'Not Based in Much Fact': Chuck Todd Shuts Down Christian Broadcaster Over 'Biased' Media Claims

NBC host Chuck Todd blamed Fox News and Roger Ailes for the state of distrust around American media and dinged a Christian broadcaster appearing on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

“One of the best things going in Donald Trump’s favor — we know this — is the mainstream media,” Christian Broadcasting Network reporter David Brody said. “I hate to say it. I know I’m sitting on a Meet the Press roundtable, but the truth of the matter is 62 percent think the media is biased.”

“The conservative echo chamber created that environment,” Todd interjected. “It has been a tactic and a tool of the Roger Ailes-created echo chamber.”

“So, let’s not pretend it’s not anything other than that,” Todd continued.

“Many Americans distrust the media. It’s not just Republicans," Brody retorted.

“I’m just saying it was a campaign creation, a campaign tactic,” Todd countered. “It’s not based in much fact.”
