MSNBC’s Chuck Todd attempted to attack the credibility of the White House and it’s Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over her recommendation that viewers take a look at the new Project Veritas video, claiming that because Sanders hadn’t personally verified it’s contents that she was peddling Fake News.
“We take what we do seriously, because trust, viewers, and reader’s trust is all we have – and without that, we’re nothing. We get fired for not telling the truth.”
“Of course the White House attacks – delegitimize the media to create running room for it’s version of events.”
Todd then goes on to attack Sanders for recommending that people take a look at the Project Veritas undercover video which featured a CNN Producer admitting that the Russia narrative has been pushed for ratings, and is “mostly BS.” Huckabee said “whether it’s accurate or not, I don’t know – I think if it is accurate, it is a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism.”
This wasn’t good enough for Chuck Todd – who responded “Excuse me? You got that? I don’t know whether it’s accurate or not but go check it out because it disgraces you? Seriously? And that’s been this White House’s MO – peddle a false story to claim the media is telling false stories?
SORRY CHUCK – CNN confirmed the authenticity of their producer’s words to the Project Veritas operative, and the network said he would be able to keep his job because they value diversity. So, Chuckathan, the O’Keefe video is NOT Fake News, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders was simply stating that she hadn’t personally verified the video’s authenticity.
Bonifield didn’t know that he was being taped, according to a person familiar with the matter who was not authorized to comment publicly. The network is not disciplining Bonifield, and CNN editors are treating the comment as Bonifield’s personal thoughts expressed in a non-official capacity, the person said.
“CNN stands by our medical producer John Bonifield. Diversity of personal opinion is what makes CNN strong, we welcome it and embrace it,” CNN said in a statement. –USA Today
