Chuck Todd says NBC News can’t ‘in good conscience’ show video of Trump’s ‘vicious attacks’ on Hunter Biden
President Trump’s rally in Minneapolis Thursday night seems to have been a little too much for NBC News’ Chuck Todd, who had this to say about Trump’s comments involving Joe Biden’s son and his Ukraine business dealings:
WATCH: The president held a campaign rally last night and attacked Hunter Biden. We cannot in good conscience show it to you @chucktodd: "Politics ain’t beanbag, but it isn’t supposed to be this either. We all need to play a role in not rewarding this kind of politics" pic.twitter.com/ERPk4SJ0Yf

There was a little more to what Trump said as well that might have something to do with it:
Coincidentally Trump also attacked NBC and Chuck Todd during the Hunter Biden rant that NBC and Chuck Todd cannot in good conscience show us https://t.co/aVfcH1sfB6

So nice of Todd and NBC to have such a “conscience”:
It’s cute when the left-wing network that protected and ran interference for Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer pretends to have a moral conscience. https://t.co/V1gCte0Dcp

Isn’t it ironic?
What a co-inki-dink…

Sounds like Chuck needs a support pony. #NotAJournalist

Censoring the President of the United States to protect the Bidens.
This is a new low.

So @brianstelter liked this. Chuck Todd insisting he would refuse to air the president's attacks on Hunter Biden because he's somehow not a public figure.
The company that signs Chuck's paychecks ROUTINELY mocks the president's progeny as childish morons on "SNL." https://t.co/YOkLkoi31m

Censorship in service of The Democrat Party.

The purpose of a news organization is to inform, good, bad, and otherwise. It's too much for @NBCNews to stomach, eh?
Whether you like what a candidate has to say, perhaps even more so if you don't, it's your obligation to provide the news and let others decide for themselves.

Much of the mainstream media consider their job to be to filter to what people see and hear instead of just reporting what’s going on.
