(RightWing.org) – Liberal media outlets have never been fully truthful, but some of their top figures can’t seem to help themselves. Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet The Press” will spin any question to frame President Donald Trump or his allies in a negative light. This time, his show dishonestly portrayed one of Trump’s closest allies: Attorney General William Barr.
Today on Meet The Press, @chucktodd wildly took context out of an answer AG Bill Barr gave about his decision to drop the case into Gen. Michael Flynn.
I cut Todd's segment along with Barr's full answer together. Look at how blatantly dishonest this is. pic.twitter.com/tODOEwL48V

Barr’s remarks were cut short for Todd to take his statement completely out of context and run wild with it. When confronted with transcripts of both Barr’s original statement and the show’s version, Meet The Press said it was a mistake and apologized in a tweet Sunday evening.
You’re correct. Earlier today, we inadvertently and inaccurately cut short a video clip of an interview with AG Barr before offering commentary and analysis. The remaining clip included important remarks from the attorney general that we missed, and we regret the error.

Later, the president called for Todd to be fired.

Chuck Todd has a bad habit of spinning narratives that don’t perfectly align with centrist Democratic thinking. He relentlessly attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) during his presidential campaign, he’s asked highly-leading questions even to those in his group, like Joe Biden, and he’s okay with distorting video records to spin a narrative. Todd doesn’t seem to have a spine, and it might be better for everyone if he were cut loose.
