Chuck Todd can´t imagine what could ever have given conservative politicians the idea that the MSM is unfriendly to them. C´mon Chuck: we know you´re a NewsBusters reader. Every day here, we document the liberal media´s hostility to conservatives. On today´s Morning Joe, NBC political director Todd repeatedly spoke of a supposed "mythology" among conservative politicians and their staffs that the "big, bad non-conservative media" is "out to get conservatives." That in turn explains why, according to Todd, conservative officials are reluctant to appear on non-Fox shows.
Comments: Yes, he said this the same day NBC announced the Axelrod hire.
There have been books written that document that he is wrong. There have been college papers done by liberal professors documenting that he is wrong. There have been liberals in the MSM stating that he is wrong.
But no amount of proof is ever sufficient to the liberals in the MSM that continue to deny the obvious.
I have a theory that there is a large portion of the population in the world that wants to be serfs. They typically don´t realize that is what they want. But it´s in their genes. That is why there has been so much serfdom over the ages. America was settled by a very unusual group of people. They did not have it in their genes to be serfs. So they established a country that rejected kings and the all powerful state. But over the last two centuries many serf-ers have immigrated here and now they are more in control and are comfortable with all of us being serfs.
It´s a mythology I tell ya, just mythology. Now here´s the 214th airing of Rubio taking a drink of water. Oh and hey Joe, what do you think of those cheetoh eaters (yes that´s what he called them) who think there´s anything else we need to know about those guys who were killed in Benghazi? Talk about delusional. By the way meet our new analyst David Axelrod. Do you think Romney´s still keeping women in a binder? Do you think we aired that enough? Menendez? Huh? I´m sorry, for a moment I thought you asked me to weigh in on Menendez yuk yuk. As if.
Todd may actually believe this. The left feels so strongly that their position is the righteous and proper one that they believe it´s the default position for all thought. They see liberalism/Marxism as the one and only true religion and can´t see how enamored and biased of they have become.
When someone calls them on their bias they are simply unable to see it.
You gotta´ quit smoking that stuff Chuck. When you finally sober up, you will come to the reality that so many have known for decades. The MSM is pogressive/socilaist and hates conservatives of any stripe. Simply repeating a lie does not make it true.
Chuck is not delusional, nor is he just mistaken. He absolutely knows that the Left controls the media and uses it to bash conservatives. He should be called out as a Liar. He is following the Lefty playbook....Deny, Deny, Deny, Deny I did not have sex with that woman I did not cheat on my taxes i did not report income because my accountant made a mistake, or the dog ate my homework
Mark Finkelstein--why waste breath convincing Todd of what he already knows to be the truth? Just call him the Lying Leftist that he is.

Raising concerns about consumer privacy, California´s health exchange has given insurance agents the names and contact information for tens of thousands of people who went online to check out coverage but didn´t ask to be contacted. The Covered California exchange said it started handing out this consumer information this week as part of a pilot program to help people enroll ahead of a Dec. 23 deadline to have health insurance in place by Jan. 1.State officials said they are only trying to help potential customers find insurance and sign up in time. But some insurance brokers and consumers who were
ST. PAUL, Minn. Jeff Ansorge once commanded a staff of 17 and made around $80,000 a year as executive chef at a posh downtown Minneapolis restaurant where a 24-ounce dry aged Porterhouse steak goes for $48. But he gave it all up to become the head cook of a Salvation Army soup kitchen, where the meals are free. Now he brings his culinary skills to bear making salmon, ribs and stews for the poor and homeless who come to The Salvation Army Eastside Corps Community Center in St. Paul. For the Thanksgiving meal that’s being served Wednesday, Ansorge planned a traditional
The National Park Service is not interested in coming up with plans to let states pay to keep parks open should another government shutdown occur, a service official testified late last week to a House subcommittee.Park Service Comptroller Bruce Sheaffer said a bill to require such planning for all 401 national parks could take too much time and money — a position that was blasted as “atrocious” by the subcommittee chairman. The Provide Access and Retain Continuity Act was one of two bills in response to the October shutdown of the federal government, when the closure of parks like the
They work until 11 at night, lug 40-pound garment bags throughout the city and get scolded for not adhering tape to mood boards correctly. And yet being a Condé Nast intern remains one of the most coveted, sought-after unpaid jobs in town.To an aspiring media-ite, a Condé internship is a stiletto stacked in prestige wrapped in promises of opportunity. It is a fancy incubator for future media power players: Fashion designer Whitney Port, author Lauren Conrad and beauty blogger Emily Weiss all got their start interning at the media mammoth. So you can imagine the surprise when, last month, Condé
The Obama administration plans to delay by a full month the open enrollment period for Obamacare´s second year, in a move that a Republican campaign strategist called ´nakedly political.´ According to Healthcare.gov, the Department of Health and Human Service´s official online portal for the Affordable Care Act, enrollment for 2015 is scheduled to begin on October 15, 2014 and end on December 7. But an HHS official said Thursday that the schedule has been bumped back, beginning on November 15, 2014 and ending on January 15, 2015. That timetable will ensure that the midterm elections come and go before the new
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina said Tuesday that it will raise rates as much as 24 percent on 2013 individual health insurance plans that are being extended next year. The increase is double the price inflation for the same health plans just a year ago, but many Blue Cross customers who have grumbled about rising costs in past years are cheering the news this time. The health plans in question were slated for elimination under the Affordable Care Act, the nation’s health care law, but Blue Cross said last week it would offer the plans next year. President
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
