[Ed. – The networks no longer pretend impartiality.]
In a revealing recent interview with Rolling Stone, Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” discusses what led him to begin approaching Republicans and others on “the right” with more skepticism and reporting on their claims in a less “naive” way than he had in the past. In his comments, Todd indicates that he does not view Democrats and their claims in the same skeptical light.
The interview was conducted as part of an upcoming “Meet the Press” special on the “weaponization of disinformation,” which, according to Todd’s comments to the Rolling Stone, appears to approach the topic from a glaringly one-sided angle.
Asked what made him decide to devote a show to the topic of “disinformation and fake news,” Todd said it began with an interest in the impact of social media on politics, which he said is ultimately really about “misinformation.”
