To Captain of NBC's slow-motion Hindenburg seems to be making Shuck Todd a trifle touchy:
Chuck Todd Takes A Beating In Facebook ChatChuck Todd has claimed special insight into the world of "trolling" in the past."Easiest way to attract trolls, write 'media' and 'bias' in a sentence," he tweeted last year.Equipped with that knowledge, NBC's new "Meet the Press" moderator waded into a Facebook Q&A on Friday ready to swat down any such hostility that came his way.When one user asked him why he is "always trying to win the midterm for the Republican Party," Todd was prepared."I think folks mistake analysis of political reality with cheerleading," he said.But that accusation of bias was tame compared to what followed."Was false equivalence your dream or did it come to you over time?" another user asked.According to Todd, that guy was on the wrong social media platform for that kind of sarcasm."Happy to answer any serious questions. If you want to snark, do it on Twitter," Todd said.Todd responded similarly when he was taken to task for not investigating "GOP Voter Discrimination or the Sequester to Blocking everything Obama wants.""Why didn't you ask me when I stopped beating my wife? Come on," Todd said. "Ask a serious question and I'll give you a serious answer. There's always more nuance to the facts that partisans, left and right, want to admit."...
The first step towards recovery of any Villager is admitting that they are powerless over false equivalences and Both Siderism and that our politics have become unmanageable thereby.
Clearly Shuck Todd has a long way to go before he hits bottom and begins to get healthy and sane, so for the good of his soul and our nation's mental health I think we all owe it to him to help accelerate his plummet towards nadir any way we can.
