Charles David Todd, the 12th and current moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press, was born on April 8, 1972, in New York City. He is the Political Director for NBC News and also hosts MTP Daily on MSNBC. Todd was the Chief White House Correspondent for NBC and the host of MSNBC’s The Daily Rundown before taking over as the host of Meet the Press. He also works as an on-air political analyst for NBC News’ Today and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
Many critics are expressing their displeasure with Chuck Todd’s laissez-faire approach to allowing the dissemination of misinformation, which he sees as good old-fashioned bipartisanship by putting election skeptics on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“Chuck Todd Is a Dangerous F—ing Idiot,” Says the Narrator. According to A Tweeter
Todd Defended Interviewing Lawmakers on The Other Side of The Aisle on Thursday’s Episode of Mediaite’s Podcast “the Interview,” Including Republicans Who Backed Outgoing President Donald Trump’s Efforts to Overturn the 2020 Election Results.
“you Never Know when Someone You Think Deserves to Be Banned Is Suddenly Someone You Have to Deal With,” Nyu Journalism Professor Jay Rosen Tweeted on Saturday, Quoting Todd from His Interview. Because They Are Powerful, Even if You Don’t Like Them.”
Todd’s Revealing Response to Mediaite’s Aidan Mc Laughlin’s Question About Whether Such Politicians Should Be Barred from “meet the Press” and Other Sunday Shows Trended on Twitter, and He Received a Lot of Backlashes.
Todd Added in The Interview, “i Think You Have to Be Mindful About Absolutes.” “i Feel as If I’ve Made a Deal with My Viewers, and They Expect Me to Supply the Information They Require… You Never Know when Someone You Believe Should Be Banned Becomes Someone with Whom You Must Interact. Because They Are Powerful, Even if You Don’t Like Them. They’re the House Speaker or Something Along Those Lines.”
On Twitter, Todd Went on To Say that Catering His Show to “fringe-Y” Americans Is Not Something He Is Interested In
“if You Worry Too Much About Social Media and Start Pandering to Social Media Critics, You’re Catering to 7% of America and Possibly a Fringe Version,” He Explained. “I Mean, Twitter Isn’t Just for The 7% of The Population.
It’s the Smaller Fraction of [those] Who Believe Their Ideas — Who Are so Narcissistic that They Believe All of Their Thoughts Are More Important than Everyone Else’s.”
When Rosen’s Tweet Went Live on Saturday, the Backlash Against Todd’s Reporting Style Started to Pour In… It Wasn’t a Fun Experience
“yes, It Sounds Like a Perfectly Logical Argument for Granting Election Denialism Access to Your Massive Platform While Also Legitimizing Them,” Sarcastically Observed One Twitter User.
Another Tweet Agreed, “they Largely Obtain that Power by Being Given a Media Platform and Attention.”
Even if Todd Isn’t Going to See Them, Let’s Go Over Some of The Journalist’s Most Outspoken Opponents.
