Todd Claims Ryan 'Distorted the Truth,' But Must Concede Ryan 'Technically Factual'
NBC News demonstrated again Thursday night it has become little more
than the more-watched broadcast arm of MSNBC, advancing the same
left-wing attacks on conservatives as first trotted out on the cable
side. While ABC and CBS managed to refrain from airing entire stories
and interviews aimed to discredit Paul Ryan, NBC did not.
In packaging Obama campaign talking points, however, Chuck Todd had to concede the accuracy of what Ryan asserted in his Wednesday night convention address, humorously leading Todd to conclude that “what he said many times was technically factual” but, “by what he left out,” he “actually distorted the actual truth.”
