Daily Kos: Tom Brokaw, Chuck Todd Make NBC 'Conservative'

Over at the Daily Kos, Bill in Portland Maine wished Happy Birthday to his favorite economic truth-teller Paul Krugman, as he added “I admit I don’t know a fiduciary whatzamahoozie from a hole in the ground.”

But the really comical paragraph came on Friday, as he summarized the “vapidity” of this weekend’s Sunday shows, and just as the Kosmonauts think Bob Woodward is a Breitbart replica, somehow they can categorize not just Kathleen “I Agree With You, Eliot Spitzer” Parker as a conservative, but also Chuck Todd and Tom Brokaw. The Meet the Press panel was somehow 4 to 1 conservative: 

John Boehner drives the camera color adjusters bonkers; roundtable with Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), Kathleen Parker (WaPost), Joy-Ann Reid (Grio), Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd.  For those of you keeping score, that's a roundtable with four conservatives and one liberal.  Balance!

This Colbert joke he repeated is amusing:

"Anyone in the TV business knows that the best way to create a hit show is not to create one---instead, import a hit show from overseas. NBC's The Office came from Britain's The Office … and Chris Matthews' Hardball was adapted from the Irish children's program, The Very Angry Potato." ---Stephen Colbert
