Chuck Todd Again Proves He Is Unfit For National Media




NBC's Meet The Press SNAFU: Chuck Todd


Host of NBC’s Meet the Press Chuck Todd apologized Monday morning for airing a video which featured convicted murderers expressing regret for committing gun violence, all of whom were black.
The segment received harsh criticism, predominantly from liberal viewers and outlets, for being racist in the wake of the murder of nine African-Americans at the hand of a white man in Charleston. The criticism was so harsh
Todd posted a long statement on the Meet the Press website defending airing the segment, but apologized on Twitter after being criticized by Al-Jazeera’s Soledad O’Brien.

Just inappropriate: "Meet the Press should make all viewers uncomfortable at some point or we are not doing our job"

@chucktodd @meetthepress the privilege of not having to be aware of your own color.

.@DoctorLeRoyH @soledadobrien We’ve heard you. We clearly got it wrong and we are sorry.
