Meet ‘The Press’? Chuck Todd’s Flagrant Lies In Gretchen Whitmer ‘Interview’

Chuck Todd interviewed Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer this morning and turned to the recent decision of the Michigan Supreme Court that ruled that she had violated the Michigan Constitution in her extended pandemic orders.

Todd did not challenge Whitmer stating falsely that the opinion was a “partisan” decision.

It was not.

Democratic justices agreed that Whitmer violated the Constitution. They only disagreed on the remedy. 

However, that untruth was quickly lost in what was a flagrantly untrue statement by Todd himself.

He told NBC viewers that the justices did not cite any cases to support their decision against Whitmer. The roughly 50 opinion contains over 60 cases discussed in support of the decision. It does not seem to matter anymore at Meet The Press or NBC.  NBC is not alone. I previously noted how the Washington Post also has failed to correct openly false accounts of cases.  Not only is there no apparent inclination to be accurate but even less expectation to do so.
