Media bias is one thing. Rejection of reality is another.
Upon hearing the news of Eric Holder’s resignation from the Department of Justice yesterday, NBC’s Chuck Todd took to the airwaves and claimed that Holder is a very non-political person.
Media bias is one thing. The utter dismissal of reality is another.
Brendan Bordelon of National Review has the details:
NBC’s Chuck Todd: Self-Professed Activist Eric Holder ‘a Very Non-Political Person’
The host of NBC’s Meet the Press considers resigning attorney general Eric Holder — who once proudly declared himself an “activist attorney general,” called America a “nation of cowards” about race and took heat from his own White House for pursuing politically sensitive initiatives – ”a very non-political person.”
“He did a lot of the tough stuff that you would say, ‘Hey, the attorney general has to do tough stuff, this is not a forgiving job, you have to do tough stuff,’” Chuck Todd told MSNBC’s Tamron Hall on Thursday. “But, what’s interesting about him, he is a very non-political person. And I think people used to mistakenly think that this guy was this long-time political operative who happened to be an attorney general. That’s not him at all.”
Todd’s declaration set off a firestorm on Twitter.

If you doubt that someone who covers national politics for a living could say such a thing with a straight face, there is video evidence.DONATE
