We know how politically biased you are. We know that you are a lifelong democrat. We know that you worked on Tom Harkin’s campaign in 1992. We know that you get all kinds of self-righteous at times. We know that you enjoy slamming Sean Hannity for non-disclosures while you do the same.
After Fox News host Sean Hannity was outed earlier this week as a client of President Donald Trump’s beleaguered attorney Michael Cohen, members of the liberal media expected the top-rated network to punish the host for not previously revealing this connection to his viewers.
“Going to find out what kind of org Fox is today. No serious news org would allow someone this conflicted to cover this story,” one liberal media figure, NBC host Chuck Todd, tweeted Tuesday morning.
When Fox instead issued a statement in defense of Hannity, Todd lashed out, saying on air, “I am stunned that Fox had no punitive response!”
“Not a ‘Sean Hannity must disclose every night,’ not a ‘He can’t cover this story,’ not a ‘He’s been suspended for the week.’ Nothing! Not a single thing!”
But you, Chuck? You need not disclose anything.
In 2016 the NBC host interviewed then-Democrat presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine three separate times without once informing his audience that his wife, Kristian Denny Todd, had donated to Kaine’s successful 2012 Senate campaign, as noted by NewsBusters.
Todd likewise said nothing during his interviews in 2016 with then-Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, despite his wife’s campaign advisory firm, Maverick Mail & Strategies, having performed work for the candidate earlier that year.
And your wife did some serious income collecting while working for Sanders:
NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife who’s active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23).
But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year. Open Secrets shows a bill for $1.992 million made in ten payments to Maverick from January to April. Todd has never disclosed this business relationship in 11 Sanders interviews this year. (If the work began in 2015 before the payments, Todd failed to disclose any tie in six Sanders interviews in the second half of 2015). We didn’t even count any Todd interviews with Sanders on MSNBC.
No one ever accuses you or your wife of working on behalf of any Republican. Your bias is palpable each every time you open your mouth.
But that’s not the only thing that makes you an a**hole. After two plus years of of pumping the collusion/conspiracy charge against Trump you assailed the Attorney General of the United States when he made an accurate assertion:
“The country’s chief law enforcement officer went in front of Congress today and gave credence to a factless conspiracy theory.
Every time they’ve brought up this allegation, there has been zero factual basis for it. Every effort to perpetrate the spying conspiracy theory has been debunked.
Using the word ‘spying’ plays into the President’s language and argument that the Russia investigation to him is just a witch hunt. It feels like that basically the Attorney General gaslit the country.”
There is no question that the obama administration spied on Trump and on false pretenses. But wait, there’s more. You really lost it when you all but begged democrats to impeach Trump:
“Look, they have a real dilemma on their hands. And I actually think there is no right answer,” he lamented to host Willie Geist. “[T]here is no right moral or ethical decision, which is there are unintended consequences if they choose to go down this road and there’s unintended consequences if they choose not to do this. Right?”
According to Todd, the Democrats risked normalizing foreign meddling in our elections if they didn’t run down Trump:
Are you, sort of, okaying the idea of foreign adversaries, helping out political campaigns if there isn’t an attempt to put this behavior on the docket of Congress. At the same time, you may politically be handing the President a cudgel with which he could get re-elected and maybe that’s outside the goals of the Democrats here.
What makes you a real a**hole is ignoring the fact that the Russian interference came about on Barack Obama’s watch. You ignore that Obama knew about Russia’s intent to meddle in US elections since 2014- long before Trump was the nominee- and did NOTHING about it. Obama was the President, Chuck, not Trump. It was his bloody job to protect America and its elections. NOT ONCE have you addressed that.
You blow that off totally. Now you want democrats to punish Trump for the failures of your hero Obama. You’re a lousy journalist.
That’s what makes you a complete a**hole.
I am giving you a special award. Wear it proudly.
