Chuck Todd’s assertion that correcting Republican lies isn’t his job is factually incorrect and counter to the purpose of journalism. Hold Chuck Todd accountable by issuing a public apology for his outrageous statement and ensure that all NBC News/MSNBC journalists know that correcting political misinformation and lies is part of their job description.
Well, it’s just like how they operate in our electoral system. They
give a lot of money. They don’t have to specify their demands. The
politicians know what their agenda is, and they serve that agenda of the
Koch brothers. And the same thing goes with public television,
apparently. They made their contributions, and the programmers pay
attention, and they make their programming decisions based on that. It’s
really sad, but I think Carl is right, we just need to advocate for
more public moneys for public television.
