Meet the Press: The Ongoing Collapse

Life, Liberty & Levin is everything Meet the Press once was.

In 2007, a brilliant moderator named Tim Russert hosted the important Sunday news program called Meet the Press (MTP). Then, 12 years ago, MTP attracted 821,000 viewers aged 25 to 54.

The history of MTP is a storied one. It is considered the longest-running program in television history with its inaugural episode airing in 1947.

But the days of bipartisan comity and friendly debate ended with the unfortunate passing of Russert in 2008. After several false starts (does the name David Gregory ring a bell?), Chuck Todd was named the host in 2014.

Unfortunately, Todd turned out to be a disastrous choice. Todd’s extreme partisanship is perhaps guided by his wife (Kristian Denny Todd), who openly runs a Democrat propaganda operation. The firm provides “direct mail and consulting services for Democratic candidates and progressive causes.”

But Todd himself appears to be nothing less than a Democrat activist. While in college, Todd worked for the radical Marxist Tom Harkin (D-IA) who, in many respects, foreshadowed today’s far left 2020 Democrat candidates. Put simply, he was Bernie Sanders version 0.1.

Back to audience. In the coveted 25-54 age bracket, MTP recently attracted 688,000 viewers.

Which means Todd is only down nearly twenty (20) percent since the Russert era.

I’ll make a prediction here and now: Todd’s recent treatment of Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) -- when the MTP host actually shouted the Senator down -- was a disgrace. An embarrassing disgrace. When Johnson raised his firsthand knowledge -- not hearsay -- of Trump’s conversation with Ukraine’s president, Todd yelled at him about a “Fox News conspiracy.”

After seeing this debacle, author and radio host Mark Levin offered Sen. Johnson a coveted, one-hour slot on his Sunday night show to explain his firsthand experience dealing with President Trump and the President of Ukraine.

As an aside, Life, Liberty & Levin airs each Sunday at 10pm Eastern and attracts more than 2 million viewers each show.

Just sayin’.

Life, Liberty & Levin is everything Meet the Press once was. Chuck Todd is a nakedly partisan moderator -- he actually bans scientists from his show if they disagree with the Communist-inspired Green New Deal -- and a man who has no business anywhere near a real news operation.

Mark Levin, on the other hand, asks his guests open, not leading, questions. They articulate honest views in a unique, hour-long format.

In other words, Levin's show is what Meet the Press once was, long ago.

Comparing Mark Levin to Chuck Todd...is like comparing Trey Gowdy to Stormy Daniels

(No...NOT Michael Avenatti = Stormy Daniels)

This article reads as more of a commercial, poorly disguised as an opinion piece, by which I mean a hit job. But I've read worse.

I watch MTP a lot. Until recently, one of the things I liked most about Todd is I couldn't tell what side he was on. But w recent events I can see where any journalist or moderator would get frustrated w the republicans non answer answers. I can only assume they're too afraid of their pussy grabber in chief to answer any real questions. Really they should be ashamed.

Chuck Todd isn't very good. Someone like Chris Matthews would be good. Someone who well respected.

This is my third comment and I would like to see it published this time. I really like Chuck Todd and I think he is more than fair to both parties. He was probably fed up with Senator Ron Johnson's blind faith toward the president and his refusal to see the obvious or answer any questions that might enrage Trump. Enough is enough with these blind republicans who insist on carrying Trump's water no matter how obvious his lies or poor decisions may be. I wonder what Senator Johnson thinks now with the latest information about Trump's obvious quid pro quo and botched decision to leave our long time allies to die at the hands of our enemies. Mr Trump has our friends and enemies reversed in his muddled brain and should not be in charge of a pet shop let alone the country. He needs to go and so does Ron Johnson and all the other republicans and even some democrats who continue to support this man.

Seems that there are almost no "objective" newspeople now. Either you are on the right side (theirs) or you are worthy of contempt. I try to listen to the other side but get so turned off by the insults that I can't stand to watch. I'm sure some folks who disagree with me try to do this too with the same result. But folks - if we don't start listening to each other things will only get worse.

Anyone who remotely thinks Chuck Todd or the modern day left wing media circus channels are politically correct are apparently as ignorant as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. It's amazing to see how one sided Adam Schift is and how they conduct themselves behind closed doors because the rest of the real world has awoken and realized that being a Democrat is as stupid as believing Hillary Clinton was ever worthy of even being a candidate for the white house! You people are morons and you should get a life and not a socialist one!!!
