Eat, Pray, Love Make, Announce, Type

From Album 5

Turns out Stephen Colbert’s WHCA presentation wasn’t really satire after all.

MSNBC host Chuck Todd said Wednesday that when it comes to misinformation about the new federal health care law, don’t expect members of the media to correct the record.

Link.

I guess fact checking, asking real questions, and presenting accurate, timely infomation so as to keep an informed public, you know, informed, is for losers and geeks.

And Chuck’s waaaaay too cool for that.

    I did read Pierce, though I’d already stumbled upon the TPM piece. Talk about the descent of reporting. I remember being shocked when Tim Russert said he considered everything off the record unless told otherwise, which was the exact opposite of what I’d thought. And now Todd says he won’t even bother to call out blatant lies? Oh, I guess pointing out lies would be “librul bias.” Can’t have any of that…

    Oh sure! You libruls think that your so-called “facts” and “statistics” are supposed to have some meaning, and that if some Republican somewhere keeps nattering on about something that isn’t grounded in your alleged “facts,” that it’s up to reporters to “look stuff up” and “set the record straight.” But you don’t say how poor beleaguered reporters are supposed to do this! Chuck Todd is a very busy guy, and he doesn’t have time to go around “checking” “facts.” Do you have any idea what Todd’s social calendar would look like if he started mentioning these “facts” when he interviews Louie Gohmert or Rand Paul or Ted Cruz?
    You libruls are the *real* misinformers!

    Nicolle Belle from C&L wrote an open letter to the president of NBC News.

    Some people in the comments are saying they will copy it and also send it on to the pres, and bury her in letters.
    I agree with everything Nicolle said. Todd, Dancin’ Dave, and Morning Schmo have got to go!

    Dim Chuck was on my short list for Malaka of the Week. I assume you read Charlie Pierce’s take down of him. Heh, heh, heh.
