Twitchy published an article on Thursday pertaining to NBC’s Chuck Todd, who interviewed with Rolling Stone, where he discussed his upcoming “Meet the Press” special focused on journalism and the weaponization of disinformation.”

Upon Todd’s interview, Stephen Miller, host of Versus Media Podcast, slammed the NBC host saying, “You lied to people,” including the network he works for. Additionally, Mark Levin reacted to Twitchy’s article and Todd’s comments.

Twitchy cited part of the interview from Rolling Stone with Chuck Todd:

Chuck Todd: For the last two or three years we’ve been pondering a social media special like this. Last year we focused on climate change. But had we not done climate change, we were in the social media world thinking about what it was doing to our politics. And then you realize it’s the misinformation. This is bigger than social media. The Ukraine story for me really crystallized it. And for good or bad, our show has been at the forefront of this. The first Sunday of the Trump administration is when the phrase, “alternative facts” was debuted. It was on Meet the Press Rudy that Giuliani used the phrase “Truth isn’t truth.” So look, whether we’d liked it or not, our platform has been used, or they’ve attempted to use our platform to essentially disseminate, or to sort of, what I would say, is lay the groundwork for this.

So I do think one of the things that I want to explore on this is the incentive structure. One of the things we don’t fully appreciate in mainstream media on these attacks is that it’s become fun to attack the press, if that makes sense, on the right. It doesn’t matter if we’re right or wrong, attack them anyway.

This is, to me, the greater challenge we have, which is that pretending the media is a liar or fake news and all this stuff, is sport. Trump has turned this into sport. People that are the loudest chanters of fake news and accusatory of us are the ones who, under a lie detector, would probably take our word over any word they’ve heard from the other side on whether something was poisonous or not. Hannity says drink it, and so-and-so says don’t. Who do you trust? So I do think that is something that this sort of cheering on falsehoods for sport, wow, have we gone off the rails on the right side of the silo of the conversation that’s taking place. 

Twitchy then noted Stephen Miller’s responses on Twitter to Chuck Todd’s interview and wrote: “Miller has just about had it with Todd’s self-righteous indignation over a grave the media dug for themselves.”

Stephen Miller had tweeted: “Chuck Todd shares office space with Joy Reid and Brian Williams and is lamenting to us common folk how misinformation spreads,” adding, “People like Chuck Todd wandering around the media wilderness wondering how misinformation spreads on social media and not taking two minutes to ask colleagues Brian Williams or Rachel Maddow is just incredible.”

He continued, “Chuck Todd is the Principle Skinner Children who are wrong meme, walking and talking. You lied to people, Your corporate media world lies to people, Chuck. People got tired of it. And they aren’t going to listen until you stop lying to them. This isn’t hard.” (Continued Below)

Mark Levin took to Twitter to react to Twitchy’s article and Todd’s comments calling the NBC host “one of the dumbest”.

“Delusional Chuck Todd, a propagandist who accuses his targets of HIS tactics. He’s one of the dumbest, most craven, and most ideologically-driven of the bunch,” Levin tweeted.

He added: “In short order, he’s done enormous damage to freedom of the press and the political system.”
