A recent poll showing that roughly two-thirds of Americans believe bias exists in the news media had NBC News political director and “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd assigning blame:

Self-awareness takes another holiday:
“The conservative echo chamber created that environment,” Todd said on “Meet The Press” while responding to an argument about the media’s favorability from CBN News’ David Broidy.
“It has been a tactic and a tool of the Roger Ailes-created echo chamber.”
Ailes, who died last year, was the former CEO of Fox News and widely seen as a key figure in shaping the news network.
Maybe Todd should invite Dan Rather on the air to ask him if he agrees.
If I worked for a network that employed Brian Williams and Al Sharpton I'd approach this issue with a lot more humility. https://t.co/qAIHLN0kSY

Did Fox News edit a Mitt Romney video at a Wawa to make him look out of touch like his colleague Andrea Mitchell did? My god they don’t get it. The media is the Boy who cried wolf. Every republican is a wolf and this time we have one and they are ignored.

@chucktodd I’m pretty sure that my distrust started when Dan Rather and his crew produced the story on Killian documents.

And @NBCNews planting charges to blow up pickups in their ‘expose’ on fuel tank fires.

This genius thinks conservatives that hate the media do so because of the one freaking conservative outlet in a sea of liberal press? What a tool.
