Former Democratic Aide Chuck Todd: The Reason for the Decline of the Leftwing Media's Credibility Is... FoxNews

This is like blaming the failure of Hillary Clinton on Donald Trump.

But that's this Fat Thumb's story and he's sticking to it.

From The Hill:

"The conservative echo chamber created that environment," Todd said on "Meet The Press" while responding to an argument about the media's favorability from CBN News's David Broidy.

"It has been a tactic and a tool of the Roger Ailes-created echo chamber."


Todd made the assertion after Broidy invoked a 2018 Gallup/Knight Foundation survey that found Americans think 62 percent of the news they read, see or hear is biased.

Broidy argued that the poll should be considered when looking at the approval ratings of President Trump.

"I'd say on the Republican side they got exactly what they wanted, a guy that was going to shake things up. Look, I think one of the best things going in Donald Trum's favor -- we know this -- is the mainstream media," Broidy said.

But Todd aggressively pushed back against the assertion, saying Ailes had helped initiate the perception of media bias by the public.

He later added that the push from Trump to discredit the media was a strategy formed in his 2016 presidential campaign.

"I'm just saying it was a creation -- it was a campaign tactic," Todd said. "It's not based in much fact."

Ohhhh... right. The conservative echo chamber. There's no such echo chamber among the BlueCheckmark #HeroesOfTheResistance, obviously.

Though former Obama "mind-meld" partner Ben Rhodes did say he created an "echo chamber" in the leftwing media. And you know who covered that up? Why, the leftwing media.

Here's some possible reasons the public doesn't trust the media any longer: leftwing media outlets lying about the reasons two FoxNews reporters recently departed, and CNN refusing to correct its July 27th #FakeNews report that Michael Cohen would testify that Trump knew about the Trump Jr. meeting beforehand, despite their primary source, Cohen lawyer (and Russian oligarch personal foreign agent) Lanny Davis saying that he was wrong to claim that.

The leftwing media credits itself as being heroic and capable -- until the question of their own failures come up. Then they claim to be as helpless as kittens over their own fates.
