NBC's Chuck Todd: Susan Rice 'Victim' Of Conservative 'Advocacy Media' - Politico

NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd today called U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice a "victim" of conservative "advocacy media" while addressing her decision to withdraw from consideration for secretary of state.

"She became victim of the attacks. ... and it was all driven, in many cases, by conservative outlets who were making her the center of the Benghazi story," Todd told MSNBC's Martin Bashir. "There were legitimate questions to ask about the Benghazi story, but the idea that she belonged in the center of those attacks never made a lot of sense. She sort of became a victim of this.

"It's too easy now in the way our media landscape is set up: You can become collateral damage in a hurry, in the way you can just get piled on whether it's Twitter, whether its advocacy journalism, talk radio. ... That's what she was. Make no mistake, she was political collateral damage," Todd said.


"There is now advocacy media that, I think particularly in Republican politics that they're very sensitive to, and elected officials become very reactive to it, potentitally overly reactive to it, and that has consequences like what we saw with Susan Rice," he said.

3. Hey Chucky Dick

Look in the mirror, you are one of the conservative advocacy media. Christ, the pot calling the kettle black.
