NBC’s Chuck Todd is little more than a partisan hack, but he finally came out of the closet and admitted to what we’ve all known for some time – the media was heavily biased against President Trump.
In concert, the mainstream media did everything possible to get Hillary Clinton into office, and their efforts were an abysmal failure because America didn’t like Hillary. Finally, after three long months of leftist denial, Chuck Todd admitted as much during an interview in which he appeared to be trying to save face after being embarrassed during the campaign.
From the Washington Times:
NBC’s Chuck Todd confessed that he and others in the mainstream news media played down just how despised Hillary Clinton was in the heartland due to the fear of appearing “sexist.”
What’s more, he admitted, the mainstream media failed to “tell the stories of all Americans.”
“Where I think political correctness got in the way of what we all knew as reporters and didn’t fully deliver was how hated the Clintons were in the heartland,” the “Meet the Press” host admitted Thursday to former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer in a interview for the “1947” podcast.
“And I think it was a fear of, ‘Oh, is it going to look like it’s sexist, anti-woman if we say that?’” he added, pointing out that on the hustings he saw numerous “Hillary for Prison” signs adorning the front yards of rural America.
“I think we underplayed it a little bit out of political correctness fears,” Mr. Todd said. “No member of the press corps wants to look like they’re singling out a group and making a group feel bad, right, whatever that [group] is.
“If we sort of were straight-up honest and blunt about hey do we understand the level of hatred that’s out there and you know, all the Hillary for Prison signs that are out there, we certainly would have at least made the viewer know, hey, you know, she’s not well-liked in some places in this country in ways that’s times 10 when it comes to Trump,” he said.
Interesting, to say the least. But it’s too little, too late as far as most Americans are concerned since they’re pretty much fed up with the blatant bias from the liberal media.
