NBC’s Chuck Todd, who blasted Hannity over conflict of interest, has a few skeletons of his own

Pot, meet kettle. Mere days after NBC correspondent Chuck Todd lambasted Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity over his undisclosed connection to Donald Trump attorney, Michael Cohen, Todd was called out for his own conflicts of interest.

According to Fox News, Todd — who hosts his network’s long-standing Sunday news show contender, “Meet the Press” — was a guest Friday on WABC’s “Bernie & Sid” radio show.

Radio hosts Sid Rosenberg and Bernie McGuirk started their chat with Todd by admitting their friendship with Hannity, which resulted in the “Meet the Press” moderator claiming his beef was with Fox News for not forcing Hannity to explain his relationship with Cohen whenever the subject comes up.

“Just in the same way that any time that I’ve interviewed somebody that my wife has professionally worked for, I let people know,” Todd said.

McGuirk fired back, “Some say you haven’t done that all the time.”

Indeed, as Jeffrey Lord of The American Spectator notes, Todd conducted eleven interviews with then-presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders in 2016, but never mentioned even once that the company his wife founded, Maverick Strategies & Mail, received almost $2 million from the Sanders campaign.

There’s more. Per Lord via NewsBusters:

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).
