An announcement from the Poynter Institute naming NBC’s Chuck Todd the “media personality of the year” while calling his Meet the Press the “gold standard” was met with derision and laughter on the internet which has long hammered the NBC host for his failures to push back at guests making ridiculous assertions as well as his habit of not asking follow-up questions.

Trump spokesperson resorts to insulting CNN host in off-the-rails interview over president’s tax scandal

Published

A CNN interview with Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh quickly turned into a shouting match after host Jim Sciutto peppered him with questions about the president's federal tax avoidance that was comprehensively covered in a New York Times report.
