2. Chuck Toad

I remember they day the hacks at MSNBC put in the Toadster for the late Ed Schultz (who had great ratings) - and I thought: the fix is in.

Sure enough, that's when MSNBC almost non-stop coverage of Cheeto's rambling speeches started.

37. He may have pissed in his own place too often

From May 2009 to July 2016, he worked for NBC News on Capitol Hill as a Congressional correspondent covering the House of Representatives. He made headlines in 2010 when he received a public apology from Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), who was at the time serving as House Ways and Means Committee Chairman. Congressman Rangel had criticized Russert's aggressive questioning over an ethics report that showed Rangel's fiscal indiscretions and illegal donation solicitations, but then reversed his stance and apologized to Russert instead.[9]

<SNIP>

Russert has claimed that the American media is biased against people of religious faith, going so far as to suggest that it treats them with a certain degree of snark, labeling them as "puritanical" and "not understanding of others or of different viewpoints", which in his view is lazy and contributes to "[feeding] the snickering masses."[13]

<SNIP>

Russert suddenly resigned from NBC in July 2016, saying he needed to evaluate his career opportunities.[1]

Todd is horrible as a so-called journalist. He let Trump just lie blithely on. ie. claiming it was Obama who began the separating, and he, the hero President, protector of children everywhere, that stopped it. How can you not, as a seasoned journalist not just stop and stare at him and then say "you've got to be fucking kidding me?"

13. Let me remind you...

Chuckle Toad never studied journalism. For some unknown reason, some school GAVE him one of those “HONORARY degrees” in journalism just 2 or 3 years ago. ( I know, I should look It up, but I really don’t care, do you?)

He is a hack who has no sense of journalistic objectivity or ethics. How he stumbled into this job I do not understand.

I call him the Father of Both-sideism and I roll over laughing when I hear him speak of that very same.

He is no more deserving of the term journalist than tRump is deserving of the presidency.

Other than that, Jon Cooper is correct.

On the other hand I just discovered AXS, the station Dan Rather is on. CBS pitched him because someone on his staff made a mistake, although the story was true.

Yet NBC let Brian come back after bragging about himself. That was a lie. Definately worse since Democrats are running.

58. IMO, the dearth of relevant and significant stories lies at the feet of

the Dems, who refuse to move forward with an aggressive prosecution of Trumpy's full criminal history. So MSNBC has to go somewhere with their programming time. Now they're picking at pimples, waiting for Pelosi to free her mind of the prospect of being the RW-driven scapegoat if ANYTHING about impeachment goes awry. Pelosi isn't just playing it close to the chest. Her cards are buried in her underwear.

43. Internet destroys 'opposite of a journalist' Chuck Todd over his 'vapid' Trump interview

Published 10 hours ago on June 23, 2019 By Tom Boggioni

While NBC might be happy with the ratings it got from a highly-touted interview with Donald Trump conducted by Meet The Press host Chuck Todd, the reviews of the NBC political director’s performance were bad. Really bad.

Focusing on Todd’s inability, or lack of desire, to push-back on any of the president’s claims — including particularly egregious claims Trump made about detaining immigrant children at the border that the president blamed on Barack Obama, — one Twitter commenter called what Todd does for a living the “opposite” of journalism.

Particularly brutal was an assessment by NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen who tweeted: “Just watched @chucktodd ‘interview’ the president about kids and the border. I don’t what that was. But it was not public discourse. Nothing to do with eliciting information, or accountability, or where do you stand? It was like feeding English sentences into a wood chipper.”
