NBC’s Chuck Todd is not having a good week. First he claims that everyone is beating him up just because NBC keeps reporting false news. How dare you peons demand journalists do their jobs?!  Now he’s under fire for supposedly saying that it wasn’t his job to correct the GOP’s so-called falsehoods about Obamacare:

But did he really say that? Let’s go to the tape.

Transcript:

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell: “If you took ten people from different parts of the country who say they’re against the bill, and sat them down, I’d love to have ten minutes with them and say, “tell me why you’re against the bill.” And if they told you anything, it would be stuff that’s incorrect.”

Chuck Todd: “But more importantly, it would be stuff that Republicans have successfully messaged against it, and they wouldn’t have even heard – they don’t repeat the other stuff, because they haven’t even heard the Democratic message. What I always love is that people say, ‘well it’s your folks’ fault in the media. No, it’s the President of the United States’s fault for not selling it!”

Rendell: “Absolutely.”

Todd ‘s point was purely about the need for better messaging by the White House. But liberals are so angry that Americans hate Obamacare, they’re looking for scapegoats … and Chuck Todd has just the right goatee for it.

Even Wesley Crusher of Star Trek believes Chuck Todd is a Republican shill who should “probably be fired”:

Here’s Oliver Willis of Media Matters making the same false claim:

Todd tried to push back:

But once the leftists get going on one of their ridiculous memes, they don’t stop.
