Chuck Todd is becoming more and more unhinged it appears as the election is drawing near. Right now he's not even pretending to be an "objective" reporter anymore. He would fit in quite well the fools at FOX NEWS.
Apart from his usual nonsense he has been peddling for the last 6 weeks about "enthusiasm gap", and his playing around with that silly "Magic Map" giving Romney NC, FL and VA with no credible basis for doing so, he takes it a step further and tries to equate legitimate concerns about possible vote machine tampering in Ohio with birtherism!!!
Here's what he tweeted:
The voting machine conspiracies belong in same category as the Trump birther garbage.https://twitter.com/...

Really Chuck? If I recall correctly, the MSM (including the likes of Todd and his colleagues in the different cable networks) gave these birthers including Donald Trump a platform to spew their garbage and made it a legitimate topic, so much so that our President had to release his long form B.C. - something that no other President had to do.
I was heartened to see that Mr. Todd not only got push back from ordinary folks on Twitter, but he got called out by some of his colleagues and former colleagues on MSNBC.
From Keith Olberman:
Chuck!Your network EMPLOYS Trump, gives platform!
From Joy Ann Reid:
I respectfully disagree w/ my colleague @chucktodd on this. People not trusting the outcome of elections not= 2 birtherismhttps://twitter.com/...
I'm hoping that Lawrence, Rev Al or Martin Bashir calls him out on this as well.
