At the end of June, I penned a piece about Chuck Todd with the opening salvo, “You can’t have anyone that stupid be in charge at NBC.” Now I hear that Chuck Todd is planning on taking over David Gregory’s spot on Meet the Press. That is an utter trainwreck.
Chuck Todd is often uninformed on the topics he is tasked with discussing. Otherwise, he must be disingenously preying on low-information viewers to not know information in the first place.
David Gregory was not that great in his role of Meet the Press moderator. But to hire NBC’s political director, chief White House correspondent, and MSNBC host as the replacement, is ridiculous. Meet the Press will continue to decline as a formidable weekend talk show force.
