NBC News’ chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd said Tuesday that it’s a “mythology” that there’s an anti-conservative media.
Todd was on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and lamented the fact that there are “fewer and fewer Republicans that will go on non-Fox shows.
“I think that the mythology of the big, bad non-conservative media has gotten into some offices,” Todd said. “There’s this fear of, ‘oh we can’t do, we can’t do anything that’s not [Fox]’…I feel like it’s a mythology that now younger staffers believe and then it infuses, and then these guys, they actually believe the spin that’s out there, ‘oh my God, that’s what the mainstream media does, they do anything to disrupt the conservative agenda.'”
He continued, “And so literally, you only–[South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham], John McCain, you know, that’s been my, I just fear that it’s sort of like this whole, there’s this whole sort of this, the mythology of this, that the media’s out to get conservatives is believed among more and more actual staffers.”
