In another mainstream media fail, NBC's Chuck Todd allowed Congressman Steve Scalise to use the airwaves to change history. Unfortunately, while Todd and Scalise cannot fool activists, a large percentage of Americans will be.

Chuck Todd allows another GOP snow job

Watch Steve Scalise take Chuck to the cleaners. It is as if he did not understand what was happening as he tried to be Steve's sort of 'political equal.'

The following is clear after watching the interview.

  • Steve Scalise left the false impression that the Democrats with the help of the FBI was spying on Donald Trump with the help of foreign agents.
  • He asserted that it was Obama who dropped the ball on Russia as opposed to McConnell and the Republicans holding the 'election politicization' hammer over his head.
  • And he made the false assertion that Donald Trump is aggressively fighting Russian intervention in the 2020 election

Chuck Todd left all those fallacies unchallenged. And in doing so to many, they are now truths. Maybe Todd should have read the Vox article that refutes everything Scalise had to say before conducting the interview.

As the American intelligence community gathered evidence through the summer of 2016 that Russia was responsible for the hacks of Democratic targets that resulted in the WikiLeaks dumps, President Barack Obama's administration briefed congressional leaders and sought to put out a bipartisan statement sounding the alarm about the Kremlin's efforts.

But according to the Washington Post's blockbuster 2017 report about how the Obama administration tried to handle the Russian effort, McConnell scuttled the White House's plans, citing "skepticism that the underlying intelligence truly supported the White House's claims" and concerns the administration was just playing partisan politics.

Chuck Todd once again allowed NBC's Meet The Press to be used as a medium of Republican misinformation without any attempt to push back on the fallacies. This behavior is not new but is one reason why Progressive Independent Media must remain on the watch.
