Chuck Todd took Meet The Press to a new low on Sunday by introducing Megan McCain as a panelist.
Chuck Todd adds Megan McCain to Meet The Press panel
Megan McCain was made to lie at Meet The Press.
For example, when she claimed that Biden’s Build Back Better agenda is not popular:
Biden “ran and won with the help of independent centrists. … The Build Back Better agenda is the most advanced, cutting-edge agenda ever, up to $ 5 trillion, and it’s not doing well on the polls. I think I’m just confused why they double. ” – @MeghanMcCain
– Meet the press (@MeetThePress) September 26, 2021
Biden’s Build Back Better agenda is currently supported by 66% of Americans and 61% of Independents.
There are hundreds of elected officials who would be better panelists than Megan McCain. The late Sen. John McCain’s daughter is not a journalist. She is not an expert in any area of politics and has no political experience.
If her last name weren’t McCain, she’d work in retail in Tempe now.
Chuck Todd takes the press to a new low
It’s bad enough that Chuck Todd basically doesn’t book elected Democrats, even though Democrats are a majority in the House and Senate, and the President is a Democrat too, but he’s literally lowering the bar for guests to what used to be the gold standard was the talk shows on Sunday morning.
The Sunday shows have largely become irrelevant.
Top Republicans are sticking to their Fox News bubble, and top Democrats rarely appear on Sunday shows, Nancy Pelosi was on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, but for the most part, top Democrats will be months between Sunday shows appearances.
Megan McCain doesn’t belong on a Meet The Press panel, but Chuck Todd seems determined to make the show a semi-Fox News clone so viewers get a dose of Megan McCain’s lies, and Chuck Todd doesn’t wink with the eyes or offers a correction.
