MSNBC’s Chuck Todd should win Josef Goebbels Truth in Media Award [VIDEO]

It has been said (and oft repeated by yours truly), “in a universe of deceit, truth becomes a revolutionary act.” Want to visit that universe? Just flip the channel and tune into any liberal progressive media stations. I guess that’s why the revolutionary upstart Fox News has won the title of being “most trusted.”

Over in the universe of deceit, we have Chuck Todd of MSNBC, who spent a segment of his show, “The Daily Rundown,” to mislead his audience into believing the IRS scandal is something it’s not.

As Breitbart puts it, “NBC Senior White House Correspondent Chuck Todd’s Nixonian defense of the IRS earlier this week was so intellectually dishonest and filled with lies of omission, regardless of your political beliefs, no intellectually honest person can watch without marveling at the mendacity.”

Watch it for yourself below. Todd asks if there are any “real victims” in the IRS scandal – obviously he wants you to say no.

Breitbart points out “Todd does not bother to inform the viewer that conservative political groups were the ones singled out, harassed, and paralyzed (with endless red tape in the form of audits, intrusive questions, stalls, and paperwork) by their own government in the run-up to a presidential year.

Not once does Todd inform his viewers that a number of Democrat lawmakers asked the IRS to single out conservative groups in this fashion — to include House ranking member on the Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland).”

Chuck Todd’s goal is to marginalize – if not ignore — the issue of IRS targeting and focus attention instead on the fact that political groups are allowed to file for tax-exempt status. That may be a valid question, but it is the law. What is not lawful is the government selectively singling out and punishing only certain groups for its own political gain. Imagine if the IRS had only targeted gay organizations?

This is why those “man on the street” segments are so disturbing – because there is a deliberate manipulation of information by the liberal media in order to promote a certain progressive political agenda. I wonder how many liberal media viewers even know what ISIS is or can find Crimea on a map?

I have to laugh when liberal progressives have no clue what the national debt was when Barack Hussein Obama became president and what it is today. I will defend the First Amendment right of freedom of the press — but is this a free press or a politicized government press? With their freedom, the press has the responsibility of not abusing it or promulgating lies and distortions to support their own ideological agenda — which is what’s happening. And it’s been happening for some time.

Even during the Vietnam War, the trusted voice of Walter Cronkite reported a defeat for America in the Tet Offensive, when that was not the case. However, the ideological agenda was to erode public support for Vietnam. The media complied and used their means to that end.

Today we have mainstream media that presents only certain stories and buries others. Consider the left-wing media obsession with New Jersey Governor Christie and “Bridgegate” — yet college students can’t even tell you where Benghazi is — heck, watch this video if you don’t believe me.

So Chuck Todd, you are hereby nominated for the “Josef Goebbels Truth in Media Award.” Competition is tough, but I think you’re head of the class.

What is missed is the groups targeted period. It doesn’t matter what the groups beliefs, or association was. When an agency such as the IRS, targets anyone, what is to stop them from turning on the American people? It is not who they targeted, it is that they targeted in the first place…….

How many horror stories are there? It is set up hard against a small business with a sole proprietor. Never get behind with the IRS, and make a payment plan, penalties and interest will outweigh the debt. We need to revamp the entire system, including this maniacal war between two myopic parties.

So taxpayers who give their hard earned POST tax funds to a political organization should now expect to have their funds re-taxed? Is he kidding? And since the IRS is so unbiased, I am sure that enforcement will be meted out judiciously.

Here’s the thing, the IRS apologized for their overzealous audits of conservative groups. Name another time in history that the IRS apologized for anything…

Fox doesn’t claim to have a crystal ball. They deal with facts about current events and apparently the people trust them.

Rafael X

Why are they making predictions then? Nate Silver didn’t have crystal ball either.

somatic7

The title was given to Fox because people trusted them with facts. You started talking about predictions which has nothing to do with why people trust them (remember, it’s facts). I pointed this out and you went back to talking about predictions. I’m not one to defend Fox’s every move but to make this about predictions or the title of most trusted is to scream your lack of ability to stay on topic or be right.

This is an example of where it would be good for you to find the answer to your own question. The poll was conducted by both the Brookings and Public Religion Research Institute and the left wing Public Policy Polling organization. Both basically say that MSNBC sucks and is on it’s way out while Fox is most trusted by people who watch cable news. But who needs polls when you have Chuck Todd to prove what everyone knows already?

You should try to find the answers to your own questions, then post the answers if you find them. No one has the time to fact check every doubt-slinger that posts a distracting question because, in the end, it gets people focusing on things that are less than unimportant while the important issues stroll on by unnoticed.

The IRS harassed TEA Party groups and Fox News covered the story like they should’ve because it’s important. No crap there. But you’re making it your job to defend MSNBC even though you know for a fact they’re distorting the reality of the scandal. That’s why you keep going on about a non issue like Fox instead of confronting anyone on this thread about what this article is actually about; MSNBC.

The comment was directed at that.

Take your own advice leftard. The topic is Todd. Have your mother read you the title of the story. Raffy loves to hijack threads.I guess you’re his pathetic houseboy who carries his water.

Quality of news is based more on the ability to get facts to the public. Judging by the bore we saw in the video, MSNBC has neither the ability nor the facts.

Rafael X
Guest

Not if you compare it to Karl Rove’s meltdown on election night.

somatic7
Guest

Again, it’s about the facts. Did Karl mislead the audience with false info? Did he lie? Or did he just get emotional? I don’t care if he pulls out a gun on camera and blows his mind out, as long as he gives the truth. Now can you admit that MSNBC is at least misleading with this story?

Rafael X
Guest
Ok let’s forget Karl and Megyn Kelly’s legs for a minute and pretend you really want to debate the journalistic merit of this story. How is the story misleading? Both liberal and conservatives are arguing that the IRS targetted them. As anyone ever even single out one particular group that was the target of the IRS. Didn’t he mention those 2 years worth of emails you guys keep freaking about? All he does is admit that no one knows exactly if that took place and if those groups, liberal or conservative should even exist.
somatic7
Guest
^ That’s kind of hard to read, and most of the answers to your questions are in the article above, but I’ll tell you how I see reality. The story is misleading because Chuck is moving the goal post. America is saying factually that the IRS specifically targeted TEA Party groups for political gain and Chuck is saying ‘Even though Democrats broke the law, let’s focus on something else so we don’t look bad.’ Liberals only argued that they were being targeted by the IRS once conservative groups proved it was the conservatives being targeted, which means that either liberals… Read more »

Why then did the IRS apologize for harassing (inappropriately flagging) tea party groups? Were they sorry for doing their job the right way?

Calvinius
Guest

Because of political pressure from above, that’s why. Whenever people get outraged at the IRS, it tends to be politically non-viable for a politician to tell them “no, the IRS did nothing wrong.” Even when that’s the truth.

somatic7
Guest

If that’s the case then you’re basically saying that the politicians you voted for are cowards who have absolutely no backbone to defend the truth or even try to uncover it. You’re saying they run from TEA Party groups like pansies in the wind instead of combating the TP with evidence of their own. But I don’t think your politicians are that weak. I think they’re that wrong.
