The mainstream media is failing.
Chuck Todd’s Meet the Press Daily is being taken off of MSNBC and will now only be on NBC News Now, the network’s streaming service.
Meet the Press Daily with Chuck Todd will move from MSNBC to the network streaming service NBC News Now.
Starting on June 6, his daily show will stream as Meet the Press Now, marking the latest effort to expand the offerings on the free platform.
Todd’s Meet the Press Daily, also known as MTP Daily, had aired at 1 PM ET each day, and will move to 4 PM ET on NBC News Now. Chris Jansing will take over the 1 PM hour starting on May 26 with MSNBC Reports.
The show’s ratings have been trailing competitors. It averaged only 681,000 viewers in April.
This was far behind Fox News and even lower than CNN.
President Donald Trump previously called for Chuck Todd to be fired after he was caught deceptively editing a clip of Attorney General William Barr.
President Trump called for NBC to fire Meet the Press host Chuck Todd Sunday night after Todd used a deceptively edited video clip of Attorney General William Barr to smear Barr about his decision to drop the Justice Department case against former Trump National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (U.S. Army Ret.). Trump copied FCC Chairman Ajit Pai on his tweet.
Todd used a deceptively edited video clip from Barr’s interview Friday with CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge about the Flynn case. Barr was asked how history would judge his decision to drop the charge of lying to the FBI that Flynn had pled guilty to. Barr mused that history is written by the winners but expressed his belief “a fair history would say that it was a good decision because it upheld the rule of law. It helped, it upheld the standards of the Department of Justice and it undid what was an injustice.”
Todd aired a video clip of Barr’s answer that cut off the part where he spoke about the rule of law. Todd set up the hit job by saying to panelist Peggy Noonan, “Uh, you brought up Bill Barr, Peggy Noonan. I want you to listen to this Bill Barr answer to a question, ‘what will history say about this?’. Wait til you hear this answer. Take a listen.”
How long until Chuck Todd’s show is on cable access TV?
