During a recent interview, NBC’s Chuck Todd dismissed the idea that the media has a liberal bias.
This is not only untrue, it’s an insult to the millions of Americans who remember how the media treated Trump and Trump supporters for the last four years.
The media not only has bias, they have proven time and time again that they will tell outright lies to hurt Republicans and help Democrats.
The Washington Examiner has the story:
Chuck Todd: Liberal bias in media? What liberal bias?
“I think objectivity and fairness are not the same thing, in some ways,” Todd said in a discussion with Verge Editor-in-Chief Nilay Patel. “You can’t define objectivity as sort of being equal, that we know. You can’t balance the truth, that we know. So you have to be fair and have an open mind. Where we did get lost in this, and this sort of happened to mainstream media, in particular, is that we did let Republican critics get in our heads, right?”
You see, the Meet the Press host continued, it is Republicans who created this myth of “liberal bias.” It’s not that the media are almost monolithic in their left-wing views or that the media themselves act in an objectively biased partisan manner…
“The Republicans have been running on, ‘There’s a liberal bias in the media,’” Todd said. “And talk about, if you say something long enough, there are liberals who say there’s a liberal bias in the media when you see polling now.”…
“The Republicans have subsumed all of this, and it’s turned into this,” the NBC News host continued. “We should have fought back better in the mainstream media. We shouldn’t [have] accepted the premise that there was liberal bias. We should have defended. I hear the attacks on fact-checkers where they ‘fact-check Republicans 6 times more than they fact-check Democrats.’ Yeah. Perhaps the Republicans are being factually incorrect more often than the Democrats.”
Todd has clearly convinced himself this is true, but the American people know better.
The people watched as news hosts like Todd pushed the Russia collusion hoax for four years, called Trump a fascist, and downplayed the violence of left wing riots for a year.
No one has forgotten a thing.
