A Look at Chuck Todd and
Conspiratorial Media Incest

RedState.com, by Erick Erickson

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 10/10/2012 7:45:43 AM

I got a great laugh out of this Chuck Todd near meltdown on Meet the Depressed the other day. His voice quivered in moral outrage over Jack Welch suggesting something was up with the unemployment numbers last Friday. Chuck Todd proclaimed, “What we’re doing, we’re corroding trust in our government in a way, and one time responsible people are doing to control it. And the idea that Donald Trump and Jack Welch, rich people with crazy conspiracy, can get traction on this, is a bad trend.”

And don't forget: Rasmussen polling is "slop".
What an idiot. He's not even aware of how ignorant he is.

Unless the slop is favorable to them. They prove every step of the way they are petulant children that whine and blame when they can't get their way.

It's easy to forget the level of media/democrat party incest that exists. It's overwhelming.

Erick, you forgot David Gregory being married to the chief lawyer for Fannie Mae. But I guess he can't list them all, there's not enough bandwidth.

Beyond agenda, how did Chuck Todd ever get to where he is? He has no tools that could be described as good tv. He and Politico's Jonathan Martin look like a couple guys who would never get off second shift at the mill.

But "beyond agenda" doesn't apply.

Excellent article! Thanks for posting, OP. Chuck Toad is one of the more despicable people on messnbc, but not the only one. Seems they are having a contest over there to prove which one of them is more ignorant than the last. Thank Heaven, the American people are waking up to the fact that these anti-American-obama-sycophantic-creeps cannot be trusted, no matter WHAT they are scribbling OR bleating about!

I'll say again, we're supposed to believe Obie's administration wouldn't ever ever try to manipulate a process for his electoral benefit....the same regime trying to manipulate the laws and buy off defense contractors (with our money) commanding them to ignore provisions of the WARN act re; notify workers about impending layoffs which would negatively affect the election coming the week before votes are cast.

If he'd break the law he'd bend UE numbers. Anything for political gain. It's the Chicago way.

They think we're stooopid

So...the danger lies not in cooking the books but in pointing it out.

This from the same folks who brought you:"It's not about the evidence...it's about the seriousness of the charge."

Libs don't worry too much about the positions they take because they don't plan to be there for long.

Thanks to Lucianne for making this one a Must Read! A great exposure of the Old Media decievers and their spouses, I found only one thing missing. In listing the names of former 'reachers across the aisle,' Erik forgot to name Arlen Specter, the master RINO of all times.

FTA: '' The media establishment relates to people who live within 25 miles of the Atlantic or Pacific and relates poorly to people who live within 50 miles of American river valleys other than the Hudson.''

Also known as Flyover Country, or No-Wheresville. I would love to see this article in some major papers, but since the lib media HATE truth, it'll never happen.

It really isn't about Obama with these guys, it's about them.
They will lose their first tier status, and their pats on the head from the White House when Obama goes. EVentually they'll rally, but it won't be right away and it won't be easy. Poor bunnies!

I meant to add to my above post...Mr. Erickson uses the term ''Media Incest'' in the headline. If you read the entire article you'll have to agree it is the PERFECT term and applies 100%. Would love to hear from the media ''deniers.''

Chuck Todd is slowly becoming irrelevent. He's the always present informant of msnbc, always front and center @ press briefings,there to bring "bresking news", with his producer-written prose and becoming almost as gag-producing as Chris Matthews.

When David Gregory needs him to "guest" on Sunday Morning, well,seems to me NBC has already begun to cut its budget.

Kudos to Erickson for naming names here.

But he gives us names of only a couple dozen --out of what he estimates is a cadre of about 500-- of so-called journalist who dominate the MSM in the NY-DC corridor.

These so-called journalists are the manufacturers of the daily CW (conventional wisdom).
As such they have the power to declare anything Romney says, or does, as a "gaffe."

Every one of these 500 former DNC staffers and other partisans should be required to issue a "full disclosure" statement to every "news" piece they write and broadcast.

#11 - Todd got his TV face job when Russert died. He had been a backstage guy, and it shows.

And maybe Rush uses the term F. Chuck Todd to relegate him to the same status as he holds F. Lee Bailey in - or Flea Bailey, rather.

Yes I think with F Chuck Todd, Rush was riffing off of F Lee Bailey's name with this nicname. I think the intent was to deflate the haughty partisan twit who takes himself so seriously. But every time I see F Chuck on TV, I think of that nicname more as an imperative sentence than a name.

Rush proves this incest every time on his show when he plays various reporters covering a story but all using the same phrase or word. An example of this is when GWB chose Dick Cheney as running mate.....suddenly every news story used the obscure word, "Gravitas." Coincidence? I think not.

I didn't see mention (perhaps I missed it) that Jay Carney, formerly of TIME, is married to Claire Shipman, ABC News.

And Martha Raddatz, who's moderating one of the debates, is married to Julius Genachowski, whom Obama appointed to the FCC. Obama also attended their wedding in 1991, so the friendship goes back a very long time. Why didn't Martha recuse herself?

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration
minimizes latest North Korean nuke threat
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor and Shaun Waterman    Original Article

The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney

The Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta    Original Article

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
