Wow! NBC picked the wrong guy to go up against!
"Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd used an extremely edited portion on an interview of Attorney General William Barr which he did with CBS News and zeroed in on one part of the interview and airing the very deceptive piece.
NBC may have just picked the biggest losing battle of all time after Attorney General William Barr responded to NBC’s host Chuck Todd’s airing a very deceptive video of his comments.
CATHERINE HERRIDGE: In closing, this was a big decision in the Flynn case, to say the least. When history looks back on this decision, how do you think it will be written? What will it say about your decision?
WILLIAM BARR: Well, history is written by the winner. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history. But I think a fair history would say that it was a good decision because it upheld the rule of law. It helped, it upheld the standards of the Department of Justice, and it undid what was an injustice.
Chuck Todd only played those first two sentences of his response, when Barr said, “Well, history is written by the winner. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history.”
Todd then used those two sentences to attack Barr, saying, “I was struck … by the cynicism of the answer. It’s a correct answer. But he’s the attorney general. He didn’t make the case that he was upholding the rule of law. He was almost admitting that, yeah, this is a political job.”
Todd failed to air the qualifying portion of his statement on purpose.
Watch it below:

Barr’s spokeswoman Kerri Kopek responded to the deceptive segment through Twitter and shared screenshots of transcripts and compared them to what Todd claimed Barr said.
Compare the two transcripts below. Not only did the AG make the case in the VERY answer Chuck says he didn’t, he also did so multiple times throughout the interview. pic.twitter.com/PR1ciceMmE

After the news broke that NBC aired a deceptive video about Barr went viral, Catherine Herridge who conducted the interview on CBS aired the video in context and even added a little jab at NBC News.
