Inside the mind of the media's chief clown

Needs to see a professional.
If you want a peek into the minds of today's media personalities, look no further than this article. Nicholas Fondacaro deconstructs a discussion on MSNMC featuring the network's political director, Chuck Todd. He's also the moderator of "Meet the Press," which used to be a real news show.

Todd is the one, you may recall, who sees himself as an enforcer of the political rules.
In a new ad to promote his MSNBC show MTP Daily, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd took to a basketball court and discussed the rules of the game. He then fretted: “But what about our politics, are there any rules anymore? And if so, will anybody play by them?” Todd assured viewers that he and his liberal network would be objective enforcers: “These days, politics could use a little refereeing. And we’re not afraid to blow the whistle.”
Todd, you may also recall, is the one who forgot to tell his viewers about his wife.
During the campaign, Todd failed to disclose that his wife, Kristian Denny Todd, was a Democratic operative who contributed to Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, and that her political firm aided Bernie Sanders’s presidential run.
Anyway, Todd explains how hard it is to cover President Donald Trump.
“But look, two generations of us as reporters. We're trained and conditioned to don't show emotion, we're the umpires and the referees. “When somebody is insisting on making you the story, what do you do? … I struggle with it.”
Then he want to talk about President Trump's "moral failings."
“Somebody tweeted that journalists today were never trained to cover moral failings very well. And in some ways, this is what makes this more difficult. We're not good with having to say what's right and wrong sometimes because again, we have been trained to be dispassionate and the umpire.”
Savor that for a moment. He said all this with a straight face. This man is a hack. He's a clown. This man is also severely delusional.

However, I can assure you that he did not have sex with that woman.
