Donald Trump has done since becoming president, has no “editorial point of view” during the daytime.” Newsbusters
Todd’s comments came after Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh called out the bias and spin coming from MSNBC. After the interview, Todd huffed, “Reminder for what it’s worth, no editorial point of view here on any of these newscasts on MSNBC in the daytime.”
That’s obviously untrue and is proven false on a daily basis on MSNBC. Let’s take a look at just two examples on Wednesday (the same day Todd made his assertion). Willie Geist, a MSNBC host and the anchor of Sunday’s Today — in other words, a so-called serious journalist — actually insisted that Joe Biden is some sort of moderate:
They’re trying to put Joe Biden in the same category with members of Congress who are Progressive boogie men and women that they’ve been using now for a couple years. The label doesn’t fit. Donald Trump knows that, on Joe Biden that he’s a wild leftist, that he’s a tool of the radical left. So instead, you get what we saw yesterday, which is this kind of hodgepodge, this mash-up of incoherent attacks on Joe Biden and not really a frame that he can use going into November.
