Jonathan Turley accuses Chuck Todd of “indoctrinating the public” after airing out of context clip of Kayleigh McEnany

Last week we told you about CNN’s Jim Acosta smearing Kayleigh McEnany with an out-of-context quote from her press conference on Thursday while CNN’s Jake Tapper pushed back, noting the full context.

Well yesterday morning Chuck Todd aired the same out-of-context clip during Meet The Press. I’ve got it cued up for you to where Todd begins with a clip of Trump and then to McEnany:

Jonathan Turley blasted Todd for airing this, especially when it was days after the press conference and there was no excuse:

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley blasted NBC News’ Chuck Todd for airing an out-of-context clip of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, saying his decision was even more egregious than a similar move by CNN’s Jim Acosta.

“If an ill-considered tweet is a venial sin for Acosta at CNN, this is a mortal sin for Todd at NBC. This was no careless tweet, but an airing made long after the false account was flagged during the CNN controversy,” Turley wrote.

Turley also called Todd out on Twitter after it happened:

Turley ends by noting that Todd is no longer informing the public, but ‘indoctrinating the public’:

I can’t argue with that at all. I know Turley is still a Democrat, but I do like how his eyes have been opened in the era of Trump to the blatant media bias and fake news the right has been talking about for years.
