Tucker Carlson: Chuck Todd Says It's Only FoxNews Which Has Eroded The Media's Credibility.
How About Chuck Todd's Own Silence In the Face of NBC's Weinstein Cover-Up?

I think it's notable that Chuck Todd has attempted not one but two Stray Voltage stories this past week:

1, his claim that Mueller would announce some big development in the Trump Russia Hoax Investigation by last Friday.

2, his declaration of war on conservative media.

Almost as if he knew he'd have to do some major distracting from NBC's credibility Chernobyl, as one NBC corporate lie after another is rubbished, with witnesses coming forward to call NBC liars.

Now Tucker Carlson brings the holier than thou former Ted Kennedy staffer into it, postulating that Chuck Todd certainly must have known about his own network's cover-up, even as he invented distractions to rally the leftist media to circle wagons around NBC.

And Carlson said he had "sources" telling him that Weinstein had private investigators who had dug into Matt Lauer's own #MeToo problems, and that they "believe" (note that wiggle word) NBC was therefore itself "compromised" by threat of having these charges outed.

"Is squelching first-person accounts of sexual assault by powerful men consistent with Chuck Todd's view of journalism? Is it ethical -- did Chuck Todd ever complain about this inside the building at NBC? Why did he not quit over it? Or is it better to shut up and pretend that sexual assault did not happen in the hopes of keeping the highest paying job that he will ever have? Maybe that is the answer."

Carlson, on his Tuesday night show, suggested that NBC sat on the Weinstein story because it was worried that the film producer would tell the world about accusations against former "Today" show host Matt Lauer, who resigned after sexual harassment allegations were brought against him in the wake of the Weinstein scandal.

"People close to the story" believe NBC was compromised by private investigators hired by Weinstein, Carlson said.

"We spoke to a number of people with direct knowledge of the story and here's what we got: Harvey Weinstein had a long and documented history of using private investigators to learn damaging information about people who threatened him," Carlson said. "He did that repeatedly to many people. He did it to The New York Times, for example. Did he do that to the leadership of NBC? People close to the story believe that he did. Some within the company believe that Weinstein threatened to reveal damaging information about NBCs then-biggest star Matt Lauer."

On Tuesday, NBC's Megyn Kelly -- a former Fox News host -- called on her own network to bring in an outside firm to conduct an investigation of how it handled Farrow's reporting on Weinstein, arguing it would be in the best interest of full transparency.

NBC is insisting on having its own internal cover-up people cover the story up, however.

Below, Tucker Carlson talks about this with Larry O'Connor.

By the way, Chuck Todd seems to be refusing all comment.
