Chuck Todd appeared on a podcast called The Mike O’Meara Show on Tuesday, and made several jaw-dropping claims. When O’Meara asked about charges of liberal bias, and whether he gets blowback about the point of view of Meet the Press, he denied one: “There’s no point of view to Meet the Press.”
Then he added a slam of MSNBC: “I think advocacy journalism, sort of the Fox and what MS[NBC] primetime, those models, that hasn’t been healthy for politics.” (Daytime, where Todd used to have a show, is healthy; but primetime is poisonous.)

Actress Debi Mazar thinks Italy has “a lot of oppression” since “it’s where the Vatican is,” she said Wednesday in an interview with HuffPost Live.
The Queens-born Entourage regular is the lead of a new TV Land series called Younger, where she plays a single mother who is gay.
“I don’t really think in those terms because I just think people should love who they wanna be in love with,” Mazar told host Marc Lamont Hill in the segment. “So I’m just playing someone, Maggie, who’s a person, who happens just to like chicks instead of guys.”
Mazar blamed Catholic influence when asked to comment on the recent tiff between performer Elton John and designers Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, the team behind the luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana.
