NBC Writes off Calls to Investigate Biden, No ‘Huge Appetite’ for It

Tucked into the final minutes of Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC political director Chuck Todd led a panel discussion, featuring Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter and NBC Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt, where they groaned about calls to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for an allegation of rape. One even claimed there was no “huge appetite” for it. Meanwhile, the call they were whining about was designed to rig the investigation in Biden’s favor, and that wasn’t their complaint.

Reading a portion of a column written by The New York Times editorial board, Todd noted that they were “not satisfied” with the denials Biden made on MSNBC’s Morning Joe late last week:

The New York Times is not satisfied with the Vice President's answer. In fact, they write, “Mr. Biden's word is insufficient to dispel the cloud. Any inventory should be strictly limited to information about Ms. Reade and conducted by an unbiased, apolitical panel, put together by the DNC, and chosen to foster as much trust in its findings as possible.”

“So, Amy Walter, how much appetite is there in the Democratic Party to do something as extensive as The New York Times is outlining,” Todd wondered, as if letting the DNC run an investigation into their presumptive nominee was serious. Meanwhile, Todd and the rest of the liberal media were apoplectic that an FBI investigation into the bogus claims against Justice Brett Kavanaugh didn’t drag on for months and months.
