If you have ever watched Meet the Press on NBC with Chuck Todd, then you’d know that Todd has more than a tendency to get incredibly agitated, angry, and ugly when interviewing those on the right side of the political aisle. In fact, his combative nature let’s you know how far the show has deteriorated since the late Tim Russert was the host.
Unlike Todd, one would not have known Russert’s political leanings because he was so professional and objective no matter who he was interviewing. Todd, on the other hand, not only wears his progressive politics on his sleeve, he wears it like bright, bold neon lights on his forehead.
Now Chuck Todd might make the claim that he treats all his guests the same but that would be an outright and blatant lie. What he did, or rather failed to do, Sunday morning while interviewing self-avowed socialist (really a Marxist) Senator Bernie Sanders, considered a leader of the Democrat party even though he is independent, makes it clear that he is biased.
Just two days ago news broke that Bernie and his wife Jane have hired prominent defense attorneys because they are under FBI investigation for bank fraud.
Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders’ top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.
According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.
News of Jane Sanders’ shenanigans while president of Burlington College in Vermont was known in 2016 but of course it never came up for Bernie during interviews or debates. Thanks to Chuck Todd, Bernie Sanders was once again able to appear on television to push his single-payer, Marxist claptrap without being asked about this FBI investigation.
Not. One. Question.
The folks on Twitter noticed and let Chuck Todd and NBC have it.
So @chucktodd just had Bank fraud Bernie on Meet the Press & didn't ask him one question about the charges. This would not happen to a Con.

Bernie Sanders just did a full segment of Meet the Press, but not 1 question about FBI investigation surrounding him. Chuck Todd is a joke!

This is why so many don’t take you seriously, Chuck Todd. You have proven once again that you are not to be trusted because YOU are fake news.
