Rosen's timely takedown of Todd comes just days after he penned a piece slamming the NBC News/MSNBC host on his PressThink website, for his "strategic blindness." "Three years after Kellyanne Conway introduced the doctrine of 'alternative facts' on his own program, a light went on for Chuck Todd," Rosen wrote. "Republican strategy, he now realized, was to make stuff up, spread it on social media, repeat it in your answers to journalists — even when you know it’s a lie with crumbs of truth mixed in — and then convert whatever controversy arises into go-get-em points with the base, while pocketing for the party a juicy dividend: additional mistrust of the news media to help insulate President Trump among loyalists when his increasingly brazen actions are reported as news." Rosen slammed Todd for taking so long to see what many had already told him about the GOP, and then further ignoring it. "You cannot call that an oversight. It’s a strategic blindness that he superintended," Rosen charged, calling it "malpractice." Read Rosen's full article, "The Christmas Eve Confessions of Chuck Todd," at PressThink.
Meet the Press has booked a shameless conspiracy theorist, Senator Ron Johnson, for Sunday. Johnson says covid is fake and denied Biden won the election. He is MTP's most-booked Republican and has used the platform to spread lies more than any other senator. It is a true feat. pic.twitter.com/h1uPctXaEA— Matt Negrin, HOST OF HARDBALL AT 7PM ON MSNBC (@MattNegrin) January 1, 2021

"Fox & Friends" co-host Will Cain expressed outrage Tuesday morning over supporters of President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" cult being accused "insurrection" and "sedition," and the violent insurrectionists and seditionists who attempted to overturn the results of the election and attempted a coup on January 6 are being labeled "terrorists."
Cain, sitting in for Fox News' Brian Kilmeade, denounced the "Orwellian" and "authoritarian place" he sees America entering.
With America on edge and Trump still in power, state capitols on guard against far-right shock troops'
With less than a day until President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration—which will come in the wake of outgoing President Donald Trump's historic second impeachment for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol—Washington, D.C. and communities across the country are heeding the FBI's recent warning and bracing for more violence.
While, according to Military Times, Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy has authorized up to 21,000 National Guard members from throughout the United States to help provide security for next Wednesday's inauguration, the FBI earlier this week warned that right-wing groups are also planning armed insurrections in state capitals nationwide.
After the Trump administration released its report on the "1776 Commission," historians wasted no time firing back with brutal criticism of the 45-page document, purported to be authored by "some of America's most distinguished scholars and historians." But one historian, Torsten Kathke is noting that the committee responsible for developing the report consisted of mostly conservatives and Trump loyalists.
"Many others are already parsing the report of the 1776 Commission," Kathke tweeted. "This much here: It's a propagandist hack job. What interested me were the people involved with it. (They're pretty much who you would expect them to be.)"
