NBC has taken a beating lately.
The Democrat debates last week were an epic failure and America noticed.
And it’s possible one NBC host is looking for a new job after a GOP governor destroyed him in 7 words.
If he doesn’t lose his job, he’ll be licking his wounds for a long time since the verbal assault was broadcast to millions of people on Fox News.
Former Governor Chris Christie took to the airwaves to let everyone know that after the Democrat debates NBC host, Chuck Todd needs a reckoning.
Speaking with Stephen Colbert, of all people, on a recap of the debates, Christie said he was ready to see Chuck Todd go.
Right after he ripped the candidates for their abysmal performances he castigated Todd, saying, “And please God, can we say goodbye to Chuck Todd?”
“I mean, the most, the most pretentious know-it-all on network news,” the former governor added.
“The guy is just a complete ass.”
No one with half a brain is going to argue with Christie on this subject. Chuck Todd has a long career of embarrassing himself, but also embarrassing the network he works for as well as the country he broadcasts to.
Lukas Mikelionis of Fox News agreed with Christie.
In an article, he said Todd’s performance was that of a reprobate. Then, he went on to point out it wasn’t just the right-leaning news networks who felt this way about Todd, even journalists on the left didn’t know why Todd was given the task of moderating a debate on primetime.
Oliver Willis who writes for the Democrat-friendly website Shareblue Media said Todd was “the worst” and then Slate, a bastion of liberals actually headlined a major story about Todd ruining the debates.
Their story ran front and center reading, “It was almost a good debate until Chuck Todd mucked it up.”
And Jeffrey McCall, a respected professor as well as trusted media critic blasted NBC’s decision to let Todd on the stage.
Not one to give deference to the left, or right, he showed Todd’s ineptitude as a moderator hindered the Democrat candidates’ ability to articulate their positions on issues.
“There is no reason to bring presidential candidates together for a ‘debate’ and then try to force them into one or two-word answers,” McCall said. “Todd was not so much interested in having the candidates differentiate themselves as to place himself in the middle of the event. The best debate moderators blend in seamlessly and only gently referee when needed. Todd wanted to be part of the show.”
With that many people against Chuck Todd, you have to wonder how long NBC is going to stick with him?
He looks like he’s a lost cause that doesn’t have the support of the left. And if one of NBC’s leading pundits doesn’t have their support, it means NBC will watch their audience shrink.
So it really could be the case Todd will be handing in his resume somewhere else soon.
