Calls grow to fire Chuck Todd for ‘malfeasance of journalism’ after allowing Republican to push pro-Trump falsehoods – By David Badash (The New Civil Rights Movement) / Nov 23 2020
Chuck Todd is once again under fire, as calls mount to fire the host of NBC News’ once-venerated “Meet the Press.”
Todd on Sunday hosted Republican U.S. Congressman Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, an early supporter of Donald Trump, and allowed him to lie on-air with nearly no push-back.
Among the lies Rep. Cramer spewed in just 21 seconds: The Obama administration spied on Donald Trump, the Mueller Russia investigation “started with no evidence and ended proving that there was no evidence,” and the impeachment of the President was “crazy.”
