NBC’s Chuck Todd tries to play himself off as some kind of objective journalist. He even recently attacked Sean Hannity by claiming he has a conflict of interest. But Chuck Todd has huge conflicts of interest that actually translate into real dollars. His wife has made a fortune working for Democrats.
The Blaze reports:
Chuck Todd gets questioned about hypocrisy – his wife’s company has been paid millions by Democrats
Days after blasting Fox News and host Sean Hannity over a potential conflict of interest, NBC’s Meet The Press host Chuck Todd was asked about his own undisclosed ties to interviewees on his show…
But during an interview Friday on the WABC-AM New York radio show Bernie and Sid in the Morning, hosts Sid Rosenberg and Bernie McGuirk asked Todd about his own undisclosed relationships with guests on Meet the Press.
Referring to Jeffrey Lord’s article in The American Spectator published the same morning, the radio hosts asked Todd to respond to the hypocrisy alleged in the column.
Lord goes through a litany of examples in his article, saying that while interviewing Bernie Sanders eleven times this year, Todd never disclosed the fact that his wife’s company had received almost $2 million from the Bernie 2016 campaign.
Todd’s wife, Kristian Todd, was also communications director for Jim Webb’s Senate campaign in 2006 — but Todd did not mention that relationship in his 2017 interview with Webb on “Meet The Press.”
Kristian Todd also made a $2,500 donation to Sen. Tim Kaine, but Chuck Todd failed to disclose that potential conflict of interest when interviewing Kaine three times since last summer.
How is Chuck Todd even allowed to report on American politics with all these financial ties to Democrats?
