Stunner! NBC's Chuck Todd: Obama Wants To 'Criminalize Journalism'
NBC’s chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd said Wednesday that the Obama Administration’s seizure of reporters’ emails and phone records is evidence that “they want to criminalize journalism.”
Who is this guy – and what has he done with the real Chuck Todd? Anyway, Todd said that if George Bush and Dick Cheney had engaged in spying on and seizing journalists’ private emails and phone records, “candidate Obama would be unloading.” (Exactly.)
Todd added that people he now talks with are “quite uncomfortable having conversations on the phone. Maybe that’s the intent.” (Ya think?)
The normally Obama sycophant added: “You can’t look at this and see it as anything other than an attempt to basically scare anybody from ever leaking anything ever again.” (Except, of course, leaks from the White House whenever it feels the need to toot O’s horn. See: Obama: “I killed Osama Bin Laden.”)
Todd isn’t alone in condemning O’s unprecedented attempted trampling of the press’s freedoms. Today, the New York Times blasted the Administration, as did “progressive” Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, who said “the Administration’s actions shatter the president’s credibility.”
Yes, Dana, they do; welcome aboard. Oh, and Chuck Todd? Kudos, dude; there’s hope for you yet.
