“Meet the Press” has been suffering a huge rating decline this year.
Chuck Todd, the host of the show, has been one of the most prominent left-leaning journalists that have been pushing narratives rather than actual news.
His transgression now reportedly has the new executive producer looking at whether or not to replace Todd on the show.
“Meet the Press” is and has been a staple on the weekend circuit, but ratings have been crashing.
Todd has fallen into the same trap that many other journalists have.
Rather than simply reporting the news, he is pushing an anti-conservative narrative.
A former CNN staffer, David Gelles, is taking over as the show’s executive producer, and he is reportedly looking to shake things up.
One “Meet the Press” staffer believes they really need to start looking at the face of the show as the reason for the bad ratings.
The staffer told the Daily Beast anonymously, “At what point does anyone have the balls to say, ‘Maybe the problem is the face of it?'”
Word is out, with Todd taking a nasty jab from Trevor Noah at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Noah asked him, “How are you doing?”
Then dropped a punch line, stating, “I’d ask a follow-up, but I know you don’t know what those are.”
If Todd is replaced, the consensus is that Kristen Welker, a longtime White House correspondent, would be his likely replacement.
